What Is a Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oil?

Agape Beauty chooses to use only the most pristine ingredients that provide profound healing benefits for the mind, body and soul. We have chosen to use only the most potent and pure ingredients that have all been provided by nature in their organic form and that are all bioavailable to create healing on a cellular level. Some of those ingredients are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oils (CPTG™). These essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial oils on the market today. They are guaranteed to be 100% pure with no artificial fillers or contaminants and have every vial of every batch tested by a third party to ensure extract purity and composition potency for every drop. What does this mean to you? Our products do so much more than smell good; these CPTG™ oils enter in to every cell of your body to help purge toxins and, with continued use, generate healthy, youthful and vibrant new cells.

There are a great number of variables that influence the actual essential oil you carefully use for the well-being of you, your family, and friends. For example, a 15 ml bottle of essential oil was extracted and distilled or compressed from 30 to 300 pounds of plant matter. Of utmost importance to you is:

  1. Where and how was that plant grown?
  2. What were the soil conditions?
  3. What were the water conditions during the growing season?
  4. Were there any insecticides, pesticides, or herbicides used?
  5. Is it truly organic?
  6. When and how was the material harvested?
  7. Was it the right season?
  8. The correct maturity of the plant?
  9. The optimum time of day?
  10. What about the processing?
  11. Were proper cleaning and preparation made with the equipment?
  12. Were the correct parts of the plant used in the distillation process?
  13. Were temperatures maintained at proper levels?
  14. Were the clean and viable containers used during the process and for gathering?
  15. What about packaging and distribution?
  16. Were the clean and viable containers used during the process and for gathering?
  17. Was there any cutting (adding other similar and hard-to-detect less expensive oils) done to lower the cost of the oil?

These and other questions are very important to each of as we use essential oils and their derivative products. It would be impossible for any one of us to answer all these question.  Fortunately, the company we have chosen to source all of our essential oils from is making it their business to answer the questions for each of us. They use the most modern Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectroscopy testing through a third party to assure us that testing standards will meet or exceeding ISO and AFNOR standards. As a pledge of this quality they label these products with their trade marked seal of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™.

Below is a chart that shows the types of Essential Oils that are common in the industry.

  1. The first is “Synthetic”; which is used in the Perfume and Industrial industry. These oils are made up of synthetic compounds or are chemically engineered. This makes up the biggest part of the Essential Oils sold today.
  2. The second is “Food Grade”; these oils are used in the food industry. For an Essential Oil to be used in the food industry it only has to pass as “Generally Recognized as Safe”, commonly known as the GRAS Standard.
  3. The third is Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. These can be purchased in grocery stores, body and bath stores, health stores, etc. For many years, this has been the highest standard of oils in the market.
  4. Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils go through a testing process called Gas Chromatography. Most reputable companies in the Essential Oil industry conduct this test. This test checks and insures that the oil contains the correct compounds; however, it does not determine if the oil contains any impurities, pesticides or other chemicals.
  5. The second test is the Mass Spectrometry test which checks all the compounds in the oil and also checks for pesticides or any other impurities that may be present in the oil.

The small dot in the center represents the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils. This is the highest standard of Essential Oils in the market today. All Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oils are third-party tested so that the company has no influence over the results of the tests. CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure, natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates and that’s what you need in an essential oil that you are using as a natural pharmaceutical and why we use only CPTG essential oils in Agape Beauty’ products.
