The World’sNew Natural Active
Mende Biotech Limited was established in 1999 to:
Develop and commercialise the manufacture of Totarol™
Focus on research and development in native plants for medicines and oils
Establish sustainable and natural extraction methods to supply a selected client base.
Totarol™ is extracted from recycled Podocarpus totara heartwood using supercritical CO2.
Totarol™ is a pale yellow powder/solid which has no taste and minimal aroma.
Totara can live for up to 1000 years – Totarol and related compounds in Totarol™ protect the tree from microbial attack
Totarol™ is a natural extract enriched in the aromatic diterpenoid, Totarol: C20H30O.
It also contains other bioactives
related in structure to Totarol.
Totarol™ is a naturally occurring plant extract with potent anti-bacterial activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
Totarol™ is active against acne and tooth decay bacteria, and is one of the rare phytochemicals active against penicillin and methicillin resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus
Creams and oils
Totarol™ is a potent antioxidant for unsaturated fats and oils, and does not lose its activity with time, c.f. vitamin E
Totarol™ strongly inhibits
lipid peroxidation and
scavenges ROS (reactive oxygen species)
Skin care products
Toothpaste/Oral care products
Baby Nappy rash creams
Anti Acne solutions
Hair care products
It can be used as a preservative base but has to be combined with an anti-mould substance
Add under heat with any oil; add to ethanol; mix under heat with base ingredients in the early stage of manufacture. Totarol™ does not degrade under heat.
The percentage of Totarol™ to use should be around 0.1%
There is an abundant supply of stumps, fence posts, and old house piles, as well as fallen logs, which will guarantee a regular supply for decades to come.
There is an abundant supply of the raw material (dead wood) from the native totara tree available
We have developed a novel, patented, supercritical extraction process to give us our unique product, Totarol™.
