SwissMixIt Micro Extractor and Formulation System

SwissMixIt Launching Soon: Micro Botanical Oil Extractor and formulation system (SwissMixIt), using the most advanced induction mixing technology. From farm to table, this oil extractor is perfect for full spectrum hemp and other nutraceutical and essential oil botanicals. Patented silent solid state technology allows touchless extraction and mixing, in the same dispenser, for topical use.  Buy organic botanical material, (including hemp, moringa, gooseberry, oregano, etc.), grind, put in dispenser/extractor to process, and you have a finished project ready to use in a standard Mason jar and dispenser pump. This is perfect for organic botanical powder which cannot be otherwise easily extracted because it is in powder format, which is hard to contain. The powder and Chlorophyll (green bitter pigment) do not go through the high filtration system. This is a method of in-situ extraction using a solid state touchless mixer using magnetic induction.

SwissMixIt: The system gives you a DIY solution to make essential oils, creams, soaps, craft vinegar, fermentation, and a host of other solutions which you make yourself to insure quality and authenticated ingredients.

Home use unit $449 USD: What’s in the box: Induction mixing base (US power cord 110V), extraction jar with pump dispenser, oil filtration unit (in-situ as part of the pump dispenser).

 

How It Works: Using a carrier oil (most vegetable oils work), touchless induction mixing and time, the oil in the botanical is pulled out and is attracted to the carrier oil. As a topical oil, this is the holy grail of extraction since it is simultaneously mixed with the oil as it can be applied to the skin in the same container with dispenser pump. For oregano oil (considered a hot oil), we recommend the bottom of the feet. For Amla (Gooseberry) we recommend anywhere on the skin. For hemp, topically on the body for aches and pains.

Can I use this to produce commercial topical products ? Yes. This is perfect for DIY small business extractions. You can mix then put into standard Mason jars with dispensers which you can buy from Amazon. We will offer a DIY plans and Amazon links kit shortly.

Is this better than commercial processing ? Yes. From farm to table, you control the extraction, without any unknown processing. If you are buying hemp, buy from a reputable farmer, and confirm they are on the state registered grower list. Request a COA (Certificate of Analysis) to confirm it’s legal, and has all the components for a good quality oil extract. Buy a dried product. If you purchase a wet or freshly harvested product, you’re buying 50 percent water weight. Buy the material by the pound. Do not buy based on a points system or other confusing redirects. You should be able to buy quality hemp for $30 or less per pound (we’ve seen it as low as $2/lb). You’ll find groups trying to sell smokable hemp for up to $100 a pound. Buy fresh, or a properly dried hemp flower product from last fall. Do not buy any product from the prior year harvest unless it was properly dried and stored and comes with certification (COA).

How efficient is the carrier oil extraction process ? The process varies depending on mixing rate and time, but expect around 80 percent or higher. This method produces a full spectrum high quality craft oil. The best part of a in-situ extraction is that the consumer gets the entire product, and it only gets better with time. 100 percent of the botanical and extract are in the same Mason jar container, which is also the extraction and pump dispenser device. The magnetic touchless induction base mixer reduces oil infusion time from weeks to a few hours or less.

Why can commercial ethanol hemp processing be bad ? The problem with fly-by-night ethanol processors is that you don’t know what you’re getting. Ethanol processing can be a sketchy processing method. Many unreputable ethanol processors use charcoal filters to filter out chlorophyll (green color and bitter taste). Unfortunately, this also filters out the primary healthy medicinals (CB D) from the hemp, which renders the medicinal effects of hemp virtually useless and hoodwinking the consumer.

Can the stainless steel filter be reused ? The food-grade stainless steel filtration element can be put in a dishwasher (or ultrasonic cleaner) and reused. The standard filter element used for topical use, should be clean after each use.

Do you offer discounts for volume purchases for those who want to make a business or resell products ? Yes. Please contact us for details.

What sizes of Mason jars are there ? Standard Mason jars come in 8 oz, 12 oz., 16 oz., and 32 oz. sizes. You can then sub-divide the extract solution into small 1 oz bottles for retail sales.

Can this be used for other antioxidant botanicals ? Yes. We actually recommend Oregano, Amla (Gooseberry) and other similar botanicals rich in antioxidants, and which are considered superfoods. You can grow herbs yourself (dry and grind), or purchase certified botanicals in dried format (grind prior use), or purchase organic and certified powder.

Can I use this for saponification and making liquid soap ? Yes. The benefits are mixing the solution in a pump dispensor Mason jar. You must not re-use the container for any food products. As an added benefit, you can mix in botanicals, including black tea, which has been shown to have an effect on Covid-19 (when ingested which would only effect mouth and throat – not lungs). “We reviewed the antiviral activities of two polyphenols derived from tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) from green tea and theaflavins from black tea. Both green tea and black tea polyphenols have been reported to exhibit antiviral activities against various viruses, especially positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses. Theaflavins (TFs) are another class of polyphenols found in abundance in black tea… and are being researched for their bioactive properties and are known for their broad-spectrum biological properties, like anti-tumor, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and anti-bacterial properties. After extensive studies on these polyphenols regarding their specificity, activity, bioavailability and safety, there can be considerations on their use in treatment of viral infections including COVID-19.”

Can I use this for making craft or artisanal vinegar and fermentation ? Yes. With the optional fermentation kit and air pump, you can make craft vinegars. Vinegar is a liquid of acetic acid with trace ingredients including flavoring. Typically produced by the fermentation of ethanol or sugars (with the help of yeast) by acetic acid bacteria. Types of vinegar are made depending on source ingredients. This first step usually results in a alcoholic product like beer, wine, and mead. The second step turns those into vinegar with the help of acetic acid bacteria, and gives vinegar its sour flavor. Slow fermentation can take months, or even years to finish. However you can reduce this time to a matter of hours by pumping in oxygen into the solution which promote faster fermentation. This is done with the Cosmetpod by replacing the pump device with a simple air pump (same as used with aquariums). The ingenious Cosmetpod stainless steel filter can also be used to breakup pumped air into thousands of small air injectors, which increase fermentation in the Mason jar solution. The stainless steel filter element can be used both for filtering and oxygen injection. Best of all, the same Mason jar platform can be used to extract antioxidants and then use those with vinegar to make a truly revolutionary food product, with even more nutritional benefits.

Can I use this for making artisan sourdough bread and proofing yeast ? Yes. With the optional fermentation kit and air pump, you can use this to rapidly rise yeast.

Skin Treatment

Establishing a daily routine gives your body a the best dose of strength to provide a vibrant appearance and attitude.

Morning Beverage: Mix together green tea and black tea. Then add in 1/4 teaspoon of Amla powder. Instead of tossing the used teabags, rub them over your hands first, and wring out the moisture and nutrients. Antioxidants work on the inside, and topically on your skin.

Exercise: A body that is in motion increases blood flow, a healthy heart, bone density, and other factors that increase your immune system and ability to ward off the effects of sickness and environmental damage. Ever notice how fit people just look better ?

Late Afternoon Beverage: Mix together green tea and black tea. Then add in 1/4 teaspoon of Amla powder.

Providing your body with a simple daily regime gets your appearance off to a great start.

We cite science with all our products, so you can see the interaction and results.

Whole Body Wellness

Montreux Cosmetics is reinventing the cosmetics and whole body wellness industry, by combining appearance with nutrition and internal wellness.

Your skin and appearance are a touchstone of your whole body health. That begins with nutrition.

For example, in America, if you eat dairy, there’s a good chance you’ll get acne. Instead of trying to cover up the symptoms, why not eliminate the problem ?

In some cases (such as age and external factors like sunshine), your skin will take a weathering. For those cases, we are offering solutions to help mitigate environmental and time factors.

There’s no free pass in life, and we’re trying to give you solutions to approach appearance and whole body health. If you put in the work, you will be amazed.

Most things that are processed, have less effectiveness. That’s why we’re developing methods to deliver botanical solutions with minimal processing. We want to bring the healthiest product to your skin, and provide you with the science of why it works.

While corporate greed and misinformation are rampant, we’ll do our best to back up our products with a commitment to your health first. We’ll show you the science behind our formulations, so you know some thought has been put into products that you will bring into your life. 

Environmental

Protect against external factors. While you can’t control everything, you can do small things to bolster your health and appearance.

Premature wrinkles. The biggest factors to prematurely age your skin are exposure to sunshine, drinking, and smoking. Dehydration and depletion of Vitamin A causes wrinkles and irritation to the eyes.

Air filter. If you live in a city, consider a quality air filtration system.

Water filter. Distill and filter your water at home. 

Enhance factors which you can control, such as sleep and a healthy whole food plant based diet.

Education. Read up on how your body works. Knowledge is empowerment.

Science. Lots of studies have been done on most things that make your body fail. We’ll try to provide scientific study results (unbiased) that back up our skin treatment products, as well as nutrition to make your whole self, healthy.

Eco Extraction of Essential Oils

Whole Body Wellness Concept: It’s not just what you put on your skin, but how you treat your entire body, to achieve the most healthy, best looking, best feeling self. Using all natural, organic products is the foundation, but what you eat has a huge impact on your skin tone, appearance, and health.

Pure Extracts:

Using the Infinity Supercritical CO2 extractor: Carbon dioxide is a benign solvent, which has been used for decades for decaffeinating coffee, and is safe for extraction of plants to make a pure oil.

Infinity Supercritical Sonic Extractor: Infinity pioneered the use of water extraction for the botanicals industry, using its patented modular block concept, which uses hydrodynamic cavitation to extract oil from plant cells. Pure water is the solvent, which is good for the environment, and produces a full spectrum essential oil.

Extractions include tamanu, oregano, Tahitian vanilla, lavender, and other herbs, spices, and fragrant plants.

Home Based Tea Solutions: Part of the whole body concept is to develop your own regieme to deliver healthy solutions to your body. This starts with diet. One of the significant methods to incorporate healthy solutions, is making your own tea. The body (and brain) needs hydration to perform at its best optimal condition. Replace sugar based juice and soda with water, or tea. Studies have shown that cold tea can deliver equal or better nutrients and antioxidants compared to hot tea. Infused water is a great way to get nutrients and antioxidants. But make it yourself. Get a steam distilled water maker, and use standard carbon water filters, instead of relying on store-bought water. Use that as your foundation.

Montreux Cosmetics Home Infused Tea Machine

NIH and Proven Herbs, Nutraceuticals, and Antioxidants: There are a great number of health foods and nutrients that make your skin look great.

Fasting: Used throughout the ages to allow your body to process its functions better. One of the more popular methods is the fast five method, which means you skip breakfast, then eat a lunch and dinner within 5 hours. This gives your liver time to process for more than 12 hours. Drink water and hydrate. Your body (and brain) needs water for normal function.

Supplements: Very few external supplements are required by the body (unless otherwise suggested by your doctor). Try to get your nutrients from food. All natural.

Reference: The best medicine is your own education. Read on your own. Keep a daily log of your food, health, and well being.
