All about Palolea's Olive Leaf Extract history
Palolea was established to benefit from what the “tree of life,” our beloved olive tree, has to offer. Our mission is to produce the highest quality of Olive Leaf Extract (Olieuropein) available on the market, exclusively from thousands of years old olive trees plantations of Palestine.
For thousands of years, Palestinians have depended on olive trees as a main source of income. Generation after generation, the love for this tree, and the place it holds in people’s hearts has grown. Today, over 80 percent of Palestinian agricultural land is covered with olive trees, while olive oil is by far the most significant Palestinian export.
Palolea is proud to be the first of its kind in the Middle East. While olive orchards cover vast areas of the entire region, no other company in that area has attempted to produce olive leaf extract ever before.
Palolea currently employs over 70 Palestinian workers to gather olive leaves and harnesses scientific ingenuity to produce the finest olive leaf extract, providing its customers with pure natural goodness.
The company’s participatory approach was designed to ensure that local farmers themselves benefit, by creating job opportunities and recycling what is normally discarded.
Olive trees and their products are national treasures in Palestine. In the same way, Palolea treasures its partnerships with local farmers.
The company is located in the West Bank city of Jericho, just a few miles from the Dead Sea. It is in fact the first company to be established in the Jericho Agro-Industrial Park, which is expected to form one of the main pillars of the Palestinian economy, and is also dubbed the “corridor for peace”.
Palolea natural Oleuropein extraction process
We are proud to be the first company in the region that produces its own active ingredients. Ingredients that adhere to the strict requirements for use in pharmaceuticals. For us, Olive leaf extract set the pace for all other ingredients we are currently developing.
To produce OLE on an industrial scale, we first had to determine the best all natural extraction process, and this had to guarantee three main things:
- The largest yield of extract from the olive leaves (raw materiel).
- That the extract contain the highest percentage of active ingredients (Polyphenols).
- That the active ingredients remain at those high percentages; a stable product.
Palolea then designed its industrial machinery, based on the ideal small-scale extraction process that our scientists concluded with.
It is this drive to develop potent active ingredients that sets our laboratories, their functionality, and role apart from others. Our dedicated lab specialists are the best in their field, our equipment is state of the art, we are committed to all natural, and our raw materiel is locally sources, hence a phenomenal product!
Palolea’s quality control unit follows GMP standards, and guarantees that every batch we produce passes strict microbiological testing, along with testing the physical and chemical properties of our tablets.
