Lignins

Lignins are derived from and abundant and renewable resource: trees, plants, and agricultural crops.  Lignins are non-toxic and extremely versatile in performance, qualities that have made them increasingly important in many applications.  Lignin uses have expanded into literally  hundreds of facets of our daily life.

Because lignins are very complex natural polymers with many random couplings. Physical, chemical properties differ depending on the extraction technology. Some are hydrophilic (will dissolve in water); others ate hydrophobic ( will not dissolve in water). Ligins are critical ingredient in the composition of certain  micronutrients, those nutrients other than primary (N, P and K) and secondary (Ca, S and Mg) nutrients are essential for normal growth and development of plants.  They are frequently referred to as minor or trace nutrients, but their use is in amounts  more than trace and their importance is certainly not minor.

Micronutrients, by definition, include the following elements: boron, chlorine, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, sodium and zinc. Granular micronutrients function as conditioning agents.  When conditioned with lignins, they have increased strength, reduced dustiness and are less prone to caking or pile set.  As a result of their improved physical properties, micronutrients granules conditioned with lignin also generate less dust upon handling.

Lignins have unique chemical properties and may play prominent role in reducing cancer. The lignin content of flaxseed is up to 800 times greater than that of other plant foods such as legumes, veggies and cereal grains.  In liquid formulations, lignins act as complex agents keeping micronutrients in an available form  under pH conditions which would normally cause insolubilization.

Lignins are classified by the EPA/FDA as non-toxic and are easy to handle and use.  Their environmental friendliness makes them a "natural" choice in both granular and liquid products.  Research to develop improved lignins for use in micronutrients is on-going and includes products with improved borate and phosphate tolerances.

Cellulose

Cellulose (wood pulp) is prepared from wood by process of dissolving and chemical softning.  Depending on the solvent solution used, the following pulping processes are distinguished: sulfite process; soda process; sulfate process.  The pulp is produced from pin, fir, spruce and beechwood wood, and sunflower stalks.  The lignin which causes the cellulose fibers to adhere together is dissolved by the treatment and is, in part, chemically decomposed, leaving a soft pulp which consists of cellulose.  While most of the cellulose produced is consumed by the textile industry and the paper industry, the skincare industry continues to recognize the therapeutic properties of both cellulose and lignin.
