#8 Carbon-14: Verifying Naturally Sourced Ingredients By: Florencia Goren

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

About the Webinar

Carbon-14 testing has been used by several industries for decades (e.g. flavors and fragrance, food and beverage, cosmetics, bioplastics, biofuels, waste-to-energy, archaeology, and geology sectors). Carbon-14 is standardized through several analytical methods such as ASTM D6866, ISO 16620, and EN 16640. This test method is used to differentiate between naturally sourced and petrochemical-derived ingredients. Stakeholders throughout the supply chain can use carbon-14 testing to authenticate natural ingredients and to back up natural source claims on product labels. This presentation will review how Carbon-14 works, its applications, standards, and case studies to essential oils.

Key Takeaways:

  • How Carbon-14 works

  • The application and current standards of Carbon-14

  • The ways in which Carbon-14 is used in the Essential Oil Field
