Our products are of international standard due to the extensive quality control measures, undertaken by us. Recently we have introduced substantial expansion in our existing undertaking by installing modern and sophisticated machinery and well-equipped testing laboratory.

At Rakesh Sandal Industry we firmly believe that Quality control is of utmost importance and it is imperative that the most meticulous tests are carried out for every products in our range.

GLC TESTING: One of the most sophisticated methods of testing, Gas Liquid Chromatography ensures that the most irregular type of adulterants can be found. Every batch of essential oil received must pass this analysis before reaching you.

VISUAL AND SMELL TEST: Sensory test are the initial tests conducted. The translucency, colour, viscosity, solubility and smell of the oil have been tested to maintain the quality of and optimum-grade essential oil.

SPECIFIC GRAVITY TESTS: Specific gravity is the density of a substance divided by the density of water. Since water has a density of 1 grm/cm3, and since all of the units cancel, specific gravity is the same number as density but without any units.

REFRACTIVE INDEX TEST: The ratio of the velocity of light in a vacuum to its velocity in a transparent specimen. The index of refraction is related to the physical structure of the medium through which light is passing. For this reason, the index of refraction is a characteristic of substances that can be employed in identifying unknowns. The higher the refractive index, the greater the amount of dispersion, which increase the brilliance of a material.

ACID VALUE TESTS: The amount of free acid present in fat as measured by the milligrams of potassium hydroxide needed to neutralize it.

HYDROXYL VALUE TESTS: A measure of hydroxyl (univalent OH) group in and organic material.

IODINE VALUE TESTS: Also called Iodine Number, a measure of the degree of unsaturation of an oil. The amount of iodine, in grams, that is taken up by 100 grams of the oil. A low iodine value implies a high degree of saturation.

SAPONIFICATION VALUE TESTS: The saponification value is the amount of alkali necessary to saponify a definite quantity of the sample. It is expressed as the number of milligrams of potassium hydroxide (KOH) required to saponify 1 gram of the sample.


Our quality control research an development are engaged in identifying areas of best quality raw materials and collecting raw materials under our own supervision and to find out best condition of distillation to manufacture quality oils.
We assure that with our present resources, we are in a position to meet any demand and as such desire to establish trade relations with esteemed rganisations.

We believe that good product only fills half a customer's order. The other half requires experience, reputation, a good track record and a genuine commitment to the business. That is why we believe you should start with R.S.I. We will make a world of difference in your products.
