Our production facility is registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is routinely inspected. We follow FDA CFR 111 Current Good Manufacturing Practices in manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding operations for dietary supplements. Additionally, we continually work with label consultants to ensure FDA label compliance.
Our production facility does extensive testing of all ingredients, above and beyond regulatory requirements. Every incoming ingredient is tested for identity, micro-contamination, and heavy metals. The same tests are done on the finished blend, and further tests are done on the finished product. We are using the latest HP-TLC (High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography) technology to ensure that only the highest quality ingredients are used. For an ingredient to be used in one of our products, the supplier must be qualified first through an extensive questionnaire which is then followed up by third-party Certificate of Analysis testing and then, for our legendary TruGanic™ products, our unique third-party TruGanic™ testing: GMO-free (zero detected), irradiation-free (zero detected), and pesticide-free (zero detected—we test for 283+ pesticides). To our knowledge, we are the only company that does this extensive level of testing for assurance of product purity. Additionally, our facility only uses 100% non-toxic, organic compliant, and biodegradable cleaning chemicals (far beyond what is required by USDA Organic). Our production area is a radio frequency-free zone (no microwaves, Wi-Fi, or cell phones permitted) and has electromagnetic radiation (EMF) mitigating technologies (also not required by the Organic industry standard or any other standard). We have proudly pioneered, and continue to uphold and further develop, the highest standards for product purity in the industry.
Our production facility is free of GMOs, pesticides, animal- sourced ingredients, irradiation, fillers, flow agents, and excipients. All cleaning chemicals are the most eco friendly available. The facility is part of a non chemical organic compliant active pest management program.
Furthermore, all our labels and marketing materials are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and all packaging materials are fully reusable and/or recyclable.
