Why You Can Trust Our Products
When it comes to encapsulated herbal products, vitamins, and minerals, it’s Solaray’s belief that you should know exactly what you’re putting into your body, and where it comes from. That’s why we pride ourselves on in-house testing, so we can be sure our products are safe, potent, and pure. By testing our products in-house, we can assure that our labels are trustworthy and accurate. That way, you know exactly what you’re getting.
Start to Finish Testing
At Solaray, we test all the way through our production process -- from our ingredient intake to our finished product. This way, we can assure the purity of our products, from earth to bottle.
When we receive shipments of our ingredients, we immediately label and quarantine these ingredients. This is to ensure that nothing is contaminated before we do our testing.
Next, we start testing the raw ingredients for physical attributes like moisture content, particle size, and tap density. These are all important considerations for the blending of our ingredients. Since we don’t accept any ingredients that have been irradiated, we test to ensure that our products are free of unwanted microorganisms like E. coli, salmonella, yeast/mold, and more.
Our testing is so stringent that we reject 15% of the raw materials we receive. We’re so strict about the contents of our products so that you can trust what goes into your body.
Our tablets, capsules, and soft-gels are all tested to dissolve in accordance with USP and in-house standards. This is important to guarantee that our products are disintegrating at the right point in the digestive system, so your body’s getting the herbs, vitamins, and minerals at the optimal time.
Using technology like spectrophotometry, chromatography, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), we separate the chemicals in our ingredients to make sure that there are certain active markers present at the right level. This helps us ensure the uniform potency of our products.
We also test all of our products for contaminants, guaranteeing that they’re free of unwanted chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals. Our testing instruments -- which include UPLC-MS/MS, GC-MS/MS, and ICP-MS -- are extremely sensitive, creating a stringent screening process.
Finished Product Testing
Even though we’ve tested all of the ingredients, we still test all of our finished products. This lets us ensure that the manufacturing process went as predicted, to create products that are reliable and safe.
If this process sounds obsessive, that’s because it is. We know how important your body is to you, so we do everything we can to provide you pure, potent, and tested products.
