You may have seen the news this morning that a few major retailers have been told by the NY state attorney to stop selling store branded supplements after testing revealed that some of the products contained no herbs and other ingredients not claimed on the labels.
We wanted to be sure to reach out to you, our loyal customers, to let you know that our products are safe.
Our Products are Pure
SeabuckWonders products are third party tested. Our supplements contain only 100% sea buckthorn oils that are Non-GMO project verified and USDA Organic certified. Our capsules are 100% organic beef gelatin and verified Kosher. Even the berries that our oils are made from are grown in a pristine area and are a beneficial crop for the farmers who grow it.
Be Smart: How to Protect Yourself
Unfortunately, because the herbal supplement industry is regulated differently than other industries, you can’t always be sure what you are getting when you buy. Here are some simple ways that you can be sure that you are getting the real deal when you buy herbal supplements.
Third Party Testing
If it’s not on the label, check out the company’s website before you buy. Responsible supplement companies do testing to make sure the ingredients in their products are pure before they are sold to consumers.
Certifications from large organizations such as the USDA Organic program and the Non-GMO Verification Project shows that a company has submitted all of their manufacturing information, including ingredient documents, to an outside party for scrutiny. That means the company has nothing to hide.
If the product is very inexpensive you should take this as a warning sign. Quality manufacturing and testing simply cannot be done on a tiny budget. Great quality ingredients work better and they usually cost more too. Companies who are forced to charge more for their products often do so for good reason. You get what you pay for.
How easy is it to access the brand's website? Do they take pride in the way that their products are manufactured or do they gloss over the subject? How long have they been in business? It’s so important to buy from companies you can trust.
Rest assured, every time you purchase a SeabuckWonders product you are getting what is on the label! We genuinely care about our customers. We are proud of the quality of our products and stand behind every product we make.
