The Solgar Gold Standard™ Solgar has been manufacturing fine quality nutritional supplements for over 60 years in an industry that is constantly evolving. Throughout these changes, we have never lost sight of our original mission – to provide consumers with the highest quality nutritional products and information to help promote optimal health. Our attention to detail from manufacturing through distribution has enabled us to set, maintain, and continually raise the Gold Standard™ for quality nutritional supplements, education, and service. Researched, Science-Based Products. Solgar is known globally for producing innovative, science-based, efficacious products. All Solgar products have been thoroughly researched by our R & D department. We have a team of experts dedicated exclusively to research. State-of-the-Art Manufacturing. Solgar’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility meets the highest standard for machinery, procedures, and quality control. This enables us to provide our customers with the best quality products possible. With our own manufacturing, laboratory, and distribution facilities, Solgar ensures quality throughout the entire process. Quality Control. Solgar has high standards for quality. We have a rigorous quality control system in place to test products at multiple stages – from raw material to finished product. All materials coming into our facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality; any that don’t meet our standards are rejected and sent back to our suppliers. Solgar has its own on-site Quality Laboratory that ensures that each product leaving our door meets our Gold Standard™ for excellence. We don’t just do one test on our products. We do many. USP Water Purification System. Solgar invested over $1 million in a state-of-the-art USP reverse osmosis water purification system – widely considered the finest type of filtration available. This isn’t required by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), but the Solgar Gold Standard™ requires that we have the best system possible. HEPA Air Filtration System. Air that circulates through the Solgar facility passes through a bank of HEPA filters that remove 99.9% of airborne particulates. Both air and water samples are routinely tested in Solgar’s in-house laboratory. Cleanliness. Solgar uses food-grade cleaners to sanitize our equipment between batches. We disassemble and clean all of our machinery after each formula change. In some cases, the equipment is broken down into hundreds of parts and may take up to eight hours to clean and reassemble. Walls, floors, and other surfaces are also cleaned before a manufacturing suite is used for another formula. Gluten Free. Most Solgar products are gluten free. Kosher Certified. Solgar selected KOF-K Kosher Supervision, an international organization that follows the strictest laws of the kosher observance, to certify our products. Solgar chose the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a U.K.-based organization that adheres to the strictest laws of Halal, to certify some of our products. Aqueous Coated Tablets. Solgar was one of the first in the natural products industry to integrate a natural, water-based coating for all of our coated-tablet products as an alternative to using the more common solvent-based coating agent shellac (also known as pharmaceutical glaze). This natural coating improves disintegration and dissolution, providing better absorption of the nutrients. Recyclable Amber Glass Bottles. Our recyclable glass bottles are non-leaching, non-porous, and odorless. Although these “old style” medicine bottles cost more, Solgar uses them because they protect against heat, light, and moisture. Exclusive Distribution. Our specialty market demands innovative products that are unique and available in brands exclusive to our class of trade. Solgar is committed to distributing our products through fine health food retailers across the globe where customers can find the best products along with the best nutritional advice about them. Solgar’s finished products are distributed from our own global distribution centers. This is another way we ensure the integrity of our products. Globally Recognized. Solgar is distributed throughout the world in over 60 different countries, with affiliate offices in the U.K., Spain, South Africa, and New Zealand.
