Innovative Formulations Based on Science
Solgar has three golden rules of formulation for every product bearing our name: it has to be efficacious, safe, and backed by science. If a product doesn’t meet all of these rules, we don’t produce it.
Solgar offers a comprehensive variety of supplements that can be tailored to meet individual requirements for nutrition and lifestyle. Our product line includes Halal, Kosher, and vegetarian (strictly non-animal sourced material) supplements in varied doses and forms. Most Solgar products are also free of gluten, dairy, and wheat. In accordance with our Gold Standard™, we do not use unnecessary sugars, salts, or fillers in our products.
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 nutrients.
Quality Raw Material Sourcing
Once we have developed a formula, the next step is choosing our raw materials. Many factors can affect the quality of natural ingredients including weather, growing season, urban sprawl, environmental pollutants, soil quality, and a host of other issues. Our experts take all of this into consideration when choosing our raw material suppliers.
We don’t accept just any ingredients. We select our suppliers from around the world based on their proven track records for quality. Even so, we require certificates of analysis from all of our suppliers to ensure the materials are what they say they are. But we don’t stop there. We also test the materials ourselves. Any materials that don’t meet our quality standards are rejected and sent back to our suppliers.
Solgar has its own on-site Quality Laboratory. Managed by highly trained experts, our laboratory is the ultimate authority for allowing products to wear the Solgar label. We don’t do just one test. We do many.
Solgar’s rigorous quality control system is in place to test products at every stage, from raw material to finished product. All materials coming into our facility are subject to stringent tests to ensure they are the highest quality. We also do extensive testing at multiple stages — from raw material to finished product. Our Quality Laboratory ensures that each product leaving our door meets our Gold Standard™ for quality.
