1,300 phytonutrient fingerprinted botanicals in our functional target library lead us to the best ingredients and ingredient combinations.
WE UNDERSTAND PLANTS…ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THEIR GENETIC MAKE-UP.
And just like your DNA, botanicals can be “fingerprinted” to discover their nutrient composition. We spend hours fingerprinting to confirm we have the precise plant species we need with phytonutrients that’ll deliver the human health benefits we’re seeking.
What does this look like? It looks like 20,000 tests on 1,000 botanicals to find the best blend for just one product – Nutrilite™ Double X™. And this is just one example!
It’s how we give you products that work, and the peace of mind you deserve.
MILLIONS of seeds planted each year, and not just any seed will do!
WHILE SMALL IN SIZE, PLANT SEEDS CAN GREATLY IMPACT THE INGREDIENTS THAT GO INTO OUR PRODUCTS.
We start by testing, and use third party inspectors who do the same. We test for things like the seed’s organic nature, purity and germination rate. We ensure high nutrient content and no contamination.
Once the seeds pass our tests, we give them a lot number to help us trace them throughout their life from seed to plant to ingredient…to you!
Our nearly 6,000 acres of Nutrilite™ owned organic farmland across three countries is only the start.
IF WE CAN’T GROW IT OURSELVES, WE GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO FIND THE BEST PARTNER FARMS, IN CLIMATES THAT ARE IDEAL FOR GROWING EACH AND EVERY INGREDIENT.
Our NutriCert™ certification program gives us traceability of every botanical ingredient and verifies sustainable farming methods to help farmers around the world improve their farms, and their communities.
We conduct 30-50 audits a year to ensure partner farms measure up to our standards.
Every botanical has a birth certificate. And each is grown 99% weed free, with no chemical pesticides.
WE ARE OUTRAGEOUSLY CAUTIOUS WHEN IT COMES TO GROWING INGREDIENTS ON OUR FARMS, NOT WASTING A SINGLE MOMENT OR A SINGLE NUTRIENT.
We grow our crops in the best soil with the purest water, and following sustainable farming principles so that our plants are healthy and strong. That means no synthetic chemical pesticides or fertilizers. Instead we use good bugs, falcons and natural weed control to protect our plants.
We move plants within as little as 20 minutes from field to on-site dryers to ensure the highest nutrient levels.
DAY OR NIGHT, WHEN OUR PLANTS ARE AT THEIR HIGHEST NUTRITIONAL VALUE, WE ARE THERE, READY TO HARVEST.
Nutrilite™ agricultural researchers test to find the best harvest times. Each minute counts, and records are kept throughout. That’s why we work fast to help prevent the growth of microbes, giving us pure, safe and effective ingredients.
SKIN, SEEDS, ROOTS, LEAVES…we concentrate or dry the parts of the plant that give us the highest level of nutrients.
WE START DRYING PLANTS RIGHT ON THE FARM WITH EQUIPMENT THAT IS TESTED AND CONFIRMED TO BE FREE FROM CONTAMINATION.
That quick work means harmful microbes don’t have a chance. And any leftover plant material goes back into the earth – naturally feeding the soil.
We conduct 500,000 quality checks on our ingredients each year.
WE’RE NOT WILLING TO RELY ON OTHERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE SAFETY OF OUR CUSTOMERS.
That’s why we go above and beyond requirements. That means analyzing a product 200 times throughout manufacturing and keeping a detailed ingredient record.
We not only confirm raw material identity, we confirm it carries our required level of nutrient potency, too.
The quality levels of our products are traced every step of the way. We know the who, what, when, where, and why of every product that comes in and goes out.
Shake, squeeze, twist, x-ray. We test our packages more than 30,000 times each year.
WE SHAKE OUR PRODUCTS. WE SQUEEZE THEM.
We subject them to extreme conditions. That’s how we know our packaging can handle anything it faces between our door and yours.
Our traceability process begins and ends with you.
FROM THE SEED IN THE GROUND TO THE SUPPLEMENT IN YOUR HAND, WE’RE THINKING OF YOU.
Knowing where your ingredients come from and seeing each step in our process gives you confidence to make smart choices for you and your family.
We’re more than a supplement company. We believe you have the right to know, see and understand the products you take.
That’s why we’ve peeled back our label to help you experience Nutrilite™ traceability.
