The Solgar Vision: Leading the way to a healthier world.
At Solgar we are driven by the science of nutrition and we adhere to the highest global standards for the manufacture of all our products. Meticulous research, uncompromising quality, state of the art manufacturing and comprehensive education are as critical to Solgar as the high quality botanicals, vitamins and minerals in our formulas. For more than 50 years Solgar has been setting the Gold Standard for nutritional supplements.
Solgar is passionate about quality.
Quality is an integral component of our comprehensive system of checks and balances, which is unsurpassed in the industry.
More than 400 supplements proudly wear the Solgar GOLD LABEL® Solgar receives tons of the finest raw materials from the best suppliers. Once the raw materials are received, Solgar immediately draws random samples. These samples are rushed to Quality control while the bulk is placed in ‘Quarantine’ pending testing on the samples.
A full spectrum of microbiological and chemical testing is conducted on every batch of raw material to determine the purity, potency and identity of each ingredient. Our skilled scientists utilize state-of-the-art High Performance Liquid Chromatography and Gas Chromatography testing. The material is released into the warehouse for manufacturing only if the samples meet our established specifications.
This commitment to quality requires enormous investment in both time and money, but we feel it’s the only way to guarantee consumer satisfaction. Everything Solgar does – from choosing the finest natural raw materials, to state-of-of-the-art manufacturing, to the package that appears on the shelf – must meet our Gold Standard of Excellence. This investment reflects Solgar’s commitment to maintaining our position as a world leader in nutritional science.
Each Solgar label has a complete listing of nutritional information and every product is clearly labelled with a use-by date for peak potency. That means each product will satisfy 100% of its label claim for active ingredients through the date printed on the bottle.
The Science of Solgar Supplements
At Solgar we use sophisticated and thorough methods of testing to ensure the quality of our products.
Solgar boasts an industry leading team of experts, including Ph.D.’s, nutritionists, scientists and laboratory technicians. Each is a specialist in a variety of Research and Development (R&D) functions. These professionals, along with our research partners, validate new analytical methods, create test batches, and conduct product stability and safety testing. These experts perform their craft in state-of-the-art research facilities.
Our on-site quality control team work to ensure that every product meets the Solgar gold standard. Before the each product is launched it must undergo our exhaustive formulation process and all of our raw materials must go through rigorous testing to ensure that the best methods for drying, preparing and mixing ingredients are identified and used each and every time the product is manufactured - making the last tablet or capsule in a Solgar bottle as beneficial as the first. Every batch is tested before it is released for purity, potency and identification. When appropriate Solgar even employs approved independent 3rd parties to carry out further extensive testing.
All of our products are specifically designed to digest in appropriate rates to provide the desired benefit to the customer – this varies for every product. The most effective method of delivery for each is determined and tested by Solgar’s Product Development Team. A recent £15 million investment in our manufacturing facilities has meant that Solgar is able to deliver its gold standard to customers worldwide.
