Herbalist and Alchemist’s mission is to develop, manufacture and distribute herbal supplements that are of the highest quality, manufactured from plant material that originates in harmony with the environment: organically grown, ethically wild-crafted or sustainably harvested.
Over 75% of the herbs used are Certified Organic, and they also use Certified Organic Alcohol & Certified Organic Olive Oil.
Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As the first Herbal Supplements Company to become a Certified B Corp™, they use business as a force for good: making products that are beneficial for people and for the earth.
Products are made using the BIO-SPECIFICTM formulation process, based on knowledge of the chemistry, character and energetics of each plant gained from traditional wisdom, balanced with leading modern research and decades of clinical experience.
Herbs are obtained directly from organic growers and ethical wildcrafters. Experienced herbalists examine every shipment of herbs to evaluate quality and validate species. Skilled lab techs sort all batches of herbs by hand, removing woody stems or yellowed leaves. Some herbs lose activity upon drying, so they are always extracted fresh. Conversely, the dried forms of many bitter, pungent or acrid herbs produce a more energetically-vibrant extract. Certain herbs need to be simmered in water before alcohol is added to produce a vital extract. These formulation decisions are an integral part of assuring a superior extract.
Quality Control is involved in every step of the process. Third party testing is done on all of our extracts to screen for heavy metals, aflatoxins, and microbiological pathogens.
We are fully compliant with the US Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and are regularly inspected by FDA. Our procedures are documented and followed to the letter. Detailed records and samples are kept.
