Hi, I am Don (the President and Formulator)!
Do you look at the ingredient list shown on the labeling of your oral and topical products? You should, however, the chemical names can be confusing and the information about them, if you check online, can often be misleading or inaccurate depending upon the source. That we why use the most current science to keep up and provide only the BEST products you can get.
As scientific information increases, we learn that some chemicals, originally thought benign, are not beneficial to human health. As a long-time chemist (more than 50 years), my goal has always been the healthy use of ingredients while knowing that information changes over time.
Toxicity & Chemical Sensitivity (Allergies):
We use only non-toxic and on the FDA-approved (GRAS)* list of ingredients in our products. In addition, we scrutinize the FDA list using our own policies and current scientific information to make our formulation decisions.
*GRAS stands for Generally Recognized As Safe and is a lawful list of chemicals that are safe when used for food or topical products.
We also formulate to make our products as natural as possible and to minimize or eliminate issues for chemically-sensitive individuals.
For example, we never use these ingredients in our oral products:
Our oral products are vegan and vegetarian**.
**unless clearly marked in the product list -- (i.e. orally, our Joint Therapy uses chondroitin sulfate, which is obtained from bovine cartilage and is clearly not vegan or vegetarian).
