Control and Traceability: What 360 Quality Really Means

Achieving true quality in botanical extracts is not easy.  A single plant is a complex mixture.  Its components depend on a number of variables, including where it was grown, when it was harvested, and how it is processed into a standardized extract.   Ensuring quality and consistency for each and every batch of a botanical extract is a painstaking process that requires attention to contr
ol and traceability at each step, from the seed to the drum. 

We call the result of this process 360 Quality.

One of the ways in which we ensure
360 Quality is through vertical integration. Unlike many sellers of ingredients, Verdure Sciences exercises a high level of manufacturing and agricultural control. We enter into long-ter
m contracts with farmers and harvesters to guarantee botanical raw material supply and source, and we use USDA Organic Certified material whenever possible.

Starting with the raw material, all processes adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).   For example, incoming lots of botanical raw material are verified using HPTLC (fig.1) and identification by trained botanists (fig.2). Each step of the way, including the high grade of stainless steel (SS316) our extraction vessels are made of, and the purity of the water used for extraction, has a singular purpose: Control and Traceability with the objective of 360 Quality.
