Quality Control

 

 

To us social, environmental and economic impact are not just sound bites and ideas. They are the way by which we measure our performance. At Symphony Natural Health we employ a Triple Bottom Line company culture and framework for our business - evaluating our results based on our social, environmental and economic impact, both internally and externally.⁠⠀

Economic Impact: We believe in forming deep relationships that are life changing, not just with our customers, but also with our business partners around the world.

Having worked in developing countries for 22 years we realized early on that by paying 20-30% more through Fair Trade type programs for commodities like coffee, herbs or salt, the income of the local communities was significantly improved.

However, we learnt that we could make an even greater impact by establishing strong joint-venture partnerships with the local people to create value-added goods, small industry, and year-round employment, we could inject up to 10 times the amount of money into those communities and really change lives.

Social Impact: Our partnership in Pakistan, where we source Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, has enabled us to not just have a financial impact on the local community, but also a significant social impact. We achieve this through supporting education through local schools as well as ensuring there is no child or slave labor used in our mines.

We believe we have a social responsibility, not just to the health of our customers, but to the health and well-being of our team and partners around the world.

We believe that every single person, whether you are working in a mine in the foothills of the Himalayas, in our warehouse in Utah or an office in San Francisco, should be able to earn a living wage and most importantly have a safe work environment.

Environmental Impact: To ensure a safe working environment, and to lessen the potential environmental impact on our planet, we do not use explosives in any of our mining processes. ⁠
But, our commitment to having the smallest environmental impact possible extends far beyond our no explosives policy. To minimize the impact we have on local flora, fauna, streams and landscapes, we use only hand-mining techniques to extract our salts and, rather than carve wide roads into the valley and mountainside to cater for large trucks, we make the choice to use man-power and donkeys to transport our crystal stones from the mine to the sorting and packing facilities.⁠

To top things off, our care for the environment is continued through our use of recyclable packaging and our company-wide Green philosophy.⁠

The depth of our relationship to the local community we partner with and our support through their schools is symbolized by our Original Himalayan Crystal Salt logo, which is the insignia of the Royal Education Foundation in the Hunza area where our mine is located The Royal Education Foundation graciously extends their blessing for us to use their insignia as a reflection of our connection to the Hunza people and the authentic origin of our unique salts.⁠

Perfessence

From results you experience, to mode of action, clinical research, quality, purity and even packaging, we wanted to create products that ticked every box that both you and we think are important. To convey this concept easily, we came up with a word and logo to express a product that “ticks all the boxes” and does everything right: Perfessence combines “Perfect Essence” and is reflective of all of the below:

Results: We develop market leading products, with the highest success rates. We believe there is no point introducing a new product to the market, unless it is an improvement on all the current products for that specific health issue.

Mode of Action: By establishing the optimal mode of action we address the cause, not just the symptoms.

Science: The scientific research on our products includes pharmacology, toxicology and double-blind placebo controlled human clinical trials, published in International medical journals.

Cultural: Our products are all vegan and Kosher certified so that people of all beliefs can use our products

Purity: Our strict attention to all aspects of product purity, including Organic Certification (USDA, European Union and Japanese), Non-GMO, California's Heavy Metals Proposition 65 compliance, and products free of chemical extractives, alcohol, additives, colorings, preservatives, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, gluten, dairy, soy, and corn - all in vegan capsules, means that you are assured of having a 100% pure product.

Quality: We control every stage of production, from seed to shelf, through scientifically researched species, phenotype, variety, soil, geographic location and climatic conditions. Customized growing, harvesting and proprietary manufacturing processes for each individual herb based on its specific biology and chemistry, are carried out in certified facilities. These vertically integrated operations create unparalleled levels of the full spectrum of active ingredients found in each herb and ensure the maximum bioavailability in every product. In addition, long term quality is supported through stability verification and optimal product packaging using oxygen and moisture barrier blister packs and UV shielding boxes.

Education: Symphony Natural Health's Medical Board consists of some of the leading experts, authors and educators in natural medicine and integrative health. In addition we support organizations that empower, educate and further our industry, such as the Naturopathic Education and Research Consortium, Institute of Women's Health and Integrative Medicine, several of the US Colleges of Naturopathic Medicine and Awakes, a non-profit dedicated to educating and empowering people in holistic and integrative health.

Environment: We use vegetable inks and recycled cardboard, paper and packaging. We employ environmentally sustainable agricultural practices in all our farming around the world.

Social Responsibility: All operations in third world countries are either joint ventures with local people or 100% locally employed. We establish value added industries, instead of simply trading commodities, creating year-round employment and generating up to ten times the revenue that standard operations would for the local communities.In addition, we have supported social outreach programs such as Nourish America and Medicine Horse that are aligned with our Core Values.

Seed to Shelf

Symphony Natural Health is unique in that we are a vertically-integrated company, meaning we control the whole process from seed to shelf for every one of our nutraceuticals.

All of our products are 100% natural & organic meaning that the vegetarian capsule and the 100% organic herbal powder inside the capsule are the ONLY components of our products. No preservatives, chemical extractives, alcohol, additives, excipients or flowing agents are used in any of the processes leaving the product 100% pure.

The fields in which we grown all of our products are USDA, EU and JA Organically Certified or in transition to be certified. This quality control continues through our manufacturing and packaging process with each facility GMP, Kosher and Organically certified.

Raw Materials

Creating the highest quality products in the world starts in the field. We scour the world to find the ideal locations to grow each individual herb. We pay strict attention to all of the following factors:

  • specific species, sub species and phenotype of each herb we use
  • seed selection quality
  • plantation location and elevation
  • soil and agro-management
  • rainfall and lunar cycles
  • harvest times in relation to growth and developmental stage of the plant and the diurnal cycle
  • harvest methods that minimize damage to the herb
  • variable drying technologies that depend on the herb and its primary purpose
  • temperature-controlled shipping

All combined with different proprietary manufacturing processes for each individual herb, based on the biology and chemistry of that herb, to maximize the full spectrum of active ingredients and bio-availability.

Below is an analytical comparison of Maca-GO® (Femmenessence) to two of the highest quality maca extracts by TLC spectro-analysis. You will see that Femmenessence contains the entire spectrum of active ingredients that exist in maca as well as higher levels of the specific ingredients chosen by the two companies that manufacture a maca extract.
