We manufacture a wide range of products
including supplements, liquid formulas, capsule and skin care products. All of
our products are manufactured in the United States using Good
Manufacturing Practices set forth by the US Federal Drug Administration. In
addition, both scheduled and surprise inspections by the Quality Assurance
staff during different aspects of the manufacturing process help to ensure
specific quality, strength and purity for both the raw materials and the finished
All quality control personnel are obliged to
adhere to explicit written protocols that are strictly enforced throughout the
entire manufacturing process. All raw materials used in Hoodia Gordonii Plus
are tested for purity prior to use. The oversight throughout our quality
control process is second-to-none—we count on our quality control engineers to
reject a batch of product at any stage in the manufacturing process if it
doesn’t meet our strict requirements for quality.
We also keep thorough records throughout the
manufacturing process that undergo analysis by our quality control specialists.
The US Department of Agriculture reviews manufacturing equipment cleaning and
maintenance—to make sure that all of our products are completely free of
contamination. Our production records for each unit are kept on file for two
years past the expiration date of the unit—including records related to the
unit’s raw materials. Every product’s offer is accompanied by a product
analysis that includes information such as lot numbers for ingredients used, as
well as a breakdown of herbal supplement components and production methods.
Raw Materials Hoodia Gordonii
Plus trusts only the most reputable wholesale suppliers to provide the ingredients
and materials that form our supplements. Suppliers must furnish a Certificate
of Analysis for each material and all raw materials undergo further analysis by
our in-house quality assurance team—which means every ingredient used is both
authentic and pure.
Packaging Materials Proper packaging is
a critical part of ensuring safety, which means that Hoodia Gordonii Plus goes
the extra mile to make sure mislabeling doesn’t occur. Designated quality
assurance personnel are responsible for proper labeling, while new labels are
crosschecked against the master label to detect and correct any errors in the
Lot Numbers No batch of
material can reach the pharmacy without its lot being checked for purity and
authenticity. The lot number system at Hoodia Gordonii Plus allows us to track
materials and orders throughout the entire production process. For all forms of
supplements the Director of Operations is responsible for inspecting equipment
and overseeing the labeling process.
All aspects of the manufacturing process are
subject to both scheduled and surprise inspections by quality control staff.
All the raw materials used in Hoodia
Gordonii Plus must pass stringent quality control tests before being utilized
to produce safe, effective herbal dietary supplements. In addition to selecting
the best possible suppliers and herbs, all our stock must pass an in-house
inspection before finding its way into a supplement.
Blending and Granulation Raw materials
undergo an on-site quality inspection and then processed according to strict,
product-specific guidelines. Storage of granulated material is guaranteed to
yield fresh, contamination-free product thanks to our specially designed
Encapsulation and Compression After an on-site
quality assurance test the granulated product is encapsulated in a test run. A
successful test unit becomes a sample unit, which is then compared to samples
from previous batches to ensure the maintenance of product quality and
integrity. Full-line production does not begin unless the sample unit meets our
quality control standards. Encapsulated products are stored with the same care
and attention as our granulated materials.
Packaging and Inspection Finished products
are subject to inspection by quality control staff that remove defective
products such as broken or overfilled capsules from the lot. Products that meet
our high standards are then packaged for bulk storage or are bottled and
labeled for consumer use. Hoodia Gordonii Plus product packages come with
tamper proof seals and FDA-required information to protect consumers.
