Product Safety

Quality

With all of the recent news about tainted toys and food products from China, it is understandable that many customers are concerned about the safety of Chinese herbal products. We have accordingly taken strong measures to ensure that our products are safe for use.

All of our Chinese herbs are supplied by importers which are licensed by Health Canada, and we manufacture all of our tinctures ourselves, at our facility in Ontario, Canada. We only use distilled water for our tinctures, and we are compliant with Health Canada's site licensing and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) requirements.

Independent Lab Testing

In order to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety, we recognize that it is not enough to rely on licensed importers or our own in-house quality assurances. That is why we also use a third-party laboratory to test our products. Every single batch of our products is subjected to chemical testing at a third-party laboratory, to look for impurities which might otherwise be a threat to safety.

We currently use ILC Micro-Chem Labs in Mississauga, Ontario, and they perform tests for the following impurities:

Heavy Metals

  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Arsenic

Organics

  • Aerobic Plate Count
  • Anaerobic Plate Count
  • E.coli
  • Pseumonoas
  • Salmonella Confirmation
  • Staphylococcus Aureus
  • Yeast & Mould Plate Count

Pesticides

  • Alachlor
  • Ametryn
  • Atrazine
  • Atrazine Desethyl
  • Azinphos-Methyl
  • Bendiocarb
  • Carbaryl
  • Carbofuran
  • Chlorpyrifos
  • Cyanazine
  • Diazinon
  • Diclofop-Methyl
  • Dimethoate
  • Malathion
  • Methyl Parathion
  • Metolachlor
  • Metribuzin
  • Parathion
  • Phorate
  • Prometon
  • Prometryne
  • Propazine
  • Simazine
  • Temephos
  • Terbufos
  • Terbutryn
  • Triallate
  • Trifluralin

If any batch of product is found to contain unsafe impurity levels through these tests, the batch is destroyed. As always, we strive to protect the safety of our customers at all times, by ensuring strict quality and safety standards in our tinctures.
