This enables us to produce herbal products with uniform levels of batch-to-batch consistency and ensures that the customer receives the same high quality product regardless of where it is purchased.

We also perform tests using analytical chemistry to ensure the purity of the herbs we use in our products; we look at the viscosity and pH balance of herbs including the identification of active constituents and microbial content, in addition to the total viable count, and the presence of fungus, yeast and mold. Scientific testing has been a hallmark at Himalaya since 1930 when we embarked on our journey to make quality herbal products.
