Our members have always embraced Seed to Seal as a series of five rigorous quality control steps. We invite you to discover just how far these steps go. Seed to Seal is our set of standards that ensure that with every targeted supplement, every skin care solution and every pure essential oil your family uses, you’re enjoying the benefit of our global resources, industry leadership, and 23 years of innovation. The result? A pristine final product that you know has been created with conscientious sourcing, science and standards.
These three pillars of production contain our five Seed to Seal quality control steps for delivering transformative, innovative and pure products to you.
We source from our corporate-owned farms, as well as partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. We vet and select our like-minded suppliers according to five principles: Established Relationships, Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing and Ongoing Audits.
Formulation and Production
Our superior oils and ingredients deserve facilities and formulas to match. Our expanded distribution center in Spanish Fork, Utah, is a state-of-the-art facility where we use best manufacturing practices to test essential oils, ingredients, and products and to formulate and manufacture the innovative offerings you love.
When it comes to our partnerships, we trust but verify. To ensure that inferior or unethically sourced ingredients don’t find their way to your door, we use an extensive, full-access system of internal and third-party audits to monitor our supply chain.
While our product quality starts in the fields, it’s proven in the lab with research led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch. With his team’s combined 180 years of experience, they use advanced testing processes in our state-of-the-art labs to ensure that an inferior product never slips by.
Product testing doesn’t take place exclusively in-house. We also test product samples as needed with two independent, respected, and accredited labs that employ certified chemical analysts with over 300 years of combined laboratory experience.
Innovative Product Development
We create our pure, effective formulas with the cleanest and most innovative ingredients available. We also focus on what’s not in the formulas. We’ve developed an expanding list of 20 potentially harmful or harsh additives that may appear in mainstream products but will never be found in our line.
Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced, which is why we choose to partner with sources we know produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally, setting a top-tier standard for sustainability.
Sustainable Compliance Program
We have engaged top legal experts around the world to keep us advised of the most current laws, as well as to inform us how to appropriately apply them to our most important business needs. The program ultimately determines several specific legal factors associated with botanical harvesting in order to protect delicate landscapes, plants and wildlife, including knowing where, how, how much to plant and harvest, and more.
Industry Green Leader
Our efforts go beyond a conscientious supply chain. Young Living’s commitment to sustainable business includes reforestation of harvested trees; recycling at Young Living offices; and the construction of our brand-new, LEED-certified headquarters in Lehi, Utah. These efforts collectively add up to an industry-leading effort to respectfully partner with the earth.
