Ingredients as Pure and Perfect as Possible
From the very beginnings of homeopathy, the plant, animal, and mineral substances (called “strains”) at the origin of these medicines were of vital importance. Boiron continues this tradition with ingredients that are as pure and perfect as possible. The company goes to great lengths to ensure that substances are not contaminated by natural or human-made toxins. This process includes thorough quality control measures to assess the health and integrity of all active ingredients.
Boiron sources more than 1,000 botanical substances, including Arnica montana, Calendula officinalis, and Chamomilla, from botanists and harvesters who take care to preserve the plants used and the land on which they grow. Following strict environmental protection procedures, many of these are hand-picked whole in their pristine natural habitats and processed fresh, not dried. Cultivation occurs in areas untouched by pesticides or fertilizers, far from polluted industrial or urban zones.
Some medicines are derived from small animals, as well as from organotherapeutic sources. Boiron works with specialized companies to supply the materials and certify their quality, zoological identification, origin, and ethical method of procurement.
Boiron’s chemical and mineral substances are acquired from natural sources, such as oyster shells (Calcarea carbonica), or pharmaceutical-grade active ingredients.
Maintaining the Highest Standards in Manufacturing
Because homeopathic medicines are created in the realm of microdoses, their manufacturing is subject to very strict regulations and complex technological considerations. Using the latest technology and innovation, Boiron has developed high-performance manufacturing methods that ensure their medicines’ reliability.
Each stage of the manufacturing process, from raw material to finished product, is constantly controlled and tested to guarantee that every medicine is the best quality possible. As a result, Boiron maintains the highest standards in manufacturing, complying with current drug Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.
