At Mineralife, quality control begins with our process for selecting ingredient and component supplier partners. We search the globe to find the right partners that can meet our standards.
Factory Business Background Investigation
This process includes checking the company’s financial assets and background, investigation into compliance with labor laws and operations compliance issues. We investigate the number of years in business, other products made at their facility, operations to make the ingredient that are outsourced, and frequency of audits, last audit date, and finally, FDA or governmental enforcement actions (includes 483, Warning Letter or other).
Factory Licenses and Certifications Investigation
This includes documentation of business licenses; ISO 9001, ISO 22000, cGMP, HACCP, HALAL, Organic certifications and Non-GMO certifications along with any other certifications; and adherence to USP-NF monographs and Food Chemical Codex standards.
Onsite Factory Inspections
As part of our supplier partner selection process, we conduct a factory audit, either in person or through a representative of Mineralife. This audit begins with the physical inspection of the plant, onsite interviews and inspection of the factories quality control systems. It also includes the physical inspection of products to be purchased and the taking of samples for analysis by our own QC team.
In-House Lab Testing
Product samples are obtained and sent to our Mineralife facility for testing, inspection and product analysis in our in-house laboratory. R&D and test batches are created for conformity to our process methods and desired end use.
Product samples are sent to a third party U.S lab for identification, Assay, Heavy Metals testing (lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury) and microbial testing for total plate count, yeast and mold, E.Coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus Aureas and Coliforms, to verify the accuracy of the factories product specifications.
Samples of each batch of ingredient shipped to Mineralife are kept one year past shelf life after finishing the QC process. We have developed a testing program at Mineralife that seeks to ensure that the ingredient manufacturer’s claims of product shelf life and potency are accurate. We continue to monitor ingredient quality long after we have actually used the ingredient. We want to be sure of the long term quality of the ingredients we use and the suppliers we partner with.
Our ingredient and component suppliers are required to go through a requalification process every year. We do this to ensure nothing has changed with our chosen supplier that may affect the quality of their products.
