Purity Testing

Purity isn’t just about quality—it’s also about commitment.

The plants used in our herbal extracts must meet or exceed our exacting standards for purity. Crops are harvested at the peak of bioactivity, and relevant parts—such as seeds, flowers, leaves, stems, tubers, or rhizomes—must be delivered to our laboratory whole and intact in order to ensure that key bioactive constituents are preserved, and that species validation can be verified in every shipment.

Every batch of raw materials is quarantined upon arrival at our processing facility until Gaia plant biologist Jackie Greenfield, Vice President of Global Sourcing and Sustainability, personally inspects and analyzes each batch to confirm its identity and that the plants have not been damaged during cultivation or shipping.

Beyond visual and tactile inspection, tests are also conducted to ensure the absence of heavy metal toxicity, pesticides, and other chemical contaminants, as well as salmonella, E. coli, mold, yeast, and other microbial contaminants. This is also the point where the first round of analytical testing is used to verify the levels of bioactive constituents. If any batch of raw material fails to meet our standards, it is immediately destroyed or discarded.
