Our high-quality formulas are delivered in premium, sustainable, and recyclable packaging (recyclable amber glass bottles and jars, recyclable bags, and recyclable cardboard shipping boxes made from 100% recycled paper). Always looking towards the latest innovations, we carefully and intentionally source our eco-friendly packaging to prioritize the environment, but also to protect the premium ingredients in our capsules, gelcaps, and powders (i.e., vitamins, minerals, botanicals, peptides, probiotics, bioactives) from UV light degradation. This is pivotal to ensure quality standards throughout the lifecycle of the product.
Unfortunately many refillable bags or containers do not provide the same protection and stability for our ingredients as our amber glass (bottles, jars) and PET bags achieve. What's more, the product-specific manufacturing information (i.e., specific identifiers such as the lot and date) stamped on each product would be lost when the customer discards the refill packaging, as is customary. That lost information would not enable us to comply with a variety of very important FDA regulations specific to dietary supplements (e.g., cGMPs, adverse event reporting, etc.), and regulatory compliance is something that mindbodygreen respects and prioritizes. From an additional safety standpoint, there are also microbial contamination concerns with refillable vessels over time. Thank you for your consideration as to why we have thoughtfully curated our packaging in the way we do.
