Progressive goes above and beyond to protect our consumers by ensuring every raw material is exactly what it should be going in and does not contain anything it should not, which includes adulteration, identification, contaminant, purity and microtesting through our 360 Pure Promise.
Our raw materials are sourced from some of the highest quality vendors in their industries. Our vendors undergo several rounds of review or approval before being given the green light by our World-Class Quality team. Once approved, they are added to our vendor approval program which is continuously monitored and managed through our quality team. We also work with our vendors regularly to ensure that every lot of product they supply meets our quality standards.
Not only do our raw materials undergo vigorous testing, but we also test every lot of raw material and finished product. Each step in our process warrants laboratory testing as well as verification and checks throughout the process using a variety of scientific technology to guarantee the potency, purity and safety of our products. We test for a variety of contaminants such as oxidative analytes, pesticide residues, heavy metals, PCB’s + Dioxins, and a range of microbial contaminants.
The safety of our consumers is always our number one priority. We have developed our testing procedures and processes to ensure we can guarantee that every lot that is sold to our consumers not only meets industry quality standards but meets Progressive’s quality standards.
