What ‘grade’ are Nature’s Sunshine Essential Oils?

The truth is that there is no such thing as a ‘grade’ of essential oil. Terms like ‘Certified Therapeutic’, number designations or letter grades assigned to essential oils are strictly marketing language created by the very corporations that utilize them. Which begs the question, how meaningful are these self-certifications? Not very. There is no independent, third party body that evaluates essential oils and assigns them a rating or a ‘grade’.

At Nature’s Sunshine, we focus on the authenticity of our oils by providing transparency through the complete product lifecycle. In order to consistently meet phony man-made standards which these ‘certified’ oils necessitate, many manufacturers will tamper with the oil that comes from nature.

Tweaking an oil’s natural phytochemical profile with adulterants, synthetics or lower grades of plant species is commonplace. That’s why Nature’s Sunshine’s SureSource™ guarantee is so important. It provides tangible proof that the oil that leaves the distillery matches the oil delivered to your doorstep and that no funny business happens in between.

Other companies with ‘certified’, made-up grades simply cannot match the validity of our SureSource guarantee.
