Cosmofarma is an innovative family business that produces natural health supplements and nutraceuticals. We are specialised in producing supplements for different sport disciplines, weight management and lifestyle.
We love and believe in what we do - producing the highest quality nutritional supplements. It is our goal to deliver a product which really makes a difference to a person’s health.
We have good relationships with our raw material suppliers and always receive the freshest possible ingredients. We verify both raw materials as they come in, and the finished products from production, to provide the highest quality vitamin, botanical and mineral supplements possible.
Our main characteristic
Producing the best natural products requires us to be choosy about our ingredients. We use, for example, only top quality proteins from grass fed cows. Grass fed cows are raised with respect, eat their natural diet, are milked according to season, are not given any growth hormones or antibiotics to increase the milk production.
Besides, we are specialized in producing supplements suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Next to this, we only work with natural ingredients and flavors. This means top ingredients friendly for the human body, kidney and liver. Our sourcing and quality control teams pay careful attention to each and every ingredient sourced from locations around the world. Therefore, we utilize an extensive audit program.
Investigation in state-of-the-art labs and a highly skilled science and technical team to test more frequently in-house on composition and purity. We manufacture and pack all our products in our state of the art clean room manufacturing facility (GMP-certified). To assure exceptional quality, our labs test and retest raw materials, ingredients and products at multiple steps in the manufacturing process. Next to this we work with accredited third party testing services to comply with the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
Besides, we constantly seek improvement. We review our processes to look for ways to improve on safety, quality, and efficiency. And with this kind of commitment and passion, anything is possible to design unique, signature products for our customers across the globe.
In conclusion, when you purchase one of our products, rest assured that we are acutely aware you’re looking for products you can trust and which can be consumed by people close to you. We feel the same way. That’s why we go with the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Enrolment Program.
We meet the Belgian (FAVV), European (EFSA) and USA (FDA) requirements for dietary supplements
And we go several steps beyond this:
- Certified Kosher and Halal for many products
- We have a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program in place
- We have an allergen program to reduce the potential for cross-contamination
- We have a dedicated team of Quality Assurance and Quality Control specialists who monitor that we establish, follow and document all GMPs
Satisfy these requirements means a lot for us. This makes sure our products are safe for human health. In our quest for the right ingredients we don’t look only for the most suitable raw materials but the synergy between the different ingredients also plays a vital role. When this process and the final formulation is approved by the Belgian, European and American legislations, we are beyond happiness. This notification gives our customers a sense of trust.
This trust is necessary for professional or recreative athletes who want to purchase our products. Knowing that our formulas, labels and products are controlled, tested and approved, can give them 100% guaranty our products do not contain any forbidden ingredients and are safe for human health.
From raw material to finished product
Creating a product is not a simple job. First we determine the purpose of the product. Next, we do a lot of research about the most suitable ingredients. We look for the ingredients that give the right synergy and a time-released process. Therefore, we try to use as much as bypass products to reduce the amount of waste substances. Once we have selected our ingredients, we go looking for the best supplier. We maintain several contact with first class suppliers who can deliver us clean and trustworthy products. The next steps are testing, producing, retesting, etc.
This whole process, from developing until launching, takes an average of 2 years. We do not want to rush because our main goal is to launch high quality products.
To ensure this quality we only use, for example, dry powder. Dry powder can maintain the best active substances. This means there will be no presence of bacteria or a degeneration of active ingredients. Thanks to this, we don’t have to add extra preservatives or synthetic products to guarantee the shelf life.
Another example is the usage of dark jars instead of transparant jar for not having a degeneration by light.
