Young Living Seed to Seal
Young Living sets the standard for essential oil purity and authenticity, Worldwide. How? Young Living does it by carefully monitoring the production of their essential oils through their unique Seed to Seal® process. From the time the seed is sourced, until the oil is sealed in the bottle, Young Living applies the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils of the purest quality. With Young Living essential oils you’ll experience the full power that nature intended.
PILLAR 1: SOURCING
Because synthetics, contaminants, cheap fillers, and unethical production practices are not an option for the products in your home, Young Living Executive Vice President of Operations Lauren Walker guides the process of sourcing products from carefully vetted suppliers and testing them extensively. If these exhaustive tests show that a product doesn’t meet Young Living standards, they don’t buy it or reject the batch.
With private farms around the globe, Young Living also sources from certified suppliers. This benefits local communities, while Young Living selectively chooses based on Seed to Seal specifications, and then performs extensive testing on every batch of oils.
Formulation and Production
The industry's finest testing requires state-of-the-art facilities. Young Living's distribution center in Utah is exactly that. There practices are used for testing, formulation and manufacturing that are simply second to none. And it's a key part of the Seed to Seal promise.
When it comes to Young Living partnerships, they trust but verify. To ensure that inferior or unethically sourced ingredients don’t find their way to your door, Young Living uses an extensive, full-access system of internal and third-party audits to monitor their supply chain.
PILLAR 2: SCIENCE
Young Living insists on essential oils, products, and ingredients that have passed their stringent, unyielding quality benchmarks. Pure, genuine, effective ingredients that meet their demanding scientific standards are certainly more expensive, and formulating innovative offerings takes time, but they know you’ll appreciate authentic products that you can rely on without a second thought.
While Young Living product quality starts in the fields, it’s proven in the lab with research led by Chief Science Officer Dr. Mike Buch. With his team’s combined 180 years of experience, they use advanced testing processes to ensure that an inferior product never slips by.
Product testing doesn’t take place exclusively in-house. Young Living also tests product samples as needed with two independent, respected, and accredited labs that employ certified chemical analysts with over 300 years of combined laboratory experience.
Young Living creates pure, effective formulas with the cleanest and most innovative ingredients available. They also focus on what’s not in the formulas. They’ve developed an expanding list of 20 potentially harmful or harsh additives that may appear in mainstream products but will never be found in our line. Get all the ingredients you want and none of the ones you don’t.
PILLAR 3: STANDARDS
As the leaders of the modern essential oils movement and a close partner with the earth, it’s part of Young Living's stewardship to do business responsibly—from sustainably sourcing rare botanicals, to uplifting local communities, to going above and beyond to comply with local environmental rules. The goal? Offering a pure product that you know is part of a greater good.
Inexpensive essential oils are often synthetic, adulterated, or unethically sourced, which is why Young Living chooses to partner with sources they know produce pure essential oils and ingredients ethically and legally, setting a top-tier standard for sustainability.
Sustainable Compliance Program
Not only is the Young Living compliance program is the first of its kind in the industry. It exhausts several specific legal factors associated with botanical harvesting in order to protect delicate landscapes, plants, and wildlife, including knowing where, how, how much to plant and harvest, and more.
Industry Green Leader
Young Living efforts go beyond a conscientious supply chain. Young Living’s commitment to sustainable business includes reforestation of harvested trees; recycling at Young Living offices; and the construction of their brand-new, LEED-certified headquarters in Lehi, Utah. These efforts collectively add up to an industry-leading effort to respectfully partner with the earth.
