Cedar Bear Naturales® Multi-Layers of QA/QC (Quality Assurance / Quality Control) Standards
Cedar Bear Naturales® is a company of many layers of QA/QC standards. Its departments all adhere to the same exacting and stringent multi-levels of QA/QC standards. These standards serve three purposes. 1st is to assure that safe and accurate ingredients are used in all products we produce. 2nd is to make sure that the controls are in place for clean contaminant-free production that meets the highest standards for our industry. and 3rd is to assure that the finished products are verified as being safe for human and animal consumption.
The following QA/QC standards are utilized and adhered to by Cedar Bear® and its departments at all times and in all instances:
U.S. FDA cGMP Inspected
cGMP stands for 'current Good Manufacturing Practices.' The cGMP standard that all companies in the dietary supplements industry (which herbal manufacturers are part of) must comply with is the U.S. Federal Government's Title 21 FDA cGMP rules & regulation policy for dietary supplements. Though different than FDA cGMP standards for the drugs & pharmaceutical industry, the FDA cGMP standards for herbal & dietary supplements industry are very detailed and stringent, and in some areas are more restrictive and stringent than that for drug & pharmaceutical industry cGMP rules & regulations.
Cedar Bear FDA cGMP standards for dietary supplements are guided by 21 CFR 111 and 21 CFR 110 policy & rules. 111 deals with all aspects of the 'intrinsic' product itself, while 110 deals with product labeling and claims issues. Both are part of FDA cGMP oversight of the herbal & dietary supplements industry for product quality & safety, and compliance of product labeling & claims.Cedar Bear Naturales® is FDA cGMP inspected on an ongoing basis.
Cedar Bear Naturales® facility and operations are NSF certified.
Totally 100% Alcohol-Free
NO alcohol is ever used at any time in the making of a Cedar Bear® product – NONE! For Cedar Bear® this is a huge quality issue, as there are still competitor companies in our industry who falsely claim and list on their product labels that they are 'alcohol-free' when they are in fact 'alcohol-removed' or 'dealcoholized' products being passed off as alcohol-free. Doing so is also against the law!
In the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) for Title 21 regarding this issue, the FDA has a clearly stated policy that if any alcohol is used in the making of a product that product cannot claim or be labeled as 'alcohol-free,' even if the alcohol has been removed. Fact is, it's impossible to remove all the alcohol from a product as anywhere from 2% to 5% of residual alcohol remains in a product depending on the makeup of a product, You are quality assured that all Cedar Bear® products are indeed totally 100% 'true' Alcohol-Free!
Kosher (Kashrus) Certified
Kosher' is a very stringent consumables preparation standard rooted in antiquity and proven in modern food and dietary science. Where the word 'kashrus' is used, it means to be in a state of being kosher, which all Cedar Bear Naturales® retail brands are.
Alcohol must never ever touch a consumable product, for to do so would mean that product is 'Haraam,' which means 'unclean' and contrary to Islamic dietary law.
FDA 21 CFR Part 201 Labeling Compliant
