Our Essence range is nothing short of exceptional and it’s not just because we say so. The science behind all our products is second to none and Essence is no different. Not only does Isagenix® meet the industry standards for quality, we exceed it with our no-compromise standards.
The only way to truly appreciate the quality our all our products is to see each and every step, from plant to final product. This is how our Essence products come to life:
Step 1- Crop selection based on evidence that shows benefits
We partner with only carefully vetted and responsible suppliers that have more than 100 years of combined experience in the growing, harvesting and manufacturing of essential oils. These relationships are how we find the most sought-after raw materials around the world. But it doesn’t stop there…
We then select naturally occurring aromatic plants based on evidence that shows benefits, paying special attention to the plant origin and the part of the plant from which oil is extracted.
Step 2- Meticulously executed extraction
Depending on the species and plant part, our oils are extracted using steam distillation or cold pressing. Steam distillation passes steam through the plant material to collect the essential oils, while cold pressing extracts the oils; by mechanically crushing the plant followed by separating the essential oil via centrifugal force.
Step 3- Expert organoleptic testing
Then the testing begins! The extracted oils are sent to Isagenix for organoleptic testing and approval, to make sure the appearance, colour and fragrance meet our high standards. If the oil is not up to the standards of our trained experts, it is rejected.
Step 4- ISO standards verification by third-party testing labs
After a thumbs up from the Isagenix team, the oils are sent to industry-leading, third-party laboratories in both the US and Canada to perform identification, purity, analytical and microbiological testing. These thorough tests detect all the components that make up the specific oil and ensure that each meets the high standards set by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) — which validate the quality and purity of the oil. Every lot is tested for purity and quality again before they’re released for bottling!
Step 5- Bottling in internationally-regulated facilities
The Isagenix Quality Control and Assurance team approve the oils to be filled, bottled and labelled at internationally-regulated food facilities that have been thoroughly vetted and meet our no- compromise quality standards.
Step 6- Microbiological testing by third-party labs
The oils are sampled and submitted to third-party laboratories for microbiological testing to ensure the oils are 100 per cent pure and free of bacterial contaminants. An additional organoleptic test is also performed to ensure quality.
Step 7- Isagenix Quality Assurance Review
Samples from each batch of Essence are shipped to Isagenix World Headquarters in Arizona for final evaluation by our Quality Assurance team. Sensory, analytical and documentation verifications are performed prior to the oils’ arrival in our distribution centres.
Step 8- Safe delivery of no-compromise, shatter- and leak-proof packaged products
Finally, 100 per cent pure, authentic and no-compromise Essence by Isagenix Essential Oil products are packaged in shatter- and leak-proof packaging to ensure that the integrity and quality of each individual oil is safely delivered to your door!
