Avalon Essentials is owned and operated by women. We donate a large portion of our profits to non profits and situations in need. We have a small village we support in the Himalayan foothills of India. We provided the funds for the drilling of a well to provide clean water for the first time to the entire village. Before the well was in all bathing and drinking water was carried in a bucket to the homes. Cows stood in the water, which was a big, dirty mud puddle. We built a school, and a medical clinic, we pay for the doctors, the school teachers, the books and the uniforms for the children. Other money is used as they see fit to provide additional food, medicine, clothing, and supplies the town needs.
We use only whole-food products, (no synthetics) and manufacture in an FDA approved laboratory. Our capsules are sodium lauryl sulphate free. Both Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and its close relative Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) are commonly used in many soaps, shampoos, detergents, toothpastes and DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS. SLS is banned from Dietary Supplements in many countries but not the United States. Most companies do not know SLS is dangerous or they do not want to spend the extra money to buy SLS free capsules. We use only SLS FREE capsules.
Avalon Essentials follows Good Manufacturing Practices. Good Manufacturing Practice regulations (GMPs) are used by pharmaceutical, medical device, and food manufacturers as they produce and test products that people use. In the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued these regulations as the minimum requirements.
