Young Living Seed to SealMillions of people around the world have discovered that a drop of pure essential oil can change everything for the better. Young Living is committed to establishing and maintaining the ultimate, industry-leading standard in essential oil products, so their work can keep changing lives as it has for two decades.
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.
PARTNERSHIP PRINCIPLESYoung Living sources from corporate-owned farms, as well as partner farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers. This empowers them to source conscientiously and with sensitivity to local communities and ecosystems. Young Living vets and selects like-minded suppliers according to five principles: Established Relationships, Seed to Seal Specifications, Binding Agreements, Stringent Testing, and Ongoing Audits.
FORMULATION AND PRODUCTIONYoung Living superior oils and ingredients deserve facilities and formulas to match. Their expanded distribution center in Spanish Fork, Utah, is a state-of-the-art facility where they use best manufacturing practices to test essential oils, ingredients, and products and to formulate and manufacture the innovative offerings we all love.
THIRD-PARTY SUBSTANTIATIONWhen 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.
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.
INDUSTRY-LEADING RESEARCHWhile 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 in Young Living's state-of-the-art labs to ensure that an inferior product never slips by.
THIRD-PARTY TESTINGProduct 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.
INNOVATIVE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENTYoung 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.
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.
Not only is the Young Living compliance program exhaustive, it’s also the first of its kind in the industry. It is the gold standard for compliance programs, and they are proud to have gone above and beyond to establish it. Young Living has engaged top legal experts around the world to keep them advised of the most current laws, as well as to inform them how to appropriately apply them to their most important business needs. The program ultimately determines 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. These steps provide even more evidence that Young Living is the industry leader in compliance.
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.
