Solaray Means Quality
Every Solaray product is subjected to rigorous testing and screening protocols. The process may vary by ingredient, but typically includes organoleptic (taste, touch, smell) testing to compare it to previous batches, and lab assays for microbial, identity, purity and potency validation. Only when an ingredient has passed all of the required assays is it released to manufacturing. Solaray adheres to all current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and an independent auditing firm audits Solaray's facilities, laboratory and manufacturing protocols for compliance with the latest regulations.
The Green Screened logo represents their commitment at Solaray to providing herbs of the utmost quality. The Solaray brand employs quality control standards in all areas of product development - from ensuring identification and authenticity by laboratory analysis to screening for microbes, herbicides and pesticides to heavy metal testing. Solaray rejects herbs they suspect are irradiated. Only after Solaray's laboratory analysis program confirms that the herbs meet Solaray's strict standards do they give the product their Green Screened approval.

Last year, I had to stop taking a comparable product because of its high cost. When I saw that Solaray had this for a third of the price, I thought I've give it a try and I'm very pleased. It's all natural and cold-pressed (which is supposed to be important with supplements of this type because heat can destroy the nutrients). Less than two weeks into taking BCS again, I'm noticing the benefits I experienced before--better skin and hair, as well as a decrease in symptoms of PMS--and this Solaray brand also seems to be particularly fresh compared to my previous brand. I highly recommend it, especially at the Lucky Vitamin price!
Someone recommended black currant seed oil to me when I began having temperature control issues that disrupted my sleep during menopause. After two weeks of taking two capsules/day, my hot flashes diminished during the day and at night and my sleep improved. I have used the Solaray product for a few years, and like the fact that it's hexane-free.
Very good quality at an affordable price
Good product but should to be suspended in Vit. E oil for a better shelf life
I heard that on Dr, Oz, this stuff makes your hair stop falling. It's too early to tell, but my hair is shedding less. Will continue to take to see what happens.
