Manufacturing Process

Boiron homeopathic medicines are prepared in accordance with our traditional values, as well as our commitment to technological innovation. We also take great care to adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) to ensure the quality and reliability of our products.

 

 

1. Source materials

More than 3,000 plant, animal and mineral substances are used to produce homeopathic medicines. Wild plants are gathered in the natural habitat, and cultivated plants come from the organic farms where they are grown. All harvesting operations respect the natural balance between animal and plant life and the rhythm of the seasons. The freshly gathered ingredients are then used to produce mother tinctures

2. Mother tinctures

Most mother tinctures are made by crushing the base substance and mixing it with water and alcohol.

3. Dilution and dynamization (potentization)

The homeopathic dilution process involves a series of successive deconcentrations of a mother tincture, ensuring that the resulting medicine is toxin-free and safe.

The solution is then shaken (“succussed”) after each new dilution. This is called dynamization or potentization.

4. Impregnation

A neutral substance – usually pellets  or globules – is then impregnated with the liquid homeopathic dilution.

5. Processing

The homeopathic medicine is processed and packaged as pellets, globules, ointments, drops, syrups or other formulations, depending on the intended medical use.

6. Quality control

All Boiron products adhere to French, European and North American pharmaceutical standards (Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Health Canada).

Our multidisciplinary team of pharmacists, chemists, botanists and technicians carefully monitor each stage of the manufacturing process in order to ensure every homeopathic medicine meets Boiron’s strict quality and reliability requirements
