Heliocare Earns NSF Good Manufacturing Practice Registration For IFC Manufacturing Facility


Ferndale Healthcare, Inc.’s IFC manufacturing facility for its Heliocare® brand is now a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) facility registered by NSF International, an independent organization recognized as the world leader in standards development, product certification, education and risk-management.

Earning GMP registration from NSF International verifies that IFC’s facility has the proper methods, equipment, facilities, and controls in place for producing dietary supplement products. NSF GMPs were developed in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR part 111 regulations for the manufacturing, packaging, and distribution of dietary supplements. Utilizing GMP regulations assists companies in developing and maintaining proper controls in their manufacturing process so that products are processed, manufactured and labeled in a consistent manner, and meet quality standards.

“Adding this prestigious registration to the collection of registrations and certificates our manufacturing facilities have already earned is another example of Ferndale Healthcare’s all encompassing commitment to quality,” stated Betsy Habich, Senior Product Manager for Heliocare®. “We’re pleased to offer our customers the additional assurance that Heliocare is produced under the strictest guidelines in the industry.”

Heliocare® is an oral dietary supplement with antioxidant properties that helps preserve the skin’s ability to protect itself against sun-related effects and aging, according to the company. The antioxidant aids in eliminating free radicals produced by sun exposure. A reduction in these free radicals helps to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin.

The company says that adding its facility as a GMP registered one, thanks to NSF’s established GMP program, demonstrates its ongoing commitment to providing high-quality value-added products that help patients get back to what matters most in their lives—living well.
