31 Aug Sanitizing and Cleaning in Our Product Lab: An Interview With Our Product Formulator-Part 1 of 3
How does public health factor into your formulation process?
At BluPeak Botanics, we use cGMP practices. We are considered a food facility, and we take the health and wellness of our customers very seriously. We use our products ourselves and so do the members of our families. It’s important to us to use sanitary practices throughout every step of the process. From the intake of raw hemp material, to the finished products on the shelf. Having products that are safe and effective for our customers is our number one priority and goal, every time.
What precautions do you take to ensure the lab and the products are clean?
We always use FDA approved cleaning products and food grade supplies in our facility, including the formulation room, which is considered a clean room. We follow strict cleaning and sanitizing procedures to ensure that everything our products come into contact with are sanitary. We use hairnets, gloves, lab coats, and have hand-washing sinks in every room. Every surface is stainless steel, and every container we use is glass or stainless steel. These are food and lab grade approved materials. Every surface and dish is cleaned and sanitized before and after each batch of the product is made.
Why are these sanitation standards so important to you?
I am a bit of a germaphobe and a little OCD:) I have a very high standard for the cleanliness of our packaging and the formulation room, and the correct storage of the ingredients we use in our products. The health of our families is one of the most important things to us, and we know that our customers have families that are just as important to them. We use BluPeak Botanics products ourselves, and so do our families. I know they are safe to use, and that every precaution has been taken to create them in a clean and sanitary environment.
