One step further in offering premium quality certified products at the right price.
HSN is certified
At HSN, we’re always transparent, and we’ve always explained our situation regarding the status of IFOS certification for Ultra Omega-3:
As it is our wish to follow all processes in a completely transparent way, we avoided including the IFOS logo on our product, even though its raw material was certified, as the certification was in the name of the fish oil manufacturer, and not in our name: the dietary supplement manufacturer.
You know what, guys? It was only a matter of time… And we’re certified!
We’re now a company with IFOS certified products, and approved to an outstanding level!
Nutrasource has awarded us 5 stars out of 5 according to IFOS certification standards. The best you can get, of course. We didn’t doubt it 😉
And access the analysis of our products through any of the two reports published to date:
And it doesn’t stop there!
What is IFOS
IFOS™ (International Fish Oil Standards) is Nutrasource’s most traditional and well-known certification, launched in 2004, based on the analysis of marine oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids to ensure their quality, safety and purity.
It’s a long road
At HSN, we work with the highest quality raw materials on the market, we take the process of finding the ingredients with which we develop our products very seriously, and we demand what we offer: the highest quality standards.
Our Ultra Omega-3 TG 1000mg is one of the most sought-after dietary supplements based on fish oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids (350mg EPA / 250mg DHA) on our website.
The problem with today’s market
Nutrasource follows strict conditions to ensure the highest quality of its certification standards, and compliance with them by certified products.
Despite this, many companies use “IFOS Certified”, “5/5 IFOS stars” or simply use the logo on their website or their packaging, without being endorsed by Nutrasource.
No product that is not identified, by batch and reference, in the directory of brands and certified products of Nutrasource (the IFOS certification company) is officially certified.
Nutrasource invites you to share with them any IFOS product you want to buy but cannot find in their directory.
This is done to monitor the illegal use of statements related to the use of certification , as if it’s not found in this directory, there’s no right of use of the trademark or for mentions of possession of the certification.
IFOS 5-Stars: What does it mean?
IFOS is a certification based on 5 categories of analysis, each corresponding to a star, and compliance with Nutrasource standards for each of the 5 categories identifies a product of maximum quality, purity and safety.
Our Ultra Omega-3 TG 1000mg has been certified with 5/5 stars, complying with the values established by Nutrasource as valid for compliance with its IFOS standards.
- Concentration of Omega-3 according to that indicated on the label
- Meets IFOS oxidation standards
- Complies with IFOS standards for PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) and PCDD/F (Dioxins and Furans)
- Meets IFOS Heavy Metals Standards
- Meets all categories of IFOS analysis
At HSN, we are committed to the highest quality, safety and transparency!
For inventory reasons, the IFOS logo will still not appear on our packaging until we have exhausted the labels already printed without the logo.
This is because the inclusion of the certification logo is the only change that the product will undergo, as we already used raw material certified with IFOS before it was obtained, so all the current labelling information is correct and will be kept on the market to avoid discarding materials unnecessarily.
You can check that the certification is correct with the report published on the Nutrasource website.
