We Promise Safety and Quality
We have made over 6 billion capsules and shipped to every continent except Antarctica. But we still test every lot of oil and capsules. So you don't need to worry about quality and safety – that's our promise. But don't take our word. Trust our many approvals and registrations.
We Promise a Humane and Sustainable Harvest
For 500 years, generations of east coast communities have harvested harp seals. We respect the need for a humane, professional and sustainable seal harvest. Sealers have training, experience and licences. They harvest harp seals based on practices created by veterinarians.
