“Nature was my favorite University”

Alfred Vogel, Swiss naturopath

Medicinal herbs are delicate plants with a hidden huge force of Nature, that are endowed with valuable substances and medicinal properties. What is taken into account in the process of production of the medicines is really the traditional knowledge of Swiss manufacturers concerning the collecting, drying and extraction of medicinal plants, together with modern technologies and the latest laboratory research.

Food additives produced in Switzerland comply with all strict rules of pharmaceutical production, which meets the highest requirements of GMP — quality standard is always a priority of regulations. Our manufacturers allow testing and analysing all raw materials and final medicinal and cosmetic products by independent agencies, such as the Federal and cantonal laboratories of Switzerland.

We care about Nature

Our partner factories use only the «green» energy of renewable resources — hydroelectric power stations of the Swiss Alps. To contribute to global climate protection, producers control carbon dioxide emissions, engage in organic farming, and participate in «Pro Specie Rar» funds programs.

Cooperation with «BirdLife Switzerland» is aimed at preserving, protecting and improving the quality of the environment, including the protection of the natural habitat of wild «flora and fauna» and is the most important goal pursued by our producers.

Health and life in harmony with nature is a conscious responsibility of each person.

The company Dr. Dünner uses only wild swiss plants and excludes genetically modified raw materials. Dr.Dünner uses medicinal herbs collected in Switzerland, or selected plant materials from warmer climates.

All supplies of raw materials for the production of medicines of the Swiss manufacturer Dr. Dünner are subjected to rigorous testing with a clear tracking of all stages: from the origin of the plant to its growth and collection process.

Philosophy of Dr. Dünner company: «Despite the fact that there is a number of producers of organic products on many continents (which also offer herbs and medicinal plants on very favorable terms), we first ask ourselves whether it makes sense to transport the same herbs thousands of kilometers away and buy plants grown commercially or often collected uncontrollably in the wild nature. That is why we decided to use in our production the plants that grow on certified organic farms in Switzerland, in rural areas, away from industrial zones and urban settlements, located in the Alpine and pre-Alpine regions, as well as in the unique biosphere reserve of UNESCO.

If we use plants or herbs that do not grow in Switzerland, but are necessary for production, we get raw materials of environmentally friendly quality from small manufacturing plants, located in more remote countries. All important production stages and final inspections are carried out in Switzerland in accordance with strict Swiss quality criteria».
