Made in Switzerland
The enormous potential of natural Tibetan recipes can only be fully exploited if the products are manufactured according to high quality standards and are controlled.
All PADMA products are manufactured and tested in our own production in Wetzikon (Switzerland) according to internationally accepted guidelines for pharmaceutical products.
The standards of good manufacturing practice (GMP) apply to all manufacturing steps, as usual in manufacturing modern medicines.
“Made in Switzerland” is not just a label for us; it belongs to our history. Therefore, we are deliberately committed to a future in Switzerland, and we are providing our products in as many countries as possible.
Natural raw materials
The PADMA products comprise dried and ground parts of plants and minerals, which are carefully mixed and filled into capsules.
The plants are used in a natural state, without means of extraction or other chemical processes. We also deliberately forego additives, such as preservatives, flavorings, flavor enhancers, or dyes.
The formulas should be natural and authentic and meet our Western quality standards.
Herbal products must be produced gently and softly so that the active effects of the herbs are preserved. Production is carried out according to the high quality standards of the pharmaceutical industry in our factory in Switzerland, which specialises in Tibetan formulations.
The raw materials come from various parts of the world. When purchasing, a particular emphasis is placed on purity, quality, and sustainability. Most of our medicinal plants come from specialized cultivation projects.
This makes it easier to control the quality of the plants, and it remains constant. It also makes the confusion with other plant species impossible.
A part of the PADMA-plants come from controlled wild collection. With our suppliers, we are striving to avoid an overuse by training the collector. Wild collection or cultivation, all plant-based raw materials adhere to the strict requirements of the international pharmaceutical policy for making herbal medicines GACP (good agricultural and collection practices for starting material of herbal origin) and meet the official pharmacopoeia.
PADMA is also committed to fair trade. Where possible, we work directly with producers locally and aspire to maintain partnerships for many years.
To establish sustainable and resource-friendly plant compositions, some plants are grown specifically for the PADMA per organic guidelines in the European area.
Unlike many preparations whose raw materials are produced exclusively in China or Asia, there is no such dependence on individual suppliers and countries. This minimises the risk of supply bottlenecks, as is the case with various other products due to the current high demand or problems in the supply chain.
The production takes place according to internationally recognized GMP guidelines for pharmaceutical products. Regular official inspections guarantee quality and safety of PADMA products.
The raw materials used must meet all strict regulatory quality requirements. Careful quality controls in external and in-house laboratories ensure only high-quality plant parts are used in processing.
Up to five times before and during the manufacturing process, the plant ingredients are reviewed on their identity, and their active ingredients are tested.
The specialists of PADMA use not only modern chemical analytical methods, but also their fine noses and tongues.
The human organs of perception are represented in the so-called organoleptic test, a highly sensitive instrument and perfectly complement the technical test instruments.
Especially the taste is tested in this way, according to Tibetan tradition, also responsible for the effect of the formulation.
The purity of the used plant parts is especially important. Every raw material is carefully tested during the purchase and after each step in processing (grinding, mixing, encapsulation), regarding pesticide residue, contamination with heavy metals, and mold checks.
The regulations and statutory limits are strictly adhered to, which are controlled and audited by independent external laboratories.
The quality of the products is monitored during the entire manufacturing process. For hygiene reasons and to protect the finished capsules from environmental influences, like moisture and light, they are sealed in blister packs.
Before the finished product leaves PADMA, it was subjected to up to 300 quality and purity tests. Depending on the product.
To preserve the knowledge of Tibetan Medicine, we have made an effort, since the beginning and into future, to promote scientific research into the healing properties of Tibetan formulas.
Our formulas are part of the heritage and tradition of the Tibetan constitutional teachings. We want to preserve the centuries-old and proven knowledge from Tibet and make it usable for the people all over the world.
The centuries–old recipes consist of a variety of different natural substances that support each other in their nutritional properties and can thus harmonise imbalances in the body.
