Our Brand and Product Selection Criteria

At Health Reporter, we maintain a rigorous and professional approach to vetting brands and products in the health and wellness industry. Our process is straightforward and designed to ensure the highest standards of credibility and trustworthiness.

#1 Product/Brand Evaluation

We assess both the product and the brand based on the following criteria:

  • Credibility and Reputation: We evaluate the track record and reputation of the product and brand.
  • Company Integrity: We examine the company’s ethical conduct and commitment to consumer satisfaction.
  • Public Concerns: We stay vigilant about any public controversies or concerns, ensuring that past issues are resolved responsibly.
  • Company Experience: We consider the maturity and experience of the company, which often correlates with product quality.
  • Public Information: We gather information from various sources, including consumer feedback, industry reports, and regulatory agencies, to form a comprehensive assessment.

#2 Our Vetting Process

Our vetting process is systematic and includes the following key aspects:

  • Evidence-Based Claims: We assess the scientific basis of health or medical claims made by the product.
  • Healthy Lifestyle Promotion: We ensure products promote a healthy lifestyle without endorsing stereotypes or unhealthy goals.
  • Industry Standards: Products must adhere to industry standards and best practices.
  • Third-Party Certifications: We look for third-party certifications that validate product quality and safety.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Products with FDA or FTC warning letters or unresolved issues are not recommended.
  • Legal History: We consider any past or pending lawsuits related to employment, marketing practices, or class-action lawsuits.
  • Transparent Labeling: Products must have clear and compliant ingredient lists and labeling.

#3 Commission Disclosure and Liability

It’s important to note that we maintain partnerships with certain brands and may receive commissions from recommended products through our website links. These commissions help support our site’s functionality and the information we provide. 

Our evaluations are partially based on publicly available information, much of which is provided by the brand or product itself. Therefore, any claims or issues related to the product fall under the responsibility and liability of the brand.

#4 Ongoing Monitoring

Our commitment to your safety and satisfaction extends beyond the initial evaluation. We have a dedicated team of specialists who continuously monitor our partner brands and products. Their expertise ensures that the products we recommend maintain the highest standards of quality, efficacy, and safety.

If a brand falls short, we promptly remove it from our content. If a product does not pass our review process, we provide clear reasons to help you make informed choices.

#5 Evolving Standards

To maintain credibility, we regularly reassess products and brands. If a product or brand changes its claims, reputation, or if there are concerns about questionable practices, we may remove it from our content.

While we strive to be thorough in our reviews, please note that the vast health and wellness landscape means immediate updates are not always possible. Nevertheless, our commitment to your well-being remains steadfast, ensuring trustworthy recommendations.
