iHerb is where I shop for almost every herbal and nutritional supplement, body care and beauty product, and lifestyle staple. For me, iHerb is a one stop shop for high quality goods at super low prices – in fact, their prices are so low I’m not sure how they stay in business! I’m addicted and I think you will be too!
Top 10 reasons to make iHerb your number one choice!
1. Shop directly and save!
iHerb.com is one of the world’s largest online stores for natural products. We have been in business since 1996 and have two distribution centers, based in California and Kentucky.
Browse our site and you’ll find over 1,200 brands and 35,000 brand name products that you may also find at health food stores and natural pharmacies — with one important difference: iHerb’s prices are typically 30 – 40% less. Also, don’t forget to check iHerb’s Specials page for additional discounts on some best-selling products.
2. Free or discounted shipping
Every iHerb order is eligible to receive discounted or free shipping! In general, the more products you add to your cart, the greater the likelihood that you will receive free shipping. In some cases you’ll even find that ordering one product alone may result in free shipping. We encourage you to experiment with different product combinations in order to find the best value, and share your cart with others! iHerb is the world’s leader in bringing the best overall value in natural products to its customers.
3. Honest customer product reviews
Unlike retailers that display third-party reviews, all of iHerb’s reviews are written by iHerb customers. In order to write a review, you must have ordered the product from iHerb first. This means you receive honest and candid reviews, thereby helping you make a smarter buying decision.
4. Assurance of freshness with expiration dates
Because they have one of the highest product turnover rates in the industry, iHerb is able to offer you the FRESHEST products possible! Our inventory turnover rate averages to 8.1 times per year; among the highest turnover rates, if not the highest, in our industry. This means that iHerb products are on the shelf an average of only 45 days!
Plus, most products we carry have expiration or best-by dates, which can be accessed on the product page. It’s like holding the real bottle or package in your hand, as you would in a typical “brick and mortar” store.
5. Air-conditioned, super clean warehouses
iHerb’s distribution centers are entirely climate-controlled, which protects the products from such conditions as humidity, heat and cold. This level of quality control is employed by iHerb to ensure product effectiveness for the customer. In addition, iHerb’s distribution centers are industry certified by NSF International, earning Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification.
6. Solid personal privacy commitment
Personal privacy is critically important to us. Since 1996, iHerb has never sold, leased or shared any customer information with third parties. Your personal information remains entirely confidential.
7. 24 hour/7 day customer service
One of the ways iHerb can offer such low prices is by automating the whole ordering process. While our customer service agents don’t actually take orders, they do offer live customer support from our California facility, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time), Monday – Friday. We are also reachable 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, by chat and email to answer questions and resolve issues with your order. Of course, nobody’s perfect. We may get quite busy at times and we ask for a little patience. We’ll do our best to take care of things promptly, efficiently and courteously — this is what our customers deserve!
8. Save even more by helping others save!
As an iHerb customer, share your favorite iHerb products or categories, or even a shopping cart containing multiple products with others via simple Rewards links, and you will save even more!
9. A greener way to shop
When you shop with iHerb, you’re part of a global solution. iHerb uses 100% post-consumer recycled paper for 90% of all shipping boxes. Our bubble wrap is 40% recyclable, and we recycle virtually all packing materials received from manufacturers. All in the interest of a healthier, more sustainable planet!
