- What is Hilma?
- Hilma is helping you bring clean labels to your medicine cabinet with natural remedies, backed by science. Hilma's products are free of dyes and fillers, and have <1g of sugar. All of our products are scientifically backed and tested, which is why we call them “clinical herbals”. We only use ingredients that have been clinically substantiated, and we also run our own clinical research on each of our products. We use ingredients that have worked for thousands of years, but we formulate only when the science agrees. Read more on Our Story.
- How was Hilma started?
- Hilma was born out of our founders’ search for natural remedies that they could trust. They wanted options that were accessible, scientifically rigorous, and manufactured with quality and transparency in mind. While their homes were full of beauty and personal care products that were natural, they noticed an inconsistency in their medicine cabinets. The legacy over-the-counter products had the dyes, fillers and sugars that they were trying to avoid, and generally didn’t feel like the best choice. However, the natural options weren’t easy to access; they were confusing or intimidating to use, some were not grounded in scientific research, and others did not provide the quality in sourcing and manufacturing that they’d learned to expect. Often, the best natural options were not available in places they shopped, or required a healthcare professional to help navigate the clutter with a trustworthy recommendation. Together, they were inspired to find a solution that allowed them to feel better in a better way. They spent over two years researching, found highly respected doctors and scientists to come along for the journey, and have now built a natural brand with a rigorous scientific standard that brings clarity to a category that is long overdue for a change. Every day, Hilma strives to make the most effective natural remedies and become the new standard for the way people get back on their feet.

General Product Questions
- What is your “no list” and why is it important?
- Our ‘no list’ is important because there are many ingredients on the market that are allowed to legally be in our products, but they don't meet our standards for quality. We have leaned on the research of organizations such as The Environmental Working Group, as well as on our team of scientific advisors to help inform what we keep out of our products. There are over 40 types of ingredients on our ‘No list’ including talc, stearates (which inhibit your body’s absorption of nutrients), and many others. See our No List here. In addition to our ‘no list’, we commit to all of our products being: Non-GMO, dairy-free, soy-free, <1g sugar, vegan, gluten-free, and not tested on animals. Note that our products do not contain milk, egg, soy, or tree nuts. They are packaged in a shared cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility that also produces products with those allergens.
- What makes it different from other natural products?
- Hilma is an herbal supplement. Compared to other natural products on the market, we focus on bringing you the most scientifically supported products while also eliminating unnecessary artificial dyes, sweeteners, and preservatives and best-in-class manufacturing processes. Our product development process leans heavily on science. This focus on science differentiates us from other herbal and natural products, thus creating a new standard for herbals--the Clinical Herbal. This means, we only use ingredients that have been clinically researched, we co-formulate with our scientific advisory board to reinforce choices and claims, and we do our own research with consumers in clinical studies in order to prove efficacy
- How does Hilma manufacture its products?
- We have strict manufacturing requirements of all our manufacturing partners--each partner must be certified and regularly audited by industry experts. We are a proud member of the Council for Responsible Nutrition, the leading trade organization in our space. CRN promotes the responsible development of supplements and functional foods, as well as provides guidance on best practices for manufacturing products to the highest standard.
- Are your products vegetarian and vegan?
- Are your products organic?
- We source organic ingredients in our products whenever it is a superior ingredient and available, and many of our ingredients are organic. However, our full product is not certified organic for two main reasons: 1) certain herbs or herb forms are not available in an organic form, and therefore we would not be able to include key ingredients that make our products effective, despite there being incredibly high quality, pesticide-free, sources out there. And 2) the main reason behind buying organic is to avoid certain pesticides, and we ask our raw materials suppliers for their pesticide testing on all ingredients going into the product, organic or not, to ensure it is of the highest quality.
- Are your products non-GMO?
- Yes, all of our products are non-GMO.
- Are your products Kosher?
- Our ingredients are all Kosher but our full products are not blessed and therefore are not Kosher.
- What certifications does your facility have?
- All of our manufacturers are regularly NSF audited and cGMP certified.
- Is your packaging recyclable?
- All our packaging is 100% recyclable. Please recycle it! Our environmental impact is important to us, and we are reducing our impact by purchasing carbon offsets to cover both our manufacturing footprint as well as our team’s footprint. You can read more about that on Our Story. We are working towards exciting evolution of our sustainable packaging program as well--stay tuned for updates!
