Why We Use Manufacture Dates vs. Expiration Dates

A dietary supplement company may use either the date of expiration or of manufacture. Either is acceptable for cGMP compliance.

Doctor Wilson’s Original Formulations has chosen to use the more precise “Manufactured On Date” on product labels. The recommended shelf life for most of our products is 3 years from the manufacture date. Supplements containing probiotics (Squeaky Clean) have a recommended 2-year shelf life.
