Labdoor helps consumers buy safe and effective dietary supplements. We test every product in an FDA-registered lab (79% of supplements fail testing), and publish the results, including grades and rankings, on Labdoor.com.
This makes Labdoor a destination site when shopping for supplements, earning organic traffic (400K MAU, $0 paid acquisition) and driving sales through Labdoor's marketplace ($450K/month GMV, $100K/month revenue).

But the gummy-bear vitamins still earned an overall A-grade for having the amount of vitamins and minerals a person needs to compensate for nutrient deficiencies that affect hair growth, said Labdoor.

Unlike prescription drugs the FDA does not inspect vitamins before they hit the market. Neil Thanedar, LabDoor CEO, provides independent product safety research and grading to help consumers learn what's really inside their vitamins.

The office accused four of the country's biggest retail stores of selling herbal products that in many cases were contaminated or did not contain any of the herb listed on the label.
Millions of Americans take fish oil supplements to promote heart and vascular health. But a new analysis suggests that some consumers may not always get what they are paying for. The new research, carried out by a testing company called LabDoor, analyzed 30 top-selling fish oil supplements for levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a group of compounds with anti-inflammatory effects.
Eventually, he envisions the LabDoor seal of approval as something sought by manufacturers who want to prove the purity of their products. For that to happen, though, consumers have to care about what’s in the products they use every day. LabDoor might be the company to help facilitate that.
The goal, Thanedar says, is to shine a light on all those questionable ingredients and eventually encourage manufacturers to be more transparent. Maybe the next time you and your biceps are shopping for protein powder, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting.
