The largest online store of organic products, medicines, natural cosmetics, vitamins, supplements and in general everything that can be done without chemical admixtures, was founded in 1996 with the light hand of the Persian developer Ray Faray. According to various sources, at first, tinctures of St. John's wort (to relieve symptoms of depression) and products of the main brand for the production of complexes of amino acids, vitamins and dietary supplements Now Foods flew from iHerb. Over time, the iHerb assortment has grown to one and a half thousand brands, vitamins and all kinds of supplements like Garden of Life and Country Life are still at the forefront, as well as household goods, sports nutrition, an unlimited pool of cosmetics, food, the niche of children's vitamins and even food. for pets.
iHerb has been and still is held in high esteem by those who consider American drugs to be of high quality by default. Thus, most of the money flows to the company's California headquarters from China, India and Russia. It's easy to guess why our compatriots were imbued with a great and strong love for iHerb: firstly, there is a Russian version of the site with a full description of products and the ability to pay in rubles. Secondly, there is no ubiquitous "minimum cost" of delivery - the package is collected by weight. Thirdly, the delivery is quite fast, given the distance between Russia and California - about two weeks on average. Fourth, the notorious unconditional recognition of the quality of everything that is produced and sold outside the CIS. And, of course, the assortment: in terms of the quantity and variety of goods, it seemsthat Whole Foods was connected to a variety of local hypermarkets and gave the arithmetic mean. Plus, iHerb attracts advocates of ecology and peace around the world with charitable campaigns (for example, it is now donating part of the proceeds from sales to equip schools in Cambodia) and active recycling (recycling boxes and packaging from manufacturers).
The crystal clear image of the online giant is spoiled only by an aggressive advertising campaign, which implies, among other things, fake positive reviews of iHerb products. The company provides promo codes for a discount to praisers, which they share in each new post or comment on the site. The more gullible recruits buy on the site by their code, the more bonuses in the form of ten percent cashbacks will be gained by authors of positive reviews. But even this is not particularly interesting - after all, it is naive to blame giant corporations for aggressive marketing. It is curious that the recent decision of the Ulyanovsk court is not the first attempt to step on the throat of the jolly song of iHerb in Russia. In 2016, the same court ruled to block iHerb.com because products from the sanctioned lists came from the site.
While the site and its Russified version are working properly, fans will still have time to buy their favorite goods for future use. We made our way through the stream of something, just not on coconut oil and thousands of bottles with assorted vitamins and chose hits.
No matter how many brands and products the site is updated every day, iHerb remains primarily an aggregator of vegetarian, vegan and other purest vitamins, minerals and medicines. Active biohackers are lining up for Solgar's premium capsules with zinc, concentrated vitamin D3 from veteran Now Foods, life-saving collagen and - where without it - coconut oil for all occasions.
Beautigolics do not hesitate to part with cashless at the sight of rosehip oil, which, as iHerb promises, instantly restores dry and emaciated skin. They also line up for a shipment of lip balms mixed with olive oil and beeswax, collagen cream and patches with crystal powder and citrus.
Naturally, iHerb does not forget about the citizens obsessed with food. Here is peanut butter, consisting of, in fact, peanuts and cane syrup - for the ubiquitous hunters for this delicacy. Here is coconut sauce, which is a great substitute for soy. Here are low-sugar coconut bars, and a load of dark chocolate with sea salt, a generous bottle of avocado oil, and organic smoked paprika.
If iHerb is closed in Russia, do not despair: there are enough less popular analogs in the world with delivery all over the world. For example, Vitacost with more pleasant prices, but without the order tracking function, a storehouse of vitamins Vitaminworld and Pureformulas, and a website in broken Russian Luckyvitamin.>
