Conclusion of Our Holland & Barrett Biotin Review
Some positive elements about this product are that it is available for a reasonable price, and the manufacturer provides a 5% discount for subscriptions with free shipping. There are lots of positive reviews on the manufacturer’s website which is an encouraging sign that the product is effective for many people. However, we uncovered a number of weaknesses. It contains a variety of unnecessary ingredients that act as preservatives, fillers, and binders. The dosage instructions do not specify a preferred time of day to take these capsules. There is no assurance from the manufacturer that it is made in an FDA certified facility, that it is free form GMO ingredients, free from fillers and binders, and free from animal ingredients and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. We were also disappointed that the manufacturer does not offer any guarantee or return policy for this product. The product is made and shipped from the UK, therefore if you order from their website and want delivery outside of the UK, you will need to pay international shipping which costs around $8.80 adding significantly to the purchase price of this supplement. For all these reasons we are not able to recommend this product. Look for a better product with a reliable guarantee and return policy, that offers bulk purchase discounts and free shipping within the US.
