One of the best things about purchasing USDA Certified Organic skin care is what you DON'T get in your products!
Organic certification provides you with transparency, accountability and a guarantee:
- that the product ingredients were produced without the use of toxic pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), sewage sludge, or irradiation
- that assures you that your skincare products are free of the harsh synthetic chemicals often used in the skincare industry
- that the raw ingredients and finished products are handled, packaged, and distributed according to the rules of USDA Organic Certification without risk of contamination
By using organic skin care products, you are helping to minimize your environmental impact and support the sustainability of our environment. Organically products are more eco-friendly.
Organic farming is also better for wildlife. It results in lower pollution from pesticides and fertilizers, produces less carbon dioxide and less toxic waste, and do a lot less damage to the soil, water, and air.
Our customer base includes the growing ranks of health-conscious people who prefer natural and organic skincare products to those made with artificial, synthetic ingredients.
Unfortunately, there is a great deal of confusion over the labels on personal care products.
The term "Organic" is often used as a marketing hype to entice consumers looking for more natural products for their families. The word “organic” should not be used unless the product ingredients, as well as the manufacturing process, are certified as organic by a USDA-recognized certifying agency.
If a company claims to sell "organic" products, ask to see their organic certification.
Since we believe that what you put on your body is as important as what you put into your body, Organic Certification is something that we take very seriously. We have been a USDA certified manufacturer since 2010.
Organic certification is the only way you can be sure that a company's product truly complies with organic standards.
Organic certification reinforces our commitment to quality, transparency, and totally natural.
