What The Label Really Says

Labels you can trust:

Biodynamic / Demeter Certification Biodynamic refers to a holistic approach to farming and agriculture, and means that no synthetic chemicals or pesticides are used in the soil and processing. This goes beyond organic to include processes that are self sustaining and in line with natural resources and cycles. The Demeter International Association and Certification is an international organization based in Berlin, Germany and growing in adoption. This is a very strict certification and requires annual renewal.

USDA Organic Certified The Certified USDA Organic symbol is one of the most trusted labels, but it's important to know the USDA only oversees farm-raised ingredients and food products. Because beauty product ingredients contain many ingredients that do not fall under this category, it’s important to note that plant-derived ingredients and essential oils in cosmetic formulations are NOT regulated.
