As the FIRST personal care products in the US to be Certified Organic under the USDA National Organic Program (NOP), Nourish Organic pioneered a completely new category of personal care: products formulated with organic food-grade ingredients, thereby defining TRUE organic product integrity in the health and beauty industry.
Products that contain Certified Organic ingredients sustainably grown by organic farmers without the use of pesticides, herbicides, GMOs, and harmful chemicals, and verified by an independent third-party certification program to ensure the highest standards for ecological and social sustainability are met.
Being first wasn't necessarily the company's goal, but it was an important achievement. It meant that the same strict guidelines and standards that certify organic foods were now available in formulating skincare, body care and beauty products, ensuring the highest quality of safe, clean ingredients to nourish skin without the hidden harmful ingredients.
And organic certification guarantees that our products keep all harmful ingredients out from the very beginning—from seed and soil, to shelf. They never have or never will contain parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, artificial fragrances or synthetic preservatives (including phenoxyethanol), silicones, propylene glycol, mineral oils, sulfates, synthetic dyes, triclosan, PEGs, EDTA, or any harsh or harmful chemicals.
And because Certified Organic products use naturally grown ingredients that are free from toxic pesticides and fertilizers, they don't leave a harmful footprint on our planet, particularly the soil, water, and air.
This is Clean Skincare, the Way Nature Intended.
OUR INDEPENDENT CERTIFICATIONS
USDA Organic Certification is the same standard consumers trust to certify their organic food.

NSF Certification means that products must contains at least 70 percent certified organic ingredients.
