The organic industry in the USA is celebrating a groundbreaking certification path for personal care products, the NSF/ANSI Standard 305 - the Personal Care Products Containing Organic Ingredients label. Industry leaders gathered at the Natural Products Expo West to see the first personal care products in the USA to achieve certification. The agreement between QAI and NaTrue allows companies certified to NSF/ANSI 305 in the USA to simultaneously achieve NaTrue certification in the EU.
American National Standard NSF/ANSI 305 enables companies to be certified and use the "Contains Organic Ingredients" designation for products with organic content of 70 % or more while meeting strict requirements regarding organic ingredients, materials, processes and production specifications. So far, QAI has certified five companies to the new standard: Weleda, Earth Mama Angel Baby, Naturally Nova Scotia, Amala brand (Primavera), and Trademark Cosmetics, according to PR Newswire. California-based Quality Assurance International was founded in 1989. Accredited by multiple organizations, QAI verifies organic integrity at each link of the supply chain. QAI remains dedicated to fostering sustainable agriculture and a healthier planet while providing educational outreach to the organic community and consumers.
