Look for the USDA Organic seal. This seal ensures that 95%+ of the ingredients are agricultural products that meet the strict USDA National Organic Program production, processing, manufacturing and handling standards. The remaining ingredients must be on the USDA National List of approved nonagricultural substances. Finally, the products must be certified by USDA-accredited state and private certification organizations. Becoming certified and using the world’s finest ingredients comes with a price tag, an investment in your healthiest possible skin.
#MPWR proudly lists every ingredient in our products – hiding nothing – so you can examine them for yourself. #MPWR uses the finest agricultural ingredients that the USDA permits in its certified organic food – the same standards as those for products we eat.
Products which bear this seal on packaging certify that: 1) the manufacturer adheres to the Celiac Support Association (CSA) standards- free of wheat, barley, rye and common oats, their crosses and derivatives in product, processing and packaging; or 2) that innovative products have been crafted to remove the gluten from the finished product. Verifiable testing must confirm no detectable gluten using the most appropriate analysis for the product.
The Leaping Bunny Logo shows that a cosmetic or personal care company adheres to the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, and is a voluntary pledge that companies make to not test on animals during any stage of production development. This logo represents a stringent non-animal testing international standard. A company is authorized to use the symbol when they take a pledge that none of it’s products or their suppliers use animal testing at any phase in development and production, as well as commit to not doing so in the future.
Why are Cruelty-Free and Vegan Certified important? We think the importance is the scientifically-studied hormonal and other health implications animal by-products used as ingredients in today’s cosmetic and skin care products. Elastin?- a protein from the neck ligaments and aortas of cows. Arachidonic Acid (found in rash lotions)?- from livers and brains. We prefer aloe vera for rashes…and much more.
