It’s a much more stringent certification process than we have in the US.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Organic Soap and Spa announces the reformulation of its always gentle Nature Baby Organic Shampoo. Nature Baby Shampoo contains a truly pure liquid soap derived from Certified Organic sunflower and coconut oils, resulting in a carefully formulated shampoo free of perfumes and harsh chemicals. Blended with gentle surfactants, and not detergents, that are approved by the Soil Association(UK) to provide large quantities of creamy lather. Nature Baby Shampoo contains organic glycerin and a skin conditioning ingredient derived from the palm kernel to provide a pleasant finish. Always gentle and pH balanced, the new formula is now certified organic by The Soil Association of the United Kingdom. “The Soil Association certification is important to us because the criteria for children’s and adult’s body products is much more stringent in the United Kingdom then it is in the United States. The UK allows only a few chemicals that have been tested thoroughly and proven safe, to be used in body products.
"It’s a much more stringent certification process than we have in the US," says Organic Soap and Spa owner, Joan Saez. “I’m proud to offer this product to my customers and the public, especially in light of the disturbing news concerning the chemical makeup of some popular baby products.” Johnson & Johnson has recently been targeted for including off-label ingredients which have been linked to cancer in their popular No More Tears® shampoo and other baby products (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/01/johnson-johnson-baby-sham_n_1069123.html and http://articles.nydailynews.com/2011-11-01/news/30347901_1_baby-products-johnson-s-baby-shampoo-johnson-johnson)
The new formula of the Nature Baby Organic Shampoo is always printed on each product label and published online: https://id33193.securedata.net/organicsoapandspa.com/merchantmanager/product_info.php?cPath=61_46&products_id=382
The formula, like all of Organic Soap and Spa products, is at least 85% organic, specifically, it is derived from Certified Organic sunflower and coconut oils, resulting in a carefully formulated shampoo free of perfumes and harsh chemicals, and blended with gentle surfactants, not detergents, that are approved by the Soil Association(UK). Nature Baby Organic Shampoo is completely vegetable in origin. Soil Association organic certification ensures the integrity of the products in relation to the environmental impact of their farming and the long-term sustainability of the crops. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are permitted in the growing of the crop. The same stringent controls apply in the extraction and refining of the oils from the crop, for example no bleaching or chemical distillation is permitted. The organic liquid soap base that is used contains the natural glycerin from the organic oils, something that is often chemically removed as part of the refining and distillation process, and which provides good skin feel characteristics. The new formula is available via pre-order at 888.327.4137 and online after February 1, 2012.
Organic Soap and Spa manufactures of 150 certified organic soaps and body products. All products are between 85% - 100% organic and are free from harmful chemicals, perfumes and detergents. Their new headquarters in Boulder is expected to open in February, 2012.
