To Avalon Organics, honoring the body with Consciousness in Cosmetics is a guiding principle in their continuous journey to make safe, natural and effective products. The road from 1994 to today has been exciting and meaningful. But 2012 marked their most profoundly rewarding period, as Avalon Organics announced the total reformulation of the brand so that every product they make could be certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard for Personal Care Products Containing Organic Ingredients or the USDA National Organic Program. As they continue their journey, Avalon Organics is grateful for the privilege of sharing their body care formulas with you.

Consciousness in Cosmetics
The skin is the largest organ of the body -- a delicate shield of protection covering us from head to toe. Much of what we put on our skin is absorbed directly into our body. For this reason, the products we apply to our skin must be truly clean and pure, natural and organic, made from ingredients that are effective and safe.
Consciousness in Cosmetics is the guiding principle behind everything they do at Avalon Organics. It reflects their commitment to creating an extraordinary, unprecedented range of new and reformulated products that are inherently pure and safe, while expanding the efficacy and vibrantly healthy benefits of natural body care. It is their mission and their passion.
Avalon Organics is committed to reducing their ecological footprint to help preserve the planet, now and for future generations. Recognizing the need to be good stewards of all natural resources, Avalon Organics is dedicated to reducing, reusing and recycling across all areas of their business and they continuously look for new ways to help protect they planet, from the field to the factory to the shelf.
Packaging Choices. Avalon Organics uses environmentally friendly packaging and has a corporate initiative to continually seek out opportunities to further their sustainability and reduce their environmental impact. All of their packaging is recyclable and Avalon Organics deliberately seeks out only containers made from materials that is readily accepted by most curbside recycling programs. A majority of their plastic bottles are made from 100% post consumer resin and Avalon Organics strives to maximize the use of post consumer material in all of their containers. This creates a second use for millions of plastic bottles annually that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Avalon Organics unit cartons are made with 80% post consumer material and the paperboard is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, assuring that only responsibly sourced virgin and recycled fiber is used in its creation.
Please help Avalon Organics reduce landfill space and save precious resources by recycling all of your household packaging whenever possible. Together we can create a more sustainable future.
Carbon Footprint. Avalon Organics incessantly looks for new ways to reduce their environmental impact. Whenever possible, Avalon Organics sources packaging components and ingredients locally to reduce the carbon cost of transportation. Simple choices, like sourcing their containers from suppliers near their California manufacturing facility (rather than from Asia as so many personal care manufacturers do) can make a great difference in reducing carbon emissions.
Avalon Organics strives to run their business in a manner that promotes long-term solutions to environmental problems, maintains the integrity of natural ecosystems, and conserves the quality of air, water, and soil for our children's children.
Driven by their mission of Consciousness in Cosmetics and their commitment to organic agriculture and formula transparency, in 2012 Avalon Organics brand made the single most important decision since their founding in 1994: they chose to have all Avalon Organics products become certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard for Personal Care Products Containing Organic Ingredients.
The NSF/ANSI 305 is an American National Standard written specifically for personal care products containing organic ingredients. Since it is not a food standard, it recognizes and allows certain safe processes and ingredients that are critical and unique to personal care product effectiveness.
The standard establishes the materials, processes, production criteria, conditions and labeling claims for personal care products claiming to "contain organic content". To be certified, all formulas must contain a minimum of 70% organic content. All other ingredients may not be available in organic form and must be evaluated and approved by an independent scientific panel to minimize environmental impact during production and ensure safety for the product user.
Avalon Organics products are certified to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard by Quality Assurance International (QAI). QAI is an independent third party certifying agency that NSF has entrusted to review applications and grant certification in accordance with the criteria established under the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard. When a personal care product features the NSF logo on its label, it demonstrates to consumers that it has been independently evaluated to meet the standard requirements.
This commitment to the NSF/ANSI 305 Standard is the next chapter in Avalon Organics journey to provide you with personal care products that are inherently pure, safe, effective and conscious of the greater good. Avalon Organics hopes you will join them on their journey.
Avalon Organics is humbled by a profound respect for all living beings and therefore never tests their products on animals or allow their ingredient suppliers to test their ingredients on animals. Avalon Organics commitment to the Leaping Bunny Program, as seen by the little leaping bunny symbol on their labels, is evidence of their outward commitment to this philosophy.
The Leaping Bunny logo is an internationally recognized symbol for cruelty-free cosmetics, personal care and household products. In 1996, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). This organization created and administers the Leaping Bunny Program, a cruelty-free standard for companies producing cosmetic, personal care, and household products. The Leaping Bunny Program provides the best assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories, or suppliers.
