Who certifies the ingredients?
John Masters Organics follows the USDA certified-organic food standards. These standards are the strictest in the world. The agencies they work with directly to help certify their ingredients and products according to USDA standards are as follows: USDA Certified Organic, Oregon Tilth, California Certified Organic Farmers & Organic Crop Improvement Association.
Are their products certified organic?
At the moment the USDA organic seal is only approved for products that meet their acceptable edible food standards. New progress is being made everyday to help create a standard for the cosmetic industry. It is very important to John Masters Organics to have the seal on all of the products as soon as it is available.
Are their products tested on animals?
As John's favorite pooch Maya knows, he believes in ethical treatment for all animals. Including humans. None of the ingredients or products are tested on any animals and John Masters Organics is endorsed by PETA.
Are John Masters products Vegan?
The entire John Masters line is vegan except for the following products: Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner (contains honey), Sweet Orange & Silk Protein Styling Gel (silk proteins), Hair Pomade (beeswax), Honey & Hibiscus Hair Reconstructor (honey), Honey & Hibiscus Hair Reconstructing Shampoo (honey), and Lip Calm (beeswax).
Is the packaging recyclable?
Yes, haircare bottles are made of PET (1) plastic. This is the most recyclable plastic. Your community recycling will gladly accept it. The tubes are made of MDPE (2) plastic. This plastic is the second most recyclable. All of the amber glass used for the skincare and some of the haircare is fully recyclable. And the boxes used for the skincare are made from 100% recycled paper with 100% soy ink. They can be recycled wherever paper is accepted. All closures are made of HDPE and are often accepted for recycling. Packing "peanuts" used for shipping are made from sugar and will decompose.
Do John Masters products contain Parabens or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate?
No. John Masters Organics products are entirely free of all parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate.
What is the shelf life of the products?
All products have a shelf life of 3 years unopened, with the exception of the SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen, which has a 2 year shelf life. Once opened, they suggest using all products within 6 months.
"I am committed to partnering with local farmers who have a proven history of respect towards their environment in how they harvest their ingredients. It is truly inspirational to see how these multi-generational farms continue to employ age-old practices that produce ingredients in the most eco-sensitive way possible.
With wild-harvested ingredients, cold-pressed and steam distilled extracts, I am able to provide unparalleled care for your hair and skin. Because only the world's finest botanicals can make the world's finest products.
All of the organic ingredients I purchase are certified organic by EcoCert, Quality Assurance International, California Certified Organic Farmers, or Organic Crop Improvement Association. All are recognized by the National Organic Program for the USDA." - John Masters Organics
Why use harsh chemicals in shampoos, styling gels, skin moisturizers and soaps? They were created as cheap substitutes for organic compounds that do a better job. It's better for the body and the earth to simply return to the source: super natural botanicals.
At the moment the USDA organic seal is only approved for products that meet their acceptable edible food standards, however, new progress is being made everyday to help create a standard for the cosmetic industry. It is very important to John Masters to have the seal on all of his products as soon as it is available.

About John Masters Organics

Founded by visionary stylist John Masters in his Soho, New York salon, John Masters Organics is synonymous with premium quality, earth-friendly botanical ingredients and the ultimate in professional salon-level results. Each and every product is painstakingly crafted to let you "feel good about looking good."
A Niagara Falls, NY native, John Masters's career as a top stylist skyrocketed in the 1970s, with widespread recognition in fashion and celebrity circles. But as his dedication to organics grew in his personal life, he began to realize the perils posed by inhaling and handling harsh chemicals in the salon day after day. He became committed to creating a toxin-free salon environment, and renounced the use of toxic chemicals to open Manhattan's first "clean-air" salon to wide acclaim.
He also began extensive research and testing of essential oils, plant extracts and other botanical ingredients to produce his first organic haircare products in 1991. "Caring about yourself and caring about the earth don't have to be mutually exclusive," John says, "We only get one body and we only get one planet. Why not treat them both with the utmost care?" His singular dedication to professional salon-quality performance in products crafted with care and respect for the Earth has blossomed into a full line of incomparable hair, skin, and body products.
