Soil Association Certification
The Soil Association is the UK's leading campaigning and certification organization for organic - providing certification to all sectors of the market including food, farms, textiles, health and beauty care, restaurants and even timber. Founded in 1946, their mission has always been to promote organic agriculture as a sustainable alternative to intensive farming methods, campaigning for safer, healthier produce and production methods.
The Soil Association is a unique certification organization in that it has standards specific to health and beauty products. These standards were launched in 2002 and strictly govern the ingredients and processes that can be used in the production of organic products. This is why Bentley Organic stands by the Soil Association and its logo can be found on their products as a guarantee of their integrity - a logo that is recognized and trusted by consumers.
The standards state that organic health and beauty products should be fit for their purpose, have as high as possible proportion of organic ingredients and should not be harmful to human health and the environment in manufacture and in use. Furthermore, they require products to be comprehensively labeled to give clear and accurate information, so that consumers can make an informed choice about what they are buying.
In addition, Soil Association certification means that their products are:
- Not tested on animals and do not contain ingredients of animal origin
- Parabens free
- GMO free
- Do not contain SLS or SLES
- Free from petro-chemicals
About Bentley Organic
Bentley Organic was launched in the UK in 2006, starting with a small range of organic soap products. The brand has been received with great success and continues to grow, now producing body care, hair care, baby care and a unique range of household cleaning products.
Their mission is to provide affordable alternatives to premium priced uncertified competitors, making organic lifestyle choices accessible to a wider market. To do so, they stand by two key philosophies; firstly that all products are Soil Association certified as a guarantee to the consumers of their organic integrity. And secondly that they are ‘Of the Earth, not costing the Earth’, as an integrated manufacturer and supplier they are able to offer their customers a better value product – they believe organic products should be reasonably, not premium, priced.
Bentley Organic is a subsidiary of Thos. Bentley & Son Ltd, that was established in the 1800's making soap for the textile industry. The organization diversified their offering by creating soap-based products suitable for other markets and today the largest subsidiary, Stephenson Group Ltd, is one of the world’s leading specialty soap base producers, exporting product throughout the world. The business is still run from the same site in Leeds (West Yorkshire, England) and continues to expand on its experience and develop new skills, now focusing on using green chemistry to create innovative new products that provide safer alternatives for the individual and the environment.
In 2000 – and then again in 2007 – the company was proud to achieve the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK's most prestigious award for business performance. Furthermore, they are the only soap making plant in the world to have both the Soil Association certification and the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard.
