Always Reading Labels
Each time I go to the grocery store, drug store, beauty counter at the department store, or anywhere, I pick up the bottle of product and read the label. I am specifically looking for good things and hoping not to find bad things. I also like little certification icons like Cruelty Free and USDA Organic and The Soil Association. This all takes work, but it is worth it because I care what goes on my skin. But wouldn’t it be easier if I could just look for ONE logo and knew it meant no toxic or questionable ingredients? Well now there is the partnership between Made Safe and NYR Organic and it is very exciting. It was just announced that NYR Organic now has the MADE SAFE® certification on some of my favorite products… with more to come.
What is Made Safe?
Simply, MADE SAFE® fills the void and gives a seal of approval for products, after ensuring that they do not have any toxic ingredients. They follow the precautionary principal. If it isn’t safe or there is any question about its safety, it isn’t allowed. This is, of course, totally opposite of the current U.S. model which allows anything to be used until it is proven harmful, because the beauty industry is told to just regulate itself.
Made Safe and NYR Organic
Of course Neal’s Yard Remedies and MADE SAFE® are a perfect partnership. Neal’s Yard Remedies (and its social sales channel in the USA, NYR Organic) already uses the precautionary principle and has a big list of No Ingredients that are never used in our products. I love reading the “Our Products” page on my NYR Organic Independent Consultant website. That’s one of the things that won me over in the first place when I was looking into becoming a consultant.
MADE SAFE® has already certified the following products:
- Frankincense Intense™ Cream
- Frankincense Intense™ Eye Cream
- Frankincense Intense™ Concentrate
- Frankincense Intense™ Lift Serum
- Wild Rose Beauty Balm
As a consumer, I am so happy that Made Safe exists. As an Independent Consultant with NYR Organic, I am so happy to know that we are have these products certified and that we will continue to do more.
UPDATE: Now even more products are certified Made Safe!
- Lavender & Aloe Vera Deodorant
- Lemon & Coriander Deodorant
- Roll on Deodorant Peppermint and Lime
- Roll on Deodorant Rose and Geranium
