Organically grown ingredients means no chemicals and no pesticides which translates in less poisons entering our bodies, what's not good about that?
Many believe because the ingredients are
organically grown the soaps won't lather the same or the body oils won't do their job compared to the ones made with low quality vegetable ingredients, artificial ingredients or petrochemicals, but this is nothing but a myth. The properties of an oil won't change for the worse by being grown and produced without the use of toxic chemicals, totally the opposite. The less harmful chemicals and pesticides a crop receives the healthier the produce is. In terms of your health, knowing that 80% of what we rub on our skin is absorbed into our organs faster in many cases than if it's ingested, using skin care products made with
organically grown ingredients reduces dramatically our chances to develop health problems, skin conditions and many types of cancer.
99% of the ingredients we use in the manufacture of By Valenti Organics products are
organically grown and only 1% are certified to be natural or wildcrafted without the use of any chemicals.
At By Valenti Organics we are proud to create luxurious skin care products using what nature has to offer rather than using petroleum derived ingredients or low quality ingredients. We want our products to be healthy and beneficial for you, your family and the environment.
USDA Organic Definition...
The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) provides
the legal foundation for the organic standards in the USA, defining 3 levels of
certification. A product is classified based on the total percentage by weight
or volume, of its organic ingredients, without counting water or salt. Water and
Salt according to the NOP are not counted as part of the total weight/volume of
a product when it's added to the formulation.
According to the USDA NOP, these are the three
certifications for organic:
All ingredients must be certified organic. Products that fall under this category may say “100% Organic” or “Organic”, may use NOP seal on the label (if certified and fees are paid), may make percentage claim.
95% of product must be manufactured using certified organic ingredients by weight. Products that fall under this category may say “Organic” on the product label, may use NOP seal on the label (if certified and fees are paid), may make a percentage statement.
Made with Organic...
This applies to products that contain a minimum of 70% by weight of certified organic ingredients but less than 95%. Products that fall under this category may list up to 3 ingredients or categories on the label, may make a percentage statement, cannot use NOP seal on the label.
According to the USDA:
"All products that are sold, labeled, or represented
as organic must meet all requirements in the USDA
organic regulations. Products must be certified organic
by a USDA-accredited certifying agent. The USDA
organic regulations ensure that organically labeled
products meet consistent national standards."
"Exceptions. Operations whose gross agricultural
income from organic sales is less than $5,000 do not
need to be certified in order to sell, label, or represent
their products as organic. These operations also do not
need to prepare an organic systems plan. However,
they must still comply with all other USDA organic
regulations. Exempt operations may use the word
“organic,” but may not use the USDA organic seal on
their products. Retail food establishments that sell
organically produced agricultural products do not
need to be certified."
