Frequently Asked Questions

About our Products

No, all our products are made using organically grown, natural ingredients and in some, lab made ingredients from natural ingredients which are considered safe and have been widely tested. We don't use any FD&C colorants (which are derived from petroleum), we don't use any petroleum derived chemicals, we don't use harmful synthetic ingredients, we don't use artificial fragrances, parabens, sulfates or synthetic petroelum derived preservatives ever.
No we are not. Even though we're a Peanuts Free facility, we do use nut derived oils, like almond, macadamia, and others in the production of some of our products.
Yes. We do not use peanut oil or any other peanut by-products in the making of our products.
Our products are processed on equipment that also processes products that may contain tree nuts, soy and wheat. We take the manufacturing of our products very seriously, to ensure not only freshness but quality. To prevent cross-contamination in our lab and during the manufacturing process, each batch of product is manufactured individually and separately from each other in sterilized equipment at different scheduling times. Consumers with ingredient allergies and sensitivities must read the ingredients list carefully.
No, we don't use any animal fat, lard or tallow in our formulations, only vegetable oils are used in the making of our soaps, bath and body products, we love animals! Researches have shown soaps and skin care products made with tallow or any animal fat can be harsh on sensitive skins. They are also known to clog your pores making your skin more prone to acne infections and are responsible for premature aging.
No, we don't. We're an animal friendly company for real. We don't test on animals and don't buy ingredients that are tested on animals, period. We're Certified Cruelty Free by the Leaping Bunny Program and we have signed the HSUS Humane Cosmetics Act H.R. 4148 for the #BeCrueltyFree Campaign
No, we don't. When we say we are animal friendly and that we don't test on animals we mean it! China requires mandatory animal testing to all cosmetic companies wanting to sell their products in their market. So far we have denied 5 times the selling of our products in China because we don't agree with animal testing and we won't allow any company, government agency or country to do animal testing on our behalf.
By Valenti Organics is certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics' (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program. All our products are cruelty free and the majority are vegan. We only use botanicals and vegetable oils from sustainable producers. Although we do use organically sourced beeswax and raw honey in some of our products.
This is a question we get a lot, so despite the controversial answer we decided to put it up here. The reason we don't endorse nor support PETA is because PETA's "humane" philosophy of killing household pets is against our Founder's animal activist efforts. PETA although can do good in terms of protecting or enforcing the protection of wildlife does a really lame and cruel job when it comes to household pets. With a known killing rate of over 95% of all the household pets (cats, dogs and other small creatures) they receive, the highest killing rate of all the animal shelters in the US, PETA is best known as the concentration camp for household pets. Our Founder has raised money for non-killing animal shelters and sanctuaries, has promoted and helped in raise money for charities where furry neglected friends were saved, cared for, and found good loving homes, she's saved hundreds of animals from shelters, gave them all a wonderful lives, volunteers at the Michigan Humane Society and won't endorse a self called animal activist organization who considers "humane" putting down over 95% of the household pets surrendered or that they receive every year. Loving pet owners whom for circumstances of life could no longer care for their pets, believed and trusted PETA would relocate their beloved furry friends into other loving and welcoming homes, just to find out they were killed hours after being surrendered. Also PETA does not remove from their list of "certified cruelty free" companies that sell in China even though they know China requires mandatory animal testing from all cosmetic companies wanting to sell in their country. By Valenti Organics won't endorse nor approve this philosophy, nor we will ever display any of PETA's logos to prove we are an animal friendly, cruelty free company. By Valenti Organics is Certified Cruelty Free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics' (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program, an organization that takes very seriously their job of protecting our furry friends.
Yes, it's the only way to make true soap. That's how it's being done for centuries and how the best and true soaps are still made today. The lye (Sodium Hydroxide) reacts with the oils or fats creating a chemical reaction called Saponification. The lye becomes inactive and what remains is pure soap. During the Saponification process a secondary natural compound is created, Glycerin, which amounts for about 25% of the soap. All the vegetable glycerin produced during the Saponification process is retained in the soap, we don't remove it at all, that's why our soaps are also moisturizing. Learn more about how soaps are made by reading Is it a Soap or a Detergent Bar?
No, they are not. Every oil and every ingredient have different properties that are combined when the soap is produced and that determines what kind of soap the soap maker will end up with. Knowing what oils work best together in what proportions is the key for a really good handmade soap. Combine that process with only high quality organically grown vegetable ingredients and the best soap is born. There are thousands of homemade soaps out there with very poor quality ingredients that result in a very poor quality bar of soap that won't live up to your expectations. Our soaps not only have grade "A" quality ingredients but our formulas maximize the benefits of each one of our ingredients resulting in a wonderful bar of soap that will not only nourish your skin but will clean as well as energize your spirit.
True Castile Soap, a soap that's hundreds of years old, originally produced in the region of Castilla in Spain, is made with only 3 ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil (not the one you would buy at the grocery store), Sodium or Potassium Hydroxide (one or the other depending if the soap is solid or liquid) and Water. What sets this soap apart from the rest is not only the simple ingredients and high quality (but expensive) olive oil, but the method to manufacture this soap, which renders the mildest soap suitable for everyone, including newborns, that's biodegradable and good for the environment. For those of us who were lucky enough to have family members that knew the secret process to manufacture this soap, that has being passed down generation after generation, we guard it very carefully. Because the high price of the extra virgin olive oil used to manufacture this soap, and because of the difficulty in manufacturing it, many soap makers have "cheapened out" their products, and have added inexpensive oils like coconut and palm oil, in some cases eliminating the olive oil all together, to simplify the manufacturing process, rendering an inexpensive soap that can also clean your entire home, deceiving consumers in the process thinking they're buying a real authentic Castile Soap. Although most of the fake castile soaps sold by renowned manufacturers in the US and abroad, aren't bad, they just aren't and cannot be considered True Castile Soaps, but just vegetable soaps. When we claim we're the only manufacturers of the True and Original Castile Soap in the US, is because we follow the original secret process to produce this soap, and because we don't use any of the easily saponifiable inexpensive oils other soap makers use, but only the best, high quality extra virgin olive oil imported from Spain.
No, we don't use any peanut butter or oil in the making of any of our products, but that doesn't mean the manufacturers of the oils we use don't process peanuts in the same facilities they process their other oils. If you would like a list of our oil manufacturers to check for peanut traces please contact us.
As much as we love bright and inviting colors we don't use FD&C Colorants, Dyes or any other artificial colorants. FD&C Colorants are all artificial colorants derived from petroleum and tar. Many of them have an indefinite array of side effects from hyperactivity and inattentiveness in children, asthma, rashes and ever cancer, not mentioning by using FD&C Colorants we are polluting the environment even further. At By Valenti Organics we believe in making products that are safe for your skin and that are innocuous for the environment, that won't pollute bodies of water. All our products are colored by the ingredients they contain.
Yes. All our products are formulated with natural never artificial ingredients, but we recommend doing a test in a small area before using any of our products in case of food or botanical allergies are suspected. Although any of our products can be used on children we recommend the use of our Babies & Kids products as they are specifically formulated for infants & children.
Although all the ingredients we use are natural and generally safe for all skin types, certain allergic reactions may occur if the individual is sensitive to certain botanicals. If you have extremely sensitive skin do a test in a small area of your body before fully using any of our products. All our products offer a complete list of ingredients. If there is anything you are sensitive to and would like to avoid it verify such ingredient isn't listed in the ingredients list of that particular product.
We became USDA Certified Organic by the Global Organic Alliance, Inc. on March 2014. On September 2015, we decided not to renew our organic certification due to the fact current USDA standards do not work for cosmetic manufacturers in providing safety assurance to consumers. You can read our public announcement by following this link By Valenti Organics won't renew its USDA Organic Certification.
Products like soaps and solid shampoos that are sold unwrapped only prove they contain tons of preservatives, petrochemicals and artificial ingredients. A truly natural product needs to be protected from the environment as much as possible. Just the air we breath oxidizes the natural ingredients of any product, tremendously reducing its shelf life, not mentioning you wouldn't want to use a product in your intimate areas that everyone has touched or sneezed on. Bacteria is transferred and spread by touch and many of the most severe cases of acne are the result of transferred bacteria. By wrapping and bottling our products we are not only protecting you from bacterial contamination, we are also ensuring our products arrive fresh to you door.
By just visiting the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Safety Database the most comprehensive and complete safety cosmetics database in the USA. All our products and ingredients are rated based on safety. When we claim our products ARE SAFE is because they ARE.
Freschezza in Italian means Freshness, which is our unique way to present the expiration date on all our products. Inside this Freschezza symbol you'll find the date until the product can be used, when is most effective. Since we don't use any artificial preservatives, the natural ingredients contained in the products have a peak of freshness where they are most effective and perform better. Using the product within the Freschezza period means you're taking advantage of all the power of the fresh ingredients it contains. This doesn't mean using the product 1-2 months after the Freschezza period is bad, is just that the natural ingredients contained in the product are not as fresh anymore and might not be as effective. With this method you'll always find our fresh products in the shelves of your favorite stores.
The PAO (Period-After-Opening) symbol, also known as the open jar expiration date, identifies the number of months a product can be used AFTER it has been opened. This labeling requirement was passed into law by the E.U. (European Union) in 2003. This also means the products with this marking not bearing any expiration date are heavily charged with artificial preservatives as products may remain on store shelves for very long periods of time. Some of our products already contain the PAO symbol, allowing the product to be used 3-6-9-12 months after opening. The PAO symbol on these products is usually found next to our Freschezza symbol with its respective expiration date.
