Earth Mama Angel Baby Announces First Product Manufactured In US To New NSF/ANSI Organic Ingredients Standard For Personal Care Products
March 12, 2010 – Clackamas, OR – Earth Mama Angel Baby announces today that Angel Baby® Lotion is the first product manufactured in the US to be certified to the new NSF/ANSI 305 American National Standard for personal care products made with organic ingredients. The NSF/ANSI 305 standard is the first, and only, American National Standard to define organic labeling and marketing requirements that contain organic ingredients.
“Earth Mama Angel Baby has always been an industry leader in product safety, and to have the honor of being the first product manufactured in the US to the most credible standard for organic personal care products makes us very proud,” said Melinda Olson, founder of Earth Mama Angel Baby.
“The USDA NOP has always been the highest standard,” explains Olson, “but the original standard was developed for food products and doesn’t take in to account the chemistry required for some personal care products. The new NSF/ANSI 305 certification is a specialized standard for personal care products, such as lotions and shampoos.”
Earth Mama Angel Baby is one of a handful of companies recommended by the Organic Consumer’s Association as an “honest organic brand.” They are also the only pregnancy/infant personal care company with an entire product line that rates zero for toxins by Skin Deep, the database that rates toxins in cosmetics and personal care products. Earth Mama Angel Baby products are certified by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
“Obviously products like shampoo and lotion are not food products,” said Olson. “And there are problems with using that standard to formulate these types of products. The NSF/ANSI standard now addresses those issues and provides parents with environmentally friendly alternatives.”
