Product Seals

Organic Standards

Juice Beauty formulates all products using 70 – 95%* USDA certified organic ingredients.

*One exception is Juice Beauty’s mascara which is currently under the 70% mark but we’re getting there!

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic

USDA: U.S. Department of Agriculture

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) seal may be carried on products that have 95 to 98% Organic (total organic content excluding water). These products must carry the certifying agency on the product box. Juice Beauty’s two certifying agencies for these products are noted below:
  • New Mexico Dept. of Agriculture Organic Program 4501 Indian School Rd NE Suite 100 Rm G104 Albuquerque, NM 87110
  • Agricultural Services Certified Organic PO Box 4871, Salinas, CA. 93912

COPA: California Organic Products Act

COPA is one of the most rigorous standards in the world. This shows that Juice Beauty buys the majority of our ingredients from USDA certified organic farmers. In the State of California, the California Organic Products Act of 2003 (COPA 2003) prohibits the retail sale of any cosmetic product labeled as “organic” unless that product meets the criteria of a minimum of 70% organic content EXCLUDING WATER OR FANCY NAMES FOR WATER. Any product labeled “organic” that does not meet COPA requirements cannot legally be sold in the State of California. Note that this seal (not a government seal) is used by Juice Beauty to show compliance with COPA.
GFCO: Gluten Free Certification

GFCO: Gluten Free Certification

Juice Beauty formulates without gluten ingredients and some Juice Beauty products are certified gluten free by GFCO. GFCO certification provides a certification seal that is easily identified and provides consumer assurance that the product meets strict standards for Gluten Free. The GFCO measures results by using testing methods that are accepted for gluten testing by analytical associations such as the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) and the American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC).
Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free Certification

Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free Certification

Juice Beauty is currently certified by Leaping Bunny. The Leaping Bunny Logo shows that a cosmetic or personal care company adheres to the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, and is a voluntary pledge that companies make to not test on animals during any stage of production development. This logo represents a stringent non-animal testing international standard.
PETA Cruelty-Free Certification

PETA Cruelty-Free Certification

Juice Beauty is PETA Cruelty-Free certified and our Company was recognized with a Courage in Commerce Award for reaffirming its commitment to compassion by promising that tests on animals will never be conducted for products, formulations, or ingredients anywhere in the world.

Other Product Seals

Approximately 10% organic content regulation in the EU. Brands that are claiming “certified by EcoCert” do NOT meet the legal requirements for organic in the U.S. Eco-Cert standards are based on the EU regulatory definition of “organic” which requires that the total organic content total approximately 10%. This regulation is not recognized in the United States.
Cosmetique Bio - NPA
Must contain at least 95% NATURAL (not organic) ingredients. These are not government seals. Products that are bearing these seals contain mainly natural (not organic) ingredients. Natural ingredient must be naturally derived or come from renewable resources such as plants. Products are not tested on animals and are packaged using recycled materials.
Soil Association
A UK based certifying body that awards its seal to products whose total contents are 70% certified organic and the remaining 30% ingredients are non-toxic, plant-based, GMO-free ingredients which pose no known risk to health or the environment. This regulation is not recognized in the United States.
