This page contains some of the more frequently asked questions. The questions have been divided broadly based on their category. Individual product questions may be seen on the individual product pages under Q&A.
Q. How old is the company?
A: The company was formed in April of 2009. The first products were launched in July of 2010.
Q: What is the difference between Natural and Organic Products?
A: The definition of a Natural product can be quite vague in the consumer product industry and differ from company to company. Natural products in our mind are products that are either directly extracted from plant sources (oils, flours, flowers etc.), or derived with minor processing (Olivem 1000 etc). Our definition of natural products is much more stringent than many other companies who simply claim that every ingredient including sulphates are naturally derived.
Organic products only gain an organic certification after meeting very strict guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Organic products take the claim of natural products to another level.
Q: Are all Nature Certified products organic?
A: We strive to make our core products organic. Where certification is challenging because the ingredients are not available in their organic state, we then strive for a completely natural product.
Q: Is your core product line only for children?
A: Our products are for all age groups from the teeny-tiny ones to the oldie-goldie ones. Our intention for saying "baby and child" on our products is that they have been formulated with babies and children in mind. We believe, if its good enough for them, then its good enough for anyone!
Q: What are some of the new products you are working on?
A: We are currently working on several new products to meet your Organic and completely natural needs! A line of premium body butters, including a diaper rash treatment, and mommy stretch mark butter to name a few. And most exciting for us and you, is an all natural SPF sunscreen.
