(Middlebury, VT): Vermont Soap revealed yet another organic first this month with the launch of their new USDA 95% organic shower gel and 95% organic hand and body foam soaps. When filled in a USDA certified facility, these silky smooth cleansing gels and foamer soaps bear the coveted USDA organic seal recognized worldwide as the gold standard for natural cosmetic products. While plenty of labels claim to be natural only to include ingredients it takes a degree in chemistry to unravel; personal care products bearing the USDA seal set the bar for safe, nontoxic and natural people and pet care.
According to Vermont Soap CEO and Formulator Larry Plesent, “It took 15 years, but we are now manufacturing USDA certified organic 95% bases for bulk and private label use.” Adding that,
“Vermont Soap was able to obtain a reinterpretation of an existing organic rule from the USDA. This small change created the opportunity to finally formulate true 95% organic soap products.”
95% organic soap products have been the Holy Grail of organic soap makers since the creation of the National Organic Program in 2002. Until recently certified organic soap products fell into the “Made With” organic category, considered by many to be the Black Sheep of the organic program. Products with this designation may not bear the seal or use the word organic on the item or company names, effectively discouraging their use.
“Vermont Soap is planning to launch under their iconic Vermont Soap brand in the coming months,” adds Mr. Plesent. “But we want to make this option available to our bulk and Private Label immediately so they can be part of this new dimension in personal care.”
Made from certified organic ingredients including coconut, olive, jojoba, shea butter, sunflower, essential oils, glycerin and aloe; Vermont Soap’s Sun Shea line of bulk bases just raised the bar for premium bath products. Click here to learn more.
