What Constitutes “Natural” or “Organic” in the Absence of a Regulated Definition

What Constitutes “Natural” or “Organic” in the Absence of a Regulated Definition

While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that products be properly labeled and that ingredients be “generally recognized as safe” when used as directed, it doesn’t approve cosmetics or other personal care products directly. Nor does the FDA define or regulate terms like “organic” or “natural.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the term organic only when it relates to agricultural ingredient marketing. Join us as we discover and understand key points of difference between a Natural and Synthetic formula.
