Natural Products Association


It has been estimated that women use nine personal care products every day.*

 


Why is this important?
Because on average, these products contain 126 unique chemicals and up to 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed.  This means you can absorb up to 2kg of chemicals every year. *

What sort of chemicals? 
Synthetic chemical including:
►Carcinogens
►Endocrine disruptors - Reproductive toxins
►Pesticides

This can be a rather alarming statistic but the good news is this: the science of skincare has advanced to the point where the benefits of natural ingredients have been unlocked and can have profoundly effective results on your skin.

But with so many skincare brands claiming to be natural, how can you tell - and trust - what is truly natural or not?

Natural Products Association™ (NPA) certification means you can trust that every ingredient in our product is deemed natural, sustainable and safe.

The prestigious and strict NPA Certification is only given after an intensive process to ensure every ingredient in every single product in the Comvita® skincare range is deemed natural, safe to use, environmentally responsible and sustainable.

You can be sure no synthetic chemical extraction methods, harmful processing aids or preservatives have been used.

Each ingredient has been independently examined and checked to ensure only approved natural extraction methods have been used and that no harmful processing aids or preservatives are involved.  The ingredient list on the packaging has been studied to make sure that what it says is in the product is actually in the product and that no ingredients with any suspected health concerns have been used.

Certification is the only way you can guarantee you’re using truly natural skincare.

Yes, that’s right – in order to be able to use the NPA seal on Comvita® skincare products, each ingredient has been totally scrutinized and tracked back through the supply chain.  This is no mean feat when you consider a product such as the Daily Moisturiser with SPF15  has 19 ingredients alone.

The NPA seal is your guarantee that the products you are choosing for yourself and your family are truly natural. So look for the seal. 
 


This seal indicates a product is certified by NPA as truly natural, based on the ingredients and processes that are used to make it.


The seal will begin to appear on all of Comvita®’s skincare products as we gain certification.
