What is USDA Organic Certification?

icon 01 2

USDA CERTIFIED

USDA ORGANIC certification is a qualification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products including personal health care products. 

 

 

Felicity Organics uses USDA Certified ingredients in its Skincare products. The USDA was selected due to its strictest regulations that must meet the NOP (USDA’s National Organic Program) standards.  These standards were established to provide uniformity across various industries so that each could hold to the standards as established as uniform.   These standards are included on the middle column to the right.  

 

As will be detailed later under the “Organic” designation, Felicity Organics Hormone Balancing Cream with USP Micronized Progesterone and Nano-Emulsified CBD contains more than 95% organic ingredients.  Although our CBD ingredient also meets organic content, it has not as of yet certified.  Therefore we cannot claim our cream is 100% organic.  

The Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) and the National Organic Program (NOP) assure consumers that the organic agricultural products they purchase are produced, processed, and certified to consistent national organic standards.

The labeling requirements of the NOP apply to raw, fresh products and processed products that contain organic agricultural ingredients. Agricultural products that are sold, labelled, or represented as organic must be produced and processed in accordance with the NOP standards:​

 

 

 

  • 100% Organic—Foods bearing this label are made with 100% organic ingredients* and may display the USDA ORGANIC seal. 

  • Organic—These products contain at least 95–99% organic ingredients (by weight). The remaining ingredients are not available organically but have been approved by the NOP. These products may display the USDA ORGANIC seal.

  • Made with Organic Ingredients—Food packaging that reads “Made With Organic Ingredients” must contain 70–94% organic ingredients. These products will not bear the USDA ORGANIC seal; instead, they may list up to three ingredients on the front of the packaging.

  • Other—Products with less than 70% organic ingredients may only list organic ingredients on the information panel of the packaging. These products will not bear the USDA ORGANIC seal.
