CRITERIA

To protect and equip consumers to maximize their well being, the NATURAL AWARDS program endorses the Natural Standard for both Food Product Manufacturing and and Certification for Personal Care Products. This a set of guidelines we will use for the awards program that dictate whether a product can be deemed truly "natural." The standard also encompasses all cosmetic personal care products regulated and defined by the FDA.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Natural Awards support standards set to raise the bar for the public good and encourage endorsements from other food or packaging grade certifying organizations along with proper safety regulations defined by governing bodies such as the FDA.

The Natural Awards Program is in itself independent and not affiliated with any one trade show or event however, we the judges agree with the essence and spirit of the Natural Products Association (NPA) Natural Standard*

The NPA Natural Standard is based on natural ingredients, safety, responsibility and sustainability.

  • Natural Ingredients: A product labeled "natural" should be made up of only, or at least almost only, natural ingredients and be manufactured with appropriate processes to maintain ingredient purity.
  • Safety: A product labeled "natural" should avoid any ingredient with a suspected human health risk.
  • Responsibility: A product labeled "natural" should use no animal testing in its development.
  • Sustainability: A product labeled "natural" should use biodegradable ingredients and the most environmentally sensitive packaging.

Under the Natural Standard for Personal Care Products, allowed ingredients come from or are made from a renewable resource found in nature (flora, fauna, mineral), with absolutely no petroleum compounds.

For each ingredient, the substance must be listed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA when used in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and contain no residues of heavy metals or other contaminants in excess of tolerances set by the FDA or the EPA or has been reviewed using criteria in this standard. NPA has developed the NPA Illustrative List as a reference document for the NPA Natural Standard and Certification Program.

NOTES

* You are not required to be an exhibitor nor a member of any association or organization to enter. You just have to have received an entry code proving you were nominated. Exhibiting or selling a new product at a trade show, farmers market or store display is not a requirement for participation but it can help you get additional exposure. Many companies that enter into awards program do so to better promote their latest launch and being nominated can help get new product reviews and article write-ups.

This is an independent awards program and is not affiliated with any industry association or trade show.
