Organique by Himalaya, a line of pure personal care products made by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, received the NPA Natural Standard Seal on all 20 products in the Organique by Himalaya line. The NPA Natural Standard Seal is awarded by the Natural Products Association, the nation’s largest and oldest non-profit organization dedicated to the natural products industry.

“We’re very pleased to receive this certification,” said Himalaya CEO Nabeel Manal. “Organique by Himalaya is free from over 400 synthetic ingredients and has received numerous awards and certifications of quality since we brought it to market. We’re honored to add one of our industry’s highest marks of quality to a line we’re already extremely proud of.” 

According to the Natural Products Association, the NPA Natural Standard is based on natural ingredients, safety, responsibility and sustainability. Products labeled “natural” should be made up of natural ingredients and should be manufactured with appropriate processes to maintain ingredient purity. Products should avoid any ingredient with any suspected human health risk. No animal testing should be performed in its development, and biodegradable ingredients and environmentally sensitive packaging should be used. Further, each ingredient must be listed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration and must follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) in its development.

Organique by Himalaya, which debuted in March 2009, is free from parabens, sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), phthalates, petroleum, silicones, and other synthetic ingredients that concern the marketplace. The line also contains no artificial fragrances or colors, and uses only cold pressed, cold extracted oils.

The NPA Natural Standard Seal will be added to packaging in production runs later this year.

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, a family-owned company since 1930, is one of the most successful and prolific manufacturers of Indian herbs and formulas in the world. The company sells herbal supplement formulas, single herbs, and personal care products in over 75 countries worldwide.
