Organic Soaps And Balm LLC, a Charlottesville-based, woman-owned manufacturer of organic olive oil based skincare products, was recently awarded certification as a USDA National Organic Program (NOP) certified organic handler and producer.

To achieve the certification, Organic Soaps And Balm passed a stringent audit by Oregon Tilth Certified organic (OTCO), qualifying in all areas, including sourcing, formulation and production procedures,  sanitizing and cleaning processes, tracking of all in-and outgoing products.

“As the formulator, my primary goal has always been to find the purest materials and highest quality organic ingredients available,” said Organic Soaps and Balms co-owner and founding partner, Brigitte Rau. “We have followed organic practices since we began in 2001, and are grateful for our loyal customers who appreciate our commitment to quality and purity standards.”  

Certified organic skin care can carry the green NOP seal, which is well-recognized from the organic food aisles. All organic processed products, from food to beverages to body care, go through the same rigorous certification process, regardless of whether they will be ingested or applied to the body.  This process assures the consumer that all organic products contain no synthetic toxins, pesticides/herbicides, or genetically modified organisms (gmo), and are free from synthetic preservatives, colors, and artificial flavors. 



“When we started in 2001, organic body care was a niche market”, said Rau.  “Now that all mainstream cosmetic companies want a piece of the eco-market, the integrity of organic is being clouded by fake seals and hollow marketing phrases that deceive consumers. By going through the certification process, we are recognized as one of the very few true organic body care producers.
