On each FarmHouse Fresh Naturals product, you'll find a tag, box or label printed with 3 things:
1. The percentage of ingredients that are natural or naturally derived. The average product ranges contains 93-100% natural and naturally derived ingredients. This number is an estimate, based on raw materials in each product. In cases where we are not able to confirm whether a synthetic process was used in the production of a particular ingredient, we have erred on the side of caution, and that particular ingredient is not included in the natural percentage. Under ISO 16128 “Derived Natural” ingredients are greater than 50% natural origin by molecular weight by renewable carbon content, or by any other relevant methods, obtained through defined chemical and/or biological process with the intention of chemical modifications.
2. Paraben & Sulfate-free. We choose not to use parabens and sulfates. Sulfates can dry out skin and cause extra irritations for people with eczema. Parabens have been debated for quite some time. Although dermatologists generally prefer to use them (particularly to keep mold from growing in facial products that can come into contact with your eyes), and many dermatologists cite sound studies showing parabens are safe to use, there are plenty of alternative preservatives that are effective and that meet the demand from our customers to avoid using parabens.
3. Vegan or Gluten-Free & Cruelty Free. 99% of our products are vegan or gluten-free. We are strict in our use of the term vegan. Even if a bee naturally makes honey, and honey is in the product, that product is not considered vegan. For the most up-to-date information, please refer to the product page on the website.
Most of our products now have a Cruelty Free logo on packaging. We LOOOOOVE animals and recently received our PETA Cruelty Free certificate. We never test on animals - we are rescuers of them - dogs, bunnies, horses, turtles, donkeys, and goats that reside at our FHF Ranch.
ESSENTIAL OILS, PLANT EXTRACTS, & FRAGRANCE:
All our products are Phthalate-FREE, whether they use essential oils, plant extracts or include blends of synthetic notes. We capture deliciousness - from fresh baked whoopie pies to crisp cilantro and lime. We hope our products make you swoon from the first crack of the jar.
