Largest NPA-certified ingredient portfolio
The Natural Product Association (NPA) has recently re-certified 81 BASF ingredients.
“Our research shows a consistent growth in demand for natural ingredients in the market and has led to our customers launching products with plant-inspired and botanical ingredients offering multi-functional properties,” said Nader Mahmoud, Vice President, Personal Care, BASF North America. “Eight years of offering the largest NPA-certified ingredient selection is a testament to our continued commitment to providing our customers with sustainable and natural solutions through our innovation portfolio.”
Since 2008, NPA’s Natural Seal program has certified nearly 1,200 finished personal care products and over 1,100 personal care ingredients. All NPA-certified products have been verified to fit the organisation’s Natural Standard by an independent third-party auditor.
The BASF portfolio for natural cosmetics ranges from raw materials – such as surfactants and emollients – to additives and active ingredients. In addition to the NPA Natural Standard, BASF supports customers by providing the necessary data for the COSMOS and NATRUE standards and the ISO 16128 norm as well as offering low-1,4-Dioxane ingredients.
