The products in this category meet Whole Food's Premium Body Care Standards. This additional tier of premium standards allows you to constantly remain at the forefront of positive change for a healthy lifestyle.
More than 400 ingredients have been identified as unacceptable for Premium Body Care. These include parabens, polypropylene and polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl and laureth sulfactes.
Preservatives are necessary in body care products, especially water-based products. This standard allows only milder preservatives which must be shown to function properly, yet have a lower likelihood of causing cosmetic related allergies and sensitivities.
Surfactants are used for cleaning, degreasing, emulsifying, conditioning and creating foam. This standard allows only the safest, most gentle types available.
Fragrance is a component that most people expect in premium products, and if naturally derived, may have aromatherapy benefits as well. For philosophical and safety reasons, only natural essential oils and components of natural essential oils are allowed as fragrances in this premium standard.
We do our best to provide accurate details, however, it is the brand owner’s responsibility to verify information. Please refer to this link for up to date ingredients for Whole Foods Premium Products.
