The association has certified a milestone 600 natural products and ingredients for both personal care and home care.

The Natural Products Association (NPA; Washington, DC) has certified a milestone 600 natural products and ingredients for both personal care and home care.

“Our 75th anniversary is the perfect time to recognize an important achievement in NPA history. In less than three years, we’ve reached more than 600 certifications under the NPA Natural Seal, which helps millions of Americans identify natural products at more than 85,000 stores nationwide,” said John Gay, NPA’s executive director and CEO.

“The NPA certification program has been a big success,” he continues. “We’ve earned the support of more than 45 companies, both large and small.”

The association says it plans to unveil a similar standard for certifying foods later this year.
