We’re excited to announce that Neal’s Yard Remedies has certified its best-selling Frankincense Intense™ Collection, Wild Rose Beauty Balm and their NEW Frankincense Intense™ Lift Serum as MADE SAFE®! We’re proud to work with this established, award winning British brand that believes what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body, and has always worked to protect the planet and its people.

Why is this important? Studies show that common chemicals in conventional personal care products such as parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde-releasing chemicals like Quaternium-15 have been linked to cancer, hormone disruption, reproductive harm, and other serious health impacts.[1]  Conversely, studies show that actively avoiding toxic chemicals actually lowers levels of them in the body.[2]

Neal’s Yard Remedies is a family-owned British company that has been on the forefront of healthier product formulation and ethical standards for over three decades, with direct selling channels (known as NYR Organic) in the UK and US.

They were the first company certified under Soil Association Organic Health & Beauty Standards in 2002, and they support and practice fair trade through organizations like Fairtrade Foundation, Fair for Life, and FairWild. We love that Neal’s Yard Remedies thinks about sustainability holistically: They have been campaigning against the use of neonic pesticides with their “Bee Lovely and Help Save the Bees” petitions and charitable donations, they know the origins of all their herbs and ingredients, and grow as many as they can in their own gardens in the UK; and their factory uses solar panels on the roof and rainwater in the restrooms.

To start, Neal’s Yard Remedies has certified its Frankincense Intense™ Concentrate, Frankincense Intense™ Cream, Frankincense Intense™ Eye Cream, Frankincense Intense™ Lift Serum, and Wild Rose Beauty Balm. More MADE SAFE certified products are on the way!

In the U.S., Neal’s Yard Remedies products are available through their 10,000+ Independent Consultants.
