The Soil Association is the UK's leading campaigning and certification organisation for organic - providing certification to all sectors of the market including food, farms, textiles, health and beauty care, restaurants and even timber. Founded in 1946 their mission has always been to promote organic agriculture as a sustainable alternative to intensive farming methods, campaigning for safer, healthier produce and production methods.
The Soil Association is a unique certification organisation in that it has standards specific to health and beauty products. These standards were launched in 2002 and strictly govern the ingredients and processes that can be used in the production of organic products. This is why Bentley Organic stands by the Soil Association and its logo can be found on our products as a guarantee of our integrity - a logo that is recognised and trusted by consumers.
The standards state that organic health and beauty products should be fit for their purpose, have as high as possible proportion of organic ingredients and should not be harmful to human health and the environment in manufacture and in use. Furthermore, they require products to be comprehensively labelled to give clear and accurate information so that consumers can make an informed choice about what they are buying.
In addition, Soil Association certification means that our products are:
- Not tested on animals and do not contain ingredients of animal origin
- Parabens free
- GMO free
- Do not contain SLS or SLES
- Free from petro-chemicals
