What is the difference between all Natural, Organic and USDA Certified Organic?
While all Natural and Organic products are assumed to be minimally processed, made without harmful chemicals to support health and wellness and the environment, there is no guarantee that this is the case given that there are no rules or regulations for the labelling of natural product. They are non-certified. USDA Certified Organic on the other hand requires compliance and testing against rigorous criteria for both the raw materials and the facility manufacturing the certified organic products.
Are these products certified organic under the Canadian Organic Standards?
Canadian Organic Standards currently do not have a category for cleaning products under their program, therefore it is not possible for ALLORGANIC® to be certified under the Canadian Organic Standard.
