What is the difference between Natural, Organic and USDA Certified Organic?
While 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 because there are no rules or regulations for the labelling of natural products. On the other hand, the USDA Certified Organic label requires compliance and testing against rigorous criteria for both the raw materials and the facility manufacturing the products.
Are these products certified organic under 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. The USDA Organic Certification Program does have a category for cleaning products, which has been in place since 2009.

What does “full ingredient disclosure” mean?
Full ingredient disclosure means displaying every ingredient used in our products clearly on the product label so there is full transparency about what is in the bottle. This is not a requirement of the USDA Organic Certification, however it something we feel is important for our customers.
Why are some ingredients listed using their Latin name? Why don’t you just use everyday English?
By using the Latin name we identify the specific plant from which the ingredient is sourced. It ensures we clearly identify the ingredient. The common name is often listed adjacent, in brackets, to provide further clarity and also as a requirement by the CCCR (Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations).
