VERDE develop and test products on willing humans, with every growing request from customers to develop further products to suit their needs. Our preparations can have multiple functions i.e. shower and bath gels may be used when travelling as shampoos. We endeavour to develop products with intelligence and honesty that function to enhance human wellbeing.
Our products should always be stored away from direct sunlight or temperatures above 25º. Practical plastics are used for shampoos and shower gels. As is the norm with many companies we do NOT allocate a massive percentage on packaging and marketing and our packaging can be reused as with the bath salt jars.
Standards laid down by the MCA
In order to comply to the standards laid down by the MCA (Medical Controls Agency) essential oils and phyto (plant) ingredients cannot be described in any way that may be construed as ‘therapeutic’, i.e. causing any physical or emotional change that could appear to be making a ‘medical claim’ by helping or alleviating a particular condition, therefore, all our literature, information and labels have been re-written to conform to this ruling.
Our shops carry many reference books on herbs and essential oils plus information on ingredients if our customers need more in-depth understanding and greater details.
Not tested on animals
Our products are not tested on animals, the ingredients are well-established and when we formulated our products in 1987, the ingredients were not tested on animals.
VERDE products aim to contribute toward maintenance and restoration of inner well-being, vibrant health and outer radiance.
This highly effective range of Pure Plant Preparation accords with an essential philosophy. We provide the beneficial properties of plants to the consumer with maximum effect at an affordable cost.
Totally avoiding artificial fragrances
Each product is created with plant ingredients, totally avoiding artificial fragrances. We combine the best possible formulations for the particular function of the preparation using only biodegradable ingredients for minimal environmental impact.
We completely avoid any involvement at all with animal testing in the provision of any single preparation.
Our range is vegan - apart from a few preparations that use Beeswax - extracted without harm to the bees.
We only use raw materials
we only use raw materials that were not available on the market prior to 1998, if they have not been tested on animals.
In order to comply with the law, we must ensure that products are microbiologically safe, therefore only products with a high content of botanical extracts may contain minute amounts of food Grade Nature Identical preservatives within the preservative system.
Currently Companies may label their products 'preservative free', but please be aware that if a product has a shelf life of 2 years, somewhere in the products the preservative will be hidden: Alcohol is one of the most frequently used.
The most common microbes to infect personal care product, are: bacteria, fungi, yeast and moulds.
The importance of keeping products free of microbes must not be underestimated. we at verde use organic herbal and floral tinctures in conjunction with less than 00.5% phenoxyethanol rose ether ethinexlglyceria
