January 25, 2013

Whole Foods Market has been named the highest ranked retailer for personal care product safety in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Retailer Report. In the report, the company is commended for implementing “a rigorous and transparent approach to screening the personal care products it sells.”

“We are proud and thrilled to be mentioned in the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’ Retailer Report in such high esteem,” said Jeremiah McElwee, executive Whole Body coordinator. “This validates both our team’s hard work and that of the wonderful supplier partners we work with to deliver the absolute highest quality natural and organic body care products to our customers.”

Whole Foods Market announced its Premium Body Care standards in March 2008, which was the first private standard for personal care products created by a major retailer in the US. The company now offers more than 3,800 personal care products that meet these rigorous standards. In September 2012, the company announced that all organic personal care products in its US stores are third-party certified, making Whole Foods Market the first national retailer to mandate certification for all organic personal care products on its shelves.
