Product Labeling Guidelines
There are no official guidelines established for the cosmetic and
personal care product industry. These guidelines are suggested by the
Natural Ingredient Resource Center. They mirror the organic food

NIRC Truth in Labeling graphic pledge to uphold these guidelines.
Participation is voluntary; compliance is based upon the honor system.
