The first hemp-inspired beauty brand has now earned the status of being Non-GMO Project Verified, and will display the organization's seal on its packaging -- Andalou Naturals' CannaCell.
CannaCell includes skincare, body care, and hair care products.
The news is timely -- it is Non-GMO Month. More diligent consumers are seeking out the Non-GMO Project Verified label, the company says.
Andalou Naturals believes that GMO crops, and the dependency on pesticides they create, are in conflict with the wellbeing of people and the planet. Because of this, Andalou Naturals continues their commitment to transparent labeling practices. In addition to Non-GMO Project Verified, its products are labeled as: gluten free verified, certified organic, nature derived, vegetarian, vegan, sustainably sourced and fair-trade ingredients, cruelty-free.
Stacey Kelly Egide, founder / co-CEO, Andalou Naturals, says, "We look to nature for inspiration and innovation and hemp provides both when formulating beauty products. By applying the principles of our groundbreaking Fruit Stem Cell Science, we developed CannaCell, the first Hemp Stem Cells for beauty care – an innovative ingredient that harnesses the power of hemp and puts it to work for skin, hair and body care, delivering the same trusted performance as all Andalou Naturals products, as well as the Non-GMO Project Verified seal of approval."
