The products in Booming Bob have different ecological certifications:
USDA, NSF and soon also EcoCert Cosmos.
The reason for this is that the products are manufactured in both the US and South Africa depending on where the raw materials are grown.
We always try to keep production as close to the crops as possible.
Read more about our certifications below.
The USDA is a state certification operated by the US Department of Agriculture. The authority was established in 1862 by Abraham Lincoln as a service to US farmers. Today they are regulators and control from forests and farms to food and skincare. The National Organic Program (NOP) that handles skin care is one of the world’s most stringent certification bodies. At least 95% of the content must be organic.
