Regulatory Unrest in the Personal Care Industry

Organic ingredients and finished products have been highly regulated in the food industry for years. The personal care industry has not had to meet those same standards since they are not governed under the same body. This means that there are a lot of products with misleading “organic” statements and claims which are frustrating and confusing to people who think they are buying true “organic” products. Activist groups, as well as some very large retailers, are pushing hard for a regulatory change in this industry.

There are many “organic” standards and certifying agencies all over the world, but only one that is universally recognized. Certification by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) is the gold standard for personal care products. It is the standard that everyone knows and trusts because in order to bear this seal, products must be >95% organic.

To satisfy the need for USDA certified personal care ingredients, Grain Processing Corporation has added MALTRIN OR™ Organic Rice Maltodextrin and Organic Rice Syrup Solids to its portfolio of high-quality, functional personal care ingredients. MALTRIN OR™ Organic Rice Maltodextrin and Organic Rice Syrup Solids can be used to add body and solids to formulas without adding significant viscosity as well as impart a rich creamy texture to creams, lotions and body washes. These products are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and are excellent choices for organic cosmeceuticals.

For more information on MALTRIN OR™ Organic Rice Maltodextrins or MALTRIN OR™ Organic Rice Syrup Solids, please visit the organic section of this website.
