Whole Foods Market’s standards go beyond typical “clean beauty” claims. The brand has banned over 100 ingredients, including parabens, phthalates, microbeads and triclosan from all beauty and body care products they sell. Additionally, Whole Foods Market requires third-party certification for organic label claims on personal care products, as there are no mandatory government standards for “organic” claims on body care products.
