Carrubba was the first U.S. botanical extract manufacturer in the personal care arena to become certified to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program (USDA NOP) in 2003. This standard is federal law in the USA and is recognized globally as the organic gold standard. All major global certifiers accept USDA NOP certified ingredients. This independently verified process based management system provides consumer confidence and prohibits the use of GMO’s, radiation, synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.
Not only is the plant grown to organic standards, but the processing, production, and handling of the plant through the extraction process is also governed by the NOP. Carrubba makes both water and oil soluble organic extracts for over 225 species of plant.
