Would you consume phthalates, aluminum chlorohydrate or triclosan? If you find yourself pulling up Google to answer that question, chances are the answer is no. At Whole Foods Market Bellingham, we believe what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. As the U.S. government does not require health studies or pre-market testing for personal care products, Whole Foods Market created our own quality standards for every product on the shelf.

Whole Foods has made their own label so purchasing non-toxic, healthy body care products is easy. Submitted by: Whole Foods Market Bellingham.

Basic Body Care Standards

There are over 75 potentially harmful chemicals and other common body care ingredients that are not allowed in Whole Foods Market products. Whole Foods Market encourages vendor partners to use plant-based and naturally-derived ingredients, pure essential oil fragrances, gentle preservatives and non-petroleum ingredients. Learn more about Whole Foods Market Basic Body Care Standards, here.

Premium Body Care Standards

Whole Foods Market’s Premium Body Care Standards were created after three years of expert analysis and ongoing research. They meet the strictest standards for quality sourcing, environmental impact, results and safety. There are more than 400 ingredients deemed unacceptable in over 2,500 Premium Body Care products. Learn more about Premium Body Care products here and look for the Premium Body Care logo next time you’re shopping!

Organic Body Care Standards

What you put on your body is as important as what you put in it. Submitted by: Whole Foods Market Bellingham.

There are no mandatory government standards for the “organic” label claim on body care products, so Whole Foods Market created our own. There are three guidelines that Whole Foods Market uses for organic body care products. The first is that all personal care products making an “organic” product claim are required to contain at least 95% organic ingredients and be certified to the USDA National Organic Standards. Learn about the other guidelines here.

While Whole Foods Market’s basic standards already sets us apart, the additional tier of Premium standards allow us to constantly remain at the forefront of positive change for your healthy lifestyle. We’re always moving forward and raising the bar. And it doesn’t stop there. As new information is discovered, Whole Foods Market will raise the bar again. And again.

Bellingham Whole Foods Market is located at the corner of Lakeway and Lincoln. The store is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sales, coupons, events and more at wfm.com/bellinghamlakeway.
