Mal’ak Products Approved by the Natural Product Association

Mar. 15, 2012. The Natural Product Association has recently released its latest list of NPA certified personal care products. All three products submitted to NPA for evaluation late last year by Mal’ak Natural, LLC, the Gentle Facial Cleanser, Supreme Moisturizer and Supreme Outdoor Lotion, have been approved to the list, and permission to use the NPA-certified seal has been granted.

Founded in 1936 and first under the name National Health Food Association, the Natural Products Association is currently the longest-lasting and most prevailing non-profit organization dedicated to serving and preserving the rights of natural products industry retailers and suppliers. As of 2011, NPA represents over 1,900 members accounting for over 10,000 retail, manufacturing, wholesale, and distribution locations of natural products, including foods, dietary supplements, and health/beauty aids.

Seeing the surge of all natural products for home and personal use in
the late 2000’s and an absence of government regulation, NPA published
its own standard/guideline and offered product certification starting
2008. To date over 800 products and ingredients have been certified
natural and approved to carry the Natural seal, and sold in over 85,000 stores across the states. The standard encompasses all cosmetic personal care products regulated and defined by the FDA, and its guideline gives equal emphasis on the source and nature of raw materials, as well as manufacturing process. A normal certification procedure takes weeks for a well prepared application, and involves both documentation review and laboratory tests.

NPA Standard and Certification for Personal Care Products.

An active member of NPA since its founding in 2008, Mal’ak Natural has always been aiming at maintaining highest standard for its personal care products specially formulated for children, and the NPA standard/guideline has seen its dominance throughout Mal’ak’s R&D and manufacturing. Following the NPA approval late last month, Mal’ak Natural has become the only brand nationwide to carry children-specific skin care products with NPA-certified seals, and an even greater choice for parents with extra care and love for their children.
