The National Product Association’s List of Allowed Ingredients

Published on October 14, 2019. Last Updated on August 26, 2020.

Through their ongoing mission to facilitate consumer access to personal care as well as home products that can truly be considered natural, the National Product Association has defined a list of “positive” ingredients which meet their criteria for the concept of natural, under the NPA National Standard.  All ingredients must be sourced from natural renewable flora, fauna and mineral origins

Genuine Natural Products Abide By High Standards Set Forth by the NPA
The NPA’s list of allowed ingredients help ensure the development of products that can truly be considered natural and abide by their certification criteria.

Not all forms of these ingredients will necessarily be accepted by the NPA. In some instances, product manufacturers will need to provide documentation  to ensure that the ingredients were sourced and processed according to natural standards, as specified by the NPA.

All ingredients used by Dr.UGro ™ products can be found on this list.
