Many personal care companies spend more on their packaging than on the ingredients in their products. MiVeda does the opposite. MiVeda produces unique natural products using only the best certified organic ingredients. While MiVeda understands that our packaging needs to be top class and eco-friendly, we strongly feel that most of the production cost should be spent on using the best ingredients so we can provide you with the very best products possible.
The MiVeda difference is our philosophy to our products - MiVeda products contain only the best, most effective, certified natural and organic ingedients, and most importantly, NO potentially harmful ingredients.
We make it an absolute priority to eliminate all potentially harmful ingredients from our products, and this makes them unique in many countries around the world.
Our observation over several decades is that many companies say their products have no harmful ingredients in them - but because they are “self regulating”, we feel that some companies produce products which, in our opinion, are not acceptable.
We have noticed that some companies which say they do not use harmful ingredients simply use the same old ingredients but call them by a different name. Some companies use a mix of ingredients under a trade name but SLS (or derivatives) are still included in the respective ingredient mixture.
We therefore feel that each company needs to be supervised by an independent, “third party” which stringently checks that their products comply with an acceptable code or standard. Our opinion is that all products need to be natural and certified as organic by a reputable certification process.
MiVeda produces products which are ACO certified to COSMOS standards. This is an extremely strict process which is scrutinised and audited through the whole manufacturing process (from growing the ingredients, to ensuring only the stated ingredients are used, to storage and manufacturing process). Click here to review the extreme conditions required to have products certified. We add that only eco responsible (sustainable) growing methods are allowed for ingredients to be approved.
Not only does this mean MiVeda products are certified natural and organic but they also do not have:
- Biocidal preservatives
- Artificial fragrances
- Synthetic colouring
MiVeda products are readily biodegradable and waterway friendly.
Most particularly we avoid the usage of the following specific ingredients which are commonly used in many commercial products for sale in retail shops around the world (Note that SLS is now listed as a poison by the Australian TGA):
- Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
- Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES)
- Propylene Glycol
- Formalin (Formaldehyde)
- Mineral Oil
MiVeda’s primary cleansing system is our botanical cleansing complex which is derived from sustainably sourced coconut cleaning agents. These plant essences cleanse gently and leave the hair and skin in its most naturally clean state.
- Cleanses with pure plant extracts
- Over 99% plant derived, organically certified and/or wild harvested ingredients.
- Natural “hydrating” cleansing system not a detergent sulphate
