April 3, 2014 — HANA Organic Skincare is proud to announce that we have just received the Non-GMO Project Verification seal for our Lavender Grains, Gentle Toner, Luxe Serum and Eye Oil, with additional products currently under review.
“We are so excited to have completed this verification process, and take pride in its completion,” said Karen Ries, founder and owner of HANA Organic Skincare. “We care deeply about what ingredients we use in our products, and will not include anything that has not been proven safe, such as GMO’s.” GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses, and other plants or animals, which have not been proven to be safe. “Since the majority of our ingredients are plant based, it was important for us to ensure they are non-GMO.”
About HANA Organic Skincare
At HANA Organic Skincare, we offer products for just about every skin type, and we make sure that each one is as clean and pure as your face deserves. We believe in using only the finest organic/biodynamic ingredients that are as close to their natural state as possible. Each product is handcrafted with only good intentions for your radiant health and well-being.
There is no comfort in reading a list of chemicals when you look at your personal care ingredients. Most commercial skincare products contain highly toxic and irritating ingredients. Those ingredients are absorbed into your skin, and often cause allergic reactions and other skin sensitivities.
For exactly those reasons, Karen Ries created HANA Organic Skincare in 2011. The products are handmade in small batches, to assure freshness and well-monitored quality control. As a person with dry and sensitive skin (and a daughter with oily skin), it was important to develop an effective, yet very gentle skincare solution not only for herself, but for others that struggled with skin sensitivities.
After becoming a certified herbalist, Karen turned the family kitchen into an organic skincare laboratory, using the medicinal herbs from her small garden. Eventually, the art and science of skin care came together, she moved to her studio, and HANA Organic Skincare was born (named after Karen’s daughter, Hana). The company continues to grow and with the help of Natalie Berry. This year, the two of them will remain committed to their labeling standards and support of local and international charities.
All of HANA Organic Skincare’s products are handcrafted in the USA, on Bainbridge Island WA, using certified organic and Demeter Biodynamic certified ingredients. They are 100% toxin free, contain no sulfates, parabens, phthalates or parfumes, and are 100% animal cruelty free, and gluten free. In order to keep a low carbon footprint, their bottling and marketing materials are recyclable.
