How does a company qualify to be on American Made Beauty?

In order to meet the standard as an American Made Beauty brand it is critical that the qualifications are strictly followed to protect the value of this claim.

Products must be produced in a facility that meets Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for the use of Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) ingredients and good manufacturing practices (GMP) standards. Products must also be labeled according to FDA standards with proper ingredient listings, warnings (if applicable) and usage instructions.

We also review company’s websites to ensure that proper labeling disclosures are visible. The standards set by both the FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) allow consumers to make informed choices about their health and beauty products before they make a purchase.

We issue two types of good house keeping seals for made in America brands:

When a brand participates with AMB, they warrant and we verify that they meet the required standards.


Is a product required to be 100% American?

No. And here’s why: Our country works closely with other countries in order to ensure a smooth flow of resources for a balanced and thriving global economy. We want to inspire sustainable business concepts, like purchasing raw materials, and labor and manufacturing based on the use of all resources (energy, indigenous materials, etc.) rather than just cost. We would love for all products showcased on American Made Beauty to be made using only US raw materials, but we also recognize (as does the FDA and the FTC) that it’s not always possible. We hope that companies who obtain one of our seals will continue to do all that they can to support American innovation, whether it’s through ingredients, packaging or manufacturing.

What is a Made in California Seal?

CA Made is a California state labeling program designed to encourage consumer product awareness and to promote the purchase of products manufactured in California. The product must be “substantially made” in California in accordance with California Government Code. “Substantially made” means completing an act that adds at least 51 percent of a final product’s wholesale value by manufacture assembly, fabrication, or production to create a final, recognizable product in CA. The product must also meet the standards set to a made in America brand as stated above.


What is the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard?

The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories — material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product receives an achievement level in each category — Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum — with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark.

Product assessments are performed by a qualified independent organization trained by the Institute. Assessment Summary Reports are reviewed by the Institute, which certifies products meeting the Standard requirements, and licenses the use of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ word and design marks to the product manufacturer. Every two years, manufacturers must demonstrate good faith efforts to improve their products in order to have their products recertified.
