Organic certification verifies that our handling facility in Massachusetts complies with the USDA organic regulations and allows us to sell, label, and represent our products as organic. These regulations describe the specific standards required for us to use the word “organic” and the USDA organic seal on our products. The USDA National Organic Program administers these regulations, with substantial input from its citizen advisory board and the public. Every Made Simple product is labeled with the organic seal because every one meets or exceeds the contains a minimum of 95 percent organic ingredients; most are above 99 percent.

We have never tested any of our ingredients nor products on animals and we never will. We source our ingredients only from suppliers who demonstrate our same cruelty-free standards and provide documentation to prove that. Send us an email if you’d like to see that documentation. You are assured that Made Simple products are cruelty-free. You can find us on the Logical Harmony Cruelty-Free Brand List and the PETA Beauty Without Bunnies program, two trusted lists of cruelty-free brands. 

Made Simple Skin Care certified organic raw vegan made in massachusetts

Every one of our products is crafted at our Massachusetts facility and the process overseen by the company owners. We do not out-source anything. This is entirely possible since we do everything in small-batches so when we run low on supplies we just make a few more. What about large wholesale orders? Well, we just stay up a bit later and work a bit longer.

Every product and product ingredient is both raw and vegan. Raw means that we do not heat any ingredient above 100-degree F. In fact, the only ingredients we warm are the shea butter and coconut oil for the body moisturizer. They are warmed only to the point where they become soft enough to easily mix with the other ingredients and achieve the creamy texture. And unlike many skin care products, we use nothing animal-based; not even bees wax.

Product Stewardship – Recycling is wonderful but at Made Simple we believe reusing is even better. And what better thing to reuse then our thick glass bottles and jars. While we certainly encourage our customers to re-purpose the glass bottles and jars for things such as saving seeds, propagating plants or keeping spices; once a customer has at least 10 non-sample size jars and/or bottles we’ll gladly take them back, pay the shipping to do so. Learn More

When a company gives back it sends a strong message about the company’s culture. At Made Simple we express that culture by including our customers. Our “give back” program contributes a percentage of our sales to small progressive charities with revenues below $100,000. This isn’t anything new but the way we do it is by accepting nominations from our customers in the areas of plastic pollution, animal welfarecriminal justice reform and the artsLearn More

Materials matter!  They matter because not only is there a material life-cycle but some materials can actually contaminate the product it contains. All of our products come in glass because we believe plastics are harmful to the integrity of our products and harmful to our shared planet. 

In terms of shipping, we never use packing peanuts, bubble wraps, etc. We ship using a cardboard box with repurposed white or brown packing paper. Many of our raw ingredients come packaged this way so we simply reuse those same sustainable packaging supplies. No, it’s not the most elegant packaging but we’d prefer that to more junk in our oceans. We hope you agree.
