- Are ALL of your products safe to use in pregnancy and while nursing?
Several of our products are specifically formulated for use during pregnancy and/or while nursing. On the menue click on the pregnancy labor link under women. Please see individual product pages for details.
- Are your products safe for Premature Babies, Newborns, Babies and Kids?
Many of our products are suitable for use on babies and kids and are clearly labeled with the age appropriate details and when it is best for use.
We recommend premature babies only use unscented baby care products (including those scented with organic essential oils and absolutes), such as our Unscented Organic Baby Massage Oil. Preterm babies lack the protective cutaneous film, Vernix with its essential anti-microbial fighting properties. A study done on infants treated with sunflower oil had 41% less infections than those using other products that contained, mineral oil, petroleum and lanolin, with even better results when started within 24 hours after birth. Our Organic Baby Massage Oils contain a small amount of certified organic sunflower oil in the formulations.
- Why do you Use Certified Organic Ingredients?
There are so many different synthetic chemicals found in non-certified organic fruits, vegetable and other plant matter that make up beauty care products today. Many of which, including synthetic preservatives, artificial dyes and fragrances, have been clinically proven to cause tumors, cancers, irritations to the body and several types of skin disorders. Clinical studies have shown almost 60 percent of skincare products are absorbed directly into the skin. Certified Organic ensures purity of every product we put onto our bodies. This ensures non-toxic products and gives you the peace of mind to know your family is using safe and high quality personal care products, especially those for use on your developing newborn baby.
Certified Organic means:
No Pesticides or Herbicides
No Harsh or Synthetic Chemicals
No Petroleum Based Products
USDA Certified Organic is the Highest Green standard in the USA.
- Are your products USDA Certified Organic?
We have not yet begun the certification process however; we plan to do so in the future. Organic Reverence’s Philosophy is to use Certified Organic or Wild Harvested Ingredients in all of our products. Wild Harvested ingredients are grown in their natural state- cultivated without the use of chemicals, and do not use Conventional Farming Practices. We have carefully selected suppliers who abide by strict quality control practices and who also take into consideration the social and environmental impact; with in house labs to test for purity. Our ingredients are also 3rd party
laboratory tested for quality control and human safety; testing for
microbial contaminants, moisture, botanical identities, pesticide and
chemical residues, sulfites, heavy metals and other contaminants.
We receive a Certificate of Authenticity with each and every
ingredient that gives us documentation of how the product was grown:
Wildcrafted (grown naturally in the wild- without the use of chemical
pesticides and herbicides), NON-GMO (genetically modified) or Organic
Certification along with the necessary medicinal constituents (when
applicable), manufacture dates, region the ingredient was grown and
certifying agent; so we can trace that ingredient back to its source. Click HERE to read more on problems associated with conventional farming methods and the impact on our ecosystems, Human Health and GMO’s.
In addition, we use Sustainable, Fair Trade and Ethical ingredients whenever possible!!
- What are your products packaged in?
With the widespread health concerns in regards to chemicals found in plastics, such as phthalates, potentially leaching into our personal care products, Organic Reverence has chosen to be in the forefront of the revolution that is changing the face of commercial cosmetics packaging. For this reason, we have chosen not to package our pure organic products in plastic. Our products are packaged in recyclable: glass & food grade aluminum tins or in biodegradable & compostable cardboard. Paper is the most successfully recycled post consumer material, is inherently carbon neutral.

- What if I have a reaction to one of your products?
As with any product you have a reaction to, discontinue use immediately and contact a physician.
****For skin irritation with essential oils or accidental exposure to the eyes, plain olive, coconut or almond oil applied to the skin will help to to eliminate the irritation, and wash with mild soap and water. If irritation persists, contact a physician. Plants do contain natural chemicals that may cause allergic reactions in some individuals or those individuals who are overexposed to synthetic allergens , over exposure or improper exposure has “sensitized” the individual to that particular ingredient.

- Are there artificial Fragrances in your products?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! The word “Fragrance or Parfum” listed on a product’s label can hide hundreds of different synthetic chemicals causing a wide variety of allergic reactions to the body. We only use Pure Therapeutic Quality Organic Essential oils and Absolutes that give our products their wonderful aroma and assist in healing conditions of the body.

YES, our products are specifically formulated for those with sensitive skin! Our founder has sensitive skin as well as several family members whom she originally created some of the formulations for. You will NOT find synthetic chemicals in our products, which are the typical cause of irritation in skincare today. However plants do contain natural chemicals that may cause allergic reactions in some individuals especially in those where synthetic ingredients, over exposure or improper exposure has “sensitized” the individual to that particular ingredient. Every ingredient we use has been specifically chosen for its scientific safety data as a non skin-irritant. If you are new to Organic Reverence, as a precautionary measure, we always advise a 24-48 hour patch test to ensure there are no sensitivities to a product.
