What is the Clean Label Project Certification?

Clean Label Project CertifiedFor food and consumer product safety, American regulations largely focus on pathogen & microbiological contaminants. For categories where the Clean Label Project does not have benchmarked data to warrant a Clean Label Project Purity Award, the Clean Label Project borrows a page out of the State of California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Informally known as Proposition 65, it considered the strictest regulations in the USA when it comes to protecting consumers from industrial & environmental contaminants and chemicals of concern.

Proposition 65 aims to protect the state’s drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

Clean Label Project - Mission

The Clean Label Project™ is an American not-for-profit organisation aiming to bring truth and transparency to food and consumer product labelling. The foundation of food and consumer product safety in America is primarily focused on pathogen and microbiological contaminants. However, there is increasing consumer, media and academic attention being paid to the health consequences of exposure to heavy metals, pesticide residues and plasticisers. Yet, consumers will never find this information on product labels.

They are committed to changing the definition of food and consumer safety through the use of data, science and transparency. They award products that  focus on purity and surpass the minimum regulations required by the Food & Drug Administration. At Clean Label Project, they encourage brands to become part of the solution, by addressing growing consumer concerns of industrial & environmental contaminants and toxins in both food and consumer products.

Aqua Biome™ is the world’s first fish oil product to be certified by the Clean Label Project. They test fish oils for 130 environmental and industrial contaminants including dioxins, PCBs, pesticide residues and have extremely strict measurements for heavy metals including lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury.

This certification of every batch provides assurances that the Aqua Biome formulas offer best-in-class purity.

Friend of The SeaThe omega-3s contained within Aqua Biome™ are certified by Friend of the Sea as coming from an environmentally responsible and sustainable source.  

Sometimes, what’s NOT on a product label is what matters most

The Clean Label Project Certification mirrors the process for the Clean Label Project Purity Award by evaluating products for substances that would never be found on a product label. These substances include chemicals of concern and industrial and environmental toxins and contaminants (like heavy metals, pesticide residues and plasticisers) that have the long-term potential to adversely affect health and well-being. Clean Label Project Certification compliance requirements are largely inspired by the State of California Environmental Health Hazard Assessment Office’s Proposition 65 compliance.
