ETHICAL CBD STANDARDS (ECBDS)
We stand for clean and ethical CBD beauty. As part of this, we have set our own premium guidelines for quality and safety which exceeds industry standards: Ethical CBD Standards (ECBDS).
Part of this commitment is our partnership with Environmental Working Group (EWG), the leading third-party ingredients safety certification for beauty and personal care goods.
What is the Ethical Cannabidiol Standards (ECBDS)
The CBD industry is alive, well and thriving albeit rapidly growing without any real form of control of standards for the oil produced and being on sold to consumers.
The intent of ECBDS is to provide the end consumers with confidence about the purity and the integrity of the product they are intending to consumer or topically apply.
Essentially, it’s a way to take the uncertainty out of making a CBD purchase and to cut through the old wives’ tales, urban myths and if course, avoid the cowboys.
The core principles of ECBDS are:
- Is the farm where it was grown licensed?
- Is the facility it was extracted from licensed?
- Is the Brand licensed?
- Is the product grown using organic farming practices?
- Does the product have certified organic ingredients?
3RD PARTY TESTING
- Each production batch is to undergo 3rd Party Lab testing and analysis
- Results are published to the website for any interested consumers to review.
- Transparency and full information of all ingredients in the final product must be displayed
- Any organic products must be clearly identified
- The source of the CBD’s origins is clear, trackable, and single sourced.
- The CBD MG must be clearly listed on the front of the bottle.
- Type of CBD must be clearly listed (full spectrum, broad spectrum, isolate).
At BIOS Organics™ we are committed to bringing you the best CBD products possible. We will be expanding our ECBDS position even further and introducing more stringent growing, extraction, processing and production standards. We challenge each and every other CBD company to offer the same level of transparency and commitment to quality.
FEDERAL CBD LICENSE
To reduce the risk of purchasing inferior products, it is ideal to purchase CBD directly from companies that not only control end-to-end supply from farming to bottling, but also hold their Federal CBD License. This strict license gives you peace of mind that their CBD meets government legislation and USA standards. Here is a list of the Top 5 CBD brands and which ones have their own (not third party) Federally licensed farms:
Purity of the CBD can be compromised when sourcing is not disclosed. Some CBD is a blend of CBD from more than one supplier, distributor or producer. Single-sourced verified CBD provides transparency of its origin and can be tracked back to one farm and the year of harvest. BIOS Organics™ CBD is verified as single-sourced.
This standard has been established to help consumers take the guess work out for buying CBD, in partnership with well-respected certifications including USDA Organics, Leaping Bunny and EWG. Buy with confidence knowing BIOS Organics™ meets all the standards outlined here.
GMP covers all aspects of production, from the starting materials, premises and equipment, to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. When purchasing CBD, we recommend buying from companies that produce their products in GMP certified facilities such as BIOS Organics™
The EWG VERIFIED™ mark does the work for you. When you see the EWG VERIFIED™ mark on a product, you can be sure it’s free from EWG’s chemicals of concern and meets their strictest standards for your health. As part of our commitment to stand for clean and ethical beauty, we have partnered with Environmental Working Group (EWG), the leading third-party ingredients safety certification for beauty and personal care goods.
We believe everyone should benefit from the natural healing properties of CBD in the form of skincare and wellness. ALL BIOS Organics™ products are natural, affordable, and safe for people around the world.
If you want to support brands that don’t test on animals, ensure it carries certification. A lot of leading brands make false claims. If they’re sold in mainland China, they test on animals. Leaping Bunny is a strict governing body that ensures companies are 100% cruelty free. Leaping Bunny’s audit process is thorough, which entails a full ingredients audit including sourcing and the countries they sell in.
A beauty or wellness product is vegan if it doesn’t contain any animal by-products or ingredients sourced from animals. Common non-vegan ingredients found in products include beeswax, lanolin, honey, and tallow. We harness the power of plant, following strict organic farming practices.
Some companies claim to be USA made but the farms they source their ingredients from are located in countries with relaxed and less-regulated legislation. When it comes to CBD products, to ensure purity and authenticity, ECBDS recommends you chose a CBD company that overseas all areas of their production in the USA. This includes harvesting, extraction, manufacturing, and distribution. BIOS Organics™ is 100% USA made and is compliant with USA Organic Farming Practices.
Buy1Give1 is a non for profit organization that is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
The 17 SDGs are integrated—that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Through the pledge to Leave No One Behind, countries have committed to fast-track progress for those furthest behind first. That is why the SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.

BIOS Organics™ is committed to profit and purpose and track all their impacts through their partnership with Ethical Beauty.

This includes acknowledgement and setting 50% percentage ownership by woman in the sector, BIOS Organics™ is predominately female-founded and owned, setting positive new standards in not only the CBD industry, but the beauty sector.
The beauty industry is a major contributor to landfill. Recycled material alone is not enough and does not make a company compliant. Committing to zero waste requires companies to meet strict biodegradable, reusable and recycled measures. BIOS Organics™ is committed to zero waste. their sustainability measures make them the #1 Zero Waste CBD company in the world.
