    myCNF Verifed Clean Beauty

    Every ingredient is vetted through our myCNF Verified program for toxicity, quality (grade, processing and source) and impact on human, animal and environmental welfare.

    Our standards for ingredients far exceed simply being legal and allowed for sale in Canada. Community Natural Foods has reviewed studies and ratings by several different worldwide agencies and governments to ensure absolute safety.

    Most items are gluten free and many are vegan as well. All products are free from animal testing.

    Community Natural Foods allows certain identified ingredients of concern or “cautionary” ingredients due to the lack of better ingredient options in products. These concerns include:

    • Synthetic colors in some hair colour
    • Widely used and approved substances considered safe for use, such as fluoride in some toothpaste
    • Lower-risk surfactants and emulsifiers in some hair colouring products

     

    We’ve identified over 650 common beauty product ingredients that we consider unacceptable in products we sell. You'll never find these ingredients in our beauty and bodycare products (with exception of hair colour):
