Consciousness in Cosmetics About Us
It's in our name: Avalon Organics. We're dedicated to the expansion of organic agriculture and endeavor to select organic ingredients for our products to support the highest ideals of sustainable, organic agriculture, a cleaner environment and good health. Our devotion to Consciousness in Cosmetics defines an unwavering commitment: To create an extraordinary, unprecedented range of products that are inherently pure and safe while expanding the efficacy and vibrantly healthy benefits of natural body care. We honor you with Consciousness in Cosmetics.
Since 1994, we have worked hard to create exceptionally pure and effective personal care products. We are inspired by organic agriculture and the ongoing cause of sustainability -- both of health and of the environment -- and we are humbled by a profound respect for the life of all things -- thus our use of 100% vegetarian ingredients and our rejection of all animal testing.
To us, honoring the body with Consciousness in Cosmetics is a central element of our story. Recognizing the privilege of sharing our body care formulas with you, we strive to create an experience that is sensual, satisfying, effective and conscious of the greater good -- your health, the environment and general well-being.
Your body is your temple. Take time to honor it.
Our Mission is Consciousness in Cosmetics. Through an integrated formulation strategy that governs our every choice -- from packaging to ingredients to delivery systems -- we seek to bring a deep respect to the process of body care.
First and foremost, this is our commitment to creating an extraordinary, unprecedented range of new and reformulated products that are inherently pure and safe, while expanding the efficacy and vibrantly healthy benefits of natural body care.
Formulated without parabens, harsh preservatives, synthetic fragrances or artificial colors, our products are made with science-based nutrients and wonderfully sensual, natural botanicals, and are designed to reflect your need for a pure and effective line of personal care products.
Additionally, our products are created with organic agriculture and long-term sustainability in mind. Choosing ingredients like organic essential oils, organic plant oils and organic botanical extracts serves a two-fold purpose: creating the best natural products available and producing a measurable expansion of organic acreage cultivation.

We want to always do business in a way that promotes long-term solutions to environmental problems, maintains the integrity of natural ecosystems, and conserves and improves the quality of air, water, and soil for our children's children. We can and will make a difference.
Reinvest In Our Community
Avalon knows the importance of keeping the heart in our business as we fulfill our desire to grow our fellowship with the larger world in which we work and live. Compassion, creativity, and willingness to take responsibility are the defining foundation of our community involvement, and this continues to shape our vision of the future and reflect the legacy of our company.
