*Black Tea Tree soap bar contains 85% organic ingredients. However, due to the presence of charcoal, it cannot be certified by the USDA National Organic Program.
A note about "Organic": Because of their chemistry, bar soaps can never reach the 95% level of organic content. Organic soap and skin care products are among the most misrepresented organic products. This has to do with formulation issues, labeling requirements, and a misrepresentation of the standards. All bar soaps, and most skin care products, fall short of the 95% organic mark. Bar soaps require sodium hydroxide (NaOH, or lye) for their production. Sodium hydroxide is on the allowed list of non-organic ingredients that can be used in making organic products, and it accounts for approximately 10-15% of the ingredients, by weight (not including water or salt and depending on the recipe). Even if every other ingredient in a bar soap were certified organic, the soap would never have an organic content of more than 90%, as this is the maximum level of organic content in a bar soap.
At OMphora, we maintain a minimum organic content level of 85% in all our bar soaps. We have also taken the additional step of becoming certified under the USDA National Organic Program.
A note about Hand washing: "Hand washing with soap or “hand washing” has been ranked the most cost-effective intervention for the worldwide control of disease. It could save more than a million lives a year from diarrheal diseases and prevent respiratory infections. In developed countries, hand washing is important in preventing the spread of viral infections; it also prevents the spread of hospital-acquired infections such as methicillin-resistant strains." from https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/full/10.2105/AJPH.2009.164160
