Whole Foods Market has been lauded for its beauty department standards over the years. In 2012, the company was named “the leading national retailer” in personal care product safety by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The grocer was also named runner-up in the Sustainable Beauty Awards’ “Sustainable Leadership” category in 2014. The retailer also set its own standards for organic labeling on personal care products, as there are no mandatory government standards for the “organic” label claim on body care products.
