Peace of Mind
ZolaTerra® makes a conscious decision to seek highly respected, well documented, and verifiable certifications regarding product safety for humans, animals, and the environment.
While we know how safe and pure our products are, we believe that independent certification of the safety and content of ZolaTerra® demonstrates our commitment to safe products! We want our world to be clean AND safe!
Unlike other "green" products in the market, ZolaTerra® is the only plant-based, biodegradable, food safe cleaning product line certified with the NSF Non-Food Compound Product Registration, USDA Certified Biobased Product designation and contributes towards LEED certification points & Materials and Resources Credits.

CCIC Leaping Bunny
The Leaping Bunny program represents the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC), a large global alliance between animal rights and cruelty free groups. This alliance has made a conscious effort to establish an international standard for the term ‘cruelty free’ on cosmetic and cleaning products. The Leaping Bunny standard means neither ZolaTerra®, nor any of our suppliers will conduct, commission or be a party to any animal testing with any of the ingredients in our products.
PETA Beauty without Bunnies
Cruelty Free and Vegan (PETA Beauty without Bunnies), PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) was founded in 1980. The ‘Beauty without Bunnies’ program is designed to partner with companies who make products without harming any animals or using anything from animals.
ZolaTerra® has gone one step further and pledged to produce only vegan products, which means no beeswax, lanolin or other products that animals make.
USDA Certified Biobased Product
The USDA BioPreferred® Program is designed to reduce reliance on petrochemical and petroleum products while encouraging new markets for farm commodities. This is the perfect partnership for ZolaTerra® since all our products are plant based.
Sustainability is key to our products' performance and existence and the partnership with USDA BioPreferred Program helps us support this effort in a broad way.
