What You Should Know
Avalon Organics began in 1994 with the goal of providing environmentally conscientiousness products that also promote health. In order to uphold their commitment to “consciousness in cosmetics,” they claim to use only vegetarian and chemical-free ingredients in all of their products. Stated goals include product purity, long-term sustainability, and promotion of organic agriculture.
Avalon Organics offers a full range of body and skin care products including cleansers, soaps, shampoos, and moisturizers. They claim to firm skin and reduce wrinkles. However, they do not claim to promote weight loss.
The company claims to actively promote a smaller carbon footprint, thereby helping to preserve the environment and conserve resources. They recycle whenever possible and purchase recycled paper for office use. Their facilities are solar powered and they seek opportunities to plant trees and reinvest in the community.

While Avalon Organics demonstrates an interest in environmentally safe and natural products, they do not offer any weight loss claims or goals. Products claim to firm skin and reduce wrinkles, but no evidence is offered to support these claims. The focus of the company website is on the environmental impact of the company and its products, while little discussion is offered concerning the effectiveness of the product for the consumer.
The company mission statement lists health, the environment, and organic agriculture as primary goals. Avalon Organics purportedly seeks to promote all three of these goals by using only organic vegetarian ingredients, manufacturing in solar powered facilities, and promoting “consciousness in cosmetics,” a phrase which is used throughout the website to describe their methodology. While products claim to be safe and pure, they do not promote weight loss and do not offer photographic evidence of product effectiveness.
