Xango Recognized as Champion of Green Personal Care

LEHI, Utah, Nov. 30, 2011 -- Today, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a coalition of more than 150 nonprofit organizations working to protect the health of consumers and workers by eliminating dangerous chemicals from cosmetics, recognized global wellness leader XANGO, LLC as a Champion in the area of green personal care for its GlimpseŽ and Juni by XANGOŽ branded products. In achieving Champion status, XANGO fulfilled all the goals set out by the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a voluntary pledge to avoid chemicals banned by health agencies outside the U.S. and to fully disclose product ingredients.

"As a company driven by a social purpose, XANGO takes very seriously its obligation to encourage sustainability, health and wellness in every aspect of its business," said XANGO Founder, Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity. "When it comes to personal care products, our Glimpse and Juni lines prove that consumers do not have to sacrifice premium results to benefit their own health and safeguard the environment. We're excited to be part of a meaningful movement that changes the consumer mindset and leads the market toward a healthier future."

Mia Davis, organizing director of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and coordinator of the new Safe Cosmetics Business Network, applauded XANGO "for being a Champion and for demonstrating that it's possible to make personal care products that far exceed current safety standards in the United States." Davis added, "The company is a great example of making safe products part of a successful business model; trends demonstrate natural and safe cosmetics make up the fastest-growing segment of the $50 billion cosmetics industry."

More details are available in a new report released today, "Market Shift: The story of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics and the growth in demand for safe cosmetics," which describes the seven-year project during which time the nonprofit organizations that make up the Campaign worked with companies in a unique partnership to raise the bar for safer personal care products.

XANGO's GlimpseŽ and Juni by XANGOŽ personal care lines target specific skin, hair and body needs from anti-aging to dry skin and scalp. At the core of the product formulas are plant-based ingredients starring the "Queen of Fruits," the mangosteen from Southeast Asia. Rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrients such as xanthones, the mangosteen enjoys a long history of use for the skin as a calming agent in Southeast Asian tradition. XANGO, a recognized category creator as the first company to bring mangosteen to a global market in the form of premium beverage XANGOŽ Juice, continues to lead development of mangosteen-based solutions for the entire body - inside and out.

"XANGO's commitment to apply green chemistry and avoid known toxins in our personal care brands is a stand we choose to take for our consumers and the people they love," said XANGO Senior Vice President and Creator of the Glimpse and Juni brands Beverly Hollister. "As a global wellness leader and a category creator, XANGO delights in introducing mangosteen and other naturally-based wellness products to the world. At the same time, we pledge to provide the market with innovative solutions that are responsibly produced and have a positive impact on our environment."

Today's announcement marked the completion of the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, though the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics will continue to advocate for safe, healthy products for all consumers by working with a broad range of companies in the new Safe Cosmetics Business Network and by working with voters and Congressional leaders to pass the Safe Cosmetics Act. If passed, this bill would update the 1938 cosmetics regulations.
