March is B Corp month, and several brands have announced they are now officially certified. Certified B Corporations are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative future economy. In the journey to become B Corp, a company’s entire social and environmental impact is measured and verified to meet high standards of performance, transparency and accountability.

NEOM Organic’s CEO Oliver Mendell said of their certification:

NEOM was founded with a purpose to not only provide natural based and sustainable wellbeing products but to also create a business that would make a positive impact on the world and we are so proud to see our vision coming to fruition. As a B Corp certified company, we are held responsible for meeting high standards of social and environmental impact which have all been measured and verified. It was a long and challenging journey to get there but it’s set us on a trajectory to make a meaningful impact.

The brand’s mission is to be a friend to hair, hairstylists, the planet, and communities and they view the B Corp certification as the seal of approval that they kept their promise.
