All NAVEEN products have received Cosmos Organic Certification by the British Soil Association and Halal Certification by the Taiwan Halal Integrity Development Association.
The Creation of NAVEEN
NAVEEN is the inspiration of Taiwan based natural skincare formulator Karen Kung, a mother of two who has lived and breathed health and wellbeing for the past 25 years. Frustrated by the lack of regulations around natural and organic globally, it is personally important to her that she brings a brand to consumers that mirrors our principles of clarity, honesty and responsibility. Hence NAVEEN does not cut corners and they take time to research every ingredient. They've spent years perfecting their uniquely NAVEEN formula of organic and vegan ingredients to provide a safe and all-natural solution.
Why we selected NAVEEN
In our quest to select brands that meet our strict criteria we needed ones that not only have fantastic products but have also gone the extra mile when it comes to delivering Viva Tree's customers peace of mind. NAVEEN have gone that extra mile and made sure that all their products undergo regular stringent testing and have been Cosmos Organic certified, one of the world's most respected international certification bodies for organic materials. NAVEEN didn't stop there, they also gained Halal Certification for their entire range and have ensured their products are 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free. In addition to their certifications their business ethics are ones that we are proud to represent. Listed below are some of the key areas that led us to select NAVEEN as one of our exclusive brand partners.
True to their Formulas
All NAVEEN formulations are one of a kind and developed from scratch by Karen who has been creating natural skincare products for more than 2 decades.
Only the highest quality ingredients and plant actives are used in their premium formulations. Careful extraction processes are chosen using the least amount of mechanical and solvent processing, to ensure the purity and performance quality of plant oils and extracts are maintained.
As a result, we believe NAVEEN products are the purest skin care it is possible to achieve.

True to their Certification
Confusing spin, hype and green-washing is rife in the skin care industry, but that is not Viva Tree's or NAVEENS way.
We stand by the quality and purity of products and it’s important to us that you, our customers are assured that you are choosing safe, certified organic and effective skin care.
There is no specific regulation in Taiwan protecting the word ‘organic’. Products can be labelled as ‘organic’ without any requirement to prove this through certification. The only guarantee of authenticity is to look for a third party, world recognised organic certifier’s logo.
To prove their commitment to consumers, they have sought third party certification of their products. ALL of which have received COSMOS ORGANIC Certification by British SOIL ASSOICATION & HALAL Certification by Taiwan Halal Integrity Development Association.
GIVING BACK and Sharing the True love
NAVEEN believes even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual’s quality of life. Selfless giving is a key component to many spiritual and religious belief systems. They have taken action in line with their spiritual beliefs by donating their products to different Welfare and service centres in Taiwan.
As a nature-based skin care company, NAVEEN are forever grateful for the privilege of enjoying the earth’s resources. Naturally, they consider it their duty to care for these resources in the same way we care for our own bodies; that’s why they are dedicated to using ethical & responsible business practices.
Quality Comes First
They use certified organic ingredients and seek the highest possible medicinal quality to ensure ingredients are not tainted with harmful pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilisers. All ingredients are sourced for their quality and sustainability and are organic when available.
NAVEEN is 100% Vegan & Cruelty Free
NAVEEN never have and never will engage in animal testing and they oppose the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). It is our conviction that GMOs wreak havoc on our agricultural and natural systems. We will always find sources of raw materials that do not contain GMOs and only utilise suppliers who are in compliance with this. We want to bring across the message that it is everyone’s responsibility to care for the environment, planet and the welfare of animals. Their entire range is Vegan & Cruelty Free.
They Use Considerate Packaging
NAVEEN packaging is not only beautiful, but recyclable & reusable too. They choose to use recyclable packaging that does not destroy virgin forests, pollute rivers with chlorine and end up in a landfill. They are committed to finding new materials all the time that have a positive impact on the earth throughout their lifecycle and they continually strive for even better packaging solutions.
Their Suppliers and Manufacturers Have High Environmental Standards
They have gone all the way down the line; from production to end use and have chosen to work with companies who are allies in producing eco-friendly, organic, fairly traded goods and take care of their employees.
They take a simple approach to skincare and believe a few exceptional quality products are sufficient for all your skin health needs. Each product is also multi-purpose to minimise the amount of skincare products you need, to make optimal use of resources and to minimise waste.
