What does CPTG mean?
What Does CPTG Stand For?
“CPTG” stands for “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” and is a registered trademark of dōTERRA.
What does CPTG mean?
This trademarked testing process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy.
Why The CPTG Trademark?
To break it down into basic words.
Doterra wanted to create a trademark for their testing process and product that comes with a promise.
The promise of pure oils with no artificial fillers, high quality products from a sustainable source.
The “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” is simply part of DoTERRA’S trademarked testing process to ensure you get the quality oils you are promised.
What is CPTG Again??
C – What is certified?
Like supplements, essential oils are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
The “Certified” in CPTG is to let you know, just like Certified Organic products, Doterra Oils have been through a testing process that does now allow any foreign chemical to pass through and be sold to consumers. This includes pesticides.
P – What is PURE?
Pure Essential Oil of course! so again, no nasty filler liquid or additives that are not pure and from a sustainable, ethical source.
TG – What is Therapeutic Grade?
This is where a lot of people get frustrated.
I understand this is a sore point for some in the industry.
Here’s how I would like to reason with anyone claiming that the CPTG trademark is “Fake” or otherwise.
Firstly, companies like Doterra and Young Living have put Essential Oil right out there, if you are a competitor – you should be having the time of your life!
However, a lot of people still think Essential Oil is just a trendy way to make your home smell nice.
Without education, people still struggle to understand what is just an “Air freshener” for your diffuser (i.e. $3 Oil at Kmart) and what has actual therapeutic value.
Yes, if I am spending $20 – $50 on a bottle of Essential Oil, I EXPECT it to have therapeutic properties.
Doterra make it incredibly clear with the term “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” that you are receiving a high quality product.
