We have started the process of certifying our organic skincare products with COSMOS to get what we consider the highest organic certification standard possible in Europe.
The COSMOS-standard defines the criteria that companies must meet to ensure consumers that their products are genuine organic or natural cosmetics produced to the highest feasible sustainability practices.
The COSMOS-standard has been developed at the European and international level by BDIH (Germany), COSMEBIO & ECOCERT (France), ICEA (Italy) and SOIL ASSOCIATION (UK) who are the founders of the COSMOS-standard AISBL (an international non-profit association registered in Belgium) in order to define common requirements and definitions for organic and/or natural cosmetics.
The COSMOS-standard is managed by a not-for-profit, international and independent association – the Brussels based COSMOS-standard AISBL.
The founding members (BDIH - Germany, Cosmebio - France, Ecocert - France, ICEA - Italy and the Soil Association - UK) continue to bring their combined expertise to the continuous development and management of the COSMOS-standard.
The COSMOS-standard signature is a consumer guarantee for organic and natural cosmetics that you can trust. To date over 22,000 products in 70 countries carry the COSMOS ORGANIC or COSMOS NATURAL signature. Over 10,000 ingredients carry the COSMOS CERTIFIED signature. Over 7,000 raw materials carry the COSMOS APPROVED signature.
