Details about ecocert certification :

Ecocert certification has defined a level of requirements that is more strict than that imposed by current legislation on cosmetic products. It ensures respect for consumers, extensive use of the highest ecological quality natural substances, as well as true environmental protection practices throughout the production process.

Proven certifications
The Alpaderm care range has passed all the necessary dermatological and microbiological tests. It meets the various legal requirements, both Swiss and European.

The following text is printed on the label of certified products: “Ecological and organic cosmetic certified by ECOCERT GREENLIFE according to ECOCERT standard available at http://cosmetics.ecocert.com. This is the only valid proof of certification. Organically grown ingredients are indicated by an asterisk in the INCI* list, where it is written: “organically grown ingredients”. The percentage of ingredients of natural origin is clearly indicated on the label.

Here is an overview of the requirements detailed in Ecocert specifications:

At least 95% of the ingredients must be of natural origin in order to encourage producers to avoid petrochemical ingredients, and instead to use primary ingredients from agro-resources transformed via processes that respect the environment.
Artificial aromas, colouring agents, artificial colours, silicone, and glycol are all forbidden. Only a few required synthetic ingredients that are not yet available from natural sources, are authorised.
In order to verify compliance with Ecocert certification requirements, the producer is inspected twice a year by an Ecocert auditor. These inspections focus on checking products, traceability, packaging and labelling.

Certified operators receive a licence which authorises the company to produce and/or distribute certified cosmetics, accompanied by a product certificate.

*INCI : as of January 1, 1998, a European directive has required a declaration of cosmetic product components according to the INCI system (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients). Components must be clearly indicated on the product label, with the first items listed being those that constitute the largest proportion of the product; those representing less than 1% may then be listed in random order.
