There are several labels that enable consumers to identify organic products. We have chosen Ecocert certification (see Ecocert) and we adhere to the Cosmébio charter (see Cosmébio). These organisations are both highly respected, and their quality and requirements are high:Ecocert certification gives consumers the guarantee that cosmetic products contain a high percentage of natural ingredients and a percentage of ingredients produced using organic agriculture methods. At least:
- 95% of all the ingredients in the product are of natural origin
- 95% of the product's plant ingredients are organic
- 10% of the overall ingredients in the final product must be organic (note: this relatively low percentage is justified by the presence of water in these products, a non-certifiable product that can represent over 80% of the product's overall composition).
These percentages are always indicated clearly on the packaging, according to the product's complete INCI formula.
The Cosmébio label:
Given certain shortcomings in regulations concerning natural cosmetology, an association of cosmeticsproducers, in collaboration with Ecocert, an independent certification organisation, elaborated specifications for ethical cosmetics in order to offer consumers cosmetic products that are efficient, non-toxic, and made from natural, certified-organic components.
