*What is " ECOCERT/COSMOS Certification" ?

ECOCERT Group owns a 75% global share of organic cosmetics certification. It is the world's famous trusted certification body, with a track record of certifying more than 1,500 companies and 27,000 products in 54 countries. The standards for organic cosmetics vary from country to country. In light of this situation, certification bodies from five European countries including ECOCERT have jointly formulated the unified standard "COSMOS" for organic cosmetics. This is based on the ECOCERT cosmetic certification, which has the strictest examination level in the world.

COSMOS is an abbreviation for Cosmetic Organic Standard. To promote sustainable production and consumption, the organic/natural cosmetics industry uses concise rules according to the principles of prevention and safety at all stages, from the production of raw materials to the distribution of finished products.

*Certification mark

Regarding the use of the ECOCERT logo and the indication of the ingredients that support COSMOS certification, the cosmetics prescribed by the customer must be certified by Ecocert Greenlife S.A.S separately even when using ingredients that comply with COSMOS cosmetic certification.
