What are the benefits of cosmetics with the ECOCERT icon ?
ECOCERT: an inspection and certification body for sustainable development. Founded in 1991 in France, it conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world.
Guaranteeing purity and quality, the ECOCERT certificate is both the most stringent and prestigious standard among the manufacturers of natural and organic cosmetics.
It establishes requirements for formulations of manufactured products containing natural ingredients and for the quality of vegetable raw materials. The use of animal ingredients, refined petroleum products, and the practice of animal testing are prohibited.
Organic ingredients used in cosmetics must comply with ECOCERT requirements:
- Seeds of plants are not subjected to genetic modification.
- Chemical fertilizers are not used on farms.
- Pesticides are not used. Pest control is carried out with the help of natural enemies or non-toxic alternatives approved by ECOCERT.
Products are manufactured and stored in eco-friendly premises.
Special documentation procedures allow you to track the production of cosmetics, from quality raw materials and packaging to its final delivery to the consumer.
Twice a year, ECOCERT conducts an inspection of production lines to confirm that all of its requirements are being carried out. ECOCERT not only regulates the components of its cosmetic products, but the entire production process.
Products certified by Ecocert are eco-friendly as well as the enterprise which produce it.
