What is the purpose of COSMOS certification?

COSMOS certification allows your organic or natural cosmetics to be commercialized worldwide

 

What are the key guarantees of COSMOS certified organic and natural cosmetics?

The COSMOS certification guarantees:

  • environmentally friendly production and processing processes respecting also human health.

  • development of the concept of green chemicals

  • responsible use of natural resources

  • respect of biodiversity

  • absence of petrochemical ingredient ( except for authorized preservatives): parabens, phenoxyethanol, perfumes and synthetic colorants

  • absence of GMO

  • recyclable packaging

How to get the COSMOS label on your products?

It is certification according to the international COSMOS standard or the private Ecocert standard which enables the labelling of your natural or organic cosmetics.
All the products marketed with the Ecocert logo have been verified by our teams: from composition to processing and packaging. Consumers are thus given a transparent information on the content in natural and organic ingredients displayed on the products.

Natural origin
All the ingredients are from natural origin except a restrictive approved ingredients list (including preservatives) autorized in small quantity.
On average, Ecocert certifies products contain 99% ingredients of natural origin.

Promoting Organic
A beauty care product is COSMOS ORGANIC certified only if:

  • 95% minimum of the plants it contains are organic

  • At least 20% of organic ingredients are present in the total formula (10% for rinse-off products)

Note: water or minerals are not regarded as "organic" for they are not from agriculture. Since water is a major component of numerous cosmetic formulas, it implies a dilution of the proportion of organic ingredients out of the total of the product. Thus a massage oil which does not contain water may display up to 100% of organic ingredients.

 

Who are the recipients of this organic certification?

Producers of raw materials, manufacturers, brands or any player of the cosmetics sector can apply for this certification.
