Certification

ECOCERT is a voluntary standard, which certifies cosmetics products, attesting to the natural origin of the product. ECOCERT is present in more than 80 countries, performing the regular inspection and certification of eco-products.

In order to earn a certificate, the product must contain at least 95% natural ingredients.

The remaining 5% of ingredients are strictly regulated, monitoring the presence of minerals, organic acids, and other materials. A minimum of 95% of the plant-based ingredients (for example, plant extracts and vegetable oils) must be biologically certified.

ECOCERT prohibits the use of synthetic perfumes, synthetic preservatives (for example, parabens), mineral oil, propylene glycol, and other synthetic raw materials.

A certified product is clearly marked on the packaging with an ECOCERT symbol, allowing the consumer to distinguish a truly natural product from the rest.
