This includes the continuous risk assessment of our processes. The aim is to understand and avoid potential risks for our customers' applications in the cosmetics, food, or pharmaceuticals.

Natural cosmetic standards COSMOS & NATRUE

The COSMOS Standard defines certification requirements for organic and natural cosmetic products in Europe. It is one of the most important certification standards for natural cosmetics and is recognized by the cosmetics industry worldwide. It is managed by a not-for-profit, international, and independent association – the Brussels based COSMOS-standard AISBL. We offer a range of COSMOS approved as well as organic COSMOS certified products. NATRUE (the international natural and organic cosmetics association) is an international non-profit organization located in Brussels. Its mission is the worldwide promotion and protection of natural and organic cosmetics. Since 2021, we have a list of products also attested as compliant to the NATURE standard.

ISO 16128

The ISO 16128 guidelines establish technical definitions and criteria for natural and organic cosmetics and allow the degree of natural or organic origin to be determined numerically, making it easy to compare individual materials. We offer information about ISO 16128 conformity of all our products.
