At Pureté Bio all our cosmetic products are certified by the world’s leading international certification authority: ECOCERT Greenlife (the founder of COSMOS – Cosmetic Organic Standard).
The international COSMOS label is the ultimate reference for natural and organic cosmetics. This label is based on four key principles.
First and foremost, the label focuses on the use of natural products that promote ingredients from organic agriculture and respect biodiversity. The use of GGOs is forbidden, as is the use of petro-chemical ingredients that can be harmful to health, such as parabens, phenoxyethanol, aromatics and synthetic colorants. In addition, the products cannot be tested on animals.
The label also encourages the responsible use of natural resources and respect for the environment, including the possible use of recyclable packaging.
The label further guarantees the use of ecologically responsible methods of production that are safe for human society. The importance of developing and integrating ‘green chemistry’ into these methods of production is heavily emphasised.
These guidelines relate to the delivery, creation, production, marketing and monitoring of organic cosmetic products. Finally, the COSMOS organic label indicates that at least 20% of the total ingredients come from organic agriculture and at least 95% of the PPAIs (PPAI= Physically Processed Agro-Ingredient) are of organic origin. It is with pride that we display this much-respected label on our products – because what is good for nature is good for us as well.
