LEVELS OF CERTIFICATION

We offer certification of natural, natural with organic portion and organic product from section of cosmetics, cleansing products and fragrances, based on ECOGEA standard.

There are three levels of certification. Specific conditions have to be met for a product to be included in one of three categories: natural, natural-organic (natural with organic portion) and organic. Composition of each product is checked in details during certification process.

Water is considered as being a natural-mineral ingredient and as such it cannot be calculated as organic. Only physically processed and chemically processed natural ingredients from agricultural source can be certified organic. To be considered as organic or with organic content each ingredient must be certified at accredited certification body. Ingredients from agricultural source are any plant, animal or microbial product derived from agriculture, aquaculture or is collected/harvested in wild.

  • Ingredients obtained from living or dead animals, unless naturally produced by them, such as honey, beeswax, milk, etc
  • Use of mineral oil and silicones in products certified as organic
  • Synthetic ingredients, which can be naturally harvested or produced with organic farming
