The main goal is to uphold the inspection and certification of organic and ecological products, eco-friendly systems and respect for the environment throughout the production chain.
Today, over 1,600 companies, and more than 25,000 products sold in more than 45 countries are certified under the COSMOS standard.
The Core Principles of Ecocert and COSMOS are:
Promoting the use of products from organic agriculture, and respecting biodiversity.
Using natural resources responsibly and respecting the environment.
Using processing and manufacturing that are clean and respectful of human health and environment.
Integrating and developing the concept of “Green Chemistry” instead of using petrochemicals.
Providing transparency for consumers.
The COSMOS standard categories regarding the processing of ingredients.
Must contain physically processed agro-ingredients, organic agriculture that reflects pure or allows simple processing.
Chemically processed agro-ingredients, certifiable by using agricultural organic raw materials and manufacturing processes that are clean and authorised.
Water is not certifiable, and must comply with hygienic standards.
Minerals and ingredients of mineral origin are not certifiable and require clear environmental rules in their use, and in further processing.
If there are no natural alternatives, other ingredients MAY be allowed.
COSMOS products are labelled either:
“COSMOS Organic” (Containing 95%+ Organic Ingredients), OR “COSMOS Natural” (Containing 75%+ Organic Ingredients)
The PÜRE Collection are proud to produce and manufacture in accordance with COSMOS Organic strict standards.
This means that our products all contain at least 95% Organic ingredients.
Founded in France in 1991, specialising in the certification of organic agricultural products ECOCERT were the first certification body to develop standards for “natural and organic cosmetics”, they become a benchmark in organic certification worldwide, winning the confidence of consumers and professionals.
The ECOCERT standard is to inspect ingredients, manufacturing processes and packaging to ensure that everything is compliant.
ECOCERT will only approve the use of “green chemicals” and accredit products that meet its strict criteria.
To ensure an environmentally friendly product, ECOCERT promotes the use of ingredients derived from renewable resources and production and manufacturing processes that are environmentally safe.
