TRANSPARENCY


 

ECOCERT

Our Shea Butter is certified by ECOCERT, one of the largest organic certification organizations world-wide. In a conjunction with industry experts, consumers and governmental bodies the specifications for standards for „natural and organic cosmetics“ have been introduced in 2002.

ECOCERT is monitored by governmental facilities. Their label ensures not only the minimum requirements for natural and organic cosmetics regarding its quality but guarantees the genuine practice of environmental respect throughout the manufacturing process and the formulation of each product.

The basic principle of the ECOCERT standard imposes:

  1. The use of ingredients must be derived from renewable resources and that a minimum of 95% of the total ingredients must come from natural origin.
  2. For the natural and organic cosmetic label: A minimum of 95 % of all plant-based ingredients in the formula and a minimum of 10 % of all ingredients by weight must come from organic farming.
    For the natural cosmetic label: A minimum of 50 % of all plant-based ingredients in the formula and a minimum of 5 % of all ingredients by weight must come from organic farming.
