Our commitment to COSMOS

ECOCERT Greenlife has invested more than 10 years in the harmonisation project for cosmetics standards with our European partners, BDIH (Germany), the Soil Association (UK), ICEA (Italy) and COSMEBIO (France).

As a result of this harmonisation process, the COSMOS standard, launched in 2011, aims to replace the existing certifications.

To achieve this, as of 1 January 2017 all new products submitted by our clients must be certified in accordance with the COSMOS standard. Existing products will be able to retain their certification in accordance with the ECOCERT standard.


A great success for COSMOS at Biofach Vivaness

This year, the founding members of COSMOS shared a single booth at the Biofach trade fair.

The shared COSMOS booth was a great success: it was a strong signal to players in the organic and natural cosmetics field, and more generally to all visitors to the trade fair, about our commitment!

Through a number of conferences, as well as during more informal occasions while gathering for an aperitif, we had the opportunity to share our vision and to consider the future prospects offered by this unique international standard.

We took the opportunity presented by this event to explain the importance of the year 2016, which is the last year of the transition during which our clients can develop new products in accordance with the ECOCERT standard.
