Act for a more sustainable cosmetics sector

Integrate environment protection into each stage of the production

Preserving biodiversity, promoting organic and renewable materials, employing green chemistry, encouraging better management of natural resources, emissions and waste, and using recyclable packaging.

Ensure the development of socially responsible sectors

Advising producers, enabling dignified working conditions, setting fair prices, and promoting long-term trade relations, developing healthy beauty products.

Safeguard the sector to cope with the complexity of the supply chain

Ensuring traceability from the origin of ingredients to the finished product, controlling quality throughout the production chain, and guaranteeing transparency in order to strengthen the bond of trust with your suppliers, customers and consumers.

Ecocert, the commitment to a more responsible cosmetics industry

Convinced that the impact that cosmetics have on health and the environment could be significantly improved, we have contributed since 2002 to the development of a more responsible cosmetics industry. In partnership with pioneering players in the sector, we have created the first standard for natural and organic cosmetics, then followed by the international COSMOS standard.
