Both Transparency and Sustainability are fundamental values of ours.
We have full visibility on every part of our supply chain - from the beginning of the process, where the ingredient is farmed and sourced - right until the end of the process, where the product is in its finished form.
Due to the lack of resources allocated to Government Regulatory bodies - unsubstantiated and unverified claims are commonplace within the beauty industry, making trusting a product or brand incredibly difficult.
We want to remove all ambiguity around both our claims and formulations - this is why we opted to formulate under the COSMOS Standard.
The COSMOS Standard is the harmonisation of the worlds strictest Independent Cosmetic Regulatory bodies and it involves -
RESPONSIBLE AND ETHICAL RAW INGREDIENT SOURCING –
- Raw ingredients only permitted when organic farming has been implemented.
- Raw ingredient suppliers must be inspected by an independent accredited third party in accordance with COSMOS Regulations.
- Validation of raw material quality and sourcing in accordance with global ethical standards.
- Strict yearly auditing implemented by regulatory bodies.
IMPLEMENTATION OF 'GREEN CHEMISTRY' PROCESSES –
- Manufacturing and production processes must integrate and expand on 'Green Chemistry' concept.
- No tolerance of water wastage or by-products in the respect of bio-diversity.
- No Animal Testing.
VALID, AUTHENTIC AND TRANSPARENT CLAIMS –
- All labels reviewed by multiple international regulatory bodies to ensure compliance.
- No misleading claims, all claims verified.
- The only international standard developed specifically for natural beauty products.
