You will soon start seeing the Ecocert seal on our products, starting with our certified organic argan oil, our new certified natural Toning Mist and Eye Cream. In the coming months, as we phase in new packaging, all of our products will be certified natural and/or organic by Ecocert.
Based in France, Ecocert was the first certification body to develop standards for natural and organic cosmetics. Introduced in 2003, Ecocert evaluates every step in the chain of production, from the suppliers of raw materials, to the formula and packaging, to ensure a truly sustainable end result that consumers can rely on. Ecocert guarantees the absence of GMO, parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicon, PEG, synthetic perfumes and dyes, animal byproducts (unless naturally produced by them: milk, honey, etc.), as well as the biodegradable or recyclable nature of the packaging.
The standards are as follows:
For all products, 95% of ingredients must be of natural origin.
For products to be labeled "organic", a minimum of 95% of plant-based materials must be of organic origin.
For products to be labeled "natural", a minimum 50% of all plant-based materials must be of organic origin.

We have always believed in full transparency and have disclosed all ingredients and percentages of natural and organic. We realize that even this isn't often enough. We hope that this validation will help our customers feel confident that they are purchasing the highest quality products, safely and sustainably produced.
