Little by little, we favor short circuits, products from organic farming and local producers. We are witnessing a real return to the sources. The costumer becomes a consumer and want transparency about the ingredients of the products he buys.
In cosmetics, the use of controversial ingredients makes talking. 46%* of cosmetic products contain harmful or suspected harmful components for the skin and the environment.
But how do you know if the composition of the product is healthy and which company we can trust?
Many labels and certification bodies exist to guide the consumer in his choices. Cosmebio and Ecocert are good references thanks to precise specifications aimed at offering products that are holy and respectful of the environment. Their mission according to the various charters is to guarantee the absence of pesticides in the products, a superior quality of the raw materials resulting from the organic farming, a percentage of ingredients of natural origin always superior to 95% and an irreproachable traceability .
