What does our symbol mean?
Working with nature rather than against it, Soil Association Certification for cosmetics believe in organic alternatives. We make it simpler for you to choose skin-loving organic formulations that are just as effective without any ugly compromises.
Look for the Soil Association Certification logo on your products which guarantees organic and natural ingredients, sourced and manufactured using sustainable methods alongside:
- No animal testing
- Packaging and production methods which minimise the impact on the environment
- Protection of wildlife and biodiversity*
* The variety of plant and animal life in the world
Surely that’s a thing of beauty. For us and our planet.
Organic is at the heart of everything we do. We recognise that to encourage more people to try and buy organic, we need to reach out to new audiences. The natural cosmetics industry is booming, but in this unregulated sector, consumers have no way to know whether a natural product actually contains entirely natural ingredients.
To address this we also offer COSMOS natural certification for products which meet all of the COSMOS standards. COSMOS Natural is based on organic principles, but products do not have to contain any organic ingredients – although in practice many do. COSMOS Natural is most suitable for products containing a lot of ingredients which cannot be organic, such as water, salt or clay – for example toners, bath salts or face masks.
