COSMEBIO - COSMEBIO® is the association of French manufacturers of natural, organic and biocosmetic products. It unites all operators of this sector and numbers about 400 members in France and abroad. At least 10% of all ingredients of the total should be derived from crops cultivated on organic fields – the fact taken into account is that water and minerals, i.e. the main ingredients of cosmetic products, are natural elements not delivered from farming enterprises, and because of that, they cannot be certified as ‘organic’.
At least 95% of all herb and plant ingredients should be derived from crops cultivated on organic fields. COSMEBIO® has the right to use maximum 5% of synthetic ingredients – if they are not available in the natural form. The use of silicone, GMO, parabens, polyethylene glycol is prohibited.
