NATURAL AND ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
Many Naturopathica products and ingredients are audited and certified by Ecocert, the most recognized and oldest independent natural and organic cosmetic certification body in the world. Adding the Ecocert seal to a Naturopathica product ensures that it has gone through a rigorous review process, from ingredient sourcing and formulation to manufacturing and packaging.
ECOCERT PRODUCT CERTIFICATION
To achieve certification, our products must pass the following criteria:
Ingredient Approval. Ecocert considers the safety, sourcing, processing or manufacturing of each ingredient and any preservatives used to preserve the raw material. All ingredients must be derived from renewable resources and manufactured with environmentally friendly processes.
Formula Approval. Ecocert re-confirms that all ingredients are approved, checks the process through which the formulation was manufactured, and determines if the required amount of natural and organic ingredients were used in the formulation. For organic certification, a minimum of 50% of natural ingredients must be certified organic.
Label Approval. Ecocert signs off on all labels before printing to ensure that all ingredients are listed and that the Ecocert statements are in accordance to their standards.
Manufacturing & Packaging Approval. All packaging must be submitted to Ecocert to ensure environmental compliance. In addition, the manufacturing facility must have an environmental plan in place that includes recycling, waste management, energy efficiency and transport management. Inspection occurs once a year with surprise visits possible at any time. For more information on the Ecocert certification process, visit: http://cosmetics.ecocert.com
