Proudly Certified Organic
Our raw materials are responsibly sourced and certified by COSMOS which stands for "Cosmetic Organic and Natural Standard", and sets certification requirements for organic and natural cosmetics products in Europe. The standard is recognized globally by the cosmetic industry.
By getting our range certified, it ensures that not only have we gone through the rigorous standards to become compliant but for our customers it’s an assurance that our products are formulated using raw materials that come from sustainable farming, containing potent bio-active plant botanicals and superfruit extracts, that are grown, harvested and processed sustainably and ethically without chemicals, synthetic pesticides or herbicides.
We are avid supporters of using natural products, avoiding putting toxins into our bodies whenever possible. In the past we have been frustrated by the dissemination of inaccurate and incomplete information about skin care products and this was one of the driving forces behind designing this ethical skin care brand.
There is a significant time and organisational effort in being certified organic, this took almost six months to achieve.
We must provide the Soil Association with certificates of organic status for every single supplier we use during the year. All the ingredients are traceable back to the field that they were grown in. We also need to submit the cleaning products that we use for approval. To be accepted by the Soil Association, suppliers certificates must either be issued by the Soil Association or by a body that the Soil Association has investigated and recognises as equally rigorous in its testing and certification.
We must provide declarations from every supplier of all ingredients, organic and non-organic (where organic is not available), to prove that they are GM-free. We have also invested time and effort in sourcing our bottles - our suppliers are in Europe and no air miles have been clocked up. Our formulas, labeling and production methods are examined regularly, as is our production facility and audits of our organic ingredient for quality and integrity.
The Soil Association is a registered charity based in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1946, it has over 27,000 members today. Its activities include campaign work on issues including opposition to intensive farming, support for local purchasing and public education on nutrition as well the certification of organic food.
The Soil Association is the leading organic certifying body offering a huge range of organic and sustainable certification schemes across food, farming, catering, health and beauty, textiles and forestry.
The Soil Association, its standards and activities, and the practice of organic farmers are all based on a set of internationally recognised principles... the Principle of Health - Organic agriculture should sustain and enhance the health of soil, plant, animal and human as one and indivisible.
It is little known that organic skin care is not legally regulated in the same way as organic food and drink. Skin care and toiletries can be called organic and natural, even if they contain a tiny percentage of organically grown ingredients and/or are mostly synthetic. The only way to be sure that the product you are using is genuinely organic is to use products that are certified by a recognised and independent organic body. Watch out for fake logos too!
