A harmonized standard for natural and organic cosmetics has, so far, just been a dream for many in the sector.
No official regulatory directive was existing, and we observed the proliferation of private standards providing different definitions. Each country had its own standard and its own definition of natural and organic ingredients.
The aim of COSMOS was to harmonise all these standards and to have an international standard for organic and natural cosmetics: The COSMetic Organic Standard. Since January 2017, COSMOS is now the most well-known label.
Croda has naturally turned to COSMOS standard transferring from Ecocert to COSMOS the approval of its ingredients. It’s manufacturing site Crodarom, expert in botanical ingredients, has also been certified as of 2012 to be able to suggest also organic certified ingredients
At Croda, two types of products can be found in the portfolio:
Natural approved ingredients: ingredients that do not contains raw materials from organic culture but are in conformity with the COSMOS standard rules.
