All around the world there are health concerns regarding the presence of harmful chemicals within cosmetics that we use in our daily lives. Synthetic additives, harmful and toxic chemicals started public unease and regulatory bodies issued cosmetics directives to control cosmetics ingredients prior to their release into the consumer market.

Still, with many new products released into the market every season, it is hard to keep track of the safety of every cosmetics product. Some products still carry carcinogenic, allergen or irritating materials.

To solve the problem organic cosmetics manufacturers started to apply for organic certification issued by ICEA, USDA, BDIH, ECOCERT, ICEA, SOIL ASSOCIATION and finally COSMOS. By seeking for certified organic labeled products, end users of cosmetics products are protected from harmful effects of toxic hazards that may cause serious illnesses in the long term.
