In addition, the Ecocert Organic Cosmetics label guarantees that:
- 95% minimum of the total ingredients are natural or of natural origin.
- 95% minimum of the plant ingredients of the formula are from organic farming.
- 10% minimum of the total ingredients are from organic farming.
Finally, the manufacturing processes must be as polluting as possible, and the packaging biodegradable or recyclable.
