Is there a cosmetic label for our body milk and why I decided not to use it? Currently, it is the great fashion of the labile products to show paws to consumers. You have to know that there are several cosmetic labels:
• écocert • BDIH
• Natrue • Slow Cosmétique
• and many others
Label criteria for organic cosmetics
• Ingredients must be of natural or organic origin including water
• Prohibition of use of petroleum derivatives, GMOs, certain preservatives, synthetic dyes and synthetic perfume
• 10% of the ingredients must be organic on the finished product.
For certain labels specialized for natural and organic cosmetic products
• ban on testing on animals • ban on the use of ingredients derived from animals dead
• prohibition of synthetic dye
• prohibition of use of synthetic perfume
• no silicone • no petroleum derivative
• ingredient of natural and organic originMany brands play with words and color codes to mislead consumers.
It is a question of subtlety that we will understand through an example of a rose-based cream for the face.
Some labels ask that the rose be cultivated in a biological way, that is to say with a restriction of pesticides.
nevertheless, I can transform these rose petals chemically in liquid or solid form. At the end I get a biological finished product for the consumer. (Ecocert)
If I use organic rose petals that I mix directly in a blender with some water and organic beeswax. I get a biological and natural finished product without chemical transformation with a more or less unsightly appearance. This time we respect the charter of some label as BDIH.
There is also the Cosmetic Slow which is a more refined and balanced vision of cosmetic products. We find chemical components with natural and organic components in the spirit of Ying & Yang. We put ourselves at the heart of the formulation and the man, nature, ethics and pragmatism.
