When a product is certified by EcoCert, it means the item has met the strict standards set for its specific category. EcoCert is an inspection and certification body established in France in 1991 by agronomists (those who study the science and technology of producing and using plants) who were aware of the need to develop environmentally friendly agriculture and the importance of recognising those committed to sustainable development in production.
Product categories open for certification include natural and organic cosmetics, natural and organic home perfumes, natural cleaning products, fair trade, ecological outdoor areas, organic textiles, eco-sustainable golf course, reforestation and solidarity, organic and ecological spa, ecological and recycled textiles, climate commitment and biodiversity commitment.
EcoCert has invested more than 10 years in a harmonisation project for cosmetic standards with European partners, BDIH (Germany), the Soil Association (UK), ICEA (Italy) and COSMEBIO (France). EcoCert has become a benchmark in organic certification worldwide.
In the EU, EcoCert is accredited by the Cofrac (French Accreditation Committee). In the USA, EcoCert is accredited by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) for the National Organic Program (NOP) and in Japan; EcoCert is accredited by the MAFF (Agricultural Department) for the Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS)
Companies voluntarily request EcoCert certification to prove:
- Control and traceability throughout the supply chain.
- Commitment to environmental protection.
- Integrity of raw materials and ingredients.
- High standards within the specific industry such as food or cosmetics.
TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare is certified by EcoCert, a distinction that very few products — even those labelled as “organic” — can claim. True Elements® Skincare products are derived from various seaweeds and are abundant in natural minerals that are well absorbed by skin. The entire premium skincare range is formulated with a combination of ingredients that work synergistically to offer remarkable benefits.
