Soil Association certificates COSMOS Organic and Natural to Fragàncies del Montseny cosmetic products
From now on, NAIADA line (personal hygiene for adults and babies, body and massage oils and aromatherapeutic fragrances), has the backing of the COSMOS standard, certified by the renowned British Soil Association.
Standard Cosmos has been created by five European organizations with its own rules for the certification of natural cosmetics and / or organic, in the absence of European legislation, in order to have a common standard that certifies the reality on the ingredients. These are the five certification organisms that can verify compliance with the COSMOS standard: Soil Association, ICEA, Cosmebio, BDIH and Ecocert.
In addition, there are two product categories: COSMOS ORGANIC and COSMOS NATURAL. Cosmos Organic certified organic products, while Cosmos Natural certifies products with mostly Natural content less organic content. NAIADA from Fragàncies del Montseny has both certifications, depending on each product. For instance, all our body and massage oils are 100% organic, so certified as COSMOS ORGANIC, while hygiene products and fragrances are certified as COSMOS NATURAL. It should be noted that Organic is defined as content that comes from certified organic agriculture, while Natural means the ingredients come from nature.
The COSMOS standard also provides a great concern for the preservation of the planet, so it is very strict in accepting any packaging material that may harm the environment. The production process is also controlled, as well as the spaces where the ingredients are processed and handled, and of course, the recycling of all materials used. Therefore, one of the initial certification requirements is to present a consistent and demonstrable Environmental Plan.
