Organic certifications - what do they mean?


Natrue logotype                 

NaTrue is a European non-profit association committed to promoting and protecting natural and organic cosmetics worldwide. Certification is available in three different standards and they all include only natural and organic ingredients, soft manufacturing processes and environmentally friendly practices. Things that are not used: animal testing, synthetic fragrances and colours, GMO's, petroleum derived products, silicone oils and derivatives, irradiation of end products and botanical ingredients. The 3 levels of NaTrue certification are:

NaTrue Natural Cosmetics - product content must be at least 90% natural, but not necessarily organic

NaTrue Cosmetics With Organic Portions - at least 90% natural ingredients and at least 70% must come from certified, controlled organic farming and/or wild collection

Products that are 70-95% organic can be certified, but the cannot include the word "organic" in the product name and must state the percentage of organic ingredients in the product description. Ingredients must be grown and farmed without the use of pesticides, processed with approved "green chemistry" when modifying ingredients, bio-degradeable and free from GMO, parabens, petrochemical ingredients, propylene glycol and other potentially harming ingredients.

My skincare/makeup/haircare is organic but not certified, what does that mean?

If the product is certified organic according to any of the labels available, you are guaranteed that the product meets the standards for that label. But there are many beauty brands that choose not to certify their products for various reasons, e.g. cost reasons (certifications don't come cheap), practical reasons (more freedom to choose farmer/producer) or lack of certification that meet the own criterias. The finishing product may contain all natural and organic/certified organic ingredients without being certified. Such non-certified, all natural brands are REN Clean Skincare,  One Love Organics,  True Organic of Sweden and MOP e.g.
