What is your standard for your healthy skin?
"Most products on the market today are made with chemicals that were introduced several decades ago. Since then, scientists have found that many of these chemicals are related to cancer, asthma, birth defects and fertility problems. Some of these chemicals are in products we use every single day - our shampoo, our soap, our furniture, our mattresses. In many cases, manufacturers don't even have to list their ingredients on their packages or websites, so there's no way for you to know what you're really getting." - EWG verified -
We do not hesitate to cooperate with several consumer protection organizations around the world to help consumers make better choices. The nonprofit environmental group EWG in the United States and the British Vegan Society. Canada's cert clean, European COSMOS, etc.

Physically processed agro-ingredients – may be plant, animal or microbial origin but no GMOs, no critically endangered species, only products of (not a part of) animals;
Chemically processed agro-ingredients – same as above, and the chemical treatments must respect the principles of Green Chemistry with the resulting ingredients complying with strict limitations of toxicity and biodegradability;
Companies must also ensure their packaging is minimised and is environmentally friendly and they must have an environmental and waste management plan for their factories.
