What is COSMOS?

COSMOS is a certification program for organic and natural cosmetics. It is managed by a non-profit, international, and independent association called COSMOS-standard AISBL, based in Brussels.

The COSMOS-standard defines the criteria that companies must meet to ensure consumers that their products are genuine organic or natural cosmetics produced to the highest feasible sustainability practices. The criteria cover a range of aspects, including the use of natural and organic ingredients, the avoidance of certain harmful chemicals, and the promotion of environmentally friendly production processes. To obtain COSMOS certification, companies must follow the certification process outlined by the authorized Certification Bodies
