This new Cosmos label is European, it has been created by 5 organizations:
The objective of this new label is to standardize the specifications of organic cosmetics and thus offer the same guarantees to all European consumers.
This new label is a little more demanding than the Ecocert label, it imposes two new criteria:
Each certified organic product must contain:
The specifications also ensure that:
No, because cosmetics launched on the market before that date keep their previous certification. Avril certified organic products that you like will therefore keep the same formula and ingredients.
All Avril products have a label on the back of the packaging. Three logos can appear on our cosmetics:
Ecocert Cosmétique Biologique logo (for the majority of Avril products)
Qualité France logo (for eye and lip pencils) The specifications are similar to Ecocert's, except that it allows cochineal, an ingredient that permits to obtain very intense red pigments for lipsticks, for example .
Cosmos Organic logo (for new products launched after January 2017). Be careful, 2 certifications exist: "Organic" and "Natural", the latter being less demanding.
Note: some of our products do not have a label because they are not certified organic: this is the case of nail polishes and nail polish removers, these products do not exist in organic version yet.
