Contrarily to conventional cosmetics which are composed of ingredients from the petrochemical industry, synthetic colourants and preservatives, organic cosmetics turn to more natural ingredients especially from organic farming.
Avril’s organic cosmetics are certified by Ecocert, a French organism of inspection and certification of cosmetics. It guarantees the ecological characteristic of products for the consumer.
This is why a product certified organic by Ecocert does not contain any genetically modified organism, paraben, phenoxyethanol, nano particles, silicon, glycol polythene, synthetic perfumes or colourants. Ingredients from animals (except those produced naturally such as honey, milk…) are also forbidden.
Moreover, Ecocert’s Organic Cosmetics label guarantees that :
- 95% minimum of the ingredients are natural or of natural origin
- 95% minimum of the vegetal ingredients are produced by organic farming
- 10% minimum of the total ingredients are produced by organic farming
To conclude, the level of pollution from the production methods must be as low as possible and the packaging must be biodegradable or recyclable.
