What the COSMOS Natural -standard covers

The standard divides the type of ingredients used in cosmetic products into five categories and specifies the requirements for each.  Here they are with some of the key standards:


  • Physically processed agro-ingredients – There is no limitation for organic percentage. Only simple physical processes allowed (similar to foods);
  • Chemically processed agro-ingredients – made from agricultural raw materials and clean manufacturing processes that comply with the principles of “Green Chemistry”, There is a list of these ingredients that must be made  from organic raw materials;
  • Water – a vital and basic raw material, its quality is essential;
  • Mineral ingredients – must be clean and comply with various environmental rules in their use and in further processing;
  • Other ingredients – this is a very restricted category. Some ingredients are necessary for preserving the product (must be simple and must do so with minimal impact), a very few are allowed only temporarily to facilitate the transition from the current situation to the objectives and direction of this standard.


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.

Finally, all the products produced to these standards have to be certified by an independently authorised certification body.  This makes sure that the certification body is competent and professional.  They will check everything necessary about the product to verify it complies with the standard and is labelled accurately and clearly, so you can have confidence in what you are buying.

What you should look out for on labels 

  • ‘COSMOS NATURAL’ on those that comply with the Standard in all other respects.The Percentage of Natural Ingredients are indicates on the label.


‘COSMOS NATURAL’ will always appear right below the logo/mark of the responsible certifier or association, so you will be able to recognise your already known and trusted local or national organisation that participates in the COSMOS-standard.

Finally, there are requirements for how the certified company describes itself and its products to make sure any associated literature and claims are accurate and not misleading
