COSMEBIO: the organic cosmetics label since 2002

Created in France, COSMEBIO is the first worldwide association specialized in natural and organic cosmetics.

The specifications, filed with the Ministry of Industry, allow certification bodies to use this standard as a basis for certifying all natural and organic cosmetics

The COSMEBIO label highlight the best organic cosmetics and lists the most engaged brands.

To obtain the COSMEBIO label on its packaging, a natural or organic cosmetic must meet certain criteria:

  • 95% minimum of the ingredients of the total product must be of natural origin (with water and mineral or mineral-based ingredients considered as natural)
  • 95% minimum of the plant-based ingredients must be organic
  • 10% minimum of the ingredients of the total product must be organic (with water and mineral or mineral-based ingredients considered as non-organic because they are not derived from a life form)

Out of the total product, limitation of the petrochemical origin (list of authorized ingredients with maximum dosage), which ultimately amounts to a minimum of approximately 95% of ingredients of natural origin

  • 95% minimum of ingredients which can be organic must be organic (such as plant material, beeswax, milk...) 
  • 20% minimum of the ingredients of the total product must be organic (10% for rinse-off products and minerals considered as non-organic because they are not derived from a life form)
