With so many options in the realm of natural skin care now, we aim to make it as simple as possible for our Skinfoodies to understand our products. We love that our packaging reflects a simple, clean aesthetic that doesn’t misconstrue what goodness there is inside.
Now that we have a large portion of our range certified natural and organic, our packaging has been amended slightly to reflect this. But fear not, take a look below for our easy to follow explanation on all the new and wonderful logos that are appearing on our packaging.
Made in New Zealand – Products with this logo are the part of our range that is not yet certified. However, these products are still amazing and created to the highest standard using the best bio-active food-based ingredients. At Skinfood, we have an exceptionally high-quality assurance and always aim to create the best products to be included in our range.
COSMOS Natural – The COSMOS standard for COSMOS certified natural products states that products must be labelled with the signature ‘COSMOS NATURAL’ icon in conjunction with the seal of the COSMOS standard representative body. For Skinfood, this is in conjunction with Ecocert.
Products with this logo represent that these products have been approved by our certification body, ECOCERT, adhering to the COSMOS standard and created with a specific percentage of natural origin ingredients by the weight in the total product.
Keep an eye out for these percentages which can be found on the back of these products, in a sentence at the end of the ingredients list.
ECOCERT Organic – ECOCERT Organic certified products mean that these products have been approved by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the ECOCERT standard. Established in France in 1991, ECOCERT was the first inspection & certification body to develop standards for natural and organic products globally. The basic principles of an ECOCERT product include the use of ingredients derived from renewable resources and manufactured in an environmentally friendly process.
The Skinfood products with ECOCERT Organic certification are labelled with the ECOCERT logo with the signature ‘ORGANIC COSMETIC’. This logo represents that these products have been approved and created with a specific percentage of organically sourced ingredients by the weight in the total product. These percentages can be found on the back of these products in a sentence at the end of the ingredients list.
At times, you may also see these logos surrounding Skinfood products. These logos stand for the Skinfood products that are recognised as Vegetarian and Vegan respectively by the Vegetarian Society.
The Vegetarian Society is the oldest vegetarian organisation in the world, and their mission is to inspire and inform consumers of their lifestyle choices and assist in educating on the importance of knowing exactly what goes into each individual product.
