Melvita products carry the Cosmébio label set by the association of professionals in the ecological and organic beauty sector. This label complies with ECOCERT, the French independent State approved certifying body.
Each Melvita product is created to exceed the high standards set by ECOCERT France. These organic standards guarantee that:
- At least 95% of the total ingredients are from natural origin (water included).
- At least 10% of the total ingredients are from organic farming (water included).
- At least 95% of the total plant-based ingredients are organic.
These very strict standards exclude, among others, products of petrochemical origin such as paraffin or silicone, ethoxylated or glycolated products (PEG, etc.) and the majority of synthetic preservatives including formaldehyde generators, parabens and phenoxyethanol.
In addition to a list of ingredients to be avoided, each raw material complies with the standard’s ecological requirements guaranteeing its traceability.
The certification also applies to the packaging that must be recyclable, the production site environment, waste management, manufacturing and cleaning methods and all packaging equipment maintenance so that the impact on the environment is kept to a strict minimum.
