COSMOS Standard Version 4.0

The most significant changes concern the sustainable criteria for palm oil and its derivatives as well as raw materials of mineral origin for which social criteria in the supply chain must also be implemented in addition to the principles of "Green Chemistry". The criteria for sustainable packaging will also be tightened. The auditing of ingredients and processes ensures that high consumer expectations concerning natural and organic cosmetics are fulfilled.
