Dr.Organic has proudly announced that it has received the COSMOS certification for its range of over 200 products, marking it as the UK’s largest skincare brand to receive the accolade.
To receive the COSMOS certification, a brand must undergo a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of every single ingredient used in each product, as well as the brand’s manufacturing processes and storage facilities to ensure that all practices meet strict environmental criteria. These include the enforcement of water and waste management plans and ensuring that no harmful chemicals, such as bleach, are used during the manufacturing process.
Brands that have received the accolade usually display the COSMOS logo on its product packaging. This gives customers peace of mind that the skincare products they are purchasing contain sustainably sourced, organic ingredients and have been formulated to have minimal impact on the planet. Following this announcement, Dr.Organic products will now display the COSMOS logo on redesigned, recycled packaging.
The announcement comes during a period where customers are taking their environmental impact into greater consideration; the British Beauty Council recently reported that 90% of consumers believe sustainable and ethical considerations are important when purchasing beauty products.
In response to the announcement, Dr.Organic Brand Director Victoria Harrison, says: “We’re looking to stay at the forefront of advances as they become available to us and we’ll continue to look for ways to improve sustainability so watch this space. Our COSMOS certification is simply another step in the right direction of us”.
