CERTIFIED NATURAL COSMETICS – OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
To maintain the BDIH COSMOS NATURAL standard, a product must comply with the strict regulatory requirements regarding the selection of natural raw materials and manufacturing processes.
Paraffins are petroleum distillates. They may form a sealing film on the skin that may have an impact on the breathability of the skin.
Like paraffin, silicone forms a film over the skin and hair, that may seal the surface. In addition, silicones are not biodegradable.
Parabens are petrochemical preservatives, that in principle may not be used in natural cosmetics due to their risk potential.
NO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES OR PIGMENTS
The effects of synthetic fragrances and colouringagents have so far been the subject of little research. Due to the fact that they can cause allergies, they are strictly not used in natural cosmetics.
Polyethylene glycols are petrochemical, water-soluble molecular compounds that cannot be used in certified natural cosmetics due to their risk potential.
NO ANIMAL TESTING
Animal testing may not be carried out or commissioned either in the development or testing phase of products.
ALL RAW MATERIALS ARE VEGETARIAN
The use of raw materials sourced from vertebrates is not permitted. Only certain animal-based products such as milk or honey are permitted.
NO GENETIC ENGINEERING
The use of raw materials from genetically engineered plants/raw materials is not permitted in certified natural cosmetics.
All BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE products are vegan and no animal-based ingredients are used.
All BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE formulas have been dermatologically tested for skin-friendliness.
