CERTIFIED NATURAL COSMETICS – OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
To earn the BDIH COSMOS NATURAL seal of approval, a product has to comply with the strictest regulatory requirements on the selection of materials and production process.
Paraffins are petroleum distillates. They can form a film on the skin that has an effect on the skin’s ability to breathe.
Like paraffins, silicones deposit a film on the skin and hair, which can smother the surface. What’s more, silicones are not biologically degradable.
Parabens are petrochemical preservatives that cannot be used in certified natural cosmetics due to their risk potential.
NO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES OR PIGMENTS
The effects of synthetic fragrances and coloring agents 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 products are used.
All BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE formulas have been dermatologically tested for skin-friendliness.
