Dynamic, quality management
A specialization is an evolving document which is likely to be continuously updated and improved in accordance with advancements in knowledge, development in technological capabilities, and general regulations. It is within this context that national specializations are developed, so that we can benefit from advancements that influence the European standards that fall under the COSMOS benchmark.
The COSMOS benchmark pertains to a private European standard which was developed by five founding members :
These entities united to form an international non-profit organization. Their aim was to promote the use of organic ingredients, to use production and transformation processes which are respectful of the environment and human health, and to incorporate and develop the ‘green chemistry’ concept.
All our certifications
The exclusive property of the French Ministry of Agriculture, which defines the rules of use and the qualifications for the AB certification label which, like the European organic logo, identifies products which are 100% organic or contain at least 95% organic products.
Ecocert is an inspecting and certifying body that specialized in organic agriculture. It was founded in France in 1991 by agricultural engineers who were aware of the need for ecologically sound agriculture and wanted to offer a way to identify this production method.
As a pioneer of organic cosmetics since 2002, this organization has defined the regulatory framework for ecological and organic cosmetology. It brings together all acting entities in the sector, uniting nearly 400 members in France and overseas. Together, these members work toward the development of natural, ecological cosmetics sourced from organic and green chemical products.
BIO EARTH DURABLE provides a modern-day benchmark for ecological and bio-sourced products which guarantees the absence of product pesticides. This organization promotes for consumer respect and sustainable development. This benchmark was developed by advocates brought together in the form of a club along with an ethics committee.
Why choose our organic certified cosmetics ?
While our customers do take some comfort in our claims that our snails are unharmed and have been certified as organic, we agree that the most compelling fact is that Mlle Agathe is certified by independent organizations.
Our COSMOS-certified skincare products are manufactured in accordance with the innovative, stringent, and constantly evolving criteria for organic cosmetics. They are safe, effective, and pleasant to use. Meeting this benchmark means that our ingredients are derived from renewable resources and manufactured using environmentally-friendly processes. It guarantees GMO-, paraben-, phenoxyethanol-, nanoparticle-, silicone-, PEG-, synthetic fragrance-, and synthetic dye-free products, as well as biodegradable or recyclable packaging. Mlle Agathe decided to undergo this specialization process in order to be transparent with our customers by providing an internationally recognized symbol of rigor as a COSMOS certified brand.
But in concrete terms, what does a COSMOS certified Mlle Agathe mean ?
We are the first cosmetics range to have this amount of highly concentrated organic, certified snail filtrate extract. To explain the significance of the COSMOS ORGANIC label (a European standard for cosmetics which advocates for organic and eco-design), we draw consumers’ attention to the fact that all our active ingredient concentration percentages have been verified and certified, from the moment of harvest to the time we’ve achieved our finished product.
