F.A.Q.

 
 

May I receive your catalog and your price lists?

COSMEBIO is the French Professional Association for Natural, Ecological and Organic Cosmetics and neither sales nor manufactures cosmetic products. It federates all the key players of the field: suppliers of ingredients, cosmetic laboratories, contract manufacturers and retailers with own brand which are listed on our membership directory of members. You can also visit the labeled products with, for each product,  the distribution network as well as the name of the manufacturer and/or the distributor with its address, phone number and website.

What is the difference between COSMEBIO® and Ecocert or Qualité France ?

The COSMEBIO® label is a registered trademark of COSMEBIO® Association.  COSMEBIO® founded the Charter for ecological and organic cosmetics that his members commit to respect.

Two standards have been approved by the COSMEBIO® Charter and have been registered with the Ministry of Industry: the Ecocert Standard and the Qualité France standard. The Ecocert and Qualité France labels are labels of certification.

The certification of products according to one or another standard allows to use the COSMEBIO® label once registration to the Association is accepted.
