Note: Since January 2018, membership has been extended to include suppliers skilled in developing organic cosmetics (consultants, distributors ... ).In this case, membership can be completed online, without the need for certification.
Within the Cosmebio network, we welcome every company. The only condition to become a member of the association is to share our vision of what makes real organic cosmetics.
To welcome every company regardless of its size, we implement a progressive contribution, based on the company's turnover. Thus, for a company making less than €500,000 of turnover a year, the contribution is modest (lower than €500 excluding taxes). Then, you benefit from all the membership benefits listed above, with the same level of service offered to other members.
