I own or work for a small company, can I join the Cosmebio network ?
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.
