The CosmEthically ACTIVE certificate defines natural, ethical and active cosmetics with a special emphasis on evidence, physiological compatibility and the rational formulating.
It is the first certificate that pursues an integral approach to the evaluation of cosmetics. It reviews a cosmetic product by the origin of the ingredients, level of physiological compatibility, concentration of the cosmetically active ingredients and the science-based evidence behind them, principles of rational formulating and non-misleading, ethical claims.
The main step during the certification process is the expert assessment of a cosmetic product, made by cosmetology scientists.

When I first heard about the CosmEthically ACTIVE certificate, I knew that I had to have it, as I wanted to raise my cosmetics line to the highest standard. The team that works behind the certificate and with which I cooperated during the certification process definitely convinced me of that. They were always ready to help, even with advice on ingredients that needed to be replaced due to very strict certificate criteria. It's the latter that allow only truly environmentally friendly ingredients, and that's the way it should be. Users can be sure that such products are really the best for our skin’s needs. Praise and thanks to the team!
The certification process was clear and transparent as soon as we began to work. Clarity and transparency helped us to adjust other product formulas. We have seized the opportunity and learn a lot during this process – about ingredients, the naturalness of processes and the importance of being more comprehensive. The people who work at CosmEthically ACTIVE certificate are highly educated, stand for their values and respond in a timely manner. Most important, their added value is even more than certification. I found partners with them. I truly believe that this certificate is a clear path to how the cosmetics industry should deliver products – conscious, responsible and effective – both to people and the environment.
