About us

Modern CosmEthics is an international association of cosmetology professionals that promotes natural, organic, sustainable, ethical and cosmetically active products.
About us
Those of us at the Modern CosmEthics team believe in the basic principles of nature and the power of independent scientific knowledge.

Our vision is what we call a ‘back-to-the-natural future’, and we like to joke that our work will not be complete until people use only CosmEthically ACTIVE cosmetics for their daily needs.

We believe deeply that this is the only possible long-term future for cosmetics, cosmetic manufacturers, the users of cosmetics and our planet. There is a long road ahead of us, but a brave combination of knowledge, experience, skills, stubbornness and love supports us on our journey.

We encourage you to take the challenge, and follow us in supporting, promoting and creating a natural, sustainable and healthy world.

Change your habits, change the world

The trend of natural, including going back to natural values, is becoming a realistic fact of the modern world in different areas of our lives, e.g. in the food sector, textile industry and, finally, in cosmetics. We are proud to see that people are increasingly aware that we are solely responsible for our health and the environment in which we live. Last but not least, we are also an advocate for change in consumer consumption habits, with an emphasis on reducing the overall consumption of cosmetic products.

Use natural but use rational, and use less but use smart. What you apply is who you are.

The choice is your voice

Cosmethically active movement

You are kindly invited to get to know our young community that pursues the ultimate goal of connecting all of us, both professionals and enthusiasts who care for the health of our skin and planet, through education about the importance and values of natural and cosmetically active products. We deeply believe that we all deserve only the best. Join our efforts, and share and live our philosophy.

Join us!

Knowledge is the key

Our goal is to spread the understanding and values of CosmEthically ACTIVE cosmetics that are based on the skin’s needs, ecologically acceptable cosmetic ingredients and modern approaches of cosmetology.

We highly support investment in knowledge at the individual, educational, academic and public level, as educated consumers will help us raise awareness about natural cosmetics to a higher level.

Katja Schoss
Bachelor of Cosmetic Sciences

Katja has had a love for flowers, herbs and cosmetics since she was a child. This is one of the many reasons she earned her degree in the field of cosmetology, where she gained knowledge about all types of cosmetic products and decided that natural products are the best. She is always searching for new ingredients, and focuses on those that can grow in her own garden and can be used in her own cosmetic formulas for herself, her friends and work. As a team manager at Modern CosmEthics, she is responsible for day-to-day activities and work organisation.
