The main principles are:

Responsible Use of Natural Resources

Ecocert prioritizes sustainable agricultural practices that ensure the long-term viability of plant populations. This involves meticulous monitoring to prevent overharvesting, which can deplete natural resources and endanger plant species. By promoting responsible cultivation methods, Ecocert safeguards biodiversity and ecosystem health, mitigating the risks posed by unsustainable practices. This commitment extends to protecting vulnerable plant populations from irresponsible agricultural activities, such as habitat destruction or excessive exploitation. Through certification standards that emphasize sustainability, Ecocert encourages practices that support the resilience of ecosystems and contribute to the preservation of plant diversity for future generations.

Respect for Biodiversity

The variety of life on Earth is crucial for maintaining the health and stability of ecosystems. A diverse array of species means that if one species is affected by disease, climate change, or other factors, other species may be able to fill its ecological role, preventing ecosystem collapse. Biodiversity also supports pollination by providing habitat for diverse pollinator species like bees, butterflies, and birds.

Absence of Petrochemicals

Ecocert Cosmos does not allow petrochemicals into formulas. Petrochemical extraction and production processes contribute to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, posing significant environmental risks. Petrochemical-derived ingredients may contain harmful compounds that can irritate the skin and compromise overall well-being.

Absence of GMOs

GMOs mess with crop diversity, making them more prone to pests and diseases. They can even mix up with wild plants, compromising their genes and biodiversity. Introducing GMOs can throw off ecosystem balance, leading to more herbicide use and putting other species at risk. Going non-GMO helps preserve diversity, stops modified traits from spreading, and supports eco-friendly farming.
