Ecocert & Sustainability

We are always striving to make the world a better place. We were one of the first clean brands, and we continue to set the bar high for packaging and ethical purchasing. We have partnered with Ecocert and PACT, and we have an in-house bottle recycling program. We want to be leaders in this industry and empower our customers to make choices that are good for them and good for the planet.

Ecocert Cosmos Natural & Organic

Ecocert is the international gold standard for certifying skincare as natural and organic. It is a guarantee that products are sustainable every step of the way from how the ingredients are grown to the cleaning products we use in our lab.

The certification ensures:

  • production and processing that respect the environment and human health

  • the development of the concept of green chemistry

  • the absence of petrochemical ingredients

  • responsible use of natural resources

  • respect for biodiversity

  • the absence of GMOs

  • recyclable packaging

terracyle recycling closed loop system

We send used caps, labels, and manufacturing waste such as gloves to TerraCycle where they are manually separated and sent to third party subcontracting facilities for processing and conversion work. Metals are smelted into bars so they may be recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products. In terms of PPE waste, these materials are crushed into a densified crumb that can be recycled and used to make plastic lumber that is found in composite decking, outdoor furniture and plastic shipping pallets.

All paper products are sent to our municipal recycling program.
