Hereby we inform that ICEA has decided, following the resolution passed at the last meeting of the Certification Commission Cosmetics and Detergents, to allow the indication of the terms BIO, BIOLOGICO, ORGANIC in thecertified products in accordance with the specification of Eco Bio Cosmetics (DTR 06) which guarantee the presence of all the organic ingredients available on the market.
Such references can appear in the trademark, in the claim, in the name / brand of the line and in the product description.
The concept of BIO / ORGANIC , in fact, is implicit in the values of eco bio cosmetics that , since the birth of our certification system, we wanted to characterize adding environmental requirements and product safety, in particular regarding the dermatologic aspects.
In line with this new approach we have updated the label of Eco Bio Cosmetics that can be used for various foreign markets where prevails the identification of these products with the term ORGANIC instead of the term BIO and ECO BIO wich is not evocative of values related to the certification ICEA.
From now on you can use the labels and advertising of the ICEA certified ORGANIC COSMETICS mark that is in the annex.
The label in the Italian language certificate ICEA - Eco Bio Cosmetics, however, remains unchanged, since it already contains the term BIO well understood by the Italian consumer.
WARNING! The term ORGANIC/ORGANICO can not be used in any case in U.S. and Brazilian markets, as the organic rules in force in these countries for food products includes cosmetic products and require, therefore, the relevant certification regulated but especially the manufacturer restricts the use of the same substances permitted for food (a few additives for use in food, chosen among the most mild and natural).
