What Does COSMOS Approved Really Mean?

What Does COSMOS Approved Really Mean?

At Evolve we believe in the power of organic and natural ingredients, and is the reason why our skincare works alongside and in harmony with your body rather than against it.

‘Organic’ is a big buzzword in the skincare industry, but what does it really mean? When it comes to skincare ingredients, organic simply means that little to no artificial chemicals or methods were used when producing or sourcing the ingredients. This means that not only are they a lot better for your skin, but also a lot better for the environment too.

We always display the organic content of each product clearly on each label, next to the natural percentage, so you can see exactly what you are using. We are also approved in accordance with COSMOS Standard on lots of our products! But what is COSMOS approved?

COSMOS Organic Approved

COSMOS is the internationally recognised standard which sets certification rules and requirements for organic and natural cosmetic products in Europe. They are an independent organisation with strict rules and standards in place to ensure that each product is certified correctly!

What does COSMOS approved mean

Gaining a COSMOS ORGANIC or COSMOS NATURAL signature means that a company has met a number of in depth criteria to ensure consumers that their products are genuine organic or natural. This criteria is not only focused on ingredients but checked at various points in the journey of the product. These checks are not just focused on ingredients themselves but include checks on various processes at our eco studio, how we source our ingredients, ensuring that we do not test on animals, the sustainability of our packaging and even our formulations.

So far to date, we have gained COSMOS ORGANIC approval for lots of our products, and are working towards even more, we also have products that are certified as COSMOS NATURAL too! This means that you can put your trust in us that each product was sourced, created and produced to be genuinely organic, and designed with both the planet and your skin in mind.

This youth boosting, moisturising, gorgeously golden face mask uses a whole host of genius ingredients from Bio-Retinol, Rosehip Oil and Argan Oil alongside sustainably sourced mineral Mica to give it its golden shimmer. Apply a thick layer onto dry skin and leave for 5-10 minutes, then add water to transform the gold mask into a milky texture and then rinse off. We recommend using this mask once a week as a treat!
