ECOGRUPPO ITALIA, established in 1992, is a Certification body working in the field of ecosustainableproduction, within agriculture, manufacturing, processing and service industries.
With head office in Catania and operational branches in various Italian regions and abroad, weapply a procedure on a scale which begins with the product and controls all relevant processes, theproduction site, management systems and external connections.
Certification of cosmetic products started in 2007.
ECOGRUPPO ITALIA assesses conformity against: - its own "Natural and Organic Cosmetics" standard. It guarantees the consumer and qualifiesthe companies that wish to position themselves within bio-cosmetics through continuity andcommitment. - the "NATRUE" standard, prestigiously promoted within European and Internationalmarkets.
The cosmetics certified by ECOGRUPPO ITALIA have to be formulated using very fine rawmaterials, particularly those coming from organic farming. This guarantees the absence of OGMand of ionizing radiation, as well as of pesticides and synthetic substances.
ECOGRUPPO ITALIA is the first Italian Control Body to have got from Accredia the accreditationof Cosmetics certification to EN 45011. We thought it more transparent, and in the best interests ofproducers and consumers, that a third party body recognized the existence of skills and professionalrequirements.
We aim, in the meantime, to steadily improve our services and overall performance.
