We want to offer beautiful and above all safe beauty products for everyone.
Therefore, in addition to the legal requirements, we also test all our raw materials according to further internal criteria. We include undesirable substances in our banned substances list, which currently comprises more than 60 individual substances and substance groups. These substances are prohibited for future development projects. We therefore have even stricter criteria for the selection of raw materials than required by law. Because we are convinced that only those who act responsibly can be successful in the long term.
Since 2015, cosnova has been carefully checking all raw materials for additional health, environmental and social aspects. This is carried out by our sustainability department, which evaluates each substance according to a traffic light system – we have now examined more than 1600 substances. Our goal is to improve our entire range holistically and make it sustainable.
Beyond our strict list of banned substances, our Clean Beauty Standard prohibits 5 additional substances that can be problematic for your health and the environment:
We are even stricter with our Clean Beauty PLUS products, such as the Clean ID range by CATRICE. Here, we prohibit six further substances and substance groups in addition to the Clean Beauty standards:
… that we list all of the ingredients on the packaging according to their percentage by weight in accordance with the German Cosmetics Ordinance so that our customers know what's inside their favorite products. Particularly important for people suffering from allergies: the names of the individual substances are based on the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) and are standardized throughout the EU.
