COSMOS Fragrances: The Natural Solution

In line with our ambition to contribute in a tangible way to the preservation of our environment and reduce our ecological footprint, Iberchem is pleased to offer to its customers fragrances suitable for COSMOS products.  These fragrances are certified by ECOCERT, and respond to the highest requirements in the development of natural finished products, be it for personal care, home care or fine fragrances.

What is the COSMOS certification?

A product is certified COSMOS (COSMetic Organic and natural Standard) when all the ingredients are from natural origin except a restrictive approved ingredients list (including preservatives) authorised in small quantity. In average, COSMOS Ecocert certified products contain 99% ingredients of natural origin.

  • The COSMOS-standard applies to cosmetic products that are marketed as organic or natural. Its guiding principles are to:
  • promote the use of products from organic agriculture, and respect biodiversity;
  • use natural resources responsibly, and respect the environment;
  • use processing and manufacturing that are clean and respectful of human health and the environment;
  • integrate and develop the concept of “Green Chemistry”.
  • The Standard covers all aspects of the sourcing, manufacture, marketing and control of cosmetic products in 12 chapters.



ECOCERT, a global leader in certification in organic farming and organic cosmetics, relies on an international network of 30 branches operating in more than 130 countries. ECOCERT is also a recognised player in the certification of environmental management systems and fair trade. It sets demanding standards to encourage economic players across all sectors to adopt more responsible practices. Its expertise also covers environmental consulting. In accordance with its convictions, ECOCERT applies a rigorous environmental policy to all of its activities.
