Ecocert COSMOS Organic is a globally recognized certification for certified organic beauty products. COSMOS is a standard for organic and natural cosmetics. Ecocert is one of the four founding certification bodies behind this standard and is accredited to certify cosmetic products. COSMOS Organic is the highest level of certification within the COSMOS standard, and many ZENZ Organic Products bear this label.

To achieve the Ecocert COSMOS Organic label, 95% of the product's plant-based ingredients must be organic, while a minimum of 20% of all ingredients must be organic (10% in rinse-off products).

COSMOS (COSMetic Organic Standard) is a European standard for certified organic cosmetics, launched in 2011 and used in more than 70 countries. COSMOS is backed by five organic certification bodies that have created a common organic label to assist consumers in their search for certified organic cosmetics:

- BDIH (Germany)
- ICEA (Italy)
- Cosmebio (France)
- Soil Association (United Kingdom)
- Ecocert Greenlife SAS (France)

Ecocert is an inspection and certification body. Established in France in 1991, it specializes in the certification of organic agricultural products and was the first certification body to develop standards for "natural and organic cosmetics" in 2003. Ecocert is responsible for managing Ecocert COSMOS, which certifies both organic cosmetics (COSMOS ORGANIC) and natural cosmetics (COSMOS NATURAL).

ZENZ has chosen Ecocert COSMOS Organic because:

COSMOS-certified products are produced according to the highest standards of natural and organic certified cosmetics, and they are safe, effective, and pleasant to use. The certification is widespread and serves as an international standard that is easily recognizable for consumers.

ZENZ does more:

Our products contain a higher proportion of certified organic ingredients than what is required by Ecocert COSMOS Organic. For example, Conditioner Pure no. 02 contains a whopping 99% naturally derived ingredients and 87% certified organic ingredients.

When specific ingredients have different criteria between the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and Ecocert COSMOS Organic, ZENZ follows the criteria of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, as the Swan Label has a greater focus on health and is a government institution.
