The World’s First Eco-Certified Self Tanning Brand
Many self tans claim to be natural and organic but may only contain trace elements of an organic material. TanOrganic however, is the World’s first Eco-Certified self tanning brand, made from 95% certified organic ingredients.
ECOCERT is an organic certification organisation, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world. The certification process is voluntary but it is also one of the most stringent in the market as Ecocert undertakes at least one inspection per year, supplemented by spot checks over the course of the year. Samples may be taken for laboratory analysis. The entire production chain is checked, from the raw material to the finished product. A scale of penalties applies to non-compliant products, which may go as far as final suspension of the certificate.
To qualify for Eco Certifiocation a product must be:
- At least 95% natural ingredients in the finished product.
- No GMOs, parabens, phenoxyethanol, ingredients derived from petrochemicals or synthetic chemistry; no testing of the finished product on animals.
- The whole manufacturing process is controlled, up to the packing stage, and the packaging and outer packaging must be biodegradable or recyclable.
- The labelling must be transparent for the consumer.
TanOrganic received their certification in 2012 and continue to lead the field in ensuring that our product is not just great for your skin, but great for the environment.
