EMAS – the European Union’s eco-management quality seal
All PHARMOS NATUR products have been EcoControl certified (www.ecocontrol.com/grundsaetze.php) since the very beginning. EcoControl is an inspection and certification body for ecological products and quality assurance systems in the non-food sector. EcoControl operates worldwide and works with a large network of partners, so that maximum competence and geographic availability are reliably combined.
Our star plants are all food-standard certified. This is a very demanding quality requirement that is re-documented every year by the testing institute LACON GmbH.
This food-grade certification enables us to prove our expertise, document it and so offer you, the customer, a high degree of reliability and product safety. The certification is neutral and independent of any commercial influence.
NCS natural cosmetics standard for humans, animals and the environment
PHARMOS NATUR has been working with the NCS natural cosmetics standard for humans, animals and the environment since 2017, as the criteria for this certification are significantly more stringent than the requirements for similar quality seals. The seal is awarded by GfaW (Gesellschaft für angewandte Wirtschaftsethik UG; Society for Applied Business Ethics) and is co-developed by numerous independent testing bodies. Substances of concern are categorically excluded, as are both animal testing and genetic engineering.
The vegan flower is our guarantee that the product is 100% vegan, meaning it contains no animal substances. Moreover, this seal is a safeguard that we do not undertake any animal testing ourselves, nor do we commission any, not for the finished product or for any of the raw materials we use.
No animal testing
The seal, showing a rabbit caressed by a protective hand, is unequivocal: no animal testing!
This reliable seal was developed by the Deutsche Tierschutzbund (German Animal Welfare Federation) in partnership with the Internationaler Herstellerverband für tierschutzgeprüfte Naturkosmetik, Kosmetik und Naturwaren e.V. (International Manufacturers’ Association against Animal Testing in Cosmetics). The standards far exceed what is stipulated by the law.
Our Lebensgesundmittel do not contain gluten. Coeliac disease sufferers are in safe hands with the emblem of the crossed-out ear of wheat, which means that the products are reliably gluten-free. At the same time, this symbol guarantees genuine high quality; any companies using it are required to meet high product standards. This is very important to us.
