What is eco-design?
The initiative consists of:
|integrating the environment into the design phases in order to reduce the negative impact of products on the environment throughout their life cycle||offering human-friendly products by restricting the use of substances that are dangerous to the health of humans, animals and plant life||reducing unnecessary waste and discharges||maintaining product performance and efficiency||educating and informing consumers|
• Product certification •
HYGIÈNE & NATURE complies with and anticipates changes in the regulations specific to detergents, biocides and cosmetics throughout the product life cycle.
The company is committed to developing Ecolabel products. This EU economic label, symbolised by the flower motif, guarantees the principle of a global approach that factors in a product’s entire life cycle: the choice of raw materials, its formulation, production, distribution, consumption and elimination after use. An exclusive labelling system illustrates the impact of each stage on humans and the environment.
The products are certified by ECOCERT GREENLIFE: For the health of our consumers and the environment, most of our products are certified by ECOCERT (an independent inspection and certification body) with the following principles:
- Promoting the use of ingredients derived from organic farming
- Using production and processing methods that respect the environment and human health
- Integrating and developing the concept of green chemistry
- Informing and protecting consumers
ECOCERT GREENLIFE certifies a major part of our products based on two standards:
- The Cosmos standard for cosmetic products
- Ecodetergents and ecodetergents made with organic ingredients for cleaning products.
ECOCERT is an inspection and certification body approved by the French Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries together with the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment. The label guarantees that the various components are collected, processed and extracted according to processes validated by ECOCERT using a production approach and methods that respect the environment. Eco-certified manufacturers are checked twice a year by an independent ECOCERT auditor.
