Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens are the first and only sunscreens in the US certified by Ecocert Cosmos Natural. The Cosmos-standard is the international standard for organic and natural cosmetics.
The Standard covers all aspects of the sourcing, manufacture, marketing and control of cosmetic products:
· Origin and processing of ingredients – describes five categories, their origin requirements and how they may or may not be treated:
· Water – must comply with hygienic standards;
· Minerals and ingredients of mineral origin – must be of natural origin and may be modified with simple chemical reactions;
· Physically processed agro-ingredients – may be plant, animal or microbial origin but no GMOs, no critically endangered species, only products of (not a part of) animals;
· Chemically processed agro-ingredients – same as above, and the chemical treatments must respect the principles of Green Chemistry with the resulting ingredients complying with strict limitations of toxicity and biodegradability;
· Other ingredients – a very limited list of preservatives and some other ingredients and petrochemical moieties are temporarily allowed and are reviewed on a regular basis, taking into account availability of acceptable alternatives
Love Sun Body Sunscreens have been clinically tested hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and are vegan and cruelty-free. Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens meet the regulatory requirements of the FDA OTC Monograph System and the European Commission’s recommendation on UVA protection.
