“Certified organic” products: what does that mean?
All products from the NUXE ORGANIC Range have been certified by ECOCERT, the certification body that verifies compliance with the charter (COSMEBIO or COSMOS depending on the formulas).
NUXE ORGANIC skincare even exceeds the required standards, with formulas containing an average of 99% ingredients of natural origin and an average of 52% ingredients from organic farming, in comparison with the minimum requirements of between 10 and 20% certified organic ingredients out of the total ingredients depending on the product category and charters.
Green technology achievements
Cutting-edge green technologies allow the extraction of maximum active molecules with minimal impact on the environment. They use no chemical solvents, consume less energy and generate very little polluting waste. They can be divided into 2 main categories:
- Extraction methods, used to isolate a plant's active molecules. For example cold-pressing or oIeo-eco-extraction.
- Processing methods using botanical biotechnology, which use just a small fraction of the plant and allow an infinite number of molecules to be developed in the laboratory.
Priority to active ingredients which are locally produced and from sustainable sources
For each NUXE ORGANIC skincare product, Laboratoire NUXE has selected a star botanical-origin active ingredient that provides an optimum response to the skin’s essential needs.
Each of these active ingredients has gone through a stringent selection process taking into account the plant's geographic origin, together with its harvesting conditions. To ensure consistent quality, their traceability is monitored by means of DNA testing.
We also pay particular attention to the methods and place of production of the active ingredient, as well as to the commitments made by our producers and suppliers in relation to environmental protection and biodiversity.
