THE IDEAS ARE CREATED IN ZURICH, THE PRODUCTS IN THE SWISS MOUNTAIN REGIONS
BIOKOSMA is synonymous with Swiss quality, and that fact is very important to us. The ingredients we use and their procurement process are subject to stringent quality requirements. Ever since BIOKOSMA was founded in 1935, it has adhered to its philosophy of using only carefully selected phyto ingredients. To this day, all our products are developed and produced in Switzerland, in Toggenburg and Jura. We thus support Swiss industry and also protect the environment with our short transport routes.
Switzerland's flora is a rich source of high-quality active ingredients for natural cosmetics. For our newly developed care product lines, we use high-quality recipes with organic plants from Switzerland. These are processed gently in accordance with the latest findings, observing strict ecological criteria.
We source the majority of our organic plant extracts from Botanica. This Swiss company has been certified as organic in accordance with the Swiss Organic Farming Ordinance since November 2014. What is more, sustainable activity is maintained in all processes at Botanica. The sustainable approach is based on CSE (Certified Sustainable Enterprise) certification. We therefore know that the plant extracts we use come from long-standing suppliers from different regions in Switzerland and that no protected wild plants are used for our extracts.
Natural cosmetics are becoming more and more popular. A label that helps consumers to identify "genuine, pure natural cosmetics" is there also becoming increasingly important. "Natural cosmetics" is not a protected term, so supposedly natural products unfortunately often contain all sorts of things. For this reason, we decided to have our products progressively certified according to NATRUE criteria in 2010. The internationally recognised NATRUE label is an ideal fit with our BIOKOSMA principles and guarantees genuine, certified natural cosmetics.
NATRUE's mission is to protect and promote natural and organic cosmetics to the benefit of consumers worldwide. Apart from water, NATRUE-certified products contain only natural and organic ingredients and:
Are free of artificial fragrances and colours
Contain no petrochemical-based ingredients
Contain no silicone oils and derivatives
Do not use genetically modified ingredients
Have no irradiation of end products or plant-based ingredients
Have not been tested on animals
