Organic products and ingredients
Today, products are often organic or have organic extracts. An ingredient called organic must be cultivated, so water can never become organic. In addition, the ingredient must come from a controlled crop that does not allow pesticides. It is also important that the origin of the ingredient can be verified. There are currently no regulations in Europe that state what or how much of an organic raw material an organic product should contain.
However, there are several labels that certify organic products. The labels have different requirements when it comes to how much of the content should be organic, it however usually requieres them to contains more than 85% organic raw materials. Some examples of such certifications are: SOIL ASSOCIATION, USDA, NATRUE, ECO GARANTIE, ECO CONTROL, NPA.
