COSMOS is an international natural cosmetics standard. It was developed by the most important European labels such as Soil Association (Great Britain), Ecocert & Cosmebio (France), BDIH (Germany) and ICEA (Italy).
In many respects, the COSMOS standard resembles the criteria of well-known natural cosmetics labels. These include: a) certain ingredients must be used in organic quality (kbA), b) only certain manufacturing processes are permitted for raw materials and c) no ingredients of petrochemical origin may be used. However, the COSMOS standard goes beyond this and also evaluates the manufacturing process and packaging according to sustainability criteria.
As is common with many natural cosmetics labels, COSMOS distinguishes between natural cosmetics (COSMOS Natural) and organic cosmetics (COSMOS Organic).

The Vegan Trademark marks products which do not contain animal products and in the production of which no animal products were used as auxiliary materials in the production process. It also guarantees freedom from animal testing. The manufacturing company must not have carried out or commissioned any animal tests for the respective product. This applies to both ingredients and production auxiliaries.
Vegan life means, as far as possible and practicable, avoiding all forms of exploitation and cruelty to animals for food, clothing or other purposes. The Vegan Society in Great Britain awards the seal of approval. The Vegan Society Austria is an independent commercial agent and partner for the entire German-speaking countries.

100% climate neutral
This seal is awarded by ClimatePartner. The company, which is active in German-speaking countries, looks after and mediates a broad network of projects worthy of support that demonstrably reduce greenhouse gas emissions and are worthy of the basic needs of people and the environment.
“100% climate-neutral” companies and products confirm that the manufacturing company compensates for CO2 emissions from all areas of the production chain. This is done by promoting recognised climate protection projects. This is how we have drawn up our CO2 balance: In order to make a contribution to climaticneutral management, our entire daily business stood on the test stand, from the way to work to the final product – to reread on our blog. We have been supporting the Zambezi REDD+ Forest Protection Program since 2018.

German Sustainability Award
The German Sustainability Award (Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis; DNP) is the most important and best-known prize awarded in this field in Germany. Since 2008, it has been awarded by the German Sustainability Award Foundation (Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e. V.) to institutions as well as small, medium-sized and large companies that have rendered outstanding services to ecological and social alternatives through their commitment and inventiveness.
Nominees, finalists and award winners receive recognition primarily on behalf of associated partners from the Federal Government, municipal umbrella organisations, business associations, civil society organisations and research institutions. In 2019, i+m NATURKOSMETIK BERLIN was the first Berlin-based company and at the same time the smallest company ever to receive this award as a TOP 3 finalist in the DNP.
