The ISO 16128 series provides guidelines on definitions and criteria for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products. These guidelines are specific to the cosmetics sector, taking into account that most existing approaches written for the agricultural and food sector are not directly transferrable to cosmetics. They apply scientific judgment and offer principles towards a consistent logical framework for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products incorporating common approaches employed in existing references.

The purpose of the ISO 16128 series is to encourage a wider choice of natural and organic ingredients in the formulation of a diverse variety of cosmetic products to encourage innovation.
The purpose of this standard 23750:2021 “Cosmetics — Answers to frequently asked questions on ingredients and product characterization according to ISO 16128-1 and ISO 16128-2” is to help ingredient manufacturers and cosmetic companies, or any reader, to qualify cosmetic ingredients as natural, natural derived or non-natural when using the ISO 16128 series.
