Cosmebio press release
The ecological and organic cosmetic comes from nature. It is based on the using of natural, ecological and organic ingredients, after extraction and manufacturing processes that preserve the most of their natural properties. Cosmebio members, by signing the association Charter, undertake the fact that the ecological and organic cosmetic shall respect the universal heritage provided by nature. Using GMOs in cosmetic products, then, is against the principle of this natural cosmetic.
This principle of precaution is taken as such, on the European level, in the new COSMOS frame of references, a founder member of which Cosmebio is. Up to now, the French position, duplicated on the European level, is clear: apply the principle of precaution about the use of GMOs in natural and organic cosmetic products, with an upstream control of the higher-risk raw materials.
