The Slow Cosmétique Label - Introduction

A label helping you to better select products!

Thanks to the Slow Cosmétique Label, consumers know a specific brand sells clean, natural products, and promotes them in a responsible way.

A bit like the AAA or Michelin rating guide that awards restaurants with stars, the Slow Cosmétique association certifies outstanding cosmetic brands that run a both healthy and authentic business/production.

We rate the formula quality (healthy composition) but also the marketing involved (it has to be truthful, and truly authentic).


The Slow Cosmétique Label - Introduction

An independent certificate

The Slow Cosmétique Label is independent of any pre-existing "organic" label.

It doesn’t want to play the role of these "organic" labels or replace them. The certificate is another way of guiding consumers towards products and services registered in a global approach committed to a more authentic beauty, the Slow Cosmétique approach.

Inspired by Pierre Rabhi we like to say:

A cosmetic being organic isn’t enough to change the world, the company offering it must be committed or innovating in the right direction!

The Criteria

The Slow Cosmétique Label is given when a brand meets most criteria stemming from the official Slow Cosmétique Charter.

3 to 4 times a year, expert volunteers evaluate each candidate brand’s assortment and activity. These brands can apply to the office of the association if they wish to be certified.

Following a primary evaluation by members (complete analysis of the cosmetic’s file, the INCI, the marketing tools), the office of the association meets for discussion. The brand will be examined by our experts and the public on its formulas, but also on its commitment to a smarter, simpler, more honest and more humane cosmetic.

Each brand gets one to three stars.

A star with the Slow Cosmétique Label already means a lot, and even if a few points can be improved, members of the Slow Cosmétique association recall that a brand that received the Label is well above the market melee of cosmetics available for sale.
