Thirty Cosmetic Ingredients Certified by BDIH at Cognis

August 6, 2008

Cognis Care Chemicals customers can now get certified ingredients for natural cosmetics, as 30 of Cognis’ basic and active ingredients have achieved the BDIH (Association of German Industries and Trading Firms) certification for use in natural cosmetics. An independent assessor working on behalf of the BDIH classified 30 cosmetic oils, emulsifiers and surfactants from Cognis Care Chemicals and its active ingredients business Laboratoires Sérobiologiques as meeting the criteria for certification.

Other Cognis products are currently at the application or evaluation stage of the BDIH certification process. In addition to those products certified by the BDIH, 90 ingredients from Cognis’ portfolio also meet the internationally recognized Ecocert standard for use in “green” cosmetics.
