At Green Beaver, we believe that third party certifications take the guesswork out of claims made on cosmetics and personal care. This means that we adhere to the standards and guidelines of the third party agencies certifying our products. In doing so, we’re showing you just how much we care about the claims we make, and how strongly we feel about always being transparent.
Today, there are so many cosmetic and personal care products labeled as natural or organic. Generally, these claims are up for interpretation. So it’s often left to the consumer to understand and interpret an ingredient label and know enough about the brand behind it to trust the validity of those claims.
We proudly list our certifications below demonstrating that our products are not only good for you and your family, but also planet-friendly!
ECOCERT was the very first certification body to develop standards for natural and organic cosmetics. Introduced in 2003, the specification was drawn up in conjunction with all stakeholds in the value chain, i.e. experts, suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, consumbers and development organisations. ECOCERT currently supports and guides more than 1,000 companies through their certification processes.
By purchasing only cruelty-free products, you can help save rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, rats, and other animals from excruciating tests and a lifetime of suffering. But how do you know which companies and products are cruelty-free? PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies program is the ultimate resource for conscientious shoppers, making the quest for cruelty-free products as easy as (vegan) pie.
When you’re out shopping, look for PETA’s cruelty-free bunny logo—products proudly displaying this logo are cruelty-free, meaning that they were produced without testing on animals. They are also vegan!
Tiny particles of plastic have been added to thousands of personal care products. Hardly visible to the naked eye, they flow straight from the bathroom drain into the sewer system that wasn’t designed to filter them out. Ultimately, they contribute to the Plastic Soup swirling around the world’s oceans. These microbeads are passed along the marine food chain, leading up to humans, it is likely that we are also absorbing microbeads from the food we eat. Microbeads are not biodegradable and once they enter the marine environment, they are impossible to remove. That’s why we’re proud to be the first Canadian company to be certified microbead-free.
