What is Ecocert? Ecocert is an organic certification organization, founded in France in 1991. It is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world. Ecocert primarily certifies food and food products, but also certifies cosmetics, detergents, perfumes, and textiles. Ecocert is also a leading certifier of fair trade food, cosmetics and textiles as per Ecocert Fair Trade standards.
A Natural Ingredient: The micronized silver we use is a pure, elemental microbial cleansing product with a very unique particle structure consisting of highly porous micro-sized silver particles. It is produced in a complex mechanical production process under medical device manufacturing standards. It contains no additional ingredients, it is safe, free of side effects and does not penetrate skin or mucosal tissue because of its large particle size (average of 10 micrometers).
The fine silver powder is an Ecocert registered ingredient and meets the relevant ecological standards for natural and bio-cosmetics. The 99.9 percent pure metallic silver is obtained from nature and, using a patented production process, pulverized by purely physical methods. It is free from chemical or animal additives. The manufacturing process produces no chemical residue and there are no animal tests carried out on the ingredient for cosmetics purposes. Also, Ecocert ensures the absence of GMO, parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicon, PEG, synthetic perfumes and dyes, animal-derived ingredients.
