Natural and Organic Skin Care Certification and Labels

Natural, organic, vegan and cruelty-free certifications in skincare and cosmetics can serve as a product assurance of their content and environmentally friendly standards.

While some skincare products carry labels claiming their product are 'natural’, ‘organic’, 'botanical’ or ‘against animal testing’, there is no legal definition of these words, so they can be confusing and do not guarantee a product's integrity.



Choose Cruelty-Free is an independent, non-profit organisation based in Australia, which actively campaigns for an end to animal testing of cosmetics, personal and household products. Accreditation criteria is stringent.

Choose Cruelty Free accredited brands at AMORGANICA are: Saya Organic Skincare.



The leaping bunny is a rigorous and internationally recognised certification that ensures companies prove that no animal testing is conducted or commissioned for finished products or ingredients in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers. The Leaping bunny is a collective of 8 animal rights organisations in North America and Europe that only certify companies that have a policy not to test their products on animals for any market, including China where animal testing for imported cosmetics is currently required. Products bearing the Leaping Bunny mark are certified ‘cruelty free’ under the internationally-recognised Humane Cosmetics or Humane Household Products Standards.

Leaping Bunny certified brands at AMORGANICA are: Lily Lolo Mineral Natural Make-up.



The pink bunny logo is overseen by *PETA and it indicates a self-reported manufacturer’s claim that a product and its ingredients were not tested on animals. Where the word Vegan is used the product is expected not to include animal-produced or animal-derived substances, like beeswax. *People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is the largest animal rights organisation in the world.



The international Vegan Trademark is the leading symbol of vegan-friendly products and services, it’s registered in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and India and used worldwide to represent the international standard for authentic vegan products. The vegan society defines Veganism as “a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose”.

Vegan registered brands at AMORGANICA are: Evolve Organic Beauty.



The Soil Association is the UK’s organic skin care assessor, they have very strict health and beauty standards. This certification process carefully checks skincare ingredients to certify that a product has minimum 95% or 70-95% organic ingredients, has used minimal non-organic additives and only those from a restricted list. These must be non-GM and can only be used if the organic version of that ingredient is not yet available, any processed ingredients, are processed by ecologically sound means. Under the Soil Association standards a product can only be called 'organic' in the product name where 95% of the ingredients (excluding water) are organic, whilst products that are 70-95% organic must state the percentage of organic ingredients in the product description and cannot include the word ‘organic’ in the product name.
