BDIH and NATRUE – reliable proof of natural and organic quality
Natural cosmetics are more popular than ever. This makes it even more important to have orientation that ensures simple confirmation of its authenticity. This is something that lies particularly close to our hearts, which we regularly support in national and international campaigns. Accordingly, all LOGONA products carry the BDIH label, which has represented natural cosmetics for over ten years. Many products are also certified by NATRUE and carry the LOGONA organic seal, which guarantees the high organic quality of our products. The result of our commitment: countless good and very good ratings in Öko consumer tests. And controlled natural cosmetics you can absolutely trust.
Controlled natural cosmetics
All LOGONA Naturkosmetik products meet the strict criteria of BDIH for controlled natural cosmetics. The BDIH standard establishes which raw materials are permitted and which are prohibited. This essentially means that certified natural and organic cosmetics may only contain natural and nature-based raw materials – preferably from controlled organic cultivation or wild harvesting. All provisions of the BDIH standard are rooted in an ethical attitude. According to this ethic, natural and organic cosmetics cannot be considered in isolation, but rather embedded in a holistic view of humanity and nature. Compliance with all criteria is assessed and documented by the organisation’s own seal. For comprehensive information on the BDIH standard, please visit the websites www.kontrollierte-naturkosmetik.de and www.ionc.info.
Certified raw material quality
The quality and effectiveness of a cosmetic product largely depends on the quality of the raw materials used. Several LOGONA products carry the EcoControl seal. This seal stands for proven raw material quality. EcoControl also certifies raw materials from organic cultivation and wild harvesting. The ecological quality of a product (such as an essential oil) is certified with reference to the ecological quality of raw materials (for instance, EC, BIO) and the production process.
A certificate for good environmental management
The company LOGOCOS Naturkosmetik AG, which owns the LOGONA natural cosmetics brand, has issued a comprehensive environmental statement and has undergone a complete voluntary control of its operational processes. Upon completion of the inspection, LOGOCOS was awarded ISO-14001 and EMAS certification for the implementation of the highest standards of internal environmental management. For more information, please visit www.emas.de. You can download the environmental statement here: www.logocos.de.
Öko Consumer Test
Top marks for LOGONA products
The Öko-Test magazine was first published in 1985. Today, it is one of the best-known consumer protection magazines in Germany, and focuses on ecological topics. Öko-Test uses independent laboratories to test products in relation to health and environmental factors and evaluates them accordingly. Over the last 30 years, LOGONA products have been awarded the grade VERY GOOD or GOOD over 300 times.
International certification for natural and organic cosmetics
An increasing number of LOGONA natural cosmetics also carry the international NATRUE certification for natural and organic cosmetics. The NATRUE standard certifies cosmetic products in three categories: as natural cosmetics, as natural cosmetics with organic ingredients or as organic cosmetics. The NATRUE standard has much in common with the BDIH standard, although specific quality criteria exist. Some of the special features of the NATRUE label are a clearly defined minimum level of genuine natural ingredients and a clearly defined maximum level of near-natural raw materials. This therefore guarantees consumers a high level of authentic natural quality. To find out more about the NATRUE label, please visit the website www.natrue.org.
„We fight against animal testing”
The fight against testing on animals in China and the implementation of alternative test methods are of huge significance at our company. For this reason, we have already been engaged in close collaboration with PETA, the animal rights’ organization, (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), and have generated a concerted, global initiative called ‘Committed to life’. In February 2014, LOGOCOS Naturkosmetik AG was presented with the ‘Courage in Commerce Award’ for their commendable stance on the cruelty free issue.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit organization whose declared aim is to create an international system for the certification of sustainable forestry management. LOGOCOS Naturkosmetik AG uses FSC materials only which have been produced at certified timber companies. Accordingly, the FSC label can be found on the folding boxes for LOGONA products and guarantees the sustainable origin of the paper being used. FSC-certified paper is also the only type we use for our brochures and information materials – from sustainable and certified forestry.

German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB)
Care for sensitive skin
The DAAB was founded in 1897. As a patient and consumer organisation, it is committed to the needs of patients with allergies, asthma/COPD and eczema. The LOGONA FREE care range, which offers special care for allergy sufferers, extremely sensitive skin and irritable skin, was tested by the German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB).

LOGONA organic seal
First-class quality from nature
Much of our packaging features the LOGONA organic seal. We use this to guarantee the high organic quality of our products.
Natural cosmetics that love animals
Products defined as ‘vegan’ only contain plant ingredients.
Healthy cosmetics from LOGONA
People who suffer from gluten intolerance need to avoid all traces of gluten. Gluten-free products from LOGONA carry a label to mark them as such.
PETA certificate ‘cruelty free’
All of the LOGONA products certified with the PETA certificate ‘cruelty free’ were produced without animal testing or the use of any animal based components and are vegan.
Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil
(FONAP = Forum Nachhaltiges Palmöl)
For quite some time now palm (kernel) oil has been attracting criticism since large swathes of rain forest, among other sites, are necessary for the cultivation of oil palms. The problem is that the biodiversity is threatened because these areas are also the habitat of various species of animals. LOGOCOS Naturkosmetik AG has been a member of the Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil since the beginning of 2014. The forum is a consortium of companies, associations and non-government organisations whose aim is to develop sound solutions for improving the practices in the palm oil sector.
