Natural cosmetics are more popular than ever. This makes it even more important to have orientation that ensures simple confirmation of its authenticity. All LOGONA products carry the NATRUE or BDIH label. LOGONA stands for controlled natural cosmetics, on which you can rely on 100%.
In the following, we will give you an overview of all relevant certifications & labels. The labels are also indicated on the product.
The internationally recognized label guarantees genuine and certified natural cosmetic
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.
The label guarantees certified and 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.
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.
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. You can find more information at: www.fsc-deutschland.de/
Much of our packaging features the LOGONA organic seal. We use this to guarantee the high organic quality of our products.
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.

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.
