Annemarie Börlind USA The Brand Certification
In recent years many new certifying marks have appeared on the cosmetics market, all with different standards and criteria. Unfortunately, instead of giving consumers confidence, they only create confusion.
This is why ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND has opted for ECO CONTROL.
ECO CONTROL is a seal that is intended to reflect the very high standards the company demands of itself. In addition to questions about the type, origins and processing of raw materials, this seal includes far-reaching aspects such as social responsibility and sustainability in all areas of the company. The criteria of ECO CONTROL therefore go much further than the usual natural cosmetics certifications in numerous respects.
