Summary

There are standards for organic cosmetics and cleaning materials. Nature et Progrès standards include mainly use of organic ingredients, forbid use of petrochemical molecules and synthetic constituents, ensure a high biodegradability of products, etc.

Difference

Nature et Progrès standards include standards for cosmetics and cleaning materials whiel the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not.

Justification

There is now a huge "organic" or "natural" cosmetics industry in Europe, but there are no EU rules or standards for these. If we want organic cosmetics to be really organic and avoid consumers being misled there is a need to define standards.
