CONFIRM AUTHENTICITY OF A COSMOS NATURAL OR COSMOS ORGANIC PRODUCT 
For consumers, distributors, stockists or anyone needing to confirm authenticity of a COSMOS ORGANIC or COSMOS NATURAL certification on a cosmetic product. The database includes all certified organic and natural cosmetics, makeup and skincare brands and beauty products. Many products  display a wide range of claims such as clean beauty, chemical free, non-toxic or GM free. Only independent certification to a recognised standard such as COSMOS guarantees that the product is a genuine organic or natural product.
