ISO 16128: Self-Certified Naturality
Time: 12:00 - 12:30
Date: 3 July 2019
Theatre: Brooks Building
The ISO 16128 consists of two guideline documents, that defines and explains how to calculate the natural and/or organic content of cosmetic products. ISO 16128-1 defines naturality and organicity criteria for ingredients, and ISO 16128-2 describes the criteria to calculate the naturality of mixtures. Contrary to many naturality label, ISO 16128 is self-assessed, and not certified by a third party: that means that cosmetic manufacturers can freely claim naturality of products, despite the Guideline does not address product communication. However, such claim should be substantiated by specific assessment.
