Éminence has been providing the beauty industry with organic alternatives to skin care since 1958. With the organic products market growing rapidly due to increasing consumer demand for food, cosmetic and nutraceutical products, it is becoming more important to look for proof of certification to ensure validity of organic claims.
European certification is known to have the strictest guidelines and organic regulations worldwide. Éminence has long been certified organic by Biokontroll, the main certification organization in Hungary where most of our potent and active ingredients are grown. We are also certified by Demeter International which has been in use in Europe since 1928 and is still regarded as providing the highest standards for organic products in the world. As a non-profit organization, their mission is to "improve the health of the planet and its people by providing certification of products whose ingredients are grown and processed according to the highest agricultural and environmental standards." From farm to market, only those companies that consistently meet these standards will be certified by Demeter, and Éminence is counted as one of them. Customers can use Éminence products with 100% confidence that they are safe and fully compliant with US and international labeling requirements and regulations as we also hold certifications with both USDA-Oregon Tilth and USDA-ASCO.
Celebrating more than 50 years of organic practices is an achievement of which to be proud but creating products that are kind to the environment is even better. Éminence is committed to being the industry leader in keeping our planet green; since our inception in 1958, we have been using sustainable farming and green practices to create organic products and are constantly looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, from the harvest and production of products to how they are packaged and, finally, how they reach spa clients. We even enlist wind and solar power energy in the making of products, use recyclable packaging, vegetable-based inks in printing, FSC certified post-consumer recycled paper and our Beyond Organic line is created with Biodynamic® farming practices. We think Mother Nature would be proud!
If you've been keeping track you will notice that Éminence holds certifications for several national and international organic certifying bodies. It is clear that we take our promise to you and the Earth seriously and use organic and natural ingredients in every single one of our amazing skin care products – and we've got the stamps to prove it!
