So many things to check to make the right choice... Among all the clues that you can pick up on, is compliance with standards and charters.

This is a sine qua non condition for the smooth running of your commercial collaboration with your supplier. If all this seems very abstract to you, you are in the right place: Green Spa tells you everything about the charters and standards that organic wholesalers must respect.

Wanted! A wholesaler of organic beauty products
which respects the charters

In your opinion, what is the profile of the ideal wholesaler ? He is available, responsive, respectful, he has your best interests at heart... And as an organic supplier, he respects his commitments.

Because when we market organic cosmetic goods, all the subtlety is found in the quality of the products . In compliance with laboratory standards and charters. In taking into account labeling obligations. In the particular work of the composition of face and body creams.

And all this comes down quite simply to respecting the charters and standards which are imposed on suppliers of organic cosmetics. To help you see things more clearly and ask the right questions, Green Spa gives you all the information on these charters and standards.

Respect for ethical charters

In 2001, the European Commission published a green paper. This green paper is not just any regulation: it imposes the rules of conduct regarding the social responsibility of a company.

And these are requirements that also (and above all) fall to product suppliers. Particularly cosmetic products: the latter being applied directly to the skin of consumers, compliance with health and environmental requirements is essential.

The CSR of organic cosmetics suppliers therefore brings together all social and ecological concerns. It concerns all of a supplier's commercial activities and relationships with its customers.

Concretely, it is an ethical charter which becomes a real code of good conduct . The latter determines the commitments of a company and all the workers and collaborators who revolve around it.

The code of good conduct encompasses all of a company's practices: sustainable development, labor law, human rights, product creation, etc.

It is a charter that all suppliers of organic beauty products must respect. Indeed, the slightest flaw in this code of conduct may result in immediate cancellation of any commercial relationship.

You can find out about the supplier code of conduct by simply asking them about it.

Labeling and composition standards

The ethical charter alone brings together numerous areas of application. Concretely, it is expressed in all the choices and decisions of a supplier.

The same goes for organic cosmetic products that the supplier creates. These are considered products that can have an immediate impact on consumers. And rightly so: let’s say that an allergic reaction to a facial cream does not go unnoticed…

It is to guarantee the safety and well-being of your customers that suppliers of organic beauty products are required to comply with numerous standards.

These standards are sometimes European , sometimes decreed by French law... It all depends on the issue concerned.

This is for example the case for the composition of cosmetic products. Certain colorings are prohibited, as are preservatives... Certain cosmetic substances are subject to particular control, or even prohibited in the composition of beauty products.

In addition to the composition ( and the labels and certifications that we mentioned in another article ), cosmetic products are also subject to labeling regulations .

For example, each product must necessarily include legible and indelible information:

  • The name, company name and address of the person responsible
  • The volume content of the products
  • The expiration date or optimal use, even after opening
  • Precautions for use
  • The function of the cosmetic itself
  • The list of ingredients that make it up

If a statement is missing, your professional cosmetics supplier is in violation of legal and normative requirements.

Good manufacturing practices to follow

Values, labeling, composition... There remains only one element that we have not yet addressed: the design of beauty products ! Any cosmetic that is produced with the aim of marketing must respect strict rules.

This is called good manufacturing practices. The latter are defined by the European cosmetic regulation, in its article 8.

The latter sets out very precise standards, particularly with regard to health rules within laboratories. Methodologies, manufacturing , organization of human and material resources, product traceability , documentation provided, quality control... There are many requirements!

And everything mentioned in this European regulation may be subject to random checks by approved agencies. The objective of all this fuss is to guarantee the quality and safety of the product.

By extension, to ensure the safety of your clients, and therefore of your beauty institute or spa.

What if you chose a supplier
respectful of standards?

Compliance with standards and charters is a question that must be asked before choosing your future organic beauty products wholesaler. Indeed, respecting its commitments is an excellent indicator of the importance it attaches to the quality of its products.

Do not hesitate to take the time to find out about the issues raised. It is important to choose a supplier consistent with your commitments , but also and above all a wholesaler who does things well.

On the one hand because working with a person who takes the health of clients lightly, no thank you.

And on the other hand because the safety and sustainability of your beauty salon is also at stake. Working with a cosmetics wholesaler that suits you is the sine qua non condition for the smooth running of your days.
