Beyond simply choosing mostly organic ingredients, we made a goal of achieving the highest level of organic and natural product certification that exists.
The COSMOS standard signature is a consumer guarantee that can be trusted far beyond certifying the organic content of a product. Over 8,000 approved ingredients and 7,000 raw materials are scrutinized from seed, to plot of land, to agricultural and harvesting methods, manufacturing practices – biodegradability of chemicals and solvents used in ingredient extraction and processing, to the sustainability of packaging down to the spring and ball bearing components in a lotion pump. The COSMOS-standard defines the criteria that haia must meet to ensure all products are genuinely organic, globally inscrutable and produced to the highest feasible sustainability levels.
Under the COSMOS organic standard, performance need not be sacrificed due to an ingredient’s plant-based origin, but rather enhanced due to the marriage of biotechnology and nature to produce immediate and noticeable results. We chose the COSMOS standard because:
Transparency – according to our 2018 GWI Consumer Insights Study, consumers are confused and want transparency. This independently authorized certification body ensures consumer safety.
The Best of the Best - COSMOS-certified products are produced to the highest standards for organic and natural cosmetics.
Beyond Product - the COSMOS standard provides oversight of the entire product lifecycle from agricultural site (the soil and seed) to finished product.
Global Acceptance - COSMOS is the recognized harmonized European Standard, collaborative, inclusive, comprehensive.
Partners | Suppliers are Accountable - all supply chain participants must have corporate sustainability plans. haia must ensure packaging is minimized, products are environmentally-friendly and all partners have an environmental and waste management plan as participants in the supply chain.
