Some brands go for the strictes possible environmental certification possible: organic, meaning that during the agriculture of 'natural' ingredients no synthetic pollutants have been applied. We approve quality marks Demeter, Ecocert and what more comes up, and the metric is percentage certified ingredients over the total use of ingredients by weight.
