Eco-label certification is completely voluntary. At HTS BIO, we make sure that we are eco-certified because helping to create a more “ecologically correct” world is a core to our mission.
In our product ranges, you will find the NF ENVIRONNEMENT, EU ECOLABEL and ECOCERT labels.
Label, issued by the AFNOR, offers the following guarantees :
1. Protection of the environment: The labeled products have a limited impact on the environment.
2. Performance : The products are at least equally effective as similar products that do not wear the label.
3. Reliability : The label is only valid for a fixed period. Every three years, the label criteria are revised. Labeled products are re-examined by independent entities that decide whether or not to renew the certification.
« The flower» is the result of collaboration among members of the European Union.

Use : the product must, for example, use less water, energy and resources.
Disposal : packaging must be recyclable, reusable or biodegradable.
Only ecodetergents intended for indoor use can receive the ECOLABEL.

Perfumes must come from natural sources, and the vast majority of synthetic compounds (e.g. colorings) are banned.
