FOR YOU, THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR FUTURE
Rudolph Care wants to make a positive difference – both for your skin and for the world in which we live. That is why we create exclusive beauty products that take a sustainable approach to people and the environment. We ensure this by being certified with both the Nordic Ecolabel and the organic certification Ecocert/COSMOS*. This dual certification is your guarantee that the contents and packaging of each individual product are carefully selected on the basis of cultivation, processing, manufacturing, working conditions and packaging that meet stringent requirements in terms of environment and health. This allows you to enjoy your luxurious Rudolph Care skin care products with a good conscience.
A few of our products are only certified with the Nordic Ecolabel, and there is always a special reason for this. For example, the Ecocert/COSMOS certification does not cover sun care products. This is why Rudolph Sun and Rudolph Sun Kids only carry the Nordic Ecolabel. The only other product that does not carry both labels is our Forever Soft Conditioner. This is due to the fact that there is no softening conditioner ingredient that both meets COSMOS requirements and those for the quality and effectiveness we feel that a conditioner should have. However, we have not compromised on the contents, which are comprised of both organic and natural ingredients, and with the beautiful Nordic Ecolabel you are assured that Forever Soft Conditioner was created with regard for you and for the environment.
* Over the course of 2017 all Rudolph Care products will transition from the Ecocert to the COSMOS organic certification.
THE NORDIC ECOLABEL
The Nordic Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the Nordic countries. The purpose of the Nordic Ecolabel is to reduce the environmental impact of consumption to benefit people, the environment and the Earth’s resources. For these reasons, the Nordic Ecolabel sets stringent environmental requirements on all phases of the product life cycle – and stringent requirements for chemicals to protect the environment and your health. Skin and hair products featuring the Nordic Ecolabel are absolutely free of methylisothiazolinone (MI) and other preservatives classified as allergenic. These products neither contain other suspected endocrine disruptors found on the European Union list. And they are completely free of microplastics. The Nordic Ecolabel also sets stringent requirements for beauty product packaging – in terms of the amount and type of packaging.
”Rudolph Care leads the way with the Nordic Ecolabel certification. It shows consumers and other manufacturers that exclusive beauty products can be both gentle to the environment and to us humans. The Nordic Ecolabel views products as complete entities, from raw ingredients to manufacturing, use, disposal, recycling, and this perspective is what gives the Nordic Ecolabel its strength. When you choose a product certified with the Nordic Ecolabel, you contribute to driving product development in a more sustainable direction.”
Martin Fabiansen, Director of Ecolabelling Denmark

COSMOS is the Europe-wide certification for organic cosmetics and is used in more than 45 countries. Products carrying the COSMOS certification always feature information on the percentage of natural ingredients, and the percentage of organic ingredients. To obtain the COSMOS Organic certification, at least 95 % of the ingredients must be natural. In addition, at least 10 % of the ingredients in products that can be washed off, and at least 20 % of the ingredients in products that cannot be washed off must be organic. Finally, at least 95 % of the natural oils and extracts in the product must be organic. COSMOS also verifies that the ingredients are produced responsibly and with respect for the environment.
The requirements of the Nordic Ecolabel and COSMOS ensure that processing and manufacturing must take place with regard for the environment and employees. And when it comes to packaging, Rudolph Care is beautifully packaged in accordance with the specific requirements of both labels.

The French organic cosmetics certification Ecocert has adorned Rudolph Care since the beginning in 2008. Ecocert is a French-founded organic certification used in more than 80 countries across the globe.
Products labelled with Ecocert must declare the percentage of organic ingredients. Ecocert has two product certifications; one certifies “natural” products and specifies that a minimum of 5% of the ingredients must be organic. The other certifies organic products, where at least 10% of the ingredients must be organic and at least 95% natural substances. Rudolph Care products belong to the latter group and are certified organic by Ecocert.
In 2015, Ecocert became part of the Europe-wide organic standard, COSMOS. The purpose of the cooperation is to create transparency and make it easier for consumers to understand requirements and labels. Rudolph Care products are currently transitioning from the Ecocert to the COSMOS certification – and over the course of 2017 all Rudolph Care products will carry the COSMOS Organic label.
All Rudolph Care products are made with respect for the environment and your health. In addition, our products for children are especially mild, and our Lip Balm Kit and Rudolph Sun Kids are certified with the international allergy certification AllergyCertified. This means that there are no known allergens or allergenic preservatives in the products, and that each ingredient is assessed by a toxicologist. The products are also 100% fragrance-free. So you can protect your child's delicate skin with a clear conscience and without compromising on quality.
