What are organic certificates and what are the benefits for the consumer?
Today’s market is becoming more and more competitive and demanding, due to the entry of low quality products that are sold as natural aloe vera but have very low percentages. For this reason, manufacturers try to certify their products given the importance of demonstrating their quality, giving security and confidence to customers.
The intention of these certificates is to accredit that the composition of their products is what they claim to have, as there is an entity that ensures that this is the case. Manufacturers certify their products to give the necessary security to the customer that they are buying quality products and, if necessary, change the manufacturing process of their products to guarantee quality, healthiness…
They also carry out social and environmental awareness work by not using toxic or harmful compounds in their products, promoting sustainable agriculture and not testing their products on animals. In order to obtain the certificate, very restrictive requirements must be met.
The next step is to check exhaustively in some inspections, audits and tests with samples the manufacturing processes, materials, quality… and if everything is correct, the certificate will be granted.
Otherwise the manufacturer would have to change the manufacturing process or its raw material improving its quality and repeating all the previous process or it will not obtain the certification. In this way if we have a product that promotes for example “Organic Aloe Vera” if it has any certification such as ECOCERT we will have the security as consumers that this product contains aloe vera in the most natural and ecological way, and that its manufacturing processes have been adequate.
Certification Guarantees and End Client Benefits
The product certification then proves that a product is reliable or meets more rigorous quality standards than other similar products, this gives the customer the assurance that they are not being deceived in advertising or what is advertised about a product, because if it declares for example organic aloe vera or snail slime, the manufacturer must have demonstrated the consistency and quality in audits and inspections of its certification.
It is always beneficial to know if a product has certification, and if so, we should find out which requirements the product has fulfilled to obtain this certification, such as ecocert, luxuryspain, European organic agriculture…
We must also give importance to the certificates as consumers, since manufacturers do give it to them, so if consumers decide to buy mostly certified products we help manufacturers to continue designing and manufacturing higher quality products and in the case of organic and ecological products favouring a sustainable economy and the care of the ecosystem.
