Eco Bio Detergence and Eco Detergence

Eco Bio Detergence and Eco Detergence

Eco&Eco Bio Detergence, certifies home detergents (plates, laundry, flooring, etc.) and adjuvants for both home and professional use. It guarantees detergent products obtained by favouring the use of biological ingredients, substances of natural origin characterized by a low environmental impact and skin compatibility.


What it is certified

The products of the Eco&EcoBio Detergence ICEA are obtained using of organic products and/or substances of natural origin, preferring the use of chemical substances of natural origin characterized by low environmental impact and skin compatibility. The ICEA specification was created by taking ECOLABEL criteria as a reference, adopting in several cases more restrictive parameters and specifications, in particular regarding theenvironmental impact. In addition to the environmental impact of the raw materials used, the specification proposes requirements and limitations on packaging. The control system also provides for a verification of the performance and product effectiveness, capable of attesting its efficacy with respect to similar products, even if not certified, that have a market leader position. As in the cosmetics sector, there is no law establishing what a biological and/or natural detergent is. Certification becomes, therefore, a voluntary choice pursued by the most evolved and virtuous companies that feel the need to provide customers with greater guarantees, subjecting themselves to the controls of an independent and professional organization that guarantees their correct operation and the ecological qualities of the products. The rules governing the functioning of the certification are public, transparent and equal for all manufacturers with the Icea trademark. Compliance shall be declared by means of a voluntary eco-label subject to external (or third party) certification, type 1 label (ISO 14024). The ICEA specification and certification system for Eco&Eco BioDetergence and its relevant certification are normally considered equivalent to the voluntary ECOLABEL labelling system also in the green purchases of Public Administration (Green Public Procurement). Eco&EcoBio Detergence productsguarantee:

  • Formulations consisting of at least 95% ingredients of natural origin.
  • In the case of Eco Bio Detergence products, surfactants, active ingredients and plant extracts from organic farming and certified for a minimum of 20% (excluding powdered products).
  • Mandatory tests on the products in order to verify its washing efficacy.
  • Mandatory dermatological test for products coming into contact with the epidermis.
  • True labels and claim supported by reliable scientific tests or bibliography.
  • An independent control and certification system with international accreditations, which makes the rules, lists of certified companies and products (including ingredients) public and answers the questions posed by consumers.

How to certify

The certification process is divided into 4 main phases:

  1. Initial assessment of the products and production, which includes, among other things, the assessment of the composition of the products for which certification is required, as well as the conformity of raw materials through the technical data sheets of all components. All organic ingredients must be certified by approved inspection and certification bodies. Patch tests are also required (only for products that come into contact with hands) and washing performance evaluation tests.
  2. In situ inspection to verify that the products actually comply with the requirements of the product specification; the correct organisation and management of manufacturing processes and internal procedures that could compromise the conformity of the product itself; compliance with the relevant environmental criteria.
  3. Issue of the Certificate of Conformity based on the information and data collected as part of the assessment and verification process. The certificate contains the list of certified products and is distinguished in relation to the classification of ECO BIO DETERGENCE and ECO DETERGENCE.
  4. Annual surveillance, which includes periodic inspections of production units, storage centres and product distribution centres to verify the maintenance of compliance conditions. ICEA also carries out samplings and products analysis both at the production plants and at the points of sale.
