When the products and services started to circulate very quickly in the national and international arena, it created a need for security and control. The Eco-Label system, or more clearly the environmental product or service labels, arose from such a need. In this system, it is guaranteed that products and services have certain criteria and qualifications. When, where and under what conditions any product or service is produced, the usage performance of this product, its disposal after use and the re-use patterns, in short, the life cycle of the product is explained to everyone.
Our company has also designed Ekomark © Standard in accordance with the conditions of our country with the same approaches. This system is based on voluntarism in our country and there is no coercion.
In fact, prior to the European Union's efforts, in the 1970 years, debates on the rise of energy and oil prices and the associated environmental problems and climate change have started. The use of labels that show the lowest energy efficiency and emission standards required in those years were the first examples of environmental labels today. As energy and climate debates began to form an international agenda, the first legal regulation on environmental labeling was made in the European Union in 1987. This system came into force with the bylaws published in 1992.
In the same years, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standards were published by the International Standards Organization. These ISO 14020 Environmental Labels and Declarations were then published. This standard specifies the general framework for environmental product and service labeling. Following this, ISO 14021, ISO 14024 and ISO 14025 standards were published and the framework of today's environmental labeling system was created.
Cosmetic products have become a part of daily life. However, these cosmetic products contain some substances that harm human health in the long term, but not in the short term. Cosmetic products are a cause of various skin conditions. However, it is possible to produce cosmetic products in a way that does not harm human health and the environment. Which substances are present in the cosmetic products and whether these substances are harmful can be determined by testing and analysis studies. In this sense, an environmental label is placed on cosmetic products that do not pose a health or environmental hazard.
To date, only on foreign cosmetics products found on this environmental tags it can now also be produced in our country. Designed by our organization Ekomark © Standard If the products are found to meet the criteria determined by the standard, Ekomark © Tag use is granted.
