ISO 16128-2:2017 describes approaches to calculate natural, natural origin, organic and organic origin indexes that apply to the ingredient categories defined in ISO 16128â€‘1. This document also offers a framework to determine the natural, natural origin, organic and organic origin content of products based on the ingredient characterization.
Neither ISO 16128â€‘1 nor this document addresses product communication (e.g. claims and labelling), human safety, environmental safety, socio-economic considerations (e.g. fair trade), characteristics of packaging materials or regulatory requirements applicable for cosmetics.
ISO 16128-2:2017 builds on and enhances ISO 16128â€‘1. It is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 16128â€‘1.
