Over the years, Lavera, Benecos and True Natural has garnered quite a few awards for their all natural and organic cosmetics and skin care products! You'll see a few notable ones listed here:
The International GREEN BRANDS organization is an independent body that recognizes companies who are truly committed to environmental sustainability. The GREEN BRAND award is only given to brands that are committed to climate protection and environmental responsibility - not those that merely pay lip-service to green values. After passing a unique 3 level validation procedure (nomination by independent institutes in the field of environmental sustainability, in-depth evaluation by a 10 member jury, AND assessment by SERI - an international institute for sustainability), Lavera was awarded the GREEN FIRE Germany 2013/2014 seal by GREEN BRANDS in June 2013
OekoTest is the pre-eminent german consumer safety magazine dedicated to evaluating products for public safety and environmental friendliness. All products are tested by independent labs and reviewed solely based on their merits. Lavera products have been tested by OekoTest since 1992 and awarded more than 700 times. Benecos, a fresh newcomer but now the fastest growing natural beauty brand in Germany, has already received numerous SEHR GUT (very good - the highest rating) awards!
OekoTest Greenest Brand
In 2008 and in 2009, OekoTest Magazine compiled all its skin care reviews across over 30 mainstream AND natural manufacturers and rated each. In both years, Lavera came out with the TOP RANK - beating out all other cosmetic manufacturers. Read more about how Lavera and other manufacturers ranked in the OekoTest reviews.
True Natural Sunscreens
True Natural started in 2010 with a mission to create the safest and best performing All Natural Sunscreens that are100% Mineral-Based, Biodegradable, Gluten-Free, Cruelty-Free and Nanoparticle-Free. Since then, True Natural sunscreens ranging from SPF 15 to SPF 50, have always been top rated with the Environmental Working Group (we're also an EWG Sun Safety Coalition Partner!) and have achieved numerous awards. Here are a few we like to brag about!
