Traceability is differentiated in:
- Downstream Tracing (downward- directed retracing from producer to consumer) and
- Upstream Tracing (upward-directed retracing from consumer to producer).
Our concise lot number system provides highest transparency and safety. Every delivery of raw material immediately receives a lot number (batch number) from us or our manufacturers. The lot number accompanies the raw material through all production phases up to the bottling of the final product. The number is printed on the label according to the German Lot Marking Regulation, in order to be able to retrace the origin of the end product during all phases of production upward-directed (i.e. from consumer directly to the farmer) and downward-directed (i.e. from the farmer directly to the consumer).

All our products marked with this guarantee seal are certified according to our Vegan criteria. Veganism is a philosophy and life-style trying - as far as practicable – to avoid all forms of exploitation of and cruelty to animals capable of suffering.

We own the guarantee seal "kbA Qualität" (“controlled organic farming quality”).
All our products and raw materials marked with this guarantee seal, as for example our cosmetics, come from controlled organic farming. But due to their objective characteristics, those products do not however apply to the EU Organic Council Regulation 834/2007 (former EU Organic Council Regulation No. 2092/91). Hence, they neither carry an eco label nor any other hint towards the EU Organic Council Regulation.

Our Argan edible oil is controlled and officially authorized according to the Novel Food Regulation and may be marketed by our company throughout all countries of the European Community.
In order to protect public health all new types of food and food ingredients - briefly called Novel Food - have to pass a uniform safety check before they may be sold in the European community. Argan edible oil is such a so-called Novel Food and therefore subject to authorization. The application for authorization has to be filed at a responsible national authority. In Germany the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food safety (BVL) is the authority in charge regarding this matter. After the authorization has been granted, it is obligatory for the applicant to inform the DG Health and Consumer Protection of the European Commission in Brussels about placing the Argan oil on the market.

Durch die Beteiligung an dem dualen System des grünen Punktes für das Recycling von Verkaufsverpackungen leisten wir weit mehr als nur die Erfüllung unserer Verpflichtungen aus der Verpackungsverordnung. Wir leisten einen Beitrag zum Klimaschutz und zur Schonung von Ressourcen. Recycling ist in der Tat ein wichtiger Faktor zur Reduzierung von Treibhausgasen und trägt damit entscheidend zum Klimaschutz bei.

Our approach to packaging is to completely abandon plastics with plasticizers, like Soft-PVC, and make way for other products made of, for example, PP (Polypropylene) or PE (Polyethylene). For instance our canisters are produced in Germany from PE in a high-pressure procedure (HD-PE) and are food-save.
