In order to provide the natural cosmetics standard and the well-known BDIH seal with an even firmer footing on the international stage too, the BDIH established the International Organic and Natural Cosmetics Corporation (IONC GmbH). Its role is to organise global checks on cosmetics to ensure that they meet the BDIH Standard. The BDIH seal for certified natural cosmetics is therefore also available as an unmistakeable symbol in a standard English-language version from the IONC for global use. However, the BDIH continues to be the sole proprietor of the BDIH-Standard and the BDIH seal for certified natural cosmetics.
