Ecocert Cosmos certified

I have certain skincare favourites that have been with me for a long time, but I also like trying out new products.

A common characteristic of the products I am interested in is that they are made from natural ingredients without superfluous fillers or harmful substances.

I like to switch between brands, but I don’t want a daily routine that calls for a whole range of different products. The products I use should be effective
without being too complicated

From HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 8

 

I had Yroli recommended to me at Hotelpension Aahøj in Sæby, where I often go if and when I need accommodation in northern Jutland. I have also noticed that many of the shops that carry the HÅNDVÆRK bookazine also sell Yroli’s products.

Yroli Skincare was founded in 2018 by Trine-Lise Buestad-Kjeldsmark and Jette Nørgaard Haulrig.

Trine is trained as a nurse and a sexologist. Jette has worked with communication.

Their common goal is to develop skincare that benefits the skin, while the production benefits the people who grow the ingredients. Another priority is to minimize the environmental impact of the production, transportation and packaging.

To set specific goals, Yroli has chosen to qualify for Ecocert Cosmos certification.

Ecocert Cosmos is a world-wide certification of organic skincare and cosmetics.

Ecocert Cosmos emphasizes traceability and verifies that the ingredients were responsibly grown with respect for the environment. The label also requires documentation for the journey of the ingredients and the product from the country/countries of origin to their final destination. Ecocert Cosmos also involves requirements for waste management in production.
There are different Ecocert Cosmos certificates, including ‘Organic’, ‘Raw’ and ‘Natural’.
The product will carry an Ecocert Cosmos Organic label when it has the ‘Organic’ certificate.
Products labelled Ecocert Cosmos Organic provide information about the share of natural and organic ingredients. The Ecocert Cosmos Organic certification requires at least 95% natural ingredients.
10% of the ingredients in rinse-off products must be organic, 20% of the ingredients in other products. At least 95% of the natural oils in the product must be organic. 

Yroli is also allergy-tested by the international organization AllergyCertified (founded in Denmark). AllergyCertified aims to minimize the risk of contact allergy by promoting knowledge and education. The certification involves a careful toxicological review and risk assessment of every single ingredient in the product.

All Yroli’s products are certified vegan, meaning that they do not contain animal ingredients, animal by-products or ingredients that have been tested on live animals.

Several of the products are in the process of qualifying for the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

This means that they meet requirements of the absence of hormone-disrupting substances and other problematic chemicals. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel considers the entire product lifecycle.

Yroli develops and manufactures its products in cooperation with pharmacists and biochemists at an Ecocert Cosmos-approved laboratory in Denmark that is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The company’s product development is based on the latest new research and developments in the field of active natural ingredients.

Yroli aims to minimize its use of packaging. There is no external packaging, and the containers are made from recycled plastic and recyclable glass.

Trine-Lise and Jette describe the beauty routine they both adhere to:
Our products are formulated to ensure healthy skin with a single, effective application. Thus, we reject the notion that more is better.

We focus on simple routines that can be incorporated into a busy life.
What we do ourselves is also what we recommend to others.
The morning routine involves washing your face with water, then applying Eye Serum to the skin around your eyes and using Face Oil in the rest of your face and your neck. The next step is make-up.
In the evening, remove any dirt and make-up using Micellar Water. Next, apply Eye Serum and Hydrate Overnight, which is a leave-on night-time mask.

Two products in the morning and three in the evening. Four products in total. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

If you have the time and the inclination, a facial yoga using our Face Oil is a wonderful way to start the day.

Jeg har mine hudplejefavoritter, som har fulgt med længe, men jeg tester også gerne nyt.

Fælles for de produkter, jeg interesserer mig for, er, at de er fremstillet af naturlige ingredienser og ikke indeholder unødvendigt fyld eller skadelige stoffer.

Jeg skifter gerne mellem forskellige produkter, men vil ikke påduttes at skulle anvende mange forskellige hver dag. Produkterne skal virke og ikke være for komplicerede.

Fra HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 8

 

Jeg har fået Yroli anbefalet på Hotelpension Aahøj i Sæby, som jeg gerne besøger, når og hvis jeg har behov for overnatning i det nordjyske – jeg har også noteret mig, at flere af de butikker, som sælger HÅNDVÆRK bookazine, har Yroli på hylderne.

Yroli Skincare blev etableret i 2018 af Trine-Lise Buestad-Kjeldsmark og Jette Nørgaard Haulrig.

Trine er uddannet sygeplejerske og sexolog. Jette har arbejdet med kommunikation.

Deres fælles mål har været, og er fortsat, at udvikle hudpleje, som er til gavn for huden, men også hudpleje, som er til glæde for dem, som dyrker de råvarer, der bliver til ingredienser. Desuden fokuserer de på, at produktion, transport og emballage giver mindst mulig miljøpåvirkning.

Yroli har, for at have konkrete mål at arbejde efter, valgt, at:

Ecocert Cosmos-certificere.

Ecocert Cosmos er en fælleseuropæisk certificering af økologisk hudpleje og kosmetik.

Ecocert Cosmos har fokus på sporbarhed og kontrollerer, at ingredienserne er dyrket ansvarligt og i respekt for miljøet, og der stilles krav om dokumentation for en ingrediens og et produkts rejse fra oprindelsesstedet og produktionsstedet til dets endelige mål. Ecocert Cosmos stiller også krav til affaldshåndtering under produktionen.
Der findes forskellige Ecocert Cosmos-certificeringer, herunder organic, raw og natural.
Der vil stå Ecocert Cosmos organic på produktet, når der er tale om en økologisk certificering.
På produkter mærket med Ecocert Cosmos organic vil det fremgå, hvor stor andelen af naturlige ingredienser er, og hvor høj procentdelen af økologi er. For at opnå Ecocert Cosmos Organic-certificeringen skal mindst 95% af ingredienserne være naturlige.
10% af ingredienserne i produkter, der vaskes af, skal være økologiske, og i produkter, der ikke vaskes af, skal mindst 20% af ingredienserne være økologiske. Mindst 95% af de naturlige olier i produktet være økologiske. 

Yroli er også allergi-certificeret af den internationale organisation AllergyCertified (grundlagt i Danmark).
AllergyCertified arbejder på gennem viden og oplysning at bidrage til at minimere risikoen for kontaktallergi. Certificeringen indebærer, at en toksikolog har gennemgået hver eneste ingrediens i produkterne nøje og foretaget en risikovurdering.

Alle produkterne er certificeret ‘vegan’, hvilket betyder, at produkterne ikke indeholder animalske ingredienser, animalske biprodukter eller ingredienser, der er testet på levende dyr.

Flere af produkterne er på vej til at blive svanemærket.

De lever således op til krav om fravær af hormonforstyrrende stoffer og andre problematiske kemikalier. Svanemærket ser på hele produktets livscyklus.

Yroli udvikler og producerer i samarbejde med farmaceuter og biokemikere på et Ecocert Cosmos-godkendt laboratorium i Danmark, som arbejder konkret med FN’s verdensmål. Produktudviklingen baseres på nyeste forskning og udvikling inden for aktive naturlige stoffer.

Yrolis emballage er minimeret så meget som muligt, de har ingen ydre emballage og er fremstillet af genanvendt plastic og glas, som kan recirkuleres.

Trine-Lise og Jette fortæller samstemmende om deres egen skønhedsrutine:
“Vores produkter er formuleret til at skabe sund hud med bare ét effektivt lag. Vi gør på den måde op med, at mere er bedre.

Vi har haft fokus på, at rutinerne skal være så enkle, så man faktisk får dem gjort i en travl hverdag.
Det, vi gør selv, er det, vi anbefaler!
Morgenrutinen består i at vaske ansigtet med vand, herefter Eye Serum ved øjenomgivelserne og Face Oil i resten af ansigtet og på halsen. Derefter makeup.
Om aftenen renser vi for snavs og fjerner makeup med Micellar Water. Dernæst bruger vi Eye Serum og Hydrate Overnight, der er en leave-on mask til natten.

To produkter om morgenen og tre om aftenen. Fire produkter i alt. Mere enkelt kan det ikke blive.”

 Hvis man har tid og lyst, er det skønt at lave en morgen-ansigtsyoga med vores Face Oil.”
