Nordic Swan Ecolabel

Nordic Swan Ecolabel

Environmental certification with international recognition and the official ecolabel of the Nordic countries. The aim of The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is to reduce the overall environmental impact from our consumption. The entire life cycle of a product, from raw material to production, use, disposal and recycling, is included in the assessment, when drawing up the requirements for an ecolabelled product – for the benefit of people, the environment and the earth’s resources.

Nordic Swan ecolabelled skin and hair care products

We are all exposed to chemical substances from the things we surround ourselves with. They affect the environment and they affect us. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel sets tough requirements for chemicals. This is good for your health and for the people who manufacture the products, and it is important to the environment and our future.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel does not allow manufacturers to add chemicals and substances such as:

  • MI or other preservatives classified as sensibilisising.
  • Parabens or other ingredients on EU’s list of potential endocrine disruptors.
  • Microplastic.

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel also ensures that:

  • Products for babies and young children are free from perfume - including so-called natural fragrances.
  • Products for adults are either free from perfume or comply with strict requirements regarding perfume.
  • Products comply with strict requirements regarding the amount and types of packaging used.


Sum up - The Nordic Swan Ecolabel:

  • Tough environmental requirements - in all relevant phases of the product's life cycle
  • Tough requirements for chemicals – benefit the environment and your health
  • Tightening of requirements – drives sustainable development
  • … certification and inspections – so you can feel save


The Nordic Swan Ecolabel has tough environmental requirements, in all relevant stages of the product’s life cycle. It is the official ecolabel of the Nordic countries based on the latest research and knowledge, a holistic label, that cares about health and environment.
