ÖKO-TEST evaluation criteria

The ÖKO-TEST evaluation criteria are based on current research results, which may also differ from the EU Cosmetics Directive and the Cosmetics Regulation. ÖKO-TEST bases its evaluations on the study results of the Information Network of Departments of Dermatology (Göttingen) and the University of Zürich, amongst others. In some instances, their own test parameters go beyond existing laws if current findings confirm negative effects on the human organism.

ÖKO-TEST evaluation examples
  • ÖKO-TEST does not evaluate all 26 of the fragrances classified by the EU as allergenic, as only a few fragrances have a significant allergic potential in relation to their use in cosmetic products. It also distinguishes between isolated, synthetic fragrance ingredients and essential oils with their natural fragrance structures.

  • Synthetic UV filters are classified by ÖKO-TEST as dangerous and are devalued one level (effects on the endocrine system have been demonstrated, in particular in growth-related phases)

  • Chlorinated aluminium salts block the pores and prevent natural perspiration – ÖKO-TEST therefore marks down one level for these.

  • PEG and PEG derivatives lead to devaluations by two levels as they have been demonstrated to affect the skin's protective barrier.

  • Polycyclic musk compounds are allergenic and accumulate in adipose tissue – ÖKO-TEST marks down two levels for these.
