The SANITARY REGISTRATION of FOOD is a code composed of 7 digits followed by the abbreviation of a province. The vast majority of brands and producers operate without it, with the very serious health risks that this entails. The usual practice of deception on the part of brands that operate without Food Health Registration is to include a cosmetic registration number (4 digits + an acronym) on the labels of drinkable Aloe Extracts / Juices / Juices to make it appear that they have the Food Health Registration and also not to indicate in the instructions for use that it is a drinkable product, although it is marketed for that purpose. Our health registration is in the name of Gairia Land, which markets its products under the trade name antigua with the number 21.026944/GC.
TESTED ON ANIMALS
Products certified to be cruelty-free, according to international standards.
These standards stipulate that no animal testing has been carried out in the production of the product or its ingredients, nor by its laboratories or suppliers.
We believe that consumer confidence is not only based on the quality of our products, but also on the protection and sustainability of the environment. That is why organic production combines the best environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity and the conservation of natural resources through automated drip irrigation. It is a production method that uses natural processes and substances, free of pesticides, fertilisers and antibiotics. Organic products contribute to the protection of the environment, certified by the C.R.A.E. with the code 3118P.
Organic production is a general system of agricultural management and food production that combines best environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity, the preservation of natural resources, the application of high animal welfare standards and production in accordance with the preferences of certain consumers for products obtained from natural substances and processes.
Organic agricultural production is regulated by European legislation, Regulation EC 834/2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products, whose implementing provisions (including the control system) are established by Regulation EC 889/2008.
This control is carried out in the Canary Islands by the Canary Islands Institute of Agri-Food Quality (ICCA), the competent authority for the control and certification of food products of agricultural origin obtained in the Canary Islands, or whose final handling is carried out by an organic industry established in the Canary Islands.
This mucilaginous polysaccharide helps to strengthen the immune system and is being investigated in the fight against diseases such as cancer and AIDS. This name comes from the Carrington laboratories, who named a series of polysaccharides present in Aloe Vera with the term acemannan. It is a potent cell regenerator, interacting with white blood cells that destroy bacteria and tumour cells, causing them to produce immune agents such as interferon.
There is a lot of research with tumour cells that are being treated with this mucopolysaccharide with very encouraging results in the fight against cancer. This opens a door of hope for many patients that currently the treatments that are used have an infinite number of side effects, it is also harmless to health and without side effects, although there is still nothing conclusive, Aloe Vera can be used alongside conventional treatments for the amount of benefits it provides, and also does not interfere with traditional treatments by taking Aloe Vera juice.
The cosmetics certified as natural or organic have been carefully controlled by Bio.inspecta and Organic Assignments which guarantee that these products really are.
The companies that decide to certify our products, we have a total transparency in our products and our brand is dedicated to the production of cosmetic products with ingredients of organic production and natural origin.
Bio.inspecta, Swiss certifier in charge of controlling that manufacturers comply with the standards and Organic Assignments, with the collaboration of Bio VidaSana certification, Vida Sana Association, part of the objectives of the organization with respect to the promotion of responsible consumption, and as a service to those producers, processors and marketers who claim a guarantee that reflects the ethics of their productions made in a more natural way, more artisanal, human scale, and aimed at increasing sustainability, environmental protection, local market and contribute to local development.
Currently the terms "natural" and "organic" in cosmetics are not protected in the same way as the term "organic" in food. Although there is a Regulation which requires that what is indicated on a cosmetic label is true and can be proven, in practice controls are few and far between and are not usually aimed at verifying whether the ingredients are natural or not.
This is compounded by the fact that the definition of "natural cosmetics" or "organic cosmetics" is not laid down in any law or regulation. Therefore, private certifiers, associations, manufacturers or groups of manufacturers have created their own standards and definitions.
These private standards must be controlled and certified by third parties; inspection bodies. Inspection bodies carry out inspections to ensure that manufacturers are complying with the standard under which they have chosen to produce their products. To ensure compliance with the standards, the certifiers carry out at least an annual audit to guarantee the quality of the products according to the different standards.
Whenever we find a seal on a product, we must always ask ourselves what it means and what is behind it. It is very important to know how to differentiate between seals of standards and seals of certifiers. For example, in the case of the Bio VidaSana standard certified by bio inspecta.
And, as there is a lot of cheating in everything, and there are companies that invent seals, it is better to know which seals are awarded by these certifiers.
The Cosmos Standard was created between five European organisations with their own standards for the certification of natural and/or organic cosmetic products, which decided to create a common seal, Cosmos. These are: ICEA; Cosmebio, BDIH, Soil Association and Ecocert.
Each of the organisations that agreed to create the Cosmos standard can certify according to this standard, and each uses its own seal associated with the word Cosmos. Because of this, you can find up to 10 different Cosmos seals (there are 5 organisations with two product categories each: Cosmos Organic and Cosmos Natural).
In addition to having their own cosmetics standards, some of these organisations are at the same time certifiers, such as ECOCERT or the Soil Association Certification, which can certify according to their own standards or according to others, such as Cosmos in the case of cosmetics (However, since 2017 all these organisations only offer the Cosmos Standard and have stopped offering certification according to their own Standards).
Certifiers are public or private companies that are themselves subject to control by an accreditation body to ensure their proper functioning. The control and certification protocols they use are very strict and clearly defined and guarantee the confidentiality of the information obtained in the control process and the absence of conflicts of interest of their staff.
