Welcome to the global cosmetic industry platform

ICADA, the international association for cosmetic products, cosmetic devices and dietary supplements.

ICADA particpates the working group-meetings of the EU Commission, the memberstates ministries, the authorities and of the scientific societies and provides up-to-date insider informations from all industry sectors to the more than 14.000 industry-members we are in contact with. ICADA follows regulatory procedures and defends the interests of sme.
The founder of the world’s first standard for organic and natural cosmetics heads the ICADA team. By that advantages ICADA has at its disposal more than 20 years of experience with standardisation of organic and natural cosmetics. ICADA offers a premium label for organic and natural cosmetics, which is not only particularly strict and reliable thanks to the double control system, it permits relatively few non-natural additives (short positive list of 120 derivatives) to be close to mother nature. A major commercial advantage of the ICADA premium label are small cost and small effort conditions for the authentic typically medium and small natural cosmetics companies.
