    The double-control System

    Some label associations control themselves | Control should be provided by independent third parties | ICADA is third-parties-inspected and re-inspects the external inspectors: double-control system.

    The ICADA natural cosmetics label is subject to a very strict inspection procedure. All products registered for the ICADA label are strictly controlled by two bodies:

    1. through a multitude of independent certifiers
    2. annual double examination by experienced cosmetic chemists in the association

    Please compare the ICADA test method (ICADA natural cosmetics).
    There are associations which only control the products themselves. This is roughly comparable to a lift mechanic who inspects the built-in lift itself and does not instruct a neutral testing organization with the safety inspection.

    And there are associations which themselves do not take a look at the products with their association sign.

    ICADA does both.
