The simplest and best answer to this question, is that Ilike by Szep Elet is a product of the great country of Hungary, and in the EU (The European Union), they have the strictest guidelines of organic guidelines in the world.
It’s like participating at a high school event, when you already qualified for olympics. So, Ilike organic skin care already has the highest and strictest certifications in the world.
In the United States of America, the USDA allows hundreds more ingredients and chemicals that the EU would never dream about allowing.
Additionally, Ilike products are BDIH certified, with the strictest international standards. The makers of the products, marked with the BDIH "Certified Natural Cosmetics" seal, use natural raw materials such as plant oils, fats and waxes, herbal extracts and essential oils and aromatic materials from controlled biological cultivation or controlled biological wild collection. In addition to the careful selection of raw materials, the ecological impact of each product plays an important role.
When I personally went to visit Hungary, I got to visit the iIlike manufacturing facility. It is a very small, family run business. While we were visiting, we were not able to tour the entire facility as they were doing the yearly testing & certification standard testing, and protocols to make sure that the facility was operating under its strict guidelines.
In 2005, Hungary burned crops that Monsasanto planted to keep the country free of GMO’s.
