At Nopa Nordic Family, there are various eco-labels you can trust on the packaging when you want eco-friendly products for everyday life. That way, there’s no doubt you’ve made the right choice.

What do the labels mean?

The Nordic Ecolabel

The Nordic Ecolabel is the official Ecolabel of the north, administered and used in all the Nordic countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, however you may also find it in the other EU countries, Korea, Australia and China.

When you buy products with the Nordic Ecolabel, you can be sure that each product is among the least environmentally harmful in its category, that the product is of high quality and that it takes your health into account. The Swan label is also your guarantee that the product actually works, because its function and effectiveness are tested. The Swan label has strict requirements for the environment, chemical content and sustainability.

The EU Flower

The EU Flower is the official European eco-label, used and administered in all EU countries.

When you buy products with the EU Flower, you can be sure that each product is among the least environmentally harmful in its category, that the product is of high quality and that it takes your health into account. The EU Flower is also your guarantee that the product actually works, because they thoroughly test the function of the product. The EU Flower looks at the whole life cycle of the product and sets strict requirements for the environment, sustainability and the use of chemicals.

The Blue Wreath

The Blue Wreath is Astma-Allergi Denmark’s allergy label, which focuses on allergy, eczema and irritation. You can therefore reduce the risk of allergies if you choose products with the Blue Wreath.

When you buy products with the Blue Wreath, you can be sure that the individual product does not contain perfumes, dyes and product make-up, as well as other ingredients that have a particular risk of causing skin allergies.

Asthma Allergy Nordic

Asthma Allergy Nordic is a collaboration between Astma-Allergi Denmark, the Asthma and Allergy Association of Norway and the Asthma and Allergy Association of Sweden. The label is brand new and will make it even easier to find mild products selected with care. Products with this label are your guarantee of hypoallergenic content that reduces your risk of allergy. Asthma Allergy Nordic does not allow perfumes and is very critical of the ingredients list. You can safely choose products labelled with Asthma Allergy Nordic if you have asthma or allergies.

ECOCERT

ECOCERT is a French eco-label for natural and organic certified products. It is one of the world’s most respected international certifications. You can find it on personal care products and cleaning products, among others.

ECOCERT has strict requirements for the environment and follows the entire life cycle of the product. That’s why they also check us as a manufacturer and come for repeated visits. The ECOCERT label is used in over 80 countries. You will always be able to see on a product that carries ECOCERT how much of the product is organic or natural. Synthetic fragrances are not allowed and all ingredients in the product must be sustainably produced.

Vegan Society

The Vegan label is known all over the world and can be found on more than 22,000 products. The Vegan label is your guarantee that none of the ingredients are of animal origin and that no animal testing has been done on the product. The development of the product must never have involved animals and additives must never be in contact with animals.

A broad collaboration

Nopa Nordic cannot do all the work alone. Our success in creating environmentally friendly products for your everyday life depends on a broad and strong collaboration with others who are also passionate about clean products and care for the environment, and who have extended knowledge in the field.

That’s why we work with universities, test centres and a host of skilled raw material producers, all of whom have knowledge in this field. We also make sure we’re always up to date with what’s going on in the consumer world: What’s trending? What products are in demand? Where is the trend taking us? etc.
