By far the majority of Rudolph Care products carry the Vegan Trademark label – with the exception of a few products that contain natural beeswax or honey, pullulan (made with enzymes from egg and milk), lanolin and/or carmine.
We are very conscious of our use of these ingredients. We only buy organically certified honey extract and beeswax which ensures that we only use ingredients from happy and healthy bees. The lanolin used by Rudolph Care is exclusively a by-product from wool production, and the ingredient, carmine, that adds a red color to our Marie lipgloss, is of natural origin and food-grade standard - just like every other ingredient in our lip products.
It is and has always been a matter of course that we do not test our products on animals. In fact, we are very happy to test them on ourselves.
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is a globally recognized standard for organic fibers, including independent certification of the entire supply chain. In other words, GOTS is your guarantee that a piece of fabric is made under proper working conditions, is free from harmful chemicals and is produced organically from harvest to final product.
Many Rudolph Care textile products are GOTS-certified. GOTS is important to Rudolph Care as it’s crucial that we implement our visions and ambitions from our primary beauty products in our additional universe of accessories. When we produce tote bags, they’re either made from 100% recycled textile or GOTS-certified textile. Therefore you will also find the GOTS label in several variants of our totes.

About B Corp
In 2021, we obtained the B Corp certification. We are proud of this achievement. Rudolph Care was founded on the ambition to promote sustainability in the beauty business and to contribute to positive global change. Our B Corp certification is an important strategic means to that end.

To certified B Corps, it is a declared goal to set higher standards for both individual and society. Representing every line of business, B Corp organizations work not only to be the best in the world, but also for the world.

How we choose certifications
Rudolph Care creates exclusive and advanced beauty products that prioritize sustainability as a crucial part of our care for both people and the environment. That is why by far the majority of our products are certified with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel in unique combination with the Ecocert COSMOS Organic label. None of our products contain any of the 26 known fragrance allergens that the EU recommends we avoid.
This double certification is your guarantee that the content and packaging of every single product has been carefully selected on the basis of cultivation, processing, production, working conditions and packaging that meets stringent environmental and health-related standards.
We always develop our products to meet the standards of our core certifications – the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and Ecocert COSMOS Organic – but unfortunately it is not always possible to attain both. That’s why our work with certifications also relies on informed choices that can always be accounted for. These choices must unite our responsible approach with all the things we believe good beauty products should be.
By far the majority of Rudolph Care products carry the Vegan Trademark label. Our products for children are certified with the international AllergyCertified label. Mommy & Me is also certified with Asthma Allergy Nordic.
Another certification we are proud to have is GOTS. GOTS, Global Organic Textile Standard, is an internationally recognized standard for organic fibers that ensures that for example our towel, Beach Buddy Towel, is produced responsibly and organically from harvest to final product. Rudolph Care also produces tote bags that are either made from 100% recycled textile or GOTS certified textile.
In 2021 Rudolph Care became a certified B Corp. To become a B Corporation, the applicant is assessed based on the corporation’s internal and external efforts. All certified B Corps has a common declared goal to live up to the highest standards for both the individual and society. No matter the profession of the organization, a B Corp does not only wish to be the best in the world – but also for the world. In other words: Rudolph Care was made to become a B Corp.
It's complex and challenging to develop products and combine certifications. This is because each label has its own priorities. Some certifications are especially difficult to combine. For example, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and Ecocert COSMOS Organic are very different as they set requirements for different parameters. COSMOS is very much concerned with the origin of ingredients whereas the Nordic Swan Ecolabel concentrates on the biodegradability of ingredients, the finished product and packaging. Rudolph Care constantly balances certifications, ingredient lists and a product’s properties. That is why our product development is never complete until we are satisfied with the combination and balance of these three parameters. It is in this continuous balance that Rudolph Care finds its strength and differentiates itself significantly on quality.
We are proud of our many certifications and are always on hand to provide further details if you have any questions. Please contact us at email@example.com.
