Created in 1985 in France, it is a voluntary label that identifies products that come from 100% organic farming or 95% if they are processed. It is kept in France because it is better known than the European stamp. Website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food:


It is a voluntary seal and means that the laboratory controls the type of plant (indicates the Latin name) and systematically analyzes the organoleptic properties as well as the composition of the essential oil through chromatography (to define the chemotype, abbreviated QT , that is, its main component). Because the composition could vary for the same plant family, depending on the place of collection, etc. This denomination is a guarantor of safety, traceability, efficacy and biochemical stability.
