Adhering to these standards guarantees a rigorous approach to quality assurance, throughout the manufacturing and distribution processes by implementing best practices. This means that customers can be assured of consistent quality and safety. Although the GMP standard was originally intended for use in Europe, the reputation and acceptance of EFfCI certification amongst multinational cosmetic companies has led to its international adoption by suppliers,” explained the company.

Croda’s certified sites are located in Europe, Latin America, Asia and North America.
