Quality

Trust is good - Control is better!

We made ourselves very high quality criteria for our products, especially for our essential and fatty oils. That’s why we test our 100 % natural essential oils every year from independent institutes like QC&I and Ecocert, as well as the Demeter association.

The high quality of TAOASIS is visible on the label

TAOASIS quality seal - Best quality 100% nature

1. Quality
Or most important goal is to maintain the consistent quality of all our products. This has been proven in tests conducted by independent institutes throughout Germany. Tested TAOASIS products have received the highest rating from both the consumer organisation Stiftung Warentest and the magazine Ökotest! Aromacosmetic products are produced in accordance with the strict guidelines for natural cosmetics. We work in compliance with the GMP standard for medicines and pharmaceuticals and have been ISO 9001:2008 certified since 2002.

2. Ecological responsibility
From the cultivation of aromatic plants to shipping, we are acutely conscious of environmental sustainability, conservation of natural resources and recycling options. We promote biological cultivation as an investment in our children‘s future and work with regenerative energy from Greenpeace Energy. Shipping is climate-neutral. We prefer to use FSC® or PEFC-certified raw materials from climate-neutral and sustainable cultivation for packaging, brochures and this catalogue.

3. Thinking globally. Acting regionally
TAOASIS is building a global network on the basis of this motto which on the one hand establishes a platform for new cooperative ventures in disadvantaged countries and simultaneously promotes the domestic economy, particularly small handicraft businesses.

4. Expertise in aromatherapy
We offer education programmes, specialist literature and practical customer information exclusively for
active pharmacies. Innovative sales concepts and unusual events such as TaoMobil successfully invigorate
the image of pharmacies, ensuring long-term customer loyalty.

5. Showing our colours
Our delight in enthusiasm for and love of essences give us the strength to make aromatherapy even more accessible to even more people! Loyalty and fairness to our customers, employees and suppliers are qualities which we regard to be naturally self-evident.
