NOTICE 23.1.2024

FI-Natura prohibits the use of peat in certified products

FI-Natura ry has investigated the cosmetic use and responsibility of peat.


Peat is a traditional Finnish cosmetic raw material with useful skin care properties. However, peat is also a very slowly renewable material, the removal of which endangers valuable marsh habitats and causes emissions that promote the eutrophication of waterways.


As a result of the investigation, the association states that there are environmentally responsible problems associated with the use of peat, which prevent its continued use in FI-Natura-certified products.


The ban is valid for new products to be certified from January 1, 2024. For already certified products, the transition period is until December 31, 2026, by which time the product changes caused by the peat ban must be recertified.
