In 2007, we have got an “Eco Bio Cosmetics Certification”, by a qualified Certification Institute ICEA: a Consortium that control and certifies companies.
In the same year, we have got the inscription at Makeda Coop., a cooperative based in Ribera. In 2014, Sr. Chimera became President, bringing with him optimistic ideas to this. He still plays this role proudly.
