ONEgroup choose to be third party certified organic to the highest international standards. Their brand Miessence is the first skin care product range on the planet to be submitted and comply with, the rigorous processing and labelling requirements for certified organic food products.
The benefits of certified organic products go much further than the products themselves. This approach effectively removes chemicals from the agricultural practices of growing our ingredients, as well as removing the manufacture of synthetic chemicals, and their by-products, that would otherwise go into equivalent conventional commercial products. In addition, it removes chemical exposure of our customers when using these products and of the environment when some of these products are washed down drains or disposed of.
Certified products not only promote organic farming, health and public awareness of environmental ethics, they also create a more sustainable supply chain.
For a product to be organic, there are conditions from the grower all the way through transportation, processing and packaging, so that all stakeholders in this supply chain make a business of becoming more green. All our suppliers must meet international organic standards. In the case of ONEgroup, we are the processor and distributor of our products and continue to find ways to make all aspects of our business practices greener.
In promoting product integrity, ONEgroup not only uses organic ingredients wherever it is available and possible, but we also meet organic food standards. We continue to support this high standard at a time where other companies are just beginning to attempt this and are lobbying for changed and lower standards for non-food products such as skin care.

Benefits of Certified Organic Ingredients
Good for the Soil – Organic systems rely on a modern and scientific understanding of ecology and soil science, while also depending on traditional methods of crop rotations to ensure fertility and weed and pest control.
Good for the Environment – Organic systems aim to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources. Organic production aims at all times towards sustainability whilst having best management of the environment and wildlife as a priority.
Good for People – Organic based ingredients have been shown in a number of studies to contain more vitamins, nutrients and cancer-fighting antioxidants than non-organic ingredients.
No Synthetic Chemicals – Organic systems prohibit the use of artificial chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers.
No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) – Certified Organic products are produced without GMOs, which are prohibited in the standards for organic food and farming.
