NATRUE factsheets are clear and easy-to-read factual documents on specific topics of interest to the public and PR agencies alike. In contrast to position papers, fact sheets address “static” topics and are not subject to regular updating.

Fact Sheets


NATRUE’s position papers are documents informing about NATRUE’s policy as expressed by its members on a specific topic and at a specific time. Position papers must therefore be agreed upon by our members. NATRUE’s Secretariat drafts the position papers in close collaboration with the NATRUE internal Working Groups and they are regularly updated under different version numbers as issues evolve.

Position Papers


NATRUE actively participates and contributes to the emerging and evolving regulatory framework impacting natural and organic cosmetics. We work hand-in-hand with decision-makers and relevant stakeholders across the European institutions and international bodies (NATRUE’s EU transparency register number 75060586073-86.) Contributions from NATRUE across relevant policy consultations are outlined below.
