Kirkland, Wash (PRWEB) December 8, 2009
For the 2nd straight year, the influential German consumer advocate magazine, OEKO-TEST, gave cosmetic manufacturer Laverana, with its brands Lavera and Lavere, the highest marks in its 2009 review of natural and mainstream cosmetic companies. OEKO-TEST magazine, which translated means Ecological Test, evaluates a wide range products for public health and safety.
In 2008, OEKO-TEST awarded Laverana the highest score out of 33 manufacturers, ahead of 2nd place Weleda, 3rd place Wala (Dr. Hauschka) and mainstream brands such as Estée Lauder and LOreal after a review of over 1800 cosmetic products. In November 2009, OEKO-TEST again awarded Laverana the highest score, this time out of 36 companies tested.
