BeVeg Vegan Certification is the best Vegan certification in Korea for products wishing to enter the US market.
The era of vegetarianism, which goes beyond a vegetarian diet by eating plants and fruits, has begun, in which the skin is cared for and decorated with plant ingredients. As myriad products claiming themselves as vegan, it has become increasingly hard to trust the genuineness of these products. This problem is solved by “BeVeg”, as for the products eyeing the US market, BeVeg is the best Vegan Certification for entering the US vegan market.
Veganism, which started in Europe and America, is expanding into veganism in line with the movement to protect animal rights. Veganism has established itself as a trend that affects not only food, but also cosmetics, fashion, and household items, as well as overall life. In particular, the MZ generation embraces the vegan lifestyle as a routine and a ritual, and embraces it deeply in their daily lives.
Global trends are also in line. The vegan cosmetics market is growing every year. Statista, a global market research institute, estimated the size of the global vegan cosmetics market to be 17 trillion won last year. The vegan cosmetics market is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 6.3% to reach KRW 23 trillion by 2025.
In the US, the craze for vegan cosmetics is strong. ‘Eco-friendly’, ‘sustainability’, ‘carbon neutrality’ and ‘plant-based’ have emerged as representative keywords in the US beauty market. This is why domestic companies that are about to export to the United States should pay attention to vegan certification.
The BeVeg system, a representative vegan certification used in the US and global markets, will be implemented for the first time in Korea.
NSF International (CEO Yang Kyung-hee) announced that it will officially operate BeVeg, a US cosmetic vegan certification, from this month.
BeVeg, a US vegan certification, is applied not only to cosmetics, but also to foods, health functional foods, and pharmaceuticals. BeVeg is provided from finished cosmetic products to processes and services. It is an international standard that guarantees the vegan conformity of products and manufacturing processes. Cosmetic brand companies, raw material companies, manufacturing plants, subdivision companies, and distributors can acquire BeVeg Vegan certification.
In particular, NSF International has ISO/IEC 17065 accreditation to provide BeVeg vegan certification. Currently, NSF International is the only vegan auditing body in Korea that has applied this standard, which is ISO 17065 ‘Requirements for product, process and service certification bodies’.
NSF International is a strategy to broaden the way for domestic cosmetics companies to export to the US by introducing BeVeg, a credible US vegan certification.
NSF International and TNC auditing bodies Institute held a seminar on ‘Vegan Certification for American Market Entry’ at COEX 308, Samseong-dong, Seoul on September 21st (Wednesday) from 10:30 am to 12:30 am.
In this seminar, △ the latest consumption trends of US consumers and the benefits of BeVeg Vegan certification (NSF International branch manager Yang Kyung-hee) BeVeg Vegan certification standards and requirements (NSF International product certification team leader Lee Sang-hyo) △ Preparations for vegan certification (Kim Kwan-jung, TNC Co., Ltd.) Accreditation Institute, Ph.D.), etc. had been explained.
TNC Certification Institute, a cosmetics and food consulting agency, is in charge of marketing and consulting for BeVeg Vegan certification in cooperation with NSF International.
Hong Young-bae, CEO of TNC Certification Institute, said, “K-beauty and K-food are popular amid the K-culture craze. In line with the value consumption trend, consumer interest in vegan certification has also increased. At this seminar, we will accurately inform the American market entry points and BeVeg Vegan certification.”
An official from NSF International said, “NSF is an American institution that develops and enacts American national and international standards. It is certified organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is also responsible for inspecting and examining the safety and quality of food and water.”
He continued, “NSF International, the Korean branch of NSF, is the only Vegan certification body in Korea that has obtained ISO17065. We issue vegan certification that meets global standards. It is an essential procedure for a domestic cosmetic brand to identify the qualifications of an examination agency before it receives vegan certification. It is helpful for export by carefully examining whether it is a vegan certification that is practically used abroad and whether it meets international standards,” he said.
Finally, “BeVeg is the best Vegan Certification for entering the US vegan market and is also highly reliable in the global market. Products bearing the BeVeg vegan certification logo can gain public confidence from consumers around the world.”
