In 2008 married couple, Silke and Stephan had a vision that they made into a reality. They had a simple goal of creating a natural cosmetic brand providing the best of glamorous conventional cosmetics with certified, resource-conserving organic ingredients. benecos was born! bene meaning “good” in Latin and cos for “cosmetics” the brand literally means good cosmetics.

We only use high-quality formulas
Natural and organic oils and waxes
Principles of green chemistry to eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances

Natural and Organic cosmetics no longer means lack of choice.
Goodbye dull and boring. Hello vibrant and dynamic world of benecos cosmetics!
We all know how important it is to look after the planet. Reducing the use of plastic is at the forefront of most of our minds. Here at benecos we are doing our part for the planet too. At the start of 2019 we introduced our new it-Pieces make-up pallets which are re-usable pallets with fully recyclable infills. The pallet has an innovative push-in system which omits the need for magnets and each of the plastic-free it-Pieces refills is packed solely in paper.
All our products, except for the 8-free nail polishes, are certified with BDIH. BDIH are a European certification that ensures only natural ingredients are used in our products.
Since 2017 38 new benecos products have been certified COSMOS ORGANIC through BDIH. The COSMOS standard was agreed between 5 European certification bodies to stop consumer confusion with different certification labels and standards.
The benecos vegan product range has been registered with the UK Vegan Society, probably the most well known Vegan symbol world-wide.
At benecos we believe in “beauty without bunnies”. Naturally we are against all animal testing and we are listed on the positive list for animal-free cosmetics by PeTA.
