Quality Assurance

An endless investment

During our long activities we have selected the best clones of plants and refined the processing techniques, but this was not enough.

We want to offer functional products and guaranteed quality. That is why we believe that when we finish our work, others must complete it.

Symbol of the quality and work commitment of the Casalvento Laboratories in nature is the company logo: a laurel crown with a cap of perfume above it. The shape of a drop to indicate the work of the great distillery

The corporate symbol of Casalvento recalls a perfume bottle and is stylized as a crown of green laurel leaves in the shape of a drop and a yellow brass cap above

Organic Certification

In 1950, the agricultural production structure of Chianti had made very little progress compared to previous periods. Cultivation methods were traditional and Chianina calves were the main driving force for plows that differed little from those used by the Etruscans and the Romans in remote times.

By treasuring that ancient experience, we have never used pesticides and, as chemical analysis have shown, our soil is pollutants free and, as the result, genuine and natural products for this “organic production” for Casalvento was immediately possible.

Sowing, harvesting in the right season, spinning and grafting at the time, fertilizing and fighting weeds are a real art, not just daily effort. It is here that the farmer’s experience makes the difference. Our products, the appeal of a complete control of the production chain, are non-commercial products; an appropriate phrase ?: “from the plants nursery to the bottle !”.

The Control Body

However, we can not self-certify. Inspections and checks are required by authorized European bodies and accredited at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. They issue us with the Certificates of Conformity and Origin to be credible in this area.

Biological Indicators

Even without the use of controls and sophisticated chemical analysis, a quick observation of the environment can exclude the use of pesticides. For example there would not grow poppies (Papaver Rhoeas) and fumar (Fumaria Officinalis) and there would not be mosses (Bryum Argenteum), licheni (Evernia Prunastri and Usnea Barbata) in the forests. Be yourself the quality controllers !

PRODUCT and HACCP certification

Safety Data Sheets, Technical Sheets and Certificate of Analysis

Compliance with this standard begins with the appropriate design of the processing premises and the notification to the Ministry of Health. The plants and the production cycle must be suitable for the transformation process, adequately trained and controlled personnel. Exhausted materials and environmental must be subjected to controlled disposal regime as provided by the Ministry of the Environment.

As extractive products contain potentially toxic active substances, distillation can not be freely carried out, but under the responsability of a Technical Responsible that certifies the documentation accompanying the product until its final use. A Master’s Degree is required for the analysis and editing of the sheets.

Certification of CLAIMS

Claims Certification System

The claim is propaganda purpose statement which, in order to be authorized, must actually comply with certain parameters. It is the main promise made to the consumer and can not refer to the properties (thought recognized) of a single ingredient, but to the complexity of the finished product.

A series of clinical trials conducted under medical supervision on a sufficient number of people are needed and followed by the statistical analysis of the results. It works by following international guidelines, with certified machines for purpose used and in a controlled environment.

We are actively involved in the certification process. Are you a company interested in validating the claims of your cosmetics ?  Tell us and you will find a solution !
