ISO 16128 - Natural ingredients - allowed Processes

Dear all

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice regarding the recent ISO16128 Standard which is sometimes quite unclear regarding the type of processes that would be allowed to consider an ingrediens as natural or derived from natural ?

Would you consider the following processes accepted or not by the ISO16128 ?

·         Ionizing radiation  (prohibited by most certification as Cosmos/ecocert, Natrue, Nature et Progrès)

·         Microwave (prohibited by Nature et Progrès)

·         Bleaching– Deodorisation without chemical use (only heat for example) (accepted by most certifications label)

·         Fermentation using genetically modified biocatalyst

Your help would be much appreciated

Best regards
