The ICADA Premium Seal of Quality is licensed by contract only to organic and natural personal care companies serving specialist suppliers, in order to uphold the distinction between specialist suppliers and cheap discount stores.
ICADA's main affinity is with specialist suppliers, whose expertise and awareness of nature provide an excellent basis for the sale of organic and natural personal care products. Businesses that do not offer the qualified expertise of specialist suppliers should not be able to compete with specialist suppliers by having the same natural cosmetic seal of quality.

ICADA labelling is strict on purpose:
- 80% of the products must conform to ICADA requirements after a transition period.
- Only authentic natural cosmetics companies are authorized by ICADA. ICADA does not award personal care company status to generic competitors who cherry-pick raw materials from a positive list and mix "natural personal care" formulations on that basis.
- ICADA's affinity is with specialist suppliers, whose expertise and awareness of nature provide an excellent basis for consultation with respect to organic and natural personal care products. Sellers have the opportunity to position themselves and stand out with authentic organic and natural personal care products.
