Care About Earth Programme

Through our Care About Earth program, we are committed to developing our products in a way that reduces their impact on the environment and thus contributing to environmental sustainability for present and to come generations.

Several work leads have been simultaneously launched, ensuring that the quality of our products is always met, with extra care taken to comply with Good Manufacturing Practices and EU rules on cosmetics.

Responsible Wrapping

With every product we develop, we are mindful of our environmental and work to minimize our wrapping and maximize our use of recyclable and recycled materials.

Now we offer:

  • recycled paper and cardboard packaging,
  • recyclable paper, and stone-paper packaging.

Poly bags (PO) have been removed from our accessories’ packaging, in order to reduce as much as possible plastic use

Our cardboard boxes, brochures and leaflets are printed using water-based acrylic varnishes and vegetable-ink on responsible wrapping made from:

  • Stone paper,
  • FSC recycled paper and cardboard,
  • PEFC paper from sustainably managed forests.

Responsible Packaging

OUR BIO-SOURCED PACKAGING

In order to avoid the use of plastics made from limited resources, such as fossil fuels, we offer 100% plant-based tubes, bottles and Ecopump, mainly using sugar cane.

The sugar cane extraction process allows 5 successive cycles.

The first two produce high quality syrup designed for the sugar industry.

The three other cycles allow to produce bioethanol designed for biofuel (used as source of energy) and also to produce bio-ethylene. We manufacture our 100% bio-sourced packaging from this last component.

To sum up, our packaging are made from sugar cane’s residues, intended to sugar industry. That way, our production doesn’t harm the ecosystems of the producing areas.

We control the origin of our raw material: we only use sugar cane coming from sustainably managed fields and fair trade.

We reduce our carbon impact: one ton of planted sugar cane naturally captures around 2.5 tons of Co2 from the atmosphere, thereby contributing to air purification.

Our bio-resin pumps are made from natural raw material such as corn, sugar cane and potato.

OUR RECYCLED PACKAGING

We manufacture packaging that favors the use of recycled material:

  • In PCR (post-consumer recycled) material coming from consumer waste sources that have been already used and discarded.

The bottles, caps and labels of our amenity line Scandinavian White are made from recycled materials:

  • our bottles are in recycled PET and our caps are in recycled PP,
  • the soap box is made from 90% recycled cardboard and the label is in 100% recycled paper.
  • In PIR (post-industry recycled) plastic coming from the recovery of industrial garbage (manufacturing waste) or recalled products never used by consumers.

We are increasingly using this manufacturing process for the production of our caps, with the objective of achieving a 90% conversion rate from traditional plastic to recycled plastic by 2020.
