Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals, our view on sustainability closely informed every product of our menopausal care line. In this case we’d like to mention particularly SDG 3, Good Health and Wellbeing, and SDG 5, Gender Equality. We care about the social and psychological impact of the health of women in general, and -with this product line- specifically about their skin and hair during menopause. Sustainability considerations inform additionally every step in the product life cycle – sourcing ingredients, labor, transportation, implementation in formulations, and how these are broken down. That is a lot of due diligence we do when creating a product that is kind to Earth.
ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB, for example, is a flower extract cultivated between 1000m and 1500m altitude in the Swiss Alps as a result of our Farming for Beauty™ program. Edelweiss is a crop that enhances the area's biodiversity and harvesting the flowers offers jobs to the local community of farmers.
By choosing TILAMAR® PDO with NØØVISTA™ instead of European-produced synthetic propylene glycol, we help personal care brands efficiently reduce their Scope 3 emissions because it has an almost 30% lower carbon footprint.
Niacinamide PC and BeauPlex® VH now come with the Quality for Life™ seal that guarantees the highest Quality, Reliability, Traceability, and Sustainability standards. Our 2 biggest Vitamin production sites are RSPO-certified, Mass-Balance & Segregated, and the Life Cycle Assessment of our Vitamin E has confirmed that our manufacturing process generates up to 89% less GHG emissions from raw materials compared to conventional building blocks.
Moreover, PEPHA®-TIGHT CB is our Blue Technology hero that harnesses the many benefits of lab-grown algae for flawless skin. Its production not only ensures that the ingredient is high purity, but it does not disturb the algae’s natural environment.
