For Sustainable Land Use

For Sustainable Land Use

Natural resources are an important basis for the development of our product formulas. Neither through the procurement nor through the use of these raw materials do we want to burden or damage the environment. Sustainable land use and thus also the preservation of biodiversity in regions from which we source our raw materials is therefore a central concern for us.

Our goal is to source our main renewable raw and packaging materials (palm (kernel) oil derivatives, soybean oil, coconut oil and paper) from sustainable and deforestation-free sources by 2025.

We have had robust sustainability programs in place for palm-based raw materials and paper-based packaging for many years. Similar programs for other raw materials are currently under development.

Paper-based materials

Since we use paper and cardboard for many of our product packagings, it is important to us to also source this natural resource sustainably.

  • Today, 100% of our folding boxes, blister cards and leaflets, which we use to pack our face creams, for example, are made of FSC-certified material (“Forest Stewardship Council”). For other paper packaging such as shipping boxes and other sales materials, we are working intensively to increase our transparency and also convert these to FSC-certified or recycled paper.
