Our commitments

THE FUTURE - A SUSTAINABLE COMPANY EACH STEP OF THE WAY


We make thoughtful choices at each step of our product design process for greater sustainability.

We believe that these actions must constantly evolve and that we must be creative to invent and reinvent our formulas, our production modes and packaging.

We are committed to bettering our practices over time and over the course of technological progress.

A HIGHLY NATURAL AND MORE SUSTAINABLE FORMULAS


At the heart of all our formulas is our 100% natural-based isododecane made from renewable resources.

Beyond our key ingredient, each formula was developed according to clear specifications to optimize its natural-based percentage to more than 90% of natural ingredients without compromising on performance or color intensity.

MORE RECYCLABLE PACKAGING


We have selected our packaging based on low carbon footprint materials.

We always opt for recycled and recyclable plastic whenever possible. When it is not the case, we commit to finding more sustainable materials. When virgin plastic is used, it means that the alternative is not satisfactory.

Our cardboard packaging is also part of a sustainable approach to forest management.
