What’s Garnier’s sustainable sourcing strategy?
Today, we are proud that more than half of Garnier’s ingredients come from renewable sources, but we know there is more to do. We are striving for 100% of our renewable ingredients to be sourced sustainably by 2022. We are fully committed to protecting biodiversity and the planet by leveraging green sciences to offer our consumers the same high performance while ensuring that every Garnier product is more sustainable.
Sustainable sourcing is also our priority for our packaging. In 2019, 100% of our cardboard boxes and paper instruction manuals have a sustainably managed forest certification (FSC).
How is Garnier going greener?
We have developed new 98% natural origin formulas and Ecocert-certified organic skincare and continuously reduced the environmental footprint of our products. At our industrial sites, we have significantly lowered our CO2 emissions and water consumption too.
We are sourcing more and more of our natural ingredients sustainably every day, launching natural origin formulas within all our product categories. In 2019 we introduced a new organic skincare range, certified organic by the Soil Association. We have improved the sustainability performance of our factories and reduced our use of virgin plastic in packaging, while also increasing the recyclable content.

How is Garnier being a responsible beauty brand?
Garnier has been committed to transparency for many years. We started disclosing the origin of our ingredients back in 2017 and since 2020, consumers can now see fully the environmental and social impact of our products through a transparent new environmental labelling system on our website. Every day, we are looking to source more of our natural ingredients more sustainably. Our key targets are producing more natural origin formulas in all our product categories, including our new organic range, improving the sustainability performance of our factories and reducing our use of virgin plastic in packaging while increasing recycled content.
Our Green Beauty strategy will enable us to make further progress by taking an end-to-end approach to sustainability. This involves commitments to improve the impact of our products throughout their lifecycle, helping to preserve natural resources, harness clean energy and prevent waste.
