Preserving biodiversity and lessening our impact on the Earth’s climate are essential goals for Garnier. We are making ever-increasing efforts to implement ingredients, products and packaging that respect our environment.

  • Preserving Biodiversity

    We are expanding our use of plant-based raw materials like nature-sourced glycerin, coming from sustainable sources.

    All of our cardboard and paper-based packaging is FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council), ensuring materials come from responsibly managed forests.

    We also believe that producers play an important role in protecting biodiversity, which is why sustainable and responsible sourcing are key to our efforts: for example, the Shea butter we use is ecologically grown in Burkina Faso.

  • Additionally, green chemistry is playing a larger role in our formulation processes and we continuously strive to improve our formulas in order to reduce the consumption of sensitive ingredients and increase the biodegradability of our products, in an aim to minimize the impact on fragile habitats.

    We are also committed to use Perlite, a natural alternative, in place of microbeads of polyethylene in all our scrubs (the phasing out will be achieved by end of 2016).

  • REDUCING Our Effect on the Earth’s Climate

    As packaging represents one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, Garnier is committed to reducing its impact on climate by reducing packaging and increasing the use of recycled materials such as R-PET.

    Among our initiatives, we are proud to have introduced among the lightest jars on the market.

    We also significantly reduce energy consumption and emissions through manufacturing sites committed to sustainability.
