Garnier commits to Green Beauty for all of usVisit garnier.com
Garnier is at the forefront of formulating natural & naturally inspired products, a legacy which began when Garnier patented the first ever plant-based hair lotion back in 1904.
More recently, Garnier has made major steps towards becoming a more natural and sustainable brand. Garnier has transformed many of its products, with formulas of more than 90% natural origin ingredients, certified organic product ranges, and vegan formulas. Garnier has also reduced the weight of some packaging, as well as ensuring it is made from recycled plastic and is more recyclable.
Garnier commits to Green Beauty, an end-to-end approach to sustainability. Green Beauty is set to transform Garnier, helping to reduce the brand’s environmental impact at every stage of its value chain.
All Garnier products, globally, are now officially approved Cruelty Free International under the Leaping Bunny programme.
“As a world leading mass-market natural beauty brand, we have the opportunity and responsibility to impact real change. Green Beauty will transform the way we do business. Developed with the help of our partners, researchers and customers, this initiative highlights a range of ambitious goals, underpinned by tangible targets. We pledge to lessen our impact on the planet and innovate for a sustainable future. It will take time, but Green Beauty will transform Garnier, and we hope the beauty industry as a whole.
To be officially approved by Cruelty Free International under the Leaping Bunny programme is a real milestone and was always an important part of our Green Beauty mission.”
