Our mission as a brand
OUR AROMACHOLOGIE RANGE: 100% recycled packaging for the past 10 years!
Do you know why the bottles in the Aromachologie range have a green colour? It's because they're designed to be green! In the world of cosmetics, clear plastics are usually preferred, but we chose to use coloured bottles for this range, so we could make them from 100% recycled PET.
By 2025, we want to be using rPET in all our bottles, and we're working with Loop Industries to make this happen!
ECO-REFILLS: AN ECO-EASY WAY TO CUT DOWN ON PLASTIC!
Many of our products are available in eco-refills, which use 65 to 90% less plastic than a regular bottle. In 2017, our overall use of plastic was reduced by 7% thanks to customers opting for these eco-friendly solutions. So, when there's a choice, go for this eco-option! And you'll be glad to know that we plan to sell even more eco-refills in the future!
LOOP: TRULY TRANSFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGY!
L'OCCITANE recently signed a multi-year contract with Loop Industries, which uses a revolutionary process to transform waste plastic into high-purity, food-grade PET plastic. Thanks to this groundbreaking technology, we should be able to achieve our goal of using 100% recycled plastic in our bottles by 2025!
ECO-DESIGN: RETHINKING OUR PACKAGING
We like to keep our packaging simple: no frills or excess! By reducing packaging thickness, we've already saved 28 tons of plastic. And we're currently planning to replace our cellophane protective seals with a new, eco-friendly, compostable solution made from FSC-certified wood fibre. Watch this space!
