Goals & Commitments

Goal 12. Reduce Emissions to Water


Commitment: Use only biodegradable cleansing ingredients in 100% of our Personal Care products.

Completed. Only biodegradable cleansing ingredients were used in our Personal Care developments during 2015. We are investigating how to broaden our focus on biodegradability going forward.

Commitment: Start to phase out plastic micro beads in all new products from 2014.

Completed. In 2015 all of our new scrub products launched with natural origin beads – e.g. poppy seed, almond shell, silica and sugar. We are continuing to add to the portfolio of natural origin scrubs with olive stone in some future launches. There will be no manufacture of products containing plastic microbeads after end 2016.
