TAKING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT INTO ACCOUNT
AT EVERY STAGE OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
But what about the environment? La Roche-Posay Laboratories take the possibility of any environmental impact into account at every stage of product development. As part of the Sharing Beauty with All program,
La Roche-Posay ensures that 100% of our final products are meticulously evaluated in terms of environmental and social performance at every step of their life cycle, in order to strongly progress on 4 major criteria:
- environmental footprint of our formula (biodegradability, impact on aquatic life, renewability, etc.)
- raw material sourcing
- product social benefits
