Because taking care of infants also means protecting their living environment, Mustela® makes every effort to minimise the impact of its products on Humans and their Environment
Our responsible supply chains(1) aim to control the traceability of our plant-based active ingredients as efficiently as possible, in partnership with all the key players in the sector (farmers, local authorities, agronomists, etc.), from cultivation or picking to their processing and incorporation into our products.
Our approach is under the control of UEBT (2) (Union for Ethical Bio-commerce), which evaluates the ethical practices of sourcing our plant-based ingredients.
