Our aim: to reach carbon neutrality (zero emissions) by 2030

In December 2019, during the UN Climate Change Conference, together with 500 other B Corp certified companies, we committed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 – twenty years ahead of the 2050 date set by the Paris Agreement. 

This means that we will transform our sourcing and manufacturing processes to be even closer to our customers and will function with a circular approach to the life of our products and their packaging.

Sourcing

Responsible sourcing

Responsable Sourcing

By sourcing from responsible plant sectors which are placed under the control of UEBT, our objective is to better control the traceability of our plant-based active ingredients: from farming or picking to processing and integration into our products.
To do so, we work in partnership with all the sector’s players: farmers, local authorities, agronomists, etc.

Natural and organic ingredients

Natural and organic ingredients

Since our creation, we always choose the best ingredients from the plant world, preferably organic, while also ensuring our products’ safety with a stringent formulation charter.

The fight against waste

The fight against waste

We process avocados that should normally go to waste to create cosmetic active ingredients for our products. The entire avocado (including the pit) is transformed into oil and powder from which we obtain our avocado Perseose® that can be found in our products. 

Composition and production

Green extraction processes

Green extraction processes

We use specific technologies that respect people and our planet: molecular distillation (a green process used to separate and concentrate premium oil ingredients) and biotechnologies such as enzymatic engineering, a substitute to chemical substances.

Downsizing water and energy consumption

Downsizing water and energy consumption

Since 2018, for 100 units produced, we have reduced our consumption of electricity by 17.1%, gas by 23.1% and water by 20.8%.

Green energy

Green energy

Since 2018, we purchase 100% green electricity from renewable energy sources (wind, hydro, etc.) for our production site located in France.
For 100% of the amount of electricity used by our Expanscience production site, 100% of French renewable electricity is introduced into the network.

Emballage et distribution

Eco-designed products

Eco-designed products

Our products are eco-designed throughout their lifecycle. Our bottles and cardboard cases are recyclable, the weight of our packaging has been reduced to a maximum and the instructions have been removed. Whenever we do use cardboard cases, these are made from sustainably managed forest cardboard and printed with vegetable oil-based inks.

Experimenting bulk

Experimenting bulk

We are currently experimenting bulk sales: i.e. sales of non-prepackaged products. The idea behind this is to take our products’ eco-design a step further, especially our packaging which are reducing.
Bulk, a green distribution method, falls within a circular economy approach and offers an alternative to plastic bottles.
