Sustainable Products

At Beiersdorf, we have over 130 years’ experience creating safe, reliable and environmentally friendly products that delight our customers all over the world.

As part of our sustainability strategy 'We Care' we work closely with our suppliers to tackle ethical, social and environmental issues right along our supply chain. We select raw materials of the highest standard and continue to invest in innovation to ensure we no longer rely on scarce resources. To achieve our goals, we’ve also embedded a sustainability criterion into our research, procurement process, and packaging processes: helping our company to ‘avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle’ wherever possible.

In 2006, we developed a Raw Materials Policy that internationally standardised our raw materials criteria. By making sure we know where our materials originate from and consistently researching new ways to design more eco-friendly production processes, we’re working hard to reduce our environmental footprint.  

Alongside our suppliers we’re changing how we work with our raw materials. By switching to sustainable palm oil, eliminating water-insoluble and non-biodegradable microplastics or microbeads from our skin care products, using organically produced argan oil that supports the Fair Trade System, and eliminating all types of animal testing, we develop great products that do good for our planet.

As part of our worldwide Sustainability Initiative, we use low-energy production technologies, reduced transportation, and waste minimisation to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging. In fact, approximately 90% of our packaging material is recyclable. By reducing the amount of material we use but maintaining the stability and quality of our packaging, we’ve reimagined our packaging process to protect our environment and pass on cost savings to our customers.
