Green chemistry

Green chemistry is a real lever for innovation and provides solutions to the challenges of the socio-ecological transition

HOW WE SEE IT

Ecodesign


In order to design high-performance hygiene solutions with the least environmental impact, we formulate by re-analysing all the parameters of the chemical reactions that take place around our products. We review and scrutinise every step of the process of extracting and transforming raw materials into formulated products, not forgetting how they are used.

ecoconception

Our products are the result of a holistic approach that takes four parameters into account. (hover to find out more)

Energy

GIVING PRIORITY TO THE USE OF

Renewable raw materials

In order to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and our carbon footprint, we prefer to use plant-based resources for formulation. This avoids the depletion of fossil carbon and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

REDUCE OUR

Energy requirements

Chemical processes

Selecting components that can be extracted, synthesised and formulated at low temperatures and under low pressure conditions.

Cleaning 

Optimise our formulae for equal or greater efficiency at low temperatures, with less water consumption.

REDUCE WASTE

Integrating circularity

Through the rigorous selection of product components, we gradually incorporate circularity into our formulae.

Optimising the nature and quantity of raw materials

QUANTITY

Utilising the physical and chemical properties of biobased products


Thanks to the enzyme, we are reducing the quantity of active agents in our solutions while maintaining superior cleaning performance.

QUALITY

Sustainable sourcing


All plant-based ingredients in our ECOCERT-certified products are sustainably produced and extracted. For example, the coconut used in the manufacture of our surfactants comes from RSPO suppliers.
