In 2020, La Roche-Posay was the first dermocosmetics brand to launch a tube integrating cardboard, with -45% plastic vs. an average plastic tube. Since then, the brand rolled out the technology worldwide, extended it to another key franchise and keeps on working relentlessly with its partners to improve its impact and invent new solutions. Besides, the brand also lightened by 10% all its biggest bottles and launched the Lipikar 400ml eco refills with -77% plastic compared with an average bottle.

OUR ROADMAP
TOWARDS 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC

Besides striving for more eco-concious packaging innovations, we aim to replace virgin plastic by recycled plastic wherever we still use plastic. Our goal is to reach 100% recycled plastic by 2030. 

In 2020, 25% of our packaging was made of recycled plastic.
While our end-goal is to reach 100% recycled plastic by 2030, we are committed to achieving -70% by 2025.

This will already allow us to save 10.000 tons of virgin plastic.
 
 

 

From hand-picked Centella Asiatica from Madagascar, to Hyaluronic Acid and Aqua Posae stemming from a biofermentation process, our ambition is to combine highest product efficiency with sustainable technologies. By 2030, La Roche-Posay will use green science technologies in all its life-changing pillar products.

 

La Roche-Posay is committed to developing formulas that are respectful of marine life. We test each and every formula, going much further than the mandatory tests for suncare products. La Roche-Posay has also collaborated with experts to create new standards of testing, particularly on corals with the Scientific Center of Monaco.

 

Two of our key ingredients, Shea Butter and Madecassoside, are carefully collected by women supported by our Solidarity Sourcing program to guarantee their quality and to protect biodiversity. Our program for shea butter is FAIR FOR LIFE™ accredited and one of the biggest of the industry. Discover our products formulated with solidarity sourced ingredients.

FROM FACTORIES TO FIELDS,
WE SUPPORT THE PEOPLE IN OUR SUPPLY CHAIN

As part of our Solidarity Sourcing program, we support 26.000 women in vulnerable communities with an equitable income. For example, 100% of the shea butter in our Lipikar Baume AP+M is sustainably sourced in Burkina Faso. Our program is FAIR FOR LIFE™ certified.
