our commitments

philosophy's purpose has always been to help women live better lives by taking small steps, every day , to be better for themselves. in this spirit we believe personal care should have a positive impact on the skin, the mind and the planet and are reinventing our portfolio to offer more eco-responsible, clean products that are multitasking yet gentle and offer a moment of wellbeing through scent and texture.

clean formulas
We created our clean program in response to consumer and retailer desire for ingredient transparency and to choose products based on the absence of certain ingredients, while maintaining safety and performance. Our clean list goes beyond authorities' requirements and some of our main competitors. It is dynamic and updated on a regular basis as consumer expectations evolve. we exclude parabens, phenoxyethanol, BHT, phthalates among others* in all our product launches starting in 2022 and are working on reformulating our existing products to be in line with our clean standards

eco-responsible formulas
We favor green chemistry, relying as much as possible on biotechnology,** high-quality synthetics and responsibly sourced natural ingredients to minimize our impact on nature.

responsibly sourced ingredients
We are actively sourcing products and services in an ethical, sustainable and socially conscious way. We require our supply chain partners to demonstrate their responsible practices through expert third-party assessments and audits. For ingredients that face greater sustainability risks, we go further by working with certifiers, sector-wide collaborations and pursuing traceability. Business partners must also comply with our code of conduct—which communicates Coty's minimum standards including human and labor rights, environmental protection, and anti-corruption.

eco-responsible packaging
We are transitioning to FSC certified, responsibly sourced, recycled paperboard for our folding cartons*** and to minimum 30% PCR plastic and 20% PCR glass in the majority of our packaging**** saving up to 45 of virgin paper and 80 ton of virgin plastic each year*****

responsible manufacturing
Our manufacturing site in Sanford uses 100% renewable electricity and we are aiming to offset 100% of its carbon emissions by the end of 2023.
