FlorIndex, from TechnicoFlor, continues its revolution

In this context of ecological urgency known to all, TechnicoFlor has developed FlorIndex, a tool to assess the impact of perfume formulas on the environment. This approach towards a more responsible perfumery is now validated by Afnor Certification: a first.

Consumption habits have evolved today: we tend more and more towards a more responsible and natural consumption. Indeed, consumers are asking for more transparency on the composition of the products they use. In response to this demand, TechnicoFlor, a French, family-owned and independent perfume composition company specialized in the creation of perfumes for the biggest names in Perfumery, Cosmetics and Hygiene, launched FlorIndex in 2022, a unique tool
ecodesign of perfume formulas.

A real innovation created by TechnicoFlor's teams, accompanied by ecodesign experts, FlorIndex is the only tool to date that is able to measure the environmental impact of perfumes at almost every stage of their development cycle. From the sourcing of raw materials to the end of the perfume's life, including production and transport, it scrutinizes 38 indicators in order to evaluate 8 criteria: the weight of responsible raw materials, the weight of the solvent, the energy necessary for production,
the impact of transport, but also the biodegradability of a formula or the measurement of its toxicity on the environment and health. In the form of an eco-score, it assigns a grade from A to E to the perfume, which provides all the data necessary for its understanding.

FlorIndex is a unique tool, the most complete existing on the market, and has just been validated by Afnor Certification: the organization has validated the relevance, transparency and robustness of FlorIndex. " We have taken another step forward in our desire to control the environmental and societal impacts of our formulas. By providing our clients with a tool that allows them to communicate the use of an eco-designed fragrance to their distributors and consumers, we are offering them a totally new advantage. FlorIndex will bring our entire industry into the era of transparency and eco-creation! "Maxime Gransart, Technicoflor's deputy general manager, points out.
