Gattefossé: three products labelled ERI 360°


Part of a permanent movement of progress and an ambitious CSR approach, Gattefossé obtains the ERI 360° label for three of its major cosmetic ingredients.

This label, co-created in 2018 by players in the cosmetics industry including Gattefossé, and developed by Innov'Alliance, makes it possible to evaluate the entire life cycle of the product, from its origin to its placing on the market.

ERI 360°: assess the level of eco-responsibility of an ingredient

The ERI 360° label brings together a set of tools and benchmarks to measure the sustainability and degree of ecodesign of an ingredient. The repository analyzes the entire value chain, from the cultivation and harvesting of the plant, to the exit of the plant.

Through this label, Gattefossé acquires skills and tools to carry out a self-diagnosis of its ingredients, also aiming to improve the design of new products. There are 3 levels of labeling: bronze for a score between 75 and 85/100, silver for a score between 85 and 95/100 and gold for a score greater than 95/100. Since its creation, 30 ingredients have been labeled ERI 360 °, and only 2 have obtained the gold label, proof of the requirement of it.

At Gattefossé, the sustainability of raw materials is a significant issue. Gattefossé strives to ensure that its raw materials come from reliable, identifiable and renewable sources, through rigorous tracing of their origins.

As soon as the product is developed, the company identifies the extraction or production method that will be the most environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, and that will achieve the activity or functionality sought for the ingredient.

We intend to continue the ERI 360° label for other products in the coming months",explains Paula Lennon, Group Director cosmetics.
