OUR BRAND IS COMMITTED TO ETHICAL SUPPLIERS

Our commitment to Nature and Mankind has, naturally, led us to set up long-term partnerships with our plant resource suppliers. They are based on fair trade principles to develop ethical cosmetics. Our supply chains reflect our commitment on a daily basis, as well as the care put into designing environmentally-responsible cosmetics that are meaningful both for those use them and for those involved in the manufacturing process.

These fair partnerships are unions with men and women who have a passion for their land and the development of their communities. Beginning with shea butter in Burkina Faso over 15 years ago, our commitment grows each year with new ethical suppliers. As a maker of cosmetics that are sustainable and beneficial for everyone, we build customized partnerships with the aim of respecting the environment, preserving biodiversity and the welfare of those who take care of it. 

Thanks to these sustainable and supportive relationships, we are able to guarantee the implementation of local development projects and the selection of exceptional raw materials for ethical cosmetics. All this while still ensuring the preservation of traditional know-how and its transmission.

Protecting and saving species by supporting their cultivation and harvest

The plant is the root of everything. It’s been our inspiration since the very beginning of our brand. Our approach, as a committed and environmentally-responsible brand, is based on respect and the sustainability of resources. The plants at the heart of our ethical suppliers are a valuable resource that enable local communities to live off of their harvest and transformation. Whole villages are rely on these resources and we are committed to contributing to their prosperity and development.

Restraint and responsibility are key: we harvest plants in their natural habitat and only harvest what we need to ensure the long-term survival of the species. We work with those who have preserved and valued these precious natural resources for generations. It is thanks to them that we have access to these plants and we strive to honor this privilege by helping them to live better.

Preserving and developing local expertise

We are convinced that ancestral knowledge regarding harvesting methods and the production of raw materials is a true treasure to be preserved. This shared knowledge is unique and has guided the production of butters, oils and other plant extracts of unrivalled quality for centuries. As a brand committed to ethical cosmetics, we support production suppliers that value the talents of the men and women we work with.

For us, an environmentally-responsible cosmetics brand must support its partners in developing methods and techniques to help them improve their production tools and reduce their hard work. Respecting ancestral techniques, technical support and sharing skills are how we provide long-term support for their activities to grow. And we guide them on how to obtain the best certifications to value their work and the quality of the processes put in place.

Ensure quality and traceability through certified processes

All our suppliers are fair trade and organic farming-certified by ECOCERT. The Fair For Life label, issued by the body, is a rigorous certification appraising the initiatives taken by all actors, branded as a producer. This certification is the recognition of a fair long-term relationship, making it possible to secure supplies on one hand and maintain employment and working conditions on the other. 

As a brand committed long-term to its partners, we guarantee the conditions to help them grow confidently. The structure of these suppliers allows us to ensure ingredient traceability and to guarantee the quality of the active ingredients in our ethical cosmetics.

Our brand is committed to supporting long-term community development

Committing to ethical cosmetics also means investing in local communities. The companies we establish long-term partnerships with are cooperatives, families, villages, regions that our action supports.

Our suppliers provide strong support to local projects including fighting deforestation and malnutrition, preserving the land of small farmers, developing women's financial and social independence.

We are a brand committed to the long term sustainability: we work towards the well-being of men and women and to preserve our planet on a daily basis.
