5 Garnier Products Receive Cradle to Cradle Certification
Another brand under the L'Oréal USA portfolio has earned Cradle to Cradle certification for a selection of its products, and that brand is none other than Garnier. The drugstore-favorite was named the first mass market skin care brand to gain Cradle to Cradle certification for five products in its SkinActive line. As the third L'Oréal USA brand to receive this certification—Kiehl’s and Biolage are the others—the prestigious honor further supports L'Oréal’s commitment to sustainability.
"We know our consumers value sustainability and to us that means demonstrating sustainability leadership across the value chain, from formulation to manufacturing to renewable resources to social fairness," says Danielle Azoulay, Head of CSR & Sustainability for L'Oréal USA—Skincare.com’s parent company.
So, what exactly is this certification based on? The brand’s products were evaluated on material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship and social fairness practices. The products are awarded at five levels (BASIC, BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, AND PLATINUM). All five products achieved Cradle to Cradle Certified SILVER recognition, with four products achieving PLATINUM for the Material Health attribute and all products achieving GOLD for Material Reutilization.
Garnier’s Cradle to Cradle-Certified Products
The five Garnier products receiving this honor were all produced in L'Oréal USA's facility in New Jersey which is powered with 100 percent renewable electricity, and many of the products boast sustainable packaging made from post-consumer recycled plastic.
