When formulating our products we strive to use natural ingredients that are in line with our strong environmental policies and are not harmful to the environment.
For example, the main cleansing agents used in our shampoos and shower gels are biodegradable, approved by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and are in line with Good Environmental Choice (Bra Miljöval) standards.
We are one of the first companies to utilise plant extracts in skin care products and we have always tried to optimise the use of ingredients from renewable plant sources.
Scientific reports on safety and environmental issues are continuously monitored to ensure that action can be taken to replace any ingredients that may have a negative impact on consumer health and the environment.
In addition, Oriflame’s product packaging is recyclable and minimised to reduce waste.
Oriflame has a strong ethical ethos which is evident through all facets of its operations. Oriflame products are formulated and manufactured in line with high industry standards and ethical guidelines.
We currently operate five cosmetic manufacturing plants - in Poland, Sweden, India, China and Russia. All Oriflame manufacturing facilities and sub-contractors comply with the relevant local and national laws and regulations. Such laws include those relating to labour standards, environmental manufacturing and health and safety practices.
Water conservation is a key priority in Oriflame’s environmental management plan. In line with our proactive approach towards responsible environmental management we apply design techniques at all of our manufacturing facilities, aimed at reducing water consumption and minimising pollution.
Oriflame takes a strong stance on important social and ethical issues such as child labour, ethnic beliefs and culture. We are also committed to helping children at risk and to providing education for young women through our Social Cause Programs.
