At L’Oréal Paris, we are committed to both transforming our value chain and mobilizing our whole ecosystem to reduce the impact of our products.

We focus on continuously improving the impact of our packaging and formulas to offer more sustainable products to our consumers.

Improving our formulas

    • By 2030
      of our ingredients will be of biobased
      origin, derived from abundant minerals or circular
    • By 2030, we aim to reach
      of biodegradability (1) in our formulas.
(1) The biodegradability of a formula is calculated from the ingredients that constitute it. We are therefore talking about % biodegradability of a formula, which corresponds to the % of biodegradable ingredients (by weight) compared to all the organic ingredients (i.e. containing carbon from living organisms) of the formula.

Optimizing our packaging

L’Oréal Paris is accelerating its transition to the circular economy by optimizing its packaging. The priority is to reduce the overall amount of packaging and then replace any materials used with better alternatives. Examples include introducing innovative new formats to cut back on plastic and replacing virgin plastic with recycled or biobased materials.

Our Eco-packaging strategy 

    • REDUCE

       We reduce the weight and size of packaging, or remove it. L’Oréal Paris is seeking alternatives to single-use packaging and proposing not only rechargeable or refillable systems but also reusable packaging. We also promote multi-doses to replace single-doses

       We replace some materials with less impactful alternatives by:

      promoting a circular economy, 
      • using post-consumption recycled (PCR) materials,

      • using renewable materials such as bio-sourced plastics
      We act to improve the recyclability of our packaging, to reduce the raw materials required to make it, and prevent it from becoming wasteWe are also innovating to ensure every aspect of our packaging can be recycled at waste sorting facilities and we encourage consumers to recycle

By 2025, 100% of our plastic packaging will be refillable, recyclable, reusable or compostable.

By 2030, we will reduce by 20% in intensity the quantity of packaging used for our products, compared to 2019.
