Goal 9: Market Products That Meet High Social and Ethical Standards


 

Respect animal welfare by never using cosmetic ingredients derived from dead animals or which cause harm or suffering to animals.

As with previous years, no products were launched during 2017 breaching this commitment.

Ensure an ethical approach is taken when sourcing our raw materials.

Responsible sourcing of our raw materials is an important part of managing our raw material portfolio. Mica is an important ingredient in many industries, including cosmetic where it is used to add a specific visual and textural aspect. This year Oriflame became a member of the Responsible Mica Initiative, a “Do-Tank” which aims to eradicate child labour and unacceptable working conditions in the Indian mica supply chain by joining forces across industries and civil society organisations (or NGOs). In addition, at the end of the year, we also carried out physical partial audits of the mica mines and processing units of one of our key suppliers.
