IS YOUR PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?
L'Oréal Paris tries to simplify the packaging of our cosmetics and toiletry products, whilst placing the safety of our consumers above all other concerns. Product packaging has an important function in protecting the product. Our products are destined to come into contact with the outer parts of the body, their packaging must give them protection and innocuousness on a micro-biological and allergic level. Because eliminating PVC was problematic, in recent years we have taken initiatives such as replacing it with other materials that conserve our formulas in satisfactory conditions. Collectively, initiatives such as these reduce our products' impact on the environment. It is important to remember our concern for customers' safety. Our products are ultimately used in bathrooms and sometimes on children. If a glass product were to fall or break, it could cause injury; plastic packaging does not present this type of risk. Additionally, plastic packaging can be incinerated. With filters in place to treat emissions, the incineration of plastic packaging does not pose an atmospheric problem. It is also worth noting that transporting plastic packaging is both more economically and environmentally efficient than transporting glass; there is less impact on the environment due to a lighter transport requirement, resulting in lower energy use.
