Clarins, as well as L'Occitane, Shiseido, L'Oréal and Estée Lauder, also helped to create the new traceability-focused initiative

A collection of the beauty industry’s largest brands have collaborated to create the new Traceability Alliance for Sustainable Cosmetics (TRASCE) consortium.

The initiative, which was led by beauty and fragrance house Chanel, aims to improve the cosmetics sector’s traceability.

L'Occitane en Provence, Shiseido, L'Oréal and Estée Lauder Companies are among the businesses which help to create TRASCE.

Clarins, Merck, Neyret, Nuxe, Sensient, Groupe Clarins, Groupe Pochet and Sisley are also included in the list.

“The Clarins Group has been working for many years to improve its knowledge of its partners and control of its ecosystem,” said Guillaume Lascourrèges, Director of Responsible Development for the Clarins Group.

“Our commitment to the TRASCE project, alongside other players in the cosmetics industry, is to pool our demands in order to strengthen the duty of vigilance throughout the value chain.

The Fédération des Entreprises de la Beauté, a professional union of cosmetic product manufacturers, is also said to be an official sponsor of the consortium.

“In the long term, the consortium aims to develop a collective approach to the risk analysis of social and environmental risks in supply chains, to interpret the data collected and define common progress plans,” TRASCE added.
