Supplier to focus on biodiversity and supply chain sustainability
Laboratoires Expanscience has joined the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT), following the development of a five year work plan which will see the company focus on its supply chain and biodiversity principles. The supplier has committed to tracing its ingredients as far down the supply chain as possible, looking in particular at the rights of producers and growers.
“Laboratoires Expanscience has specialised in natural extracts for more than 40 years, and plants are our most important raw material when developing active ingredients for the cosmetics industry,” commented Alex Saunois, lipochemistry and plant extract research & development manager, Laboratoires Expanscience. “Joining UEBT is both a way to recognise the work we have already done as part of our sustainable development strategy as well as a commitment to the future.”
