Aligning Our Capabilities to Our Customers Sustainability Needs
We know many of today’s consumers desire beauty and personal care products that align with their values and minimize negative impacts on the planet.
Our customers look to Voyant Beauty to understand these changes in consumer trends, as well as be a true partner in creating more sustainable products, which is why we are building our capabilities to offer ingredients with a lower environmental or social impact without compromising efficacy and consider the sustainability of an ingredient in products we custom design.
Sustainability Doesn’t Stop With Formulation
When it comes to sustainable packaging, we know many of our customers have set goals to reduce the use of virgin plastic in favor of more sustainable alternatives. Leveraging new technologies and our technical know-how, we can offer packaging to customers that is 100 percent sustainable and reusable.
In 2021, Voyant was proud to partner with Aptar Beauty + Home to supply our new 5-in-1 Upcycled Cranberry Resurfacing Mask proactive innovation formulation packaged in the preview launch of FUTURE – Aptar’s new fully recyclable mono-material and e-commerce capable pump.
Sourcing with a Stewardship Mindset
Providing sustainable alternatives where and when we can is a hallmark of a true sustainable stewardship mindset.
We are proud that currently 100% of the Voyant Beauty sourced corrugate boxes come from sources who are required and actively maintain Forest Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry certifications. By requiring Suppliers to maintain active FSC and SFI certifications on all Voyant sourced corrugate, we are ensuring the paper used to make the boxes originate from accredited sustainable sources.
As well, currently 100% of the Voyant sourced aluminum aerosol cans are required to contain between 5-25% Post Industrial Scrap (PIS) aluminum. Aluminum is considered one of the most sustainable metals available with an endless repurposing life cycle and requiring use of PIS and/or post consumer scrap materials ensures alignment to our Sustainable Stewardship promise.
