Our mission: To make effective, responsible cosmetics available to as many people as possible

Our vision

“A major player in the development and manufacture of cosmetic, hygiene and sunscreen products in the south-east of France, since 2015 we have implemented a CSR approach with a view to perfecting our processes and building our future by integrating this approach at the heart of our management strategy.

Because we operate in a sector with public health issues and having an industrial activity, we consider it our responsibility to act in favor of Sustainable Development by better taking into account our impacts, both socially and environmentally. By reducing our negative impacts and doing our utmost to increase our positive impacts, we will transform constraints into opportunities, in particular by emphasizing training, the development of the skills of our employees and innovation for eco-designed products. “

Our CSR approach

Alexandre Dingas and the entire management team are committed to providing the necessary resources to implement and carry out the company's CSR policy. To this end, the CSR policy is carried out jointly by the Quality Department, internal ambassador, and the Sales Department, externally. The CSR team is thus responsible for relaying this policy to all of our stakeholders: Employees, Suppliers, Customers.

Domaines d’action prioritaires :

Eco conception

From the design stage, we take into account the environmental impact of our products and act on their entire life cycle with the following objectives:

  • Favouring short supply circuits, offering recycled materials whenever possible and using more and more recyclable materials.
  • Favouring short supply circuits, offering recycled materials whenever possible and using more and more recyclable materials.
  • Favour partnerships with FSC-certified printers and transporters committed to reducing their CO2 emissions.
  • Anticipate and integrate the priority needs of our stakeholders: employees, suppliers, customers
  • Optimizing our industrial processes to improve energy efficiency. Our production site and all our processes aim to reduce their ecological footprint, in particular through energy and water saving manufacturing protocols.

Our laboratories, administrative and commercial services as well as our production site are grouped together and located within the eco-valley, a vast development project dedicated to the economic and sustainable development of the Nice Cote d’Azur metropolis.


Cosmetics, although clean, remain associated with the chemical industry, whose image is often perceived as polluting and potentially having potential effects on health and safety. Reducing the environmental impact is at the heart of our commitment. We are therefore gradually implementing a policy that meets the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. Our priorities are:

  • Reducing our energy consumption.
  • The control of our water cycles (consumption and discharge)
  • Improving the management of our waste (recycling, new channels, etc.)
  • Improving the management of our waste (recycling, new channels, etc.)

Human Resources Policy

Staff safety occupies a central place in our HR policy. Safety that involves training, prevention, but also the safety of all of our equipment. Consideration of feedback from the field, consistency of actions, exemplary management, must be the keys to ensuring the company’s constant progress in terms of safety.

If protecting the physical health of employees is essential, it is necessary to integrate the protection of mental health. We want the work environment to be synonymous with caring, sharing and accomplishment. To achieve this, our levers of action are: support for our managers, training and skills development for our employees with a view to maintaining their employability, as well as the development of new ways of working. In our complex markets, with multiple tensions, committed employees who know how to cooperate, and who are listened to, are essential to the general performance of the company.

Ethics and transparency

We exclude from our formulas any ingredient that may present a risk to human health or the environment by excluding the use of endocrine disruptors, ecotoxic active ingredients and by conducting biodegradability tests.

Because knowledge in our field is improving, some ingredients may be questioned and debated. These controversial ingredients are often under review and regulations may change.

Because some of them have no equivalent in terms of efficacy and safety, we assist our clients in the choice of ingredients and call on independent toxicology experts.

We are committed to promoting, implementing and continuously improving our CSR policy. All of these objectives are managed by a dashboard of indicators, a management tool that will be used to assess our progress and develop our actions.
