Our B Corp certification

With B Corp certification, we have chosen to place the general interest at the core of our business model.

In 2018, we were the world’s first dermo-cosmetics and pharmaceutical laboratory to be certified B Corp. And this didn’t happen by chance!

Every day, our teams work toward developing our company in a virtuous way, by combining economic performance with social, societal and environmental requirements.
We have followed this voluntary pathway since 2004! That was the year we adhered to the United Nations Global Compact.

“B Corp is a very meaningful label for our brands. It enables us to meet the expectations of consumers who are conscientious players looking for meaning and trust when they purchase”.

B Corp certification evaluates and highlights our real impact and the positive contributions of our activities to society and the environment. This stringent certification underlines our desire to participate in long-term economic development that respects both humans and the planet.

It also attests to our commitment to being transparent with our stakeholders, making our ecosystem move forward toward greater responsibility and encouraging our companies toward greater sharing, equity and respect. In sum, it’s our commitment to being a better company FOR the world and not the best company IN the world!
