Our purpose

At Expanscience, we help individuals shape their well-being.

We act to contribute to the well-being of babies and children and to parental peace of mind; we also aim to help individuals suffering from osteoarthritis to continue doing what they love, for as long as possible.

We believe that human well-being cannot be separated from the health of the planet. We want to have a positive impact on the world around us. Although each of us has a role to play, it’s by working together that we’ll meet our goals!

01

Cultivate our family-owned, independent, B corp company model

We cultivate our model of a family-owned, independent company that is anchored locally and proud of its “Made in France” heritage, while being open to the world.

95%

of our Mustela products are made in France, at our Epernon site in the Eure-et-Loir department

Our responsible supply chain in Peru with Deshidratados Tropicales Avocado, maracuja and maca are part of the composition of many Expanscience products and active ingredients. These raw materials come from sustainable, fair-trade crops, most notably in Peru. Sourcing and the transformation of these raw materials are ensured by Deshidratados Tropicales, our local implantation. In this way, we control the entire supply chain and reduce our environmental and social impact. #SustainableCrop Protection of local biodiversity Combat deforestation #Employment: 350 avocado producers supported by our activity in Peru #EconomicDevelopment Sustainable crops thanks to a long-term commitment Fair prices for producers To learn more about other actions, go to the “Our Mission” page !
