Unsere Mitarbeiter*innen nutzen den ÖPNV für die Anfahrt und für Dienstreisen, zusätzlich wurde ein firmeneigenes Programm zur Anschaffung von Fahrrädern aufgelegt, das sehr gut angenommen wird.


Sustainable products – sustainable processes – sustainable thinking

Our relocation in 2020 enabled us to further switch to resource-saving, process-optimized production

  • Determination of site- and process-related emissions with a specially created CO2 tool
  • Electricity for buildings and production from renewable sources
  • Wherever possible, we use raw materials from regional, sustainable and fair trade cultivation
  • Lip balm stick made from monomaterial Green PE
  • Use of recycled plastic
  • All packaging made of FSC-certified cardboard
  • Various “solid” care products that do not require primary packaging
  • CO2-neutral shipping of UPS shipments
  • Use of public transport for commuting and business trips
  • Vehicle fleet increasingly electrified
  • Company program for the purchase of employee bicycles
