Sustainable Packaging

AROMATICA strives to practice sustainable containers and packaging, reducing the use of materials and committing to single packaging. To protect our forest, AROMATICA uses paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council ™ (FSC ™) and prints boxes and print with soy ink that are highly biodegradable and easily recyclable. AROMATICA replaces plastic with recyclable paper. If inevitable, biodegradable and recycled plastic is used. In addition, AROMATICA strives to facilitate the use of glass containers, which are recyclable and free from hormone disrupting chemicals.

Eco-friendly Smart Factory

AROMATICA takes pride in an energy-saving smart factory that reduces power consumption and increases energy recycling. Aims to reduce energy consumption by more than 90% by recollecting heat emitted from manufacturing process, leveraging on the difference in the temperature within the manufacturing plant to generate cooling water, and utilizing small format machineries for small batch productions.

Save Planet Campaign

To improve the marine ecosystem, AROMATICA strictly excludes oxybenzone, octinoxate, and silicone in sunscreens. We promote eco-friendly sunscreens to save the planet.

Sustainable Products

AROMATICA simply doesn’t make disposal products for convenience. To reduce the use of plastics, AROMATICA extracted polylactic acid (PLA) from corn starch to make a toothbrush as durable as plastic. Instead, it is composable and contributes to environmental conservation. AROMATICA is furthermore launching refillable product containers to prevent daily disposals.

AROMATICA takes social and environmental impact into account when selecting distributors. AROMATICA’s essential oil supplier practice our mission to protect the environment.

Eco-friendly

Our partners recover 99.9% of their wastes and recycle more than 50% of the them. To conserve our resources, we devote on recycled paper or FSC certified paper. We invest more than 160,000 euros in France’s water quality management. It saves over 8% of energy per year. We try to minimize our adverse environmental impact even when selecting our supplies.

Responsibility

In order to develop a sustainable operation, we take responsibility to purchase ingredients from partners organically certified from thirty-six countries. AROMATICA offers technological support and training to producers and employees in our local farms and factories. We strive in every step of business operation to reduce environmental pollution.
