Sustainability in Cosmetics & Personal Care

When discussing sustainability in cosmetics and personal care sectors, there are multiple drivers to consider from environmental, social and economic perspectives.

In addition, the definition of cosmetics covers a very broad range of products, with a great variety in formulations, shapes and packaging. All this calls for resilient and systematic, yet flexible approaches to sustainability.

To enable cosmetic companies and providers of cosmetic ingredients to incorporate this sustainability knowledge into product design, decision making and communication, thinkstep developed dedicated innovation tools, including software solutions, industry-specific datasets and focused consulting services.
