Improve personal, social and health outcomes across the value chain - from workers in the supply chain all the way to the end users of cosmetics products. Our aspiration is for Members to embed this principle right across the value chain, from producers to consumers.

This covers a range of topics:

  • contribution of the industry to societal and economic development;
  • fair and ethical principles for workers in the supply and wider value chains (from farmers to factory workers to salon employees), leading to their physical, emotional and financial wellbeing;
  • physical and emotional wellbeing of cosmetics industry consumers.
