Acting responsibly: The future is now!
As an internationally operating family business in its 2nd generation, JANSSEN COSMETICS is aware of its responsibility towards the environment and future generations. We are committed to a climate-neutral value chain and the economical and responsible use of resources. As a family business, JANSSEN COSMETICS stands for tradition and long-term relationships.
Again and again, the question arises as to what contribution each individual can make to a sustainable future. In the current trend, transparency about sustainability and the respectful use of natural resources are particularly important.
As a cosmetics company operating in over 85 countries worldwide and producing high-quality system care in Aachen in the second generation, we take responsibility for our environment out of full conviction in order to enable more sustainable business and maintain a climate-neutral value chain. We are committed to the respectful use of natural resources and also sensitise our partners worldwide to MORE environmental awareness and sustainability. "The future is now!"
Above all, the areas of packaging and shipping enable resource-saving development. Almost 95% of the packaging for our high-quality products is sourced from Europe, while 100% of the bulk is already sourced from Europe. Our shipping cartons are made of 80% recycled cardboard, while the use of Styrofoam is completely avoided in the filling material. In addition, our product folding boxes and the paper for all printed material such as brochures, posters and folding boxes are FSC certified.
Furthermore, the reduction of plastic waste is especially close to our hearts. We completely do without plastic caps for our practical dispensers and thus save almost 2 tonnes of plastic per year. Since the beginning of 2023, we have dispensed with the cellophaning of our products. This includes all our product series with the exception of three series whose folding box is too vulnerable. We are striving to remove 100% of the cellophaning and are currently working on planning the further steps for this.
All formulations are cruelty free. We place great value on natural and safe highly effective resources that are of plant and biotechnological origin. We also deliberately avoid potentially irritating ingredients such as fragrance allergens and dye, which therefore qualifies our SENSTIVE SKIN line for oncological skin care during chemotherapy.
Not only with regard to production do we orient ourselves towards the sustainable use of resources. True to the principle: "Naturalness wins", we also rely on natural colour tones and naturalness through woods from sustainable forestry in our building, which was newly constructed in 2020. Both inside and outside the building, only high-quality and natural materials from regional suppliers are used.
As a family business, we attach great importance to long-term and personal relationships, and this naturally includes our employees. They are the heart of JANSSEN COSMETICS and work together with us for the success of the company. A safe, healthy and attractive working environment is therefore a must. Only with respect, honesty and trust can we ensure professionalism and success. Our shared knowledge is the basis and we always want to develop this further and pass it on. Internal workshops and training courses as well as any further training opportunities ensure this and contribute to sustainable business.
In addition, we support e-mobility and thus also our employees in making the switch by providing them with parking spaces with charging facilities as well as a company-owned e-car for business trips & co. Our warehouse logistics already use exclusively electric forklift trucks to keep Co² emissions as low as possible.
The cooperation with our partners, suppliers and customers is based on personal and long-term relationships - always respectful, trusting and reliable. We grow together, both nationally and internationally. We sensitise our partners worldwide for more environmental awareness and sustainability.
In order to drive continuous further development in the area of environmental protection and sustainability, new resource-saving measures are and will remain an important part of our agenda. All JANSSEN COSMETICS packaging should be 100% recyclable and further reduce the use of plastic. All packaging and materials are to be made of FSC-certified paper and no longer receive cellophane wrapping. We are already looking for further possibilities and ways to choose more avoidance instead of compensation in the future.
