IMPACT AND COMMITMENt
FAIR PAY AND LABOUR
Made in France, LA FERVANCE abides by European laws that govern health and safety and work closely with their suppliers to ensure they do as well. As such, many of their suppliers have won multiple awards for corporate responsibility, sustainability, welfare and innovation. As LA FERVANCE is a female-led business, they have an equal pay policy, and gender equality is an integral part of their company ethos.
LA FERVANCE uses European made glass packaging wherever possible and is deeply committed to reducing the amount of plastic found in waterways. They intend to work with companies which remove plastic from the oceans and are also committed to preserving forests and halting land degradation and biodiversity loss. The use of French and European made packaging and many key ingredients minimizes the impact of transporting goods to their production facilities in France.
SUSTAINABLY-SOURCED NATURAL INGREDIENTS
The ingredients in every LA FERVANCE product are traceable and of 100% natural origins, and all ingredients are sustainably-sourced and COSMOS-certified. All of their products are free from propylene glycol and micro beads, and they do not use any harsh chemicals. They are also microplastic-free, and their organic ingredients are certified by Ecocert. All of their ingredients are traceable and they offer their community the opportunity to understand where each ingredient comes from and what its purpose is.
All of LA FERVANCE packaging is 100% recyclable and COSMOS-certified, using glass primary packaging and FSC-accredited, fine Italian made papers for their cartons. All of the glass used in their product packaging is recyclable and they are investigating a refill program This would enable consumers to purchase product refills for their existing jars and bottles instead of purchasing replacement products in brand new packaging.
Along with their own commitments to protecting the environment, LA FERVANCE does and will continue to work only with suppliers who operate in a sustainable and environmentally safe way. They have developed water-free products which will be released in 2020 and continue to encourage this type of innovation, both within their own company and with their suppliers.
They are working to reduce waste across their business model and minimise their water usage, too. All of the employees throughout their supply chain are educated on these policies via a video tutorial.
Being an independently funded beauty start up, we had initially encouraged donations to a selection of organisations raising funds for those in need. However, as the essence of our brand is based on the Australian landscape, we feel it necessary to go further by pledging to donate 20 euros from the sale of every ÉCLAT EXTRAORDINAIRE to the wildlife and the firefighting charity funds until Australia Day on 26 January 2020.
