Ducray Dermatological Laboratories has therefore fine-tuned a biodegradable formula without compromising on effectiveness and preserving all the shampoo's styling qualities, as well as its original fragrance. In addition,

In 2012, Ducray Dermatological Laboratories strengthened its eco-responsible approach in terms of its Extra-Doux shampoo, taking part in the Zanbal project. Thanks to this solidarity project, Ducray Dermatological Laboratories compensates for 100% of the greenhouse gas emissions linked to producing its Extra-Doux Shampoo.

 By developing its line of hair-repair products with desert date, Klorane embarks on a project that meets the three pillars of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. Recognized for its exemplary nature, this global approach was certified Ecocert 26000 - level of excellence: a first in the dermo-cosmetics world.

The entire haircare line with desert date is eco-designed with 100% biodegradable formulas and eco-designed packaging:

  • A life cycle assessment is performed for every product in the line
  • The desert date palm nut is harvested respecting the surrounding eco-system, helping to develop the local economy
  • The extract is created respecting the principles of green chemistry: the extraction phase uses a green solvent at the Pierre Fabre Extraction Factory that is ISO 14001 certified, and dried on a plant support
  • Short supply chains are chosen, with the line 80% made in France. For the shampoo, the date extract, bottle and end product are all produced within a 14-mile radius
  •  100% biodegradable formulas, containing no silicone
  • Eco-designed packaging:
    • the shampoo bottle is made with 50% recycled PET, reducing greenhouse gas emissions related to the packaging by 13%, and 25% lighter tubes to save 0.6 tons of plastic, while maintaining solidity and transparency,
    • boxes and inserts made of PEFC-certified paper (from sustainably managed forests)
       
  • We help to raise public awareness regarding recycling through our partnership with Eco Emballage.

A responsible line, it supports an ambitious social and economic project: the Great Green Wall.
