More recycled materials


A large number of products, launched in 2016 by various Group brands, incorporate more and more recycled plastic in their packaging.

Biolage R.A.W., Aura Botanica by Kérastase and L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Fresh Care shampoo bottles, are 100% composed of recycled plastic (except for the caps and pumps) and can in turn be sorted and recycled after use.

The same dynamic is at play concerning the incorporation of recycled glass in packaging, up to 25% for Lancôme, L’Oréal Paris, L’Oréal Professionnel, Roger&Gallet and Vichy.
