Accurately communicating packaging environmental attributes can strengthen the positive perception of cosmetic brands. These guidelines have dual objectives: 1. Establish the minimum requirements and strong recommendations for providing credible packaging sustainability information to consumers and other audiences 2. Encourage the development of more sustainable packaging through the desire to make stronger claims Initiative Co-founded by Quantis and L'Oreal
These guidelines have dual objectives: 1. Establish the minimum requirements and strong recommendations for providing credible packaging sustainability information to consumers and other audiences 2. Encourage the development of more sustainable packaging through the desire to make stronger claims The document takes a sectorial approach that is not brand-specific. All proposed packaging claims follow the ISO 14021:2016 principles on self-declared environmental claims, ISO LCA guidelines ISO 14044:2006 and general principles on environmental declarations and labels ISO 14020:2000. This document focuses only on environmental packaging claims in the cosmetic sector. In May 2018, L’Oréal and Quantis launched SPICE, Sustainable Packaging Initiative for CosmEtics, a pre-competitive initiative that now includes 24 global cosmetics brands and organizations along the packaging value chain. Together, SPICE members co-create methodologies and tools to drive the future of sustainable packaging for cosmetics. The Cosmetics Packaging Claims Guidelines rely on the SPICE Methodological Guidelines for carrying out quantified environmental packaging assessments in the cosmetics industry.
