Made it! Sederma has gained UEBT membership. The Union for Ethical BioTrade (https://www.ethicalbiotrade.org/) validated the action plan proposed by Sederma following the 2-day audit earlier this year.
This major step for Sederma is part of the CSR strategy "Be Actively Committed" and more broadly of the Croda Group's vision "Smart Science to Improve Lives™". “This approach echoes Croda’s sustainable commitment to be Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030 (www.croda.com/sustainability) and reinforces our ambition to be an essential supplier of responsible cosmetic solutions and ingredients” said Arnaud Fournial, Sederma Managing Director. Developing sourcing with local partners in the plant collection areas, respecting traditional know-how, improving the living conditions of local populations, mastering the traceability of raw materials of natural origin for more transparency and ethics are at the heart of Sederma development strategy for sustainable business and to meet the requirements of customers and consumers.
