Our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy - "Be ACTIVEly Committed"

Clean beauty corresponds to a demand for healthy, ethical and eco-conscious products. Sederma, Crodarom and Alban Muller are elevating the concept to “committed beauty” by providing transparency along the entire supply chain, to the benefit of all.

We focus our innovation on providing sustainable ingredients, manufactured using ethically sourced raw materials. We understand the necessity to preserve our environment and its diversity, whilst developing extracts with minimised ethical, social and environmental impacts.

We are fully aligned with the Croda group Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy, and are actively committed to achieve the global target of being Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030. We work intensively with our supply chain to develop products that deliver more benefits, with less impact by using a code of conduct covering both responsible relationships and purchasing. This code of conduct formalises our commitments and unites our partners around our shared values.

Using the ISO 26000 social responsibility guidance standard, we are committed to minimise social and environmental impacts on our stakeholders without compromising innovation and quality.


"Sustainable businesses employ a holistic view of doing business by placing equal emphasis on the Planet, People and profit"

Discover the ERI 360 label

The ERI 360 ° label is an Eco Responsible label created by France Eco Extraction in cooperation with the PASS (Perfumes Flavors Fragrances & Scents) competitiveness cluster and 13 French suppliers of aromas and cosmetic ingredients including Sederma and Crodarom.

By assessing raw materials, supply chains, processes and practices, this sustainable evaluation tool allows us to accurately evaluate the entire ingredient production chain of our active ingredients and measure their ethical, social and environmental performances. 

There are three levels of labelling (gold, silver, bronze) which result from the level of success obtained during the evaluation.
