Okay, here’s the truth: the Herbal Essences sustainability programme makes mindful decisions to reduce our impact on Earth’s landfills and water supplies. Why?
So we can make Mother Nature PROUD. This is just the first step, and we’re excited to continue our progress. For you. For the planet. For our products.
Little by little, a little becomes a lot.

Beach plastic bottles for a cleaner world
We believe in the positive power of nature through real botanicals, real people, and real impact on the planet.
That's why we've made the shampoo bottles in our pure Aloe collection recyclable and made up of 25% recycled plastics. By launching this initiative we are aiming to save almost 27 tonnes of plastic!
In 2016, we began purchasing certified renewable electricity credits, which come from windmills, for our Blois factory.
This ensures that more renewable energy is added to the electricity grid, displacing conventional fuels like coal, nuclear or natural gas from the electricity system. Since 2010, our Herbal Essences manufacturing sites around the world have reduced our total absolute energy by about 9%, and total absolute gas emissions by more than 15%. We are doing more so we can lessen our impact on the environment.
Reduce manufacturing waste
Herbal Essences manufacturing sites are working hard to reduce waste. How?
For example, at our Iowa City factory, our scrap bottles are repurposed to make flower pots. Fifty percent of our manufacturing sites are even zero manufacturing waste to landfill.
We’re making a concerted effort to protect our world’s most precious resource.
From 2010 to 2016, our Herbal Essences sites around the world reduced total absolute water consumption by over 20% – and that’s only the beginning.
