|Gattefossé Gets Mass Balance RSPO Certification
for Lipocire Product
Palm Oil RSPO Certification
Committed to promote the use of sustainable palm oil, Gattefossé has been a member of the RSPO organization since 2010 which supports cooperatives and producers of a sustainable palm oil.
In 2016, to consolidate its position towards sustainability, the company decided to use 100% of RSPO products issued from segregated channels for its entire Lipocire ™ range and got a new certification for Lipocire™ DM
This year, the group expands its commitment by adopting the Mass Balance (MB) grade for three of its products. This grade allows the combination of RSPO certified and non-certified palm oils at any stage of the supply chain, provided that all quantities are controlled at the company's main production site in Saint-Priest (France).
Since March 1st, three of its cosmetic ingredients, Emulium® Mellifera MB
, Emulium® Delta MB
and Acticire® MB
, are certified with this new Mass Balance grade.
