THE MULTI-STAKEHOLDER MOVEMENT FOR CLEAN BEAUTY
The Clean Economy is here and the beauty and personal care industry can lead the way. Men and women across the globe are taking note of their beauty products, demanding safe ingredient lists, transparency about where their cosmetics come from, and confidence in the products that will enhance their natural beauty in a sustainable way.
#TheFutureOfClean is a movement to define a comprehensive view of “clean” reflecting these values and to promote strategies and technology that help brands meet this demand to reach billions across the globe. It brings together formulators, marketers, R&D experts, media, influencers and customers to support a sustainable and brighter future. Aprinnova is leading the way by publishing clean beauty market trends and formulation resources, hosting industry events, and forging partnerships. On April 1 at In-Cosmetics we kicked off the Future of Clean in Paris with over 200 industry experts.
FROM CLEAN WASHING TO CLEAN IMPACT
Products that are free-from certain ingredients may not be sustainable. Natural ingredients may not be safe. Sustainable ingredients may not be effective. Only if products consider all these principles can we meet what consumers and brands deserve: truly “clean” products. We know this isn’t easy. But as a rising global middle class demands better personal care amidst the need to address climate change, we must embrace this opportunity to make a real step change. By engaging with diverse voices from both industry and consumer perspectives, we can forward these ideals, support dialog, identify challenges and strive toward new technologies and solutions to achieve a global standard for clean.
Our Clean Beauty Principles
We believe clean products start with clean ingredients. These criteria, outlined below, are a framework to help brands launch genuinely clean products across any category.
Ingredients should always be effective, results-driven, beneficial, and of the highest purity
Ingredients should always be sustainably and renewably sourced
Ingredients should always have transparent supply chains and full supporting documentation
Ingredients should always contribute toward achieving high safety standards like EWG verification for final products
We want to shift the idea that “Clean Beauty” is just a trend. We believe Clean should define Beauty as a whole. So we say Clean is Beauty, and Beauty is all of our core clean principes.
Clean is Beauty: Beauty is Performance
Clean is Beauty: Beauty is Sustainability
Clean is Beauty: Beauty is Transparency
Clean is Beauty: Beauty is Safety
