Fair for Life award for argan active
For the fourth time, BASF Beauty Care Solutions has been awarded the “Fair For Life” (FFL) label by Ecocert for its active ingredient Lipofructyl Argan.
Under this Fair Trade standard, the organic certification organisation evaluates the social, environmental and local impact of supply chains. Derived from the hand-picked fruit of the argan tree, the moisturising oil Lipofructyl Argan is part of BASF’s sustainable Argan Program, which was established in 2005. The original aim of the program was to study the argan tree and valorizes the oil and its byproducts while diversifying the revenue of the cooperatives and fostering preservation of argan forests by local populations.
“Conscious consumerism and ethical beauty are key drivers for the Personal Care industry. People are increasingly looking for products that are as good for them as they are for the planet and its residents,” said Amandine Peguin, raw material sourcing manager at BASF Beauty Care Solutions. “We are very pleased that we can facilitate this important development with our Argan program. The renewed certification by Ecocert for our active ingredient is a recognition of our efforts.”
