Childs Farm to explore sustainability at scale during SCS conference

Childs Farm will give a presentation at this year’s UK Society of Cosmetic Scientists (SCS) annual conference next month about how personal care companies can maintain their sustainable credentials as business grows.

Head of technical, regulatory and sustainability Louise Norman will talk delegates through the steps the brand has taken and how this fits with becoming part of a global conglomerate.

Last year, it was announced that PZ Cussons had acquired Childs Farm, which was started by Joanna Jensen after struggling to find suitable skincare for her two young girls who had sensitive skin.

To date, the steps the company has taken in their move towards sustainability include the introduction of bottles made entirely from plastic that would otherwise have ended up in the ocean, and becoming a certified B Corp.

While some would argue that sustainable credentials are imperative for success, others fear that as a brand scales up, it has the potential to lose control over its supply chain and manufacturing processes.

Norman’s presentation, ‘The Childs Farm sustainability journey and our plans for the future as part of the PZ Cussons family’, will address this.

The SCS annual conference takes place at Angela Ruskin University Science Centre in Cambridge on 4-5 July.
