“Travel retail plays an important part in our brand omnichannel strategy as a key driver in the development of Nuxe as a global brand,” said Caroline Goix, Global Travel Retail Sales & Marketing Manager, Nuxe.
“Innovative skincare products like Super Serum and Merveillance Lift are important drivers of that development and are great examples of our brand delivering against our sustainability commitments.”
The company has been committed to pursuing an ‘eco-design approach’ for it products ever since it was established 30 years ago.
From the formulations to the packaging, distribution, ensuring consumer safety and protecting the environment, the ethos shines through in many areas of the business.
Key objectives in Nuxe’s plan to further improve its sustainability performance include achieving a further 20% reduction in the use of plastic for its packaging by 2025.
This is on top of ensuring 100% of its ingredients are fully traceable and, in terms of bio-diversity protection, being capable of genetically tracing 85% of its plant actives.Animal welfare is also a long-standing concern.
With the one exception of its Rêve de Miel range (due to its natural honey ingredient), all other Nuxe products are vegetarian (with no animal ingredients).
Furthermore, 90% are also vegan.
