Total transparency and zero tolerance
With the ever-growing “green” phenomenon, cosmetic manufacturers are anticipating the new expectations of consumers who are increasingly checking on the origin of products and ingredients, the manufacturing conditions... Transparency has therefore become the rule in the beauty industry.
With this in mind, the Alkos Group continues to imagine new sustainable and innovative solutions that respect the environment and its customers.
100% Made in France production
Environmental and societal issues are part of the Group’s DNA, which has always been committed to promoting Made in France products.
Its three plants are located in France - Alkos Cosmétiques in Boulogne-sur-Mer, Inter Cosmétiques in Angers and SAGAL Cosmétiques in Chartres. The Alkos Group produces all its products (pencils, make-up, skincare, soaps and sticks) in France, thus contributing to the local sourcing, involving most of the major players in the French cosmetics industry.
Natural formulas and eco-designed packaging
The Alkos Group, which has been specialising in a full service offer for many years, proposes eco-friendly solutions both in terms of formulation and packaging, which are consistent with its CSR approach. After partnering with the RPC Group to offer a 100% Made in France Chubby pencil offering (reduced carbon footprint and shortened lead times), the Group proposes for its new range of “Natural Beauty” products, packs made of recycled materials. At Cosmopack, the Group will unveil a range of almost 100% natural make-up and skincare products in PCR tubes or bottles and a range of pencils with several textures, coated with cellulose!
Bio-based cellulose-made pencils
At Cosmopack, the Alkos Group will present for the first time a brand new technological innovation consisting of cellulose pencils made from recycled paper fibres. An innovative solution for a sustainable and ecological recycling.
These pencils made of bio-based materials can be sharpened as easily as wood or plastic pencils. In terms of formulation the main advantage is that these pencils can be filled with either 100% natural “Clean” formulas or long-lasting waterproof formulas requiring an airtight container. An ecological alternative to plastic of course but also to wood, a natural resource to protect.
