In 2017, the Vichy brand renovated its rich skincare treatment Aqualia Thermal. Using SPOT allowed the brand to quantify its exact progress on each of the four areas of improvement :
- regarding the packaging, the box was no longer laminated, which makes easier the recycling of packaging, the jar contained 10% recycled glass and the weight of the cap was reduced by 10g (-44%);
- the environmental footprint of the formula has been improved as the biodegradability rate increased from 71% to 97%;
- the proportion of renewable ingredients sourced sustainably or derived from green chemistry rose from 55% to 95%;
- the social impact has been improved as the product formula now includes shea butter produced via a sustainable sourcing programme developed in Burkina Faso and benefiting to more than 35,000 women producers.
