Garnier is at the forefront of formulating natural & naturally inspired products, a legacy which began when Garnier patented the first-ever plant-based hair lotion back in 1904.
More recently, Garnier has made major steps towards becoming a more natural and sustainable brand. Garnier has transformed many of its products, with formulas of more than 90% natural origin ingredients, certified organic product ranges, and vegan formulas. Garnier has also reduced the weight of some packaging, as well as ensuring it is made from recycled plastic and is more recyclable.
Today, Garnier aims to go further and commit to Green Beauty, an end-to-end approach to sustainability.
Green Beauty is set to transform Garnier, helping to reduce the brand’s environmental impact at every stage of its value chain.
“As a world leading mass-market natural beauty brand, we have the opportunity and responsibility to impact real change. Green Beauty will transform the way we do business. Developed with the help of our partners, researchers and customers, this initiative highlights a range of ambitious goals, underpinned by tangible targets. We pledge to lessen our impact on the planet and innovate for a sustainable future. It will take time, but Green Beauty will transform Garnier, and we hope the beauty industry as a whole.”

The Green Beauty initiative includes a Sustainability Progress Report, offering complete transparency on Garnier’s commitments, which can be tracked publicly via the Garnier website. This report states where Garnier stands today, mapping out the process of how the brand will reach ambitious targets by 2025. It provides a clear and trackable summary of Garnier’s commitments, work which has been completed with the help of experts and scientists. All data in the progress report has also been assessed by an external auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
