What's a dry factory?
Commitments

At L’Oréal, we use the term “Dry Factory” to refer to a plant where the only water consumption is that used in the composition of products (ex: water as raw material) or for human consumption (ex: water for coffee). This means that 100% of the water used for industrial processes, such as tank cleaning, is purified and reused for other processes on-site such as cooling or washing other types of equipment.
