The role of organic products in global, ecological and social responsibility

The founders of the BIO organic certification based their approach on respect for both the environment and mankind.
In the case of Ciel d’Azur LABS, this ethos governs everything from the cultivation of the raw materials through to the finished product.

1. Ethical farming and cultivation
  • Organic
  • Fairly traded

2. Ethical Manufacturing & product development
  • Native aloe: up to 98% in cosmetics and over 99% in drinking products
  • No added water
  • No substances that are harmfull:
    • to the environment, such as palm oil (deforestation)
    • to consumers, such as sulphates (skin irritation)
    • to animals, such as ingredients of animal origin
  • No outer-wrapping
3. Ethical packaging

Ciel d’Azur Labs is well aware of the tremendous impact of plastic packaging on the environment in general and on the oceans in specific.
We have therefore decided to use the materials that we consider to be the most eco-responsible to date:

  • Polyethylene made of sugar cane for our tubes.
    • Bio-sourced, this material has the benefit of a good carbon footprint as CO2 is fixed during the growth of the plant. While for 1 kilo of PE from oil there are about 2 kilos of CO2 released into the atmosphere, 3 kilos are fixed in the soil by the cultivation of the sugar cane.
    • Unlike oil, which takes millions of years to form and whose deposits are depleting, sugar cane is rapidly renewable. It represents only 0.02% of the cultivable land in Brazil, the main sugarcane producing country.
    • These crops, which require little water, are often grown on former pastures and even contribute to the re-vegetation of these lands. There is also no risk of deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, which lies 2,000 km to the north.
    • Finally, this PE from sugar cane is identical to that obtained from oil. It therefore does not require any specific recycling channel.
  • 100% recycled PET for our bottles.
    • Has the advantage of reducing the production of virgin PET and thus reducing the saturation of plastic in nature. This recycled PET generates 17 times less CO2 emissions than virgin PET obtained from oil.

  • No supermarkets or hypermarkets
  • No export to countries that require animal testing (such as China) or mandatory outer-wrapping (such as Japan)
  • Contribution to 1% For The Planet network
5. Ethical social practices
  • Minimum wages above the national minimum
  • Employees trained in the principles of organic farming

  • Eco-friendly building :
    • Bio-sourced materials
    • Natural air conditioning
    • No smoke emissions
7. Ehtical Energy use
  • The 1000m2 of photovoltaic panels at Ciel d’Azur Labs ensure the energy autonomy of our greenhouse and a portion of the energy needed to manufacture our products.
  • The remaining energy comes from a green electricity supplier.
  • Thermal panels generate a large part of the hot water for production.

To offset the carbon footprint of our operations, we plant trees through associations members of 1% For The Planet:

  • Planting 12,000 trees in Sumatra in 2019 with SOS Orangutans.
  • Planting of 60,000 trees in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana in 2020-2021 with Noé.

These projects ensure sustainable forest management by and for the benefit of local communities.

222,685€ raised for the Planet since 2019
1% of turnover

1% For The Planet is a network of companies that have committed to donating 1% of their turnover to organisations dedicated to protecting the environment.

Nearly 1,300 member companies and growing

Pur’Aloé joined 1% for the Planet in March 2018. The movement currently has over 1,300 member companies in almost 40 countries.

Contributing to change

What these companies all have in common is an awareness that the world of business is partially responsible for the current environmental crisis and therefore share a strong urge to bring about change.
