Energy Efficient Production of Cosmetics
An Initiative and Guideline by the Swiss Cosmetic Industry
The path to decarbonisation and sustainability will be eased with an increase in efficiency and lesser use of energy. The Swiss Society of Cosmetic Chemists in cooperation with 2 research institutions and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy started in 2020 a project to examine 6 innovative Efficiency Concepts (EC) within three companies, one of them a large quantity producer, another known for its high value products and one OEM manufacturer. The results will be summarized later within Guidelines; a document to share.
