Committed to Nature
Our environment is our responsibility
The most important pillar of the Culture of Total Beauty is always the individual, as a customer, as a partner and as an employee. We believe business and sustainability are not two separate things. Instead, one entity that are in balance with each other. La Biosthétique endeavors to create a strong business and even better world, harmoniously and successfully partnered together. We combine nature and science through intensive research and insist on only the best, raw ingredients to develop and produce eco-friendly, highly effective cosmetics for hair and skin.
For the past 70 years, La Biosthétique continues to explore new and advanced ways to become more environmentally resonsible. As a proud, family company, we endeavor to make our professional environment a homely place with an experience based on a core of ecological responsibility and roots as sincere and honest beyond trends.
La Biosthétique believes sustainability begins with natural, raw ingredients derived from the gentlest of treatment resources while being formulated by our leading team of biochemical professionals who continuously seek advanced cosmetic technologies. Fast forward to our commitment to minimizing the impact on the environment, our entire entire manufacturing process from our hands to your hands, never compromises the quality or quantity of natural resources.
The production and testing process
La Biosthétique products include natural and organic ingredients as well as combinations of pharmaceutical graded and controlled ingredients. All products use more than 60% naturally derived ingredients, plant ingredients and non-petroleum minerals. Within state of the art laboratories, our products are derived within manufacturing headquarters in the Black Forest, Germany. All products are free of artificial fragrances, colors or genetically modified ingredients which have been scientifically tested and dermatologically confirmed by institutes for independent testing in cooperation with university clinics using voluntary testers.
Further to this, our European, carbon-neutral footprint includes 100% of our production being run on renewable, green energy from wind and sun at the offices and manufacturing centers. Similarly, La Biosthétique follows a strict recycling program for our manufacturing processes, including the use of recycled packaging and materials.
Many of our products rely on 'controlled agriculture' meaning that the way in which the ingredient is grown and harvested is sustainable. This covers many oils such as sunflower oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, etc. We also support fair trade for some of our ingredients. All of our natural ingredients are bio-degradable. A lot of our synthetic ingredients are bio-degradable as well because of their bio-mimetic properties.

La Biosthetique strictly forbids animal testing for any of our products.
Our products don’t contain any part of animals, however they may contain some animal derivatives such as beeswax (found within our lipsticks) or, keratin and lanolin (derived from sheep wool).
