OUR ENVIRONMENTAL ENGAGEMENTS

Discover how YSL Beauty is changing the rules in developing beauty products for now and future generations to come.

For several years we have been developing products in a way that limits their impact on the environment at each stage of the lifecycle, from the design stage through to the end of the product’s life.



This means Eco-design with no compromise on YSL Beauté’s quality and luxury standards. Our mission is to reduce the environmental footprint of our product formulas by sourcing more raw materials in a responsible, sustainable way that respects biodiversity, optimising packaging and committing to zero deforestation.



UNDERSTANDING OUR STORIES

Eco-design packaging

For all our products, gift sets and wrapping material, we will be favouring reusable, refillable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging, and the substitution of plastic materials with more sustainable alternatives.

Eco-designed packaging mean the creams and serums in our Pure Shots or Or Rouge skincare ranges can be refilled repeatedly to reduce the enviromental impact.

INNOVATIVE RESEARCH

The Ourika Gardens have become a source of inspiration for the creation of makeup, skincare, & fragrances. By creating and supporting gardens for growing ingredients, with a space entirely dedicated to botanical research, YSL Beauty has adopted an innovative and socially responsible approach. 

SUSTAINABLE SOURCING

It is here that the brand's scientists identify ingredients benefits to create products with more sustainable research methods. In these gardens ireses, sage, mint, prickly pear, marigold, walnut trees and verbena all thrive alongside precious saffron.

The unique microclimate, shielded by mountains, dry summers and cold winters provides optimal growing conditions for vegetations. This long-term project, directly inspired by permaculture, brings together all the advantages of virtuous and quality productions: plants which grow as the seasons unfold, in a pollution-free soil, according to organic farming methods. From these ideal conditions, plants are prepared to make the best ingredients. Above all, it's the quality of the raw materials that makes quality products.
