A rising interest
Consumers across the world are becoming more interested in all-natural products, as part of a healthier lifestyle and their perceptions that natural offerings are safer.
The plus factor: responsibilty
Consumers are more closely evaluating companies’ environmental and social responsibility.
A noticable gap
A larger number of consumers want “green” products but have difficulty accessing products that truly deliver on environmental parameters.
Ecosystem services: linking nature and people
The World Wildlife Fund’s “One Planet Perspective” encourages companies to align their activities so that they are actively contributing to a healthy and resilient planet for future generations:
- preserve natural capital
- produce more sustainably
- equitable resource governance
- redirect financial flows
- consume more wisely
Ingredients tracking „from farm to face“ can strengthen consumers confidence in the ingredients authenticity.
