French active ingredient marker Gattefossé has added Gatuline RC Bio and EleVastin to its ERI 360°-accredited portfolio.
ERI 360°, co-created by cosmetics industry players including Gattefossé, and developed by Innov’Alliance and a panel of scientific experts, measures ethical, social and environmental performance from harvesting to the factory gate.
Gatuline RC Bio, an active skin care ingredient is made from an extract of beech buds and does not use any chemical solvent from the harvesting of the buds to the production of the final extract.
This ingredient is COSMOS certified and reaches 96.8% natural origin content according to ISO 16128 norms.
EleVastin, an active ingredient to boost the elastic potential of the skin and fights skin sagging, extracted from the leafy stems of the Murraya koenigii tree.
The ingredient is obtained using a mixture of natural solvents belonging to the family of natural LTTM (Low-Transition Temperature Mixture) and gentle extraction process (NaDES).
EleVastin is COSMOS approved and has 100% natural origin content according to ISO 16128 norms.
In 2021, the Gattefossé group labelled three active ingredients of its personal care portfolio, Gatuline Link n Lift, Gatuline Renew and EnergiNius under the ERI 360° label.
“At Gattefossé, ERI 360° allows us to reinforce the eco-responsibility of ingredients on a daily basis, a priority issue of the company’s CSR roadmap, Gatt’Up&Act,” the company said.
"We see the ERI 360° label as a key tool for our research and development teams to optimize the sourcing of our raw materials, to integrate the principles of eco-design at each stage of the development of our personal care ingredients and to manage their implementation right up to production,” it added.
