In our list of banned substances, we specify the maximum values for application concentrations or possible impurities and ban more than 60 individual substances as well as various groups of substances that we do not use for our products.
Raw materials that we do not use because of special sustainability requirements also end up on our banned list:
The raw material mica – also called glimmer – is responsible for the elegant shimmer effect of nail polish & co. Unfortunately, this natural rock is often extracted from mines under difficult conditions. A large proportion of the mica we use comes from India. In the past, there have been negative human rights implications for the workers and their families. Unfortunately, there have even been cases of child labor. We do not want to accept this.
