Sustainability - Consumer Brands

We are an established leader in technology, pioneering with impactful innovations and sustainable solutions. A look back at our company’s history shows that we revolutionized the consumer goods industry already multiple times – by launching the first self-active laundry detergent product as well as the first liquid hair shampoo ever on the market.
We are contributing to solving global challenges by delivering a sustainable choice to our consumers with our innovative high performing products from our hair and laundry & home care categories. At the same time, we are driving systemic change through our partnerships.
