Cradle-to-cradle certification is becoming popular for companies such as Aveda and Kiehl’s as it gives a life-cycle analysis of cosmetic products.

These types of initiatives will be extensively featured in the upcoming Sustainable Cosmetics Summit, taking place in Paris, October, 18–20, 2010. The summit looks at how beauty companies can lower their environmental and social impacts by investing in green formulations, sustainable packaging, certification programs, biodiversity and ethical supply chains. The series of summits features leading organizations involved in such initiatives—Natura, Beraca, Burt’s Bees, Estée Lauder, MH Plastics, Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International, NaTrue, Ecocert, Givaudan and Cognis.
