Eco-friendly packaging


Clarins takes a permanent innovation approach to our packaging. This means that over the years, eco-design principles have guided every stage of our package development process. Our teams work together to find responsible solutions that combine high performance, ease-of-use, and sustainability.

Advancing the circular economy

Promoting a circular economy requires using materials that are easily recyclable; and when recycling cannot be guaranteed as in the case of some plastics, opting for post-consumer recycled materials (PCR) made from single-use packaging.

Supporting Plastic Odyssey

Clarins, the first official partner

Clarins was the first to support the Plastic Odyssey project—a boat that is powered solely by the energy generated from plastic waste harvested at each of its stops, during a three year voyage around the globe.

We want to help build a better world for future generations. It might seem like a utopian ideal, but we believe in it.”

Christian & Olivier Courtin-Clarins, directors of the Clarins Group.

Plastic Odyssey is the first expedition to educate people about plastic recycling, and preserving our oceans. It delivers low-tech solutions to the worst-polluting countries, so they can turn plastic into a resource.
