Tropical raw materials with fair trade standards
What is the proportion of certified tropical raw materials in Dr. Hauschka cosmetics?
96% of our tropical raw materials, such as palm oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil and carnauba wax, come from certified sources or WALA's own organic cultivation projects where we can absolutely guarantee fair trade standards. Fair trade standards mean fair working conditions and no child labour. 100% of the aforementioned 96% of tropical raw materials are sourced from controlled organic cultivation. Furthermore, 66% are certified by the international environmental protection organisation Rainforest Alliance, 22% are Fairtrade-certified and 8% come from a close, long-standing WALA partner. We generally re-check the good and fair working conditions offered by this partner once a year by conducting on-site visits.
