Treating nature with the utmost respect

Sustainability & Responsibility

Sustainability & Responsibility

Anyone wishing to preserve beauty needs to treat it with caution and respect. At BABOR, we are committed to treating our environment with the utmost care. After all, it is nature that gifts us the many precious raw materials that we use to produce our high quality products.
As such, we are always aware of our ecological and social responsibilities. Responsibility and sustainability: these are the principles that govern our business. We implement these principles by actively working to protect the environment, as a part of our daily life and through supporting environmental projects across the globe. A good conscience is one beauty secret that BABOR is only too happy to reveal.


Our natural power.
At BABOR, environmental protection comes directly from the electrical outlet. We use only naturally derived electricity from the energy provider RWE. In addition, our staff members have a green ignition; in cooperation with Aachen's local energy provider STAWAG, BABOR provides incentives to staff members to switch to environmentally friendly cars. Also, an electrical filling station on the company premises is available to charge the BABOR E-Car! So, you see, BABOR is not just a pioneer when it comes to beauty, but also in the field of energy consumption.

BABOR goes green.

BABOR takes great pride in its carbon-neutral shipping of products from Aachen to distributors worldwide.  As a member of the GOGREEN service, initiated by the logistics company DHL, the carbon that is emitted during transport is offset by climate protection projects. As an example, through participation in the financing of a biogas plant and the support of the reforestation of the rainforest, BABOR saved 69.36 tons of CO2 in 2010 alone. This is equivalent to the carbon emissions created by almost six flights around the world!

Barking up the right tree.
Since 2010, BABOR promotional materials have been solely printed on FSC-certified paper. As a non-profit and independent organisation, the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) works to promote responsible forestry in order to control deforestation and to protect the environment.

A heart for animals.
Respect for nature also means respect for its creatures. BABOR never has and never will conduct animal testing when evaluating the efficacy of new active ingredient complexes.  Animal testing is absolutely off-limits.
