Know your cosmetics supply chain

ChainPoint is committed to improving sustainability, social and ethical issues in many industries using our state-of-the art software platform. One such industry is the cosmetics and personal care industry.

Software solutions cosmetics supply chainSupply chains of cosmetics and personal care companies are, depending on the product, long and complex. Ingredients are sourced from all over the world and are prone to numerous issues along the supply chain. For example, shea nuts which are turned into shea butter, involving hundreds of thousands of rural women in Africa to pick and process the nuts into butter, often with unfair remuneration. Or mica sourced from unregulated mines in India, which are known for using child labour practices. These are just two examples with a significant impact. Many others exist, linked with social, ethical and environmental issues in the supply chain.

Sustainable Cosmetics Summit

At the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit in Paris, Anne Himeno will present how technology can help solve some of these issues in global cosmetics supply chains. It starts with visibility and transparency. Knowing where ingredients come from, collecting data available in the supply chain, and turning this into actionable information will give companies the tools needed to work on positive change for all stakeholders in the value chain.
