From the beginning, environmental care has been a deep-rooted commitment in the philosophy of Germaine de Capuccini. We categorically reject animal testing and the use of animal bi-products.

All of the Germaine de Capuccini range is paraben free.

Microbead Free

We do not use microbeads in any of our formulations.

Palm Oil

Since 2013 Germaine de Capuccini has only used Palm Oil with the RSPO label and has been affiliated with companies leading the way in the development of sustainable cultivation of palm oil and apl kernel since 2010.  You can continue to purchase your products safe in the knowledge you are purchasing products from a responsible and reliable company with strong ethical and moral values.

The RSPO label ensures products are made with a certified and sustainable manner, using palm oil that respects the environment and communities where it is grown.

Social Commitment

All of our natural ingredients are sustainably and ethically sourced, supported by programmes such as the BEE of South Africa. BEE offer development opportunities for the discriminated minorities.
