Environmental Protection and Sustainability
Environmental awareness plays an increasing role in occupational skin protection. The growing demand for ecologically responsible products leads to an increasing range of products that save the skin and the environment as well. Instead of mineral oil, Peter Greven Physioderm increasingly often chooses oils, fats and waxes based on natural and renewable raw materials, e.g. olive oil, rice germ oil or beeswax. Certifications like the EU Ecolabel classify skin cleansing agents as especially sustainable.
The EU Ecolabel shows a stylized flower with 12 stars surroundig the Greek letter “e“ for Europe. Therefore, the EU Ecolabel is called Euro Flower as well. The European Commission awards the popular label to those products and services having a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle. The EU Ecolabel is recognised in all 28 EU member states as well as in Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Turkey. Thus, the Euro Flower is a Europe-wide reference for consumers, willing to support a sustainable production and environmentally-friendly products.
In terms of environmental sustainability, the criteria of the voluntary EU Ecolabel exceed the statutory provisions by far. Non-food products are mainly rated regarding use of raw and hazardous materials, water and power consumption as well as choice of packaging and its disposal. In Germany, the RAL gGmbH is responsible for assessing the product against the criteria set for it, acting on behalf of the European Commission. The EU Ecolabel can only be used if all criteria are fulfilled.
