Following its ethical and sustainable commitments, Clarins takes one step further in consumer transparency by launching T.R.U.S.T., a one-of-a-kind platform base on blockchain technology to share full traceability of the ingredients that go into product formulas as well as the manufacturing process. Starting today with the latest product batch numbers, anyone has access to:
- All steps in the product manufacturing process – including quality and safety controls, where the product has been formulated and packed.
- Exhaustive information regarding plant-based ingredients – including geographical origin, harvesting method, and Clarins sourcing certifications.
- Behind the Clarins expertise – via visuals and testimonies from our factory, laboratories, and overall facilities in Pontoise (France).
To make T.R.U.S.T. possible, Clarins uses blockchain technology to ensure the safety and transparency of the process. Blockchain technology is used to store and transmit information in the safest way possible as it does not have a centralized control system. It forms a database that records secured exchanges between different users (suppliers, producers) and once a piece of information is entered in the system, the blockchain technology certifies their authenticity, without allowing anything to be modified.
Clarins T.R.U.S.T. is an ongoing initiative and while not all products and ingredients are available yet, the list is growing every day for total transparency. 30 products and 40 plant extracts can now be found, and there will be close to 100 by the end of 2023.
By simply entering a product batch code on the Clarins T.R.U.S.T. platform, anyone can have access to the manufacturing process and discover the origins of its plant ingredients: https://traceability.trust.clarins.com/en_US
