Responsibly sourced fragrances
We’re very proud to work with our fragrance house partners Firmenich and Givaudan. Their responsible sourcing and social sustainability programs make sure the naturally-derived ingredients we use are farmed in ways that benefit the local communities where the crops are grown. We make it our business to know the origin of the ingredients that we use — so here are some of those natural ingredients, and exactly where we source them...
From Haiti: vetiver
Love the refreshing aroma of our Dove Men+Care Cool Fresh Antiperspirant range? That’s vetiver, an oil taken from a plant root. The best quality vetiver comes from Haiti, but while the price of vetiver has increased, the farmers’ access to basic needs is still quite low. That’s why Firmenich has helped to develop a responsible project focusing on social sustainability. This secures our supply while supporting farmers through premium prices and giving improved access to healthcare and education. We’re so proud of this sustainable development.
