To be the best in the world, through beauty, ethics and harmony to create a good life for all.

Charter of Ethics

It is a set of our common ethical and corporate guidelines developed by all members of the Davines Group.

The Charter helps to reflect ethical values in everyday life and to contribute to the well-being of every human being. For the first time, the Charter was adopted in 2005. written by a philosopher and an employee of Davines. It does not contain rules or instructions, but rather suggestions on what ethical behaviors we want at work to achieve a better quality of life. Because it was important for us to share a value system that would guide and inspire all employees in the company, we had to carefully review our values.

2018 “New blossoming of the Carta Etica” reflecting the current DNA of the company’s ethics was introduced.

 

B corp

We have redefined business by looking at it as a positive force that can generate profits while having an ethical impact on people and the environment.

After 2016 We have decided to align our goals with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the UN 2030 on the agenda. We have incorporated these goals into our company strategy. This encourages us to make continuous improvements, so we are constantly undertaking new projects, setting new goals and monitoring the results that have been presented in our annual Sustainability Report.

 

Every Davines product is born of intuition and is crafted using the most advanced cosmetic technology.

The natural ingredients that are favored for use in the formulas are extracted using renewable electricity, and the products are packaged in such a way as to have the least possible impact on the environment. This process is inspired by the ideal of Sustainable Beauty as an inseparable unity of beauty and goodness.
