We are proud to announce that Hallstar Beauty's operation in Montpellier, France, has received a Platinum rating from EcoVadis. This award is a recognition of our company's commitment to social, environmental and economic fairness and sustainability.
The 1100 m2 Hallstar France facility was first established in 2010 as Oléos, offering eco-responsible cosmetic active ingredients thanks to a patented 100% green extraction process. Oléos became part of The Hallstar Company in 2016, and has continued to focus on bio-certifiable cosmetic solutions. Its Mediterranean Basin location, identified as one of 36 global hotspots for biodiversity, reflects our commitment to conserve or reduce use of natural resources.
Hallstar Beauty in France has earned high ratings from EcoVadis for the three years it has participated, receiving Gold medals in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
“At Hallstar Beauty, we never stop innovating, and that includes our continuous improvement efforts in corporate social responsibility,” says Coralie Rivet-Commeau, quality environment, health & safety leader for Hallstar France. “Social and environmental values have always been at theheart of our strategy, and we benefit from being part of an eco-system in the Sud de France region of young innovative companies promoting local biodiversity. Reaching EcoVadis Platinum status was a goal we set for ourselves, and I am gratified to see our core principles, our 100% eco-designed, 100% socio-responsible product innovations and our talented Montpellier team earn this distinction.”
The unique and high-performance Oléoactif® and Oléobooster® eco-actives developed in France leverage the best from nature to deliver a broad range of functions. Through our patented Oléo-éco-extraction technology, ingredients of high purity and yield are produced without the use of organic solvents and other pollutants, in a way that is ecologically sustainable. The resulting actives are holistically developed with a combination of several plants and oil-based extractants. Hallstar Beauty offers a diverse portfolio of these active ingredients from France, as well tailor-made products for custom initiatives.
Germano Coelho, US-based president of Hallstar Beauty, noted that Hallstar France is an exemplar of the locally-involved ingredient supplier. "Being a local actor is essential to our French operation, which consistently buys bio-certified, eco-labeled consumables from local suppliers and collaborates with local farmers. EcoVadis places great value on these practices and so does Hallstar."
