Abihpec – Cosmetics, Perfumery and Personal Care Brazilian Association – has created a project that foresees to privilege suppliers and services providers which are compromised with sustainability: Apice.

The program is about  qualification applied by a specialized and certified organ (in this case the Brazil SGS), which is responsible for the evaluation and inspection of raw material suppliers, packaging, residues disposal services and outsourced producers on the subjects occupational health , work insurance and socio environmental responsibility.

“The cosmetic, perfumery and personal hygiene is very heterogeneous on its demands and we see that the patterns vary according to the company and the kind of services rendering”, declares Joao Carlos Basilio da Silva, Abihpec´s president.

Certainly the measure will promote a positive image of the sector, privileging the companies compromised with a sustainable future.
