Corporate Social Responsibility

These days, customers expect more, demanding higher ethical standards from the companies they buy from. Driving a sustainable, responsible and ethical business is an ethos we choose to follow – not one we feel obliged to - and we have created a culture here at Stephenson Group where the whole team is encouraged to maintain published standards but to also seek out new areas for improvement.

We undertake a variety of strategies to embed CSR and sustainability throughout our R&D, manufacturing process and supply chain; which means looking at ways to prevent waste, be energy efficient and optimising ambient or cold-processing. In fact, most of our soap bases and cosmetic ingredients facilitate eco-formulating for the personal care manufacturer.

We have a growing portfolio of RSPO certified soap bases, for more information you can view our RSPO profile and review our progress at www.rspo.org
