Our Commitment to Sustainability

Our Promise to You —
and the Planet

Our commitment to sustainability starts with advancing our standards for ingredients, packaging, sourcing and social responsibility. More than ever, you demand products that deliver results while improving the beautiful world around us. We promise to do our part to ensure we make more sustainable choices with you and the planet in mind. We’re learning. We’re evolving. And we look forward to continuing this journey together!

Neutrogena has teamed up with VEOCEL™, the experts in sustainable fiber technology to help us create makeup remover wipes made with VEOCEL™ fibers, 100% plant-based and home compostable in just 35 days. Get cleaner skin, with a cleaner conscience.

New Home-Compostable Makeup Removing Wipes

Leave no trace behind with our new collection of sustainable wipes made from 100% plant-based fabric.

Carefully Selected Ingredients

At Neutrogena®, safety is paramount. What we include in our products is just as important as what we exclude from them. We strive to avoid unnecessary and harsh ingredients and we prioritize ingredients that are not only safe for your skin, but also safe for the planet, throughout the lifecycle of our products. We are committed to ingredient transparency so you can make informed decisions for your skin health.

Committed to Your Health

Beauty is only skin deep, but we care about your whole self and are committed to helping you live a healthier life. We’ll use the power of our Neutrogena® brand to educate and encourage everyday healthy habits and address skincare concerns.

As the #1 leader in suncare, we are working to redefine the standard of care in sun protection. We are focused on driving critical behavior change and sun protection awareness to address preventable skin cancers by committing to leading a generational shift in sun safety, awareness and behavior.

New Products, Less Waste

Starting in 2022, Neutrogena® is launching new packaging made with 30% post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic as part of our NEW Skin Balancing collection. We are also launching our first 100% plant-based fiber, home-compostable cleansing wipe as part of the line as well.

But, this is just the beginning. We are committed to increasing the percentage of PCR used in our packaging over the next few years. And starting in 2021, we will begin transitioning our entire Makeup Remover Wipes portfolio to a 100% plant-based fabric and exploring opportunities for fully recyclable packaging.

Our dedicated team is also working on innovations that will bring to market alternatives that reduce unnecessary plastic waste and carbon emissions. Be on the lookout for refills and single-dose products soon – it’s all part of our journey.

Easier Recycling

Today nearly 75% of Neutrogena bottles* are recyclable. Starting, in 2021 we will be rolling out innovations that improve the recyclability of the other packaging in our portfolio.

We’re going to make it even easier for you to use and properly dispose of Neutrogena® products. Just look for the How2Recycle® label on our products and product pages to learn how to properly recycle or dispose of product packaging.

Our Packaging Sustainability Goals

We are committed to a healthier planet for all. We promise to raise our packaging standards to reduce waste and minimize the carbon footprint of our products. In partnership with our suppliers, we will develop new innovations that reduce plastic and packaging materials.

We are setting our goals high, and we are just getting started.
