At + Farma Dorsch, we create EFFECTIVE, HEALTHY AND SUSTAINABLE cosmetics. Present and future generations are present in all our decisions.
Committed, since our very beginnings, to sustainability and ethics in business, + Farma Dorsch focuses on research and manufacturing of products that care for health and the environment.
This commitment has won several awards and recognitions, such as that of the Lifestyle 3.0 consulting firm, which awarded the Laboratories as a Spanish company that is a benchmark in sustainability for its social, economic and environmental commitment.
We use the lastest generation of active ingredients, called CLEAN INGREDIENTS. Natural, vegetable and synthetic ingredients that, based on experience, science and biotechnology ARE HEALTHY for you and the ENVIRONMENT.
We use renewable sources. Both in the starting materials and in the processes of production, use and final destination.
We have an exhaustive control of water and electricity. We do not emit fumes and we have a geothermal plant.
We avoid the unnecessary production of by-products and we are committed to biodegradability, which is one of our major commitments.
We use biodegradable microspheres in peeling and anti-cellulite products.
Preservatives authorized for natural and organic cosmetics
We transfer in a transparent way the evaluations of each of our products through efficacy tests carried out by independent experts and based on scientific documentation and experience, convinced that this new trend will lead the industry to make better cosmetics and a better world.
In this way, + Farma Dorsch has been the 1st Dermocosmetic Laboratory to have several of its products verified by EWG, an American non-profit, non-partisan organization, which is dedicated altruistically to the protection of health and the environment.
At + Farma Dorsch we develop our products in a way that respects animals. Our formulas are vegan and contain no ingredients of animal origin. In addition, we ensure that none of our suppliers conduct animal testing and we do not test our products on animals in accordance with current European cosmetic regulations. (Cruetly Free).
In 2013 the European Union banned animal testing in cosmetics. As a result no cosmetic products within the EU and UK can be tested on animals.
In addition, in the same year, common criteria were established for claims relating to cosmetic products, being prohibited to make claims that give the idea that a product presents a particular benefit when it consists of mere compliance with legislation, in order to avoid misleading consumers. In this context, advertising a product as animal cruelty free would contravene the precepts of the regulation and therefore, at + Farma Dorsch we do not claim “cruelty free”.
Nevertheless, the reality is that many cosmetic ingredients are used by other industries such as the pharmaceutical industry, which still requires animal testing. For this reason, at + Farma Dorsch we have joined the initiative to help out an end to animal testing in cosmetic products worldwide.
For years, the cosmetics industry has been leading the development and evaluation of alternative testing methods to animal testing and promoting urgent action against animal testing in Europe.
First and foremost, our commitment is to the consumer. We invest in Customer Service both at the point of sale and through technology.
Our “Clean Beauty” philosophy also promotes awareness of the products purchased, not only for their efficacy and safety in skin care, but also for the impact of their life cycle, from the extraction of the components, to production, distribution, use and final destination.
We use airless packaging to ensure maximum efficiency and hygiene while making the best use of the product.
We have minimized the use of plastic and paper by around 90% and the cardboard we use has the FSC seal, an organization dedicated to promote responsible forest management worldwide.
Most of our packaging includes Braille language.
We are members of ECOEMBES, a non-profit organization dedicated to the recovery of packaging throughout Spain. Thus encouraging recycling.
Our policy is to regularly update our formulations to the latest assessments of the organizations that determine the strictest criteria of sustainability and safety for the environment, for this reason, we are constantly improving the percentage of Clean Ingredients in our products.
We also have a clear objective in our PACKAGING. We are working to find a way to make all our packaging biodegradable without deteriorating its contents. In a near future, we want our packaging to be 100% BIODEGRADABLE.
80% of our employees are women and we are committed to the integration of people with different abilities.
Our workforce is multiethnic and we firmly believe that each worker has a special ability to develop a task and contribute their bit to the success of the company, that is why we believe in collective work where we share ideas and vision.
We invest in training, in the improvement of schedules and support the balance and compatibility of work and family life.
In 2012, Farma Dorsch developed the first specific formulation of photoprotectors for albino people, destined for the production unit of the NGO Africa Directo in Tanzania. The Community of Madrid, the Association of Dermatologists of the Ramón y Cajal Hospital and the asset manager Bestinver also participated in the project, financing the training of local surgeons to operate on skin cancer, as well as educational scholarships so that albino children could have access to jobs that did not require sun exposure.
