L'Oreal invites you to discover eight raw materials, selected from 1,400 plant-derived ingredients used in cosmetic products.



These raw materials are sourced through sustainable sourcing programmes.
Soya beans
The soybean oil is mostly used as a moisturizer in skincare products. The Group sources 100% of its soybean oil from Brazil, in the hinterlands of the Iguazu River, from a certified organic and fair trade source.
Aloe vera
Aloe vera is a plant known for its healing properties. L’Oréal sources an organically and fair trade certified Aloe Vera in Mexico
Olive leaves
Olive leaves are used in skincare products for their antioxydant properties. They are sourced from organically certified olive trees cultivated in France, in the Drome provençale region.
Grape seed oil
Grape seed oil is pressed in France, from fruits cultivated in Southern Europe. It is used for its moisturizing properties, particularly in makeup products.
Lemon peel
Lemon essential oil is extracted from the peel. Lemon is one of the citrus ingredients used in cosmetics, particularly in perfumes.
Shards of argan kernels
Less known than argan oil, the kernel powder, which was not used until now, has exfoliating properties that are used in personal care products. Our sustainable sourcing Argan program in Morocco helps developing the autonomy of 300 women, improving their access to healthcare and literacy.
Beech wood
By doing research on unused waste from the paper industry, L’Oréal has developed a molecule, named Proxylane, extracted from sugar beech wood and rich in antiaging properties. It was the first molecule developed by L’Oréal laboratories, based on the principles of Green chemistry.
