HLM healthy practices

Maintain healthy practice

We believe in promoting a culture of integrity, ethics and transparency to build trust and create meaningful, long-term value.

Whether for people, business partners or our planet, our Kenvue Values guide how we treat our people, innovate, conduct business and design our products. We’re committed to continually earning a place for our products in consumers’ hearts and homes, and we do this by delivering safe, effective products that support healthy people and planet.

Sustainable product innovation

Through innovation, we aim to improve the environmental performance of our products, minimizing the impact our products have on every aspect of our global value chain throughout their lifecycle. Our new Sustainable Innovation Profiler, an eco-design tool, will measure progress against our goals by guiding how new products deliver against our Healthy Lives Mission commitments, future-proofing products by flagging ingredient concerns, and promoting the adoption of sustainable alternative raw materials.

Our goals & commitments:

  • 75% of new product development,1 using eco-design scientific principles,2 will have an improved environmental performance3 by 20304

What gets measured

Kenvue has evolved our patented Global Aquatic Ingredient Assessment™ (GAIA) to encompass modern sustainability criteria. Our new Sustainable Innovation Profiler follows International Organization of Standardization methods for life cycle assessment.

Meeting rigorous eco standards 

Johnson’s® and Aveeno® baby products have been certified by UL ECOLOGO for reduced environmental impact. ECOLOGO certifications are voluntary, multi-attribute, life-cycle-based environmental certifications that indicate a product has undergone rigorous scientific testing. Learn more.

Breakthrough products with less waste

Neutrogena® Gentle Foaming Cleanser is made of only seven ingredients, and is free from fragrances, parabens, phthalates, alcohols, mineral oil and soap. Just one powder concentrate in tap water creates a luxurious foam cleanser and is equal to a regular full-size foaming face wash.

Product transparency

We know consumers care about the ingredients in the products they choose. At Kenvue, we also care fiercely about the ingredients we select which is why we are on a journey to provide more transparency and enable consumers to make informed purchase choices.

Our goals & commitments:

  • Provide greater product transparency, beginning with our ingredients

Ingredients are everything

Using safe, healthy ingredients is especially important when creating products that are part of people’s everyday routines. All our ingredients are carefully selected and must pass stringent safety and quality requirements. We ensure that their quality, purity and manufacturing meet government regulations, industry standards and our strict internal policies. Our sourcing and quality assessment teams thoroughly vet the suppliers we use and only accept vendors that meet our rigorous standards. Learn more about our policies.

Partnering for impact

We’ve been a member of the EcoBeautyScore Consortium since 2021 and, as an early supporter of this initiative, we are proud of our contributions to create an industry standard environmental impact scoring system for cosmetics and personal care products. This work is important because it will enable consumers to compare product scores within a specific category and make informed buying choices.

In line with our Kenvue values, we are committed to building trust with our consumers, customers and business partners by holding ourselves accountable to the highest ethical standards in everything that we do. We operate with openness, maintain business and workplace integrity, and contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.

1. New product development includes: improvement of existing product, extension of product line, or new-to-the-market in each calendar year.
2. Eco-design scientific principles are defined as the 16 life cycle analysis (LCA) impact categories aligned with product environmental footprint (PEF) methodology.
3. Where regulation allows, improved environmental performance is defined as a 10% combined overall improvement against 16 life cycle analysis (LCA) impact categories defined according to product environmental footprint (PEF) methodology, with no regression compared to benchmark product; and must include a minimum 10% reduction in carbon impact.
4. We aim to meet the goal by end of fiscal year and publish the year after.
