Have you ever wondered what sustainable product labels mean? There are many sustainable product labels, and it can be confusing to know which products are sustainable.

This article is designed to help you understand sustainable product labels so that you can recognise sustainable products at the supermarket or in other retail situations.

There are three key factors that contribute to sustainable product labelling. These are sustainable formulations, sustainable manufacturing processes and sustainable packaging.

For example, sustainable formulas may include plant-based oils instead of petrol-derived mineral oils, sustainable fragrances in place of synthetic fragrances, sustainable preservatives instead of parabens, sustainable colourants made from clay or fruit extracts.

Sustainable formulations are sustainable because they use sustainable manufacturing processes. Sustainable manufacturing processes reduce energy consumption, air and water pollution and waste production.
