As Green Team and Vice President of JAFRA’s Worldwide Marketing and Product Development, I am proud to share important strides that JAFRA has made on our path towards sustainability and clean beauty.

You may be wondering, ‘What is JAFRA’s Green Team?’ Our Green Team is made up of chemists, research scientists, packaging engineers, operations managers and business experts who work together towards a common goal: helping JAFRA make more eco-conscious decisions. Combining each of our unique strengths and insights, we meet regularly to push for environmentally friendly changes and cleaner beauty formulations.
Here’s a little known but important fact: we have our own dedicated manufacturing facility located at JAFRA Manufacturing in Queretaro, Mexico. Enhanced with green technology, our facility does more than produce beauty products—it gives us control over our environmental stewardship choices and socially responsible business practices.
With ever-evolving research and science, the path towards sustainability is complex, but essential to our future. We’ve already made great strides and we’re committed to doing even more. It’s with great pleasure that I present our running tally of accomplishments.
