Our Commitment to Sustainability

Healthy skin every day

Each Sanex formula is held to the highest of standards. Our products, like deodorant for men and women and shower gel for sensitive skin, are created for daily cleansing, deodorising or moisturising, while maintaining your skin's natural healthy balance.

Our pioneering purpose

In 1984, Sanex was one of the first brands to to introduce a soap-free liquid bath and shower gel, followed by an alcohol-free deodorant. Today, we continue to innovate to bring you effective, kind skincare for the whole family.

We keep moving

We work hard to deliver dermatologically tested formulas that bring you the quality and peace of mind you deserve. We share your concerns about sustainability, and continuously develop products and packaging that reduce their impact on the environment. We keep a close eye on the entire supply chain and monitor all of our production processes.

We carefully choose the ingredients, diligently researching their origins and ensuring the effectiveness, safety and sustainability of all our products including our shower gel and deodorant. We work on decreasing the impact of our packaging by deploying recyclable packaging and using recycled materials whenever it is possible.

ALLERGENS

ENDORSED BY
DERMATOLOGISTS

We have partnered with The British Skin Foundation since 2019, to validate our research into healthy skin.

Transparent & intentional

We openly share our ingredients and processes, explaining the science behind them and partner with top dermatologists to meet rigorous safety and sustainability standards.

We work with your skin

We use only the ingredients necessary to help your skin perform at its best, and we rigorously avoid the use of allergens. And then we test our products… again, and again, and again.

Our ingredients are endorsed by dermatologists and our products, whether body wash for sensitive skin or deodorant for men, are clinically proven to support the benefit they offer. We also keenly follow the latest scientific knowledge on ingredients and take immediate action when there is doubt regarding the health or environmental impact of an ingredient or process.

No hidden secrets

All of our products, whether a shower cream or antiperspirant, are designed to help your skin restore its natural pH balance. To minimise allergic reactions, our strict fragrance policy reduces the risk of irritation whilst gently cleansing and caring for even the most delicate skin.

Strong criteria, gentle care

The strict standards we apply to all of our products ensure that they are kind, safe, and work in harmony with all skin types. Our fragrance policy goes above and beyond European regulatory requirements.

All Sanex fragrances have very low levels of the 26 allergens that can potentially cause contact dermatitis, as identified by The European Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) of Cosmetic and Non-Food Products. We also ensure very low levels of more than 89 known skin allergens.

More than words

The Sanex Stewardship Programme helps to safeguard our planet’s resources by undertaking core actions that guarantee honesty and transparency in all of our ingredients, testing, packaging and product claims.

Our priorities
