KEHL, Germany — ADA Cosmetics is the first and only hotel-cosmetics manufacturer whose entire product portfolio has been Cradle to Cradle Certified. Based on scientific criteria, the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard is one of the most ambitious sustainability certifications in the world.
Products that receive this award must satisfy an independent third-party assessment centre in five categories: material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship and social fairness.
“With its holistic approach, Cradle to Cradle Certified goes far beyond the criteria of other labels. In addition to ingredients and packaging materials, it also examines a company’s production processes and behavior. That is why we are very proud of this certification. It demonstrates impressively that we are on the right track and shows how much we have already achieved with our commitment to sustainability,” says Lutz Hübner, CEO of ADA Cosmetics. “There is no Planet B. That’s why we at ADA are determined to do everything in our power to minimize our environmental impact and develop our products and packaging to be safe and circular. The Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard gives us a roadmap for implementing the innovations and actions needed to achieve our ambitious goals. We hope others will follow our lead.”
ADA Cosmetics introduced the first-ever dispenser system in hotel bathrooms some 30 years ago. Back in 2018, the company participated in the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard Program for the first time, with ADA products being awarded Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze.
