At Àuria Perfumes, we create fragrances for third parties with the highest quality standards, designing distinctive products that enhance brand value and provide well-being to consumers. Currently, the production of consumer goods must adopt new approaches and more stringent standards to reduce their environmental footprint, contributing to creating a cleaner and safer planet. This is the goal of the European Green Deal, an initiative proposed by the European Union to address climate change and promote environmental and economic sustainability. At Àuria Perfumes, we are prepared to undergo sustainable transformation.

 

Key Points of the European Green Deal

 

The European Green Deal will implement a series of policies and measures designed to make the European economy more sustainable, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote the use of renewable energies, improve energy efficiency, protect biodiversity, and facilitate a transition to a green economy.

 

Regarding the perfumery industry, manufacturers must adhere to new regulations and stricter environmental policies, which involves adapting production processes to reduce environmental impact and carbon emissions.

IFRA (International Fragrance Association) is the organization responsible for representing the fragrance industry and ensuring the safety, responsibility, and safe use of ingredients in fragrances. Its standards establish good practices for the effective management and evaluation of fragrant substances by the industry. The goal: to guarantee the safety and well-being of consumers, a premise to which Àuria Perfumes is firmly committed.

 

The latest update of the IFRA standards (51st Amendment) introduces 51 new fragrance ingredient standards that manufacturers must manage to ensure that our products comply with restrictions throughout the supply chain. In total, we must consider 81 allergens.

 

For example, some of the substances included as allergens in the Regulation and that we must control are lemon and citrus peel oil, lemongrass oil, eucalyptus oil, lavender oil or extract, peppermint oil, and spearmint leaf oil, among others.

 

What dates should we consider to comply with the Regulation? Since the publication of Regulation EU 2023/1545 in July 2023, we have deadlines to adapt: until July 30, 2024, for prohibited ingredients in existing creations, until March 30, 2024, to comply with restrictions or specifications in the use of ingredients in new creations, and until October 2025 for existing creations.

As manufacturers of third-party perfumes, our Full Service model operates on research and development focused on optimizing efficiency and sustainability. Consequently, we have invested in our facilities to advance the automation of the production line more efficiently, and for over a decade, we have been working with environmental management systems certified according to ISO 14001 standards. Additionally, we hold certification under the European EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) regulation.

 

“The sustainability principles guiding fragrance production at Àuria Perfumes reflect a comprehensive approach to social and environmental responsibility, and we are committed to this goal throughout the manufacturing process,” states Albert Piñol, the company’s CEO.

 

Efforts have been redoubled in the past year to reduce carbon footprint and promote sustainability throughout the supply chain with ecological and social criteria. To achieve this, the company collaborates with suppliers who source raw materials sustainably.

 

“We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and we have prioritized local producers to minimize the impact associated with material transportation. Additionally, we assess the operational protocols of our suppliers to ensure they adhere to sustainable practices,” explains Piñol.

 

Àuria Perfumes holds certifications in ISO 9001, ISO 14001, GMP, and Cosmos, standards that guarantee the safety and quality of the products it produces and support its commitment to environmental and social sustainability.
