Sustainability Policy

Le Joyau d’Olive has since its inception incorporated sustainable practices in the aim of guiding the way to a greener future. The raison d’être of the company is to promote natural biodegradable cosmetics. That said, it was plainly obvious to the founder of the company to structure everything around the raison d’être in a symbiotic manner.

On the process side, Le Joyau d’Olive operates on solar power and uses EVs to locally distribute. Its processes generate no waste and its products are biodegradable. The company privileges small and local olive and essential oil producers in order to limit transportation and support small businesses.

Within the environmental sphere, Le Joyau d’Olive aims at reintroducing natural biodegradable cosmetics into our cities such as our ancestors knew them. For every soap, Le Joyau d’Olive places on the market, it hopes to replace a synthetic one, that would one way or another end up in our waterways. Collectively speaking, a society dumps a lot of dissolved soap in its waterways. Le Joyau d’Olive hopes to reverse that trend, specifically in cities that don’t have waste water treatment infrastructures.

On social dimension, Le Joyau d’Olive employs people of all ages, stay at home mums, or anyone living in the vicinity of its workshop. Everyone works at their own pace and schedules to ensure a good life-work balance. The company also offer the best in class work compensation benefits that are at least double to triple what local laws impose. The company acts as a stepping stone as it encourages its employees to learn the craft and venture off on their own when they feel ready to do so. Le Joyau d’Olive is open to financially invest in these people when it comes to opening their own workshops across Lebanon.

On the cultural dimension, the company’s aim is to revive the ancestral craft of soap making and ensure that the next generation wakes up one day to discover what an ancestral soap looks and feels like. In Lebanon, back in 1950’s, every family used to produce its own soaps at home. Today, only a handful of artisans are still in the market and their average age is around 60 to 70 years old. If Lebanon is to continue with that trend, humanity is sure to lose a heritage that is 4,000 years old within the next decade or so. That said, Le Joyau d’Olive, is working to revive the ancestral craft and invites people in to teach them a craft for life. Hopefully within the next couple years, enough youngsters will take over the craft and carry it to the next generations. 

Le Joyau d’Olive has kept its promise so far, and is inviting you to join its meaningful journey.
