Mandom Group's CSR KohDoh Practices

Reduce: Containers, Packaging, etc.

3R Examples: Reducing Use of Materials (Containers, Packaging, etc.)

Inner Box Reduction/Elimination

We have eliminated the inner boxes on many of our paper-related products, new products, and series products. This effort has vastly reduced the amount of paper in use.
We are working to eliminate inner boxes while paying attention to quality assurance, productivity, cost reduction, and easing environmental impact.

Reduced Resin Use in Containers

Reduced Resin Use in Containers Reduced Resin Use in Containers

With the renewal of our Lucido-L hair wax line, we redesigned the container to achieve about a 30% reduction in resin.
We also reduced the amount of resin used in our bottle packaging of Bifesta Water Cleansing Series by 8 grams per item, achieving a significant overall reduction in plastic usage.

Reductions in Formula Development (lower environmental impact of contents)

We use ingredients in formulating our products that are entirely safe for people. Also, as part of 3R design, we develop formulations that have the least impact on the environment.
