At Sebapharma, reducing water consumption throughout the entire production process, as well as the company is an important aspect of sustainability. Because water is the new gold! This valuable resource has become scarce in many areas, yet it is the most important component of our entire ecosystem. Using water sparingly, reprocessing it during the production process by means of modern technology, and continuously reducing consumption are considered an obligation by the company, which is situated directly on the banks of the River Rhine.

Purity of effluent and eliminating the use of microplastics

In the area of medicinal skin and body care, cosmetics inevitably end up in waste water through the showers and sinks of consumers. Therefore, manufacturers should take care to ensure that the water quality does not suffer as a consequence. 

For this reason, Sebapharma uses sustainable ingredients. The surfactants in the skin cleansing products and shampoos are almost 99% biodegradable and do not pollute the ground water. sebamed does not use highly controversial microplastics in its products.
