A world that is open to differences is a more inclusive and a more tolerant world, as well as one that respects nature.

When Jean Paul Gaultier Parfums makes a promise, it does so in a voluntary, simple and committed manner. No tricks, no gimmicks.

Whether it concerns fragrance ingredients, packaging design or the choice of raw materials, step by step Jean Paul Gaultier Parfums is making changes to ensure a balanced and rational use of resources and materials.



Since 2022, JPG has been moving toward the use of more natural ingredients. What this means is that new product formulations now contain 90% ingredients of a natural origin. Moreover, we have set higher standards than those required by law. In fact, although the EU has already banned the use of over 1,300 ingredients in cosmetics, we have gone a step further and no longer use certain ingredients suspected of having a negative impact on human health and the environment.



Economical and efficient, fragrance refills are a no-brainer. In 2021, Scandal pour Homme was the first of our men’s fragrances to come with a refillable bottle. In 2023, Divine completed our range of refillable fragrances. Our eco-designed refills not only save money but glass, plastic and much more too. But surely it’s impossible to design a fragrance that respects the environment? Impossible is not a word you will find in Gaultier’s vocabulary!



JPG Parfums is reducing the impact of its packaging by prioritising eco-designs, and favouring the use of recyclable materials and cardboard. Our gift sets no longer contain any plastic and only use FSC-certified* cardboard (Forest Stewardship Council). The size of our packaging has been reduced as far as possible to contain only the bare minimum, i.e. the products and their protective elements.

The printed motifs on the gift sets, inspired by JPG iconic designs, use eco-friendly ink that contains no polluting or disputed substances. Our fragrance packaging is only made from FSC-certified* (Forest Stewardship Council) cardboard and 100% recyclable cellophane in France. This will be extended to Europe by 2025.

Plastic product containers (used for shower gels, sprays, mists, lotions, etc.) will be progressively made up of 50% recyclable plastic. These alternatives will be gradually rolled out to all our new ranges and best sellers.



From day one, we were keen to limit the impact of packaging on all our orders, which is why they are shipped in a fully eco-designed, FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) cardboard box. To avoid the excessive use of paper, all documents and order forms are printed on both sides and are attached with a simple paper-clip. The Gaultier cotton tote bag can be used time and time again.

This attractive, hard-wearing carry-all goes where you go, whatever the occasion.

Reusing, re-purposing and upcycling is part of Gaultier’s DNA. JP’s ethos is firmly rooted in the art of transformation. Turning the iconic cans into reusable everyday items or unique one-off creations — a little single-mindedness was key! Re-purposing and upcycling Gaultier cans while also having fun is approach.


At JPG, we take a responsible, progressive and pragmatic approach reflecting the actions and initiatives undertaken by Puig to whom we belong. 

“We are committed to being one of the most respected groups in our sector when it comes to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. That is why in 2021 we launched our new 2030 ESG Agenda that sets out our roadmap for the coming years, and which includes a number of challenging and ambitious targets in these three key areas. Our goal is to continue to act as responsibly as possible in order to contribute to building a better world — this will be our legacy. And a commitment that we continue to actively pursue.”

Marc Puig, Chair and CEO.

Puig’s 2030 ESG Agenda is closely aligned with the most important international standards, and is built around two key commitments:

  • Contributing to limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2030
  • Achieving net zero emissions by 2050

Our approach is based on the identification of five tangible areas that have the greatest impact on the planet, people and development (see pictograms).
