Sustainable Production

At Susanne Kaufmann we are committed to leaving a lighter footprint on the planet. From responsibly sourced ingredients to Susanne’s dedication to sustainable manufacturing and the introduction of intelligent refillable packaging, our focus will always be on how we can work in harmony with nature. Every product is developed in-house at our eco-production facility so we can ensure its manufacture is environmentally friendly. We care about every step of the manufacturing process, which means we seek out the latest sustainable technologies to ensure our products meet our own exacting standards before they reach you.

"Sustainability is an ongoing journey. We will continue to always champion regional production, sustainable manufacturing processes and packaging, and the sourcing of local partners. These are core values of our brand. It means everything to us, that our impact on the environment be as small as possible and we see it our obligation to strive for a lighter footprint on our earth."

Production

Our dedication to sustainable manufacturing is a hallmark of the Susanne Kaufmann brand and we have taken a truly modern approach to the production of our products. Our main production facility, which has been in operation for over 20 years, runs completely on solar, thermal and green electricity sources, some of which are unique to Susanne Kaufmann.

Our most recent development to sustainable production here is a state-of-the-art, solar powered, high-capacity emulsion and gel mixing unit. This unique machine utilises thermal energy, 100% of which is obtained from the in-house solar system. Everything is then recycled, ensuring no energy is wasted: once the heating curve has been reached, the residual heat is fed back into underground pipes and stored for the next production.

All other mixers in the facility are powered ecologically. The motors for these machines are powered with a combination of energy sourced from the in-house photovoltaic system and certified green electricity. Our production house is committed to using renewable energy sources, a philosophy that has been at the heart of its work since the very beginning. 

Our sustainability philosophy also extends to our products. The water we source for our products comes from our producer‘s own unique spring in the Bregenzerwald, which is filtered through a special water treatment system that cleans, energises and mineralises the water.

"For me, terms like “clean” and “natural” go much further than the high-quality, natural, and effective ingredients. It should also encompass an environmentally friendly production, sustainable packaging innovation and manufacturing processes, and a deep respect for nature and people."

A Dynamic Partner

Since the brand’s creation in 2003, we have partnered with local innovator Ingo Metzler for our production and manufacturing needs. Metzler is a true pioneer in natural and organic production and our close partnership means we understand the manufacturing process and why each ingredient is included, enabling us to continuously innovate so that our products continue to perform.

This unique facility is still our main production house, located in the Bregenz Forest, surrounded by nature. In keeping with our commitment to reduce transportation emissions and support regional production, it is located just 15 minutes away from our headquarters in Bezau, Austria.

“The regional production, the sourcing of local partners and the longstanding co-operation with our suppliers gives us a big lead when it comes to sustainability and the implementation of our principles. The producers and the suppliers have grown with us and we have developed together. Only in this way can we implement the latest scientific ingredients findings and make our production and packaging more ecological.” Susanne Kaufmann
