IFF-LMR, a subsidiary of International Flavors & Fragrances is gunning to become an industry leader on the vegan front. The company now boasts a portfolio of 90 natural extracts that are certified vegan by EVE (Expertise Vegan Europe) standards. The certified extracts include the trademarked Rose Essential, Rose Ultimate, Blackcurrant Buds Absolute, Ylang Oil Complete, Vetiver Oil Haiti, Patchouli Oil Indonesia, and Geranium Heart Oil, among many others.
“Our people are passionate about creating the finest ingredients and together, we are committed to delivering premium, 100 percent pure and natural extracts,” said Bertrand de Preville, General Manager, IFF-LMR. “We believe in transparency, environmental management and sustainable development. This certification of 90 extracts is in line with IFF-LMR’s continuous dedication to our planet, people, plants and animals.”
The EVE Vegan label was selected because it is considered one of the most rigorous and complete in the industry. Its standard requires that ingredients, technical agents and packaging contain nothing of animal origin or tested on animals. Certification is recognized worldwide and therefore guarantees that IFF-LMR ingredients respect the essential principles of veganism according to international criteria.
