Economic performance

must be paired with social and environmental progress

This ambitious objective enables us to pursue our development in a responsible manner which surpasses pure financial considerations. At the same time, our priority remains fulfilling customer satisfaction by supplying products destined to be widely consumed, and allowing our employees to participate actively in a "responsabile-citizen" attitude, which we all hope will transcend future generations.

Sustainability

The only way forward

Inspiration over Competition

Our choice has been to privilege inspiration over competition for a stronger community and a healthier way to do business

Environmental impact

Reducing and minimising the environmental impact at all levels of the life cycle of the products manufactured at our factory is our priority

Our factory was built using sustainable materials, ensuring excellent insulation thus reducing energy consumption. The roof boasts more than 500 solar panels producing over 50% of the factory's energy needs while reducing carbon emissions. The remaining 50% is supplied by a "green" energy provider. The site is also connected to the new industrial water collection network, with a purification station just a few steps away. Rainwater is harvested, stored and recycled for sanitary use and in a closed circuit for cooling production vessels. When selecting packaging materials, priority is given to those which are recyclable.

Labo Oily products include a wide pallet of solutions for the many different situations that hairdressers may come across during a typical day in the salon. In particular, many Belgian wholesalers have been seduced over the years by the quality of the technical salon-use products proposed by Labo Oily, or under “own brand” as private label products.

Parfumerie Lagrange

Parfumerie Lagrange

Parfumerie Lagrange products were originally developed as far back as 1907 by Mr. Lagrange himself, a French perfumer. The trade name has been carried on through the generations, first via Laboratoire Prunières, which was taken over by Codibel 25 years ago, and now by Codibel. The current range still includes original formulations from Mr Lagrange, in particular the men’s care range of perfumed hair care lotions and traditional "eaux de Colognes".

The leading products still include the famous “Lumigel” (men’s styling gel without alcohol, non-greasy), and the current market-winner “yellow gel” in Kursaal’s product range was inspired by Mr. Duchateau’s own yellow gel.
