Test and quality
Do Diego dalla Palma products contain nickel or other heavy metals?
Heavy metals (nickel, lead, mercury, arsenic, cobalt, chromium) are substances whose voluntary inclusion in cosmetic products is prohibited by Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 of 2009. However, since these are ubiquitous substances and are widely dispersed in the environment, it is impossible to completely exclude impurities in cosmetics (whereas impurities are usually in the order of ppm or less, where 1 ppm - or parts per million - is equivalent to 0.0001%). The same Regulation on cosmetics prohibits their voluntary inclusion, but tolerates "the presence of a small quantity provided that such presence is technically unavoidable". That said, in order to avoid or minimise accidental contamination by heavy metals, Diego dalla Palma carefully selects the raw materials based on their degree of purity and strictly controls the production process. Diego dalla Palma also adds substances in their products during the formulation stage capable of retaining accidental impurities of heavy metals in order not to release them on the skin and monitors with specific tests the possible presence of impurities in its products in order to ensure levels below the critical threshold that may trigger allergic reactions in susceptible people, as set out by the various guidelines.
Are Diego dalla Palma products tested on animals?
In compliance with the existing European legislation on cosmetic products, which prohibits animal testing for this category, the cosmetic products of Diego dalla Palma are not tested on animals. Diego dalla Palma also declares that, even before the entry into force of this ban, the company had never tested, nor contracted to third parties tests on animals relating to its cosmetics, neither as finished products, nor as prototypes of the finished products, nor as their raw materials, whether as individual components or in mixtures.
Does the formula of Diego dalla Palma nail polishes contain phthalates?
Diego dalla Palma nail polishes have a “5 free” formula: they do not contain phthalates (DIBUTYL PHTHALATE or DBP), formaldehyde and/or its resins, toluene and camphor.
What have you implemented to embrace eco-sustainability?
Diego dalla Palma Milano has long been committed to a company policy of sustainable development, eco-efficiency and eco-compatibility, aimed at the continuous improvement of production standards and at raising the awareness of all staff in terms of environmental protection. In particular, since 2013 the company has adhered to the "Responsible Care" programme aimed at the Chemical Industry - which includes the cosmetic industry. The “Responsible Care” programma is dedicated to promoting Sustainable Development, according to values and behaviours oriented towards Safety, Health, Environmental Protection and committed to communicating the results, within a framework of continuous improvement of the performances
We have been committed for years to making more responsible choices related to the purchases and the management of the flows, through the conscious use of water, energy from renewable sources, raw materials and more eco-compatible materials, coming from traceable crops, responsible management, fair trade, which respect the local populations and the biodiversity of the harvesting locations. We want to carefully select our labour suppliers, favouring those committed to the re-employment of disadvantaged people.
In general, starting from the production process, we prefer to use raw materials that come from safe crops, we opt for vegetable oils and natural active ingredients certified according to recognised international standards, we avoid the use of natural substances that come from endangered species, we minimise the use of harmful chemicals and we prefer the use of energy from renewable sources such as solar energy.
Is your packaging sustainable and recyclable?
The company is strongly committed to choosing packaging that does not affect the protection of natural ecosystems.
IThe packaging components and the paper are chosen based on their environmental and social quality or their origin from a responsible management of the sources. Specifically, the paper used for the packaging of our products and for our paper advertising materials has the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification.
We are also working to decrease the weight and volume of our products, preferring boxes without internal materials and lighter primary packaging. We have reduced the number of products that need to be rinsed in the shower and we study, day after day, new textures that are easy to remove.
