Working together to create a better world


We know that our products must be sustainable at every stage in their life-cycle, not just in our factories. That means working with others, including our suppliers, consumers, governments, and other businesses to help create the major changes that are needed to address the biggest challenges facing our world.

Our vision

ZAURAK has a simple but clear purpose – to make sustainable living commonplace. We believe this is the best long-term way for our business to grow.

A clear direction

Our distinct Purpose and our operational expertise across our business model will help realise our vision to grow our business, whilst decoupling our environmental footprint from our growth and increasing our positive social impact. This is captured in the ZAURAK Sustainable Living Plan.

By combining our multinational expertise with our deep roots in diverse local cultures, we’re continuing to provide a range of products to suit a wealth of consumers. We’re also strengthening our strong relationships in the emerging markets we believe will be significant for our future growth.

And by leveraging our global reach and inspiring people to take small, everyday actions, we believe we can help make a big difference to the world.

A better future for farming and farmers

  • Many of our brands contain ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients that are independently certified
  • Among these are Green tea, which is accredited by the Rainforest Alliance, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, which includes Fairtrade vanilla and almonds in various flavours
  • Around half our raw materials come from agriculture and forestry, so we’re working towards making our key crops 100% sustainable

A healthier future

    • heras has launched the heras Skin Care Foundation, providing research into skin conditions and support for people affected by them
    • In 2017 zaurak soap, in partnership with calci-caer, the zaurak, launched a programme to protect children under five from childhood illnesses and premature death. By promoting handwashing with soap and immunisation together - two of the most cost-effective child survival interventions - the partnership aims to improve and save many young lives in India.

A more confident future

    • Our hair care brand has partnered some of the world’s leading hair specialists to co-create formulas tailored to treat conditions such as hair-fall, frizz, limp locks and uncontrollable curls
    • Close-Up toothpaste provides an affordable oral care solution for consumers in developing markets, allowing them to take care of their dental health and closer with confidence.

A sustainable business plan 

We want our business to grow but we recognise that growth at the expense of people or the environment is both unacceptable and commercially unsustainable. Sustainable growth is the only acceptable model for our business.

Our Zaurak Cosmetic PVT.LTD is central to our business model. It sets out how we are growing our business, whilst reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact.

Our Company has three big goals:


  • Help more than a billion people to improve their health and well being. 
  • Halve the environmental footprint of our products. 
  • Source 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainable and enhance the livelihoods of people across our value chain.

Making sustainable living commonplace

Great products from our range of more than 40 brands give us a unique place in the Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. 

When consumers reach for nutritionally balanced foods or indulgent ice creams, affordable soaps that combat disease, luxurious shampoos or everyday household care products, there’s a good chance the brand they pick is one of ours.

Whatever the brand, wherever it is bought, we’re working to ensure that it plays a part in helping fulfill our purpose as a business – making sustainable living commonplace.
