The fixed Swiss reference is also a statement for the Swiss economy. For the Corona crisis in particular is and emblem of what is possible with regional cohesion and innovation. The best example was the shortage of disinfectants. In short, Tal teamed up with a contract manufacturer, a local brewery and a local packaging manufacturer, and whiskey was turned into much-needed disinfectant, which was made available primarily to regional companies and hospital suppliers.
This example illustrates that living Swiss values not only leads to success, but also to greater sustainability.
High quality raw materials from Switzerland.
Tal uses only pure and high-quality raw materials with targeted plant power from Graubünden. For example, with the symbol of the Swiss Alps, the edelweiss. It is particularly resistant and its ingredients are excellent as radical scavengers and for cell protection. Some of the edelweiss extracts used come from a field high above the tranquil Graubünden village of Savognin.
Other plants used for Tal such as horsetail, anise, pine needle, arnica and marigolds are also "Made in Switzerland". Just like the pure mountain spring water used for the products.
Tal's products are one thing above all: an effective homage to the homeland! The credo: As much skin-friendly nature as possible, no unnecessary additives.
Step by step into a sustainable(r) future
Standing still is a step backwards. Tal is therefore continuously working on the further development of its products and looking for innovative solutions in packaging. According to SwissRecycling, the Swiss consumed 125 kilograms of plastic per capita and year in 2019. Plastic waste is a major burden on nature and the environment. For cosmetic products in particular, plastics have their advantages, for example in terms of transport, storage and shelf life. And yet it is the duty of every cosmetics company to design products that are fairer, more resource-friendly, and even more natural. Even more so when it comes to packaging.
Tal is in constant contact with suppliers in order to identify and respond to the latest trends in packaging materials. For the sake of the product, for the sake of the consumer, for the sake of the environment. The latest hand cream in the Tal range, Tal Nature, for example, is made of a disposable material that is 98% recyclable.
Further improvements in packaging will follow. And extensive tests will clarify whether, for example, a tube made of paper or chalk could mean the exit away from the plastic one-way street - with the same product quality and shelf life.
