Code of Conduct
S. B. Svatos’s Code of Conduct is communicated to and signed by all our supply chain partners.

In addition, the Code of Conduct draws from the ETI Base Code, recognized as one of the leading frameworks in the global beauty industry.
S. B. Svatos is conscious that certain employment conditions deeper in supply chains may represent a more significant risk of forced and trafficked labour. Our partners are only permitted to use subcontractors where prior written consent has been provided and the same monitoring process is applied to subcontractors. We ask that all partners confirm that any raw materials used in S. B. Svatos Products are derived from sources that are compliant with local employment regulations.
