A lot of experience with PR and marketing texts in this field, including for a large French cosmetics brand (over 285K words). This concerns product descriptions, instructions for use, tips and tricks etc. for packaging, websites and newsletters, but also internal communication. For example:

Environmental aspects: eco design of packaging, natural products, parabens, palm oil, mineral oils, phtalates, silicones, animal testing, etc.;
