Charity line. Neftis Laboratorios has a charity cosmetics line that includes the production of a shower gel which we offer to non-profit organisations.
Toy and book donations. Every year around Christmas time, we set up drop-off points at our facilities for toys and books, which we send to charitable organisations.
Food donations. We have an agreement with a charity in Barcelona, where we send food donations.
