Our Commitment

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of the people we love. We’re like you that way. And we’re relentless about it. That’s why we make sure our products meet or exceed applicable regulations wherever they’re sold. We’re all about earning the trust of millions of consumers around the world. And we’ve been doing it for over 100 years.

A tireless passion for product safety


Good enough is not enough.

We not only follow individual country regulations, but also look to incorporate the best thinking and practices from top authorities for baby and personal care products around the world.

Safety never ends.

Safety doesn’t end with placing the products on the shelf. Our experts are continuously monitoring and adjusting the process based on the latest research, guidance, regulations, and customer and consumer feedback.

Safety starts with ingredients.

We set a high bar for using ingredients. Our ingredients are screened for quality, manufacturing process, government regulations, published research, and our own internal ingredient safety databases.

Science isn’t set in stone.

Innovation is ongoing and as a result, we continually check the latest data on our ingredients. When necessary, we update our products to make sure they are still safe.

Safety goes beyond the ingredient list.

It’s also a matter of how our ingredients are used, our manufacturing safeguards, how the products are used, and testing requirements for our products.

Human health and the health of our planet are forever linked.

Our sustainability efforts help us create products and packaging that are good for people and better for the planet.

The well-being of animals matters.

We do not conduct animal testing in the research or development of our cosmetic products. We believe our cosmetic products can be validated as safe and effective without compromising animal welfare, but some countries still require animal testing data to meet their own regulatory requirements. As part of our ongoing commitment over the last 30 years, we continue to advance non-animal testing methods and support efforts to eliminate the testing of cosmetic products or ingredients on animals globally.

We alone shouldn’t be the last word on safety.

That’s why we also seek the guidance of healthcare providers, safety professionals, and third party experts to help ensure the safety of our products.
