The principle that our products must be safe for consumers, employees, and the environment is paramount within our industry. It guides our selection of raw materials, product design, manufacturing, consumer communications and considerations relevant to the disposal of our products.
- Raw materials are rigorously evaluated with the help of specialised laboratories for toxicological evaluation, skin compatibility (ability to induce allergy/irritation), stability and ageing tests;
- During product design, product integrity tests are undertaken to simulate in-use conditions where relevant;
- Finished products undergo inspection for absence of contamination and microbiological safety is ensured by quality assurance systems;
- Manufacturers carry out in-use testing to ensure dermatological compatibility.
