The manufacture of cosmetics at Shiseido starts from the careful selection of raw materials.
This is because cosmetics are applied on the skin every day.
We evaluate the safety of all ingredients and only use ingredients for which we have confirmed the safety.
These are some of the safety tests typically conducted at Shiseido:
We make efforts in developing alternative methods to animal testing and use ingredients with a higher level of safety in our products.
We collect regulatory information on ingredients from authorities in charge of cosmetics in countries around the world, and carefully select ingredients that can be used for each country.
In addition to compliance with laws regarding the protection of nature and the environment, we promote the manufacture of products with consideration for social issues. Ingredient suppliers are evaluated and selected by our unique standards, and company employees visit the production sites of especially important ingredients to check the quality assurance system.
