Step 1: Doubt from the Start: Just like you, we start with a heavy dose of skepticism.
The number one question we ask ourselves is – if this ingredient is safe to use?

Herbal Essences Safety Research

Before any ingredient Goes into our Shampoos and conditioners, we gather all the relevant safety and toxicity information on the ingredient.

If we have any doubts about an ingredients’ potential to cause you harm then we won’t use it. Period. No questions asked.

Step 2: Do Ingredient Due Diligence – Set a SAFE RANGE:

Herbal Essences Safety Data

After we look at the safety data on the ingredient, the next big question we ask is what is the safe range for the ingredient? The Safe Range defines how much of this ingredient is actually safe to use for you throughout your life.

Herbal Essences Safe Range

We work to determine a Safe Range for each and every ingredient based on a similar process many regulatory agencies and scientific groups use to ensure safety.

This includes groups like the European Union Commision, the World Heath Organization and the National Academy of Sciences.

Step 3: Determine the Entire Product Formula:

Herbal Essences Ingredient Cells

While an ingredient might be safe by itself, we also evaluate the safety of our products when we have a mixture of ingredients to confirm their use is not going to cause any unexpected skin or eye irritation.

Herbal Essences Safe Formula

If we can’t conclude the product formula is safe, it won’t make it to your shower. We will either reformulate or we won’t launch the product.

It takes a village to ensure your safety, and that’s why we have more than 500 scientists and professionals who go above and beyond to make sure our products meet all safety and regulatory requirements around the world.

Step 4: Track and monitor relentlessly.

You deserve the best – and that means we can never take our eye off of your safety. It’s our commitment to you!
