OLAY’S SAFETY STANDARDS
JUST LIKE YOU, OLAY TAKES SAFETY SERIOUSLY.
For more than 65 years, we’ve been on the cutting edge of both beauty and science. We continuously innovate to uphold ingredients, formulas and products to a high standard. We are transparent about our process and ingredients which is why we’ve created this page. Here, you’ll find information on our ingredients, our current safety standards, and how we make sure our products are safe before we even think about sending them to market.
A HEALTHY DOSE OF SKEPTICISM
Before any ingredient goes into our skincare, we gather the relevant safety and toxicity information on that ingredient. That means having our scientists dive deep into the current research and perform rigorous testing in our state-of-the-art P&G laboratories.
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. Globally, we follow the guidelines of groups like the European Union Commission, the World Heath Organization and the National Academy of Sciences.
We are invested not just in your skin today, but also your skin’s future.
CRAFTING THE FORMULA
If we can't guarantee a product formula is safe, this formula does not leave the lab. We will either reformulate or we’ll scrap the product all together and go back to the drawing board.
FUN FACT: We have more than 500 scientists and professionals at Olay who make sure our products meet safety and regulatory requirements around the world.
