Johnson & Johnson is committed both to the science of safety and to the art of creating products that are gentle on people and the environment. Over the years you’ve told us that you want to hear more from us about our ingredients and how we ensure the safety of our products. In 2012 we created and launched a website where consumers can view our ingredient policies and learn about the rigorous scientific standards of our five-level safety assurance process. The website, Our Safety and Care Commitment, is dedicated to helping consumers better understand how we ensure the safety of beauty and baby care products, and the ingredients that go into them.
Our Safety and Care Commitment means that our products are supported by science, recommended by health care professionals and trusted by people around the world. Our principles guide everything we do in developing our beauty and baby care products, and we apply them worldwide.
The safety of our beauty and baby care products begins with our five-level assurance process, and we continually re-evaluate ingredients to be responsive to the latest scientific
developments and to your feedback. For example, because of concerns expressed by consumers, we made a global commitment in 2012 to remove a number of commonly used ingredients from our baby and beauty consumer products.
A leader in scientific research related to baby care products for more than 100 years, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies pioneered much of the research that our industry relies on. Our deep and specialized knowledge of the needs of both adult and baby skin informs the formulations and ingredients selected for our beauty and baby care products.
“As a leader in scientific research about baby care products for over 100 years, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies pioneered much of the research that our industry relies on,” says Susan Nettesheim, Vice President, Product Stewardship. “Our deep and specialized knowledge of the special needs of both adult and baby skin informs the formulations and ingredients selected for our beauty and baby care products.”
The Our Safety and Care Commitment website gives you the chance to hear directly from us about the art and the science of ingredient selection and product formulation.
“Safety is a little word but it has a big meaning for our skin, hair and baby care products,” says Susan. “Your safety is at the heart of every decision we make.”
