Products You Can Trust. A Company You Can Believe In.
Product safety is our highest priority.
- Scientific experts not only assess every individual ingredient but also every finished product. This rigorous testing, and retesting, is performed or supervised by members of our Research and Development laboratories, including Ph.D.s and other advanced-degreed or degreed scientists in such areas as toxicology, pharmacology, microbiology, chemistry and biochemistry.
- Every product decision is based on scientific fact, not opinion. At Mary Kay Inc., we rely on proven scientific research utilizing the most advanced technologies available, and we will not use any ingredient until our testing has proven it safe and effective for use.
- Because impartial evaluation of products is vital, we conduct clinical testing in independent laboratories where volunteers use Mary Kay® products under strict supervision and evaluation by independent board-certified dermatologists and ophthalmologists.
- We also conduct extensive laboratory testing to ensure against skin irritancy and allergy, and we use state-of-the-art methods to evaluate all products to be used in the eye area.
- All skin care and cosmetic products are regulated by governmental health and safety authorities, and before any product can be offered for sale, it must pass stringent government safety requirements. As a matter of principle, Mary Kay Inc. regularly goes beyond what is required by law when it comes to product safety.
