Products Safety Initiatives
At UniCharm, to ensure your safety when using products that come into direct contact with your skin, we conduct checks based on basic regulations for quality control in all processes, from material procurement, to product development, manufacturing, sales and disposal.
At the material procurement stage, we establish guidelines to prevent contamination by chemical substances which have an impact on human health and the environment (*1), and a specialized department confirms the toxicity and legal compliance of chemical substances (*2). At development of products stage, we establish “gate” operations through safety evaluation committees (*5) and engage in risk assessment with consideration to actual use conditions, disposal methods, etc (*3).
In addition, we implement product use tests (*4) with products that use the safety-checked materials.
UniCharm does not conduct experiments involving animals for its safety checks, including outsourced testing, nor will we in the future.
