確保消費者的健康和安全一直是萊雅集團的絕對優先準則。與此同時,萊雅對支持動物福利也十分重視。

萊雅集團在其研發的支援下,已經開發出了一套非常嚴格的產品安全性評估程式。早在社會以及法規控管對動物測試提出質疑之前,萊雅已經致力於不涉及動物的產品安全性評估新方法的開發。作為這一領域的真正先驅者,萊雅自1979年就通過在實驗室中重建皮膚模型來精心研創用於替代動物測試的安全性測試。1989年,萊雅集團已完全停止通過動物來測試其產品,這比法規要求提早了14年。到今日,萊雅集團已完全停止藉由動物來測試其產品成分之作法,並且不再容忍任何例外作法。

某些衛生當局可能仍決定針對某些化妝品進行動物測試,而在中國仍是如此。萊雅超過十年以來一直是最積極致力與中國政府相關部門以及科學家們緊密合作的公司,以期通過合力讓替代性測試方法得以認可,從而推動化妝品法規向徹底取消動物測試的方向發展。正因如此,自2014年起,在中國生產和銷售的一些特定產品,如洗髮精、沐浴露或彩妝產品已不再使用動物測試。

Our consumers’ health and safety have always been an absolute priority for L’Oréal. As is the support of animal welfare.

L’Oréal has developed a very rigorous safety evaluation procedure of its products, backed by Research. Well before the question of animal testing was raised by civil society or within a regulatory framework, L’Oréal has been committed to new methods of assessing safety that don’t involve animals. A true pioneer, L'Oréal has been reconstructing human skin models in laboratories to elaborate in vitro safety tests since 1979, as an alternative to animals. In 1989, L’Oréal completely ceased testing its products on animals, thus 14 years before the regulation required so. Today, L'Oréal no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule.

Certain health authorities may nevertheless decide to conduct animal tests themselves for certain cosmetic products, as it is still the case in China. L’Oréal has been the most active company working alongside the Chinese authorities and scientists for over 10 years to have alternative testing methods recognized, and permit the cosmetic regulation to evolve towards a total and definite elimination of animal testing. Thanks to this, since 2014, certain products manufactured and sold in China like shampoo, body wash or make-up are no longer tested on animals.
