During their development, Aesop products undergo a series of rigorous and stringent tests to evaluate their safety, stability and efficacy. These tests are repeated a number of times in order to fully validate each formulation prior to launch.
All products are assessed for safety during our product development process using cumulative irritancy testing on human volunteers.
Before any product is released to the public, the formulation must pass a Product Safety Assessment and Toxicological review, conducted by an independent, qualified agency. This involves the consideration of a formula both as a whole and in terms of its individual ingredients. These are extremely detailed and thorough assessments which take a great deal of time to complete and are based on an assessor’s experiential knowledge as well as industry standards.
Neither our products nor the ingredients they contain have been tested on animals.
