L'ORÉAL PARIS INTERNATIONAL BOARD OF DERMATOLOGISTS
They validate our most expert products through:
• Thorough review of test protocols and results
• Comprehensive ingredient screening for efficacy, safety and tolerance
DR. OPHELA CONSULTANT DERMATOLOGIST MEMBER OF L'ORÉAL PARIS INTERNATIONAL BOARD OF DERMATOLOGISTS
"It goes without saying that I want skincare to deliver on what says it can do. For this reason I am passionate about working as part of the L’Oreal Paris International Board of Dermatologists. I get to review the scientific data and clinical studies on products. Then I get the opportunity to try them. The L’Oreal Paris International Board of Dermatologists then meet to discuss and validate individual products based on the data and our experience of using the products. It’s incredible to be part of such an international and vigorous review process for the L’Oreal Paris products, prior to them hitting the shelves."

To ensure our active ingredients are safe for all skin types, we apply our formulas on real skin 600 times (before it goes anywhere near yours).
Our commitment to safety does not stop there. We have also developed a remarkable platform of predictive strategies that allow us to identify new ingredients or new innovations to constantly enhance our products' safety as well as their performance. In addition to this, our practice of listening to our consumers or other stakeholders helps us to understand their concerns and to consider these also when deciding to reduce or to remove certain ingredients.
After we've tested the effectiveness of our products they're tested again independently (so we're doubly sure).
Our researchers relentlessly work to develop skincare products with better performance, integrating formulation technologies and actives with proven efficacy through clinical tests conducted by independent institutes.
L'Oréal Paris is committed to a world without animal testing. Over 30 years ago, we completely stopped testing our products on animals, years before it became the law.
We have developed a very rigorous safety evaluation procedure, and have developed ground-breaking testing alternatives like Episkin, which is created with human skin cells to mimic real skin. Certain health authorities may nevertheless decide to conduct animal tests themselves for certain cosmetic products, as 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 recognised, and permit the cosmetic regulation to evolve towards a total and definite elimination of animal testing.
