Advertising Claims

A message about our advertising claims.


Animal Testing

The Estée Lauder Companies does not test on animals and we never ask others to do so on our behalf. If a regulatory body demands it for its safety or regulatory assessment, an exception can be made. Our consumers can be certain that we are committed to producing only the highest quality beauty products which meet our exacting efficacy, safety and ethical standards.



The Estée Lauder Companies is committed to providing our consumers with safe, prestige beauty products of the highest quality. Consumer safety is our top priority, which is why we are dedicated to the prevention of the illegal sale and distribution of counterfeit products.

We take a serious approach to ending counterfeit activity and work closely with global law enforcement and government agencies to shut down illegal counterfeiting operations and remove counterfeit products from the market.


Ingredient and Product Testing and Safety

Consumers around the world trust our brands to deliver the best beauty performance and to do so safely. All of us at The Estée Lauder Companies consider this our highest priority and work every day to deliver on that promise.

We work continuously to meet the standards put forth by global governmental, regulatory and scientific bodies, as well as our own exceedingly high quality and safety assurance standards.

All of the ingredients present in our products undergo a comprehensive safety review and evaluation, and we will continue to comply with regulations regarding the ingredients used in our products, ensuring our overarching commitment to product safety.


Lead in Lipstick and Other Heavy Metals

Consumer safety is a top priority at The Estée Lauder Companies and our products undergo our rigorous safety evaluation process.

Lead and other heavy metals are never added as ingredients to our products. However, these earth elements are ubiquitous and found naturally in air, water and soil. So they may also be found at extremely low amounts in some of the raw ingredients used in formulating cosmetics, such as lipsticks.



The Estée Lauder Companies committed to voluntarily remove microbeads (defined by industry and state regulations as any intentionally added, 5 mm or less, water insoluble, solid plastic particles used to exfoliate or cleanse in rinse-off personal care products) from our products by the end of our Fiscal Year 2017.

We met this commitment and no longer formulate or ship products with microbeads.


Palm Oil

We are committed to responsible sourcing of palm oil and are working with suppliers, communities and knowledgeable organizations to find sustainable solutions to palm oil sourcing.



For more than 20 years, The Estée Lauder Companies has actively supported global breast cancer research, education and medical services, helping to raise millions of dollars to eradicate this disease through its Breast Cancer Campaign.


Political Engagement

At The Estée Lauder Companies we are committed to the highest standards of professional and personal conduct.

Consistent with the commitment to be a responsible citizen in every community we serve, we conduct our relations with governments in places where we do business in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations.



Consumer safety is a top priority at The Estée Lauder Companies, and our ingredients undergo a rigorous protocol of safety evaluation.

We use a variety of approved preservatives, recognized as safe and designed to protect cosmetic products against the growth of bacteria, yeast and mold during storage and consumer use, in our products in accordance with all applicable local and international regulations.



The Estée Lauder Companies strongly believes in the importance of sun protection.

As a company, we devote extensive resources to developing innovative cosmetics, skin care and in-sun products with effective and substantiated UVA and UVB protection.

Sun protection products are regulated differently around the world. We comply with all the local and international regulations in the markets in which our products are sold.
