Regulations, Stories & Commitments

AS THE EXPERTS SAY



"Our potent botanicals are grown in
Morocco, in the Atlas Mountains.
We use a very precise extraction process
for no compromise on ingredients
efficacy and on the environment."

Scientific Director

 

THE COSMETIC PRODUCTS REGULATION

We respect the strictest regulations in the world and strive to go beyond whenever it is possible.

Compliance with the strictest cosmetic regulation in the world.

We always comply with the European cosmetics regulation, which is the strictest, wherever we market our products.

This regulation evolves on a regular basis to take into account scientific progress. Decisions are taken by the health authorities of the Member States based on proposals from the European Commission. They rely on the opinion of independent European experts who gather within the European Scientific Committee for Consumer Safety (SCCS).

Regarding our product communications for example, any of them whether they are made on behalf of YSL Beauté, directly or by third parties, complies with local laws, self-regulation codes of good practices, and the Group’s principles and Code of Ethics.

 

GO BEYOND THE REGULATION
WHENEVER IT IS POSSIBLE

The Group endeavour is to go beyond the regulation and answer to our consumers’ expectations and the evolutions we observe.

There are certain allowed ingredients that we chose not to use as they do not meet our own criteria. We also decided not to use diethylphtalate or triclosan and to reduce the use of para-phenylene-diamine in our hair dye products. All these initiatives were taken while the international regulations allowed these substances to be used.

Furthermore, in January 2014, we committed to eliminate all plastic microbeads from our rinse-off products.
