MAKEUP MAIL: BIORE

MAKEUP MAIL, BEAUTYElizabeth NichinComment

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm back with a new post in my Makeup Mail series! This response comes from Kao USA Inc. I went to the Biore website to contact customer service regarding their products and the response I got came from Kao USA Inc., who own Biore, John Frieda, Ban, Curel, and Jergens. 

Below are screen shots of what they had to say! 

 

For reference, here are my questions:

SOURCING
1. From where (what countries) does your company source its raw ingredients? Are your sources organic and sustainable?
2. Do your products contain any ingredients derived from animals? Is any of your products vegan friendly?

PRODUCTION
1. In what country or countries are your products manufactured? Where are your company’s labs, manufacturing locations, factories, and/or assembly plants located (city and country)?
2. Are your products manufactured and assembled in different places?
3. Does your company test ingredients or finished products on animals? Does your company use a third party to conduct animal testing?
4. Is your company owned by or affiliated with any companies that test products or ingredients on animals?

LABOR
1. What efforts does your company take to ensure that fair labor practices are secured for your employees?
2. Are you able to provide a demographic breakdown of your company’s employees (gender, age, race, ethnicity)?
