Product safety and the environment

How do we choose our ingredients?

Our ingredient standards are determined by three key factors: laws and regulations, our own internal safety assessments, and changing consumer preferences.

Safety and Environmental Sciences

The scientists at Unilever’s Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC) play a key role in ensuring that our products are safe and environmentally sustainable.
