On which sources does Yuka base its analyses ? 👩‍🔬

Ophélia Updated by Ophélia

The analysis of cosmetics is based on the latest scientific research on each of the ingredients. As a precautionary measure, as soon as an ingredient is seen as controversial, a penalty is applied to it.

Yuka relies on numerous sources for its evaluations:

1) The opinions of official organizations, such as SCCS (European Scientific Committee for Consumer Safety), ANSES (French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety), ANSM (French Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products), CNRS (French Center for Scientific Research), and IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer).

2) Independent scientific research

3) International scientific databases (SIN List, TEDX List, Skin Deep, etc.)

For each ingredient to which a risk level is assigned, the list of sources that led to this assessment is displayed in the application below the ingredient.
