Is this safe to use?

Your health and well-being is our biggest priority. All Jergens® products have been
thoroughly reviewed and tested to ensure safety when used as instructed and our

Have Jergens® Butter variants been tested on animals?

We do not conduct or commission animal testing on our products. We follow the conventions of the EU and other governmental bans on animal testing for cosmetics. Occasionally, laws and regulations require testing of materials outside of the cosmetics category. Since the 1980’s, Kao Corporation has been actively working together with industry associations and relevant third parties to find robust alternatives to animal testing which have been successfully adopted as international guidelines.

What are parabens? Why are they in Jergens® lotions?

Parabens are preservatives used to keep health and beauty products fresh by preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. These compounds are amongst the most commonly used cosmetic preservatives in the world and have a long history of safe use. Parabens have been extensively studied and use in cosmetic products is allowed by regulatory authorities around the world.
