Mustela is committed to healthy skin from birth on* and chooses to use safe, effective ingredients, with a focus on natural ingredients.
*Including babies out of neonatology.
Mustela gives priority to ingredients of natural origin, with an average of
95% natural ingredients, in its babies-children products,
98% in its products for very sensitive skin and in its nappy change products.
The remaining % are texture, stability and preservative ingredients that are guaranteed high tolerance and have no safe and effective natural counterparts.
*Excluding seasonal references and maternity products
We ban a RED LIST of ingredients from our formulas with restrictions that go beyond the European regulation - already known as one of the strictest and safest in the world.
In order to ensure about our product tolerance and allergenic potential evaluation, Mustela carries out more than 450 measurements and tests on each product before its marketing to ensure its quality, safety and efficacy: Mustela carries out in vitro tests on models of baby skin of different ages (a patented worldwide exclusive called Stelaskin®) to validate the tolerance of its formulas before testing them in real conditions of use on infants under 1 month old and babies.
