Johnson & Johnson recently announced updates to their baby product line—including new product formations, new packaging, and an initiative to expand where it discloses ingredients.
Johnson & Johnson teamed up with the UL science team to conduct an independent review of the fragrance ingredients used in the newly formulated baby products. While UL did not independently test any of the ingredients contained in Johnson and Johnson products, UL did on-site, desktop reviews of Baby Care products to verify that the maximum concentration of fragrances known to cause allergies or skin irritation and used in the formulated products fell below recognized acceptable limits for those fragrances.
UL also reviewed human patch studies provided by Johnson & Johnson. These studies were conducted by Johnson & Johnson according to standard protocols which demonstrate the maximum fragrance concentration used in any single product did not result in an allergic reaction or skin irritations in humans.
“Johnson & Johnson has taken advantage of UL’s Goodguide Benchmark Exception Policy and in doing so allowed UL access to human product level test data generated by J&J confirming that the concentrations of given fragrances used in their baby product line did not cause skin allergies or irritations in the group of humans tested.” – Paula Laux, Senior Regulatory Specialist
