Be confident in Ban Antiperspirant Deodorant safety, efficacy and standards.
Our priority is delivering the most effective products without compromising safety. We set the highest standards to ensure every material and finished formula meets industry standards for purity, quality and performance with no exceptions. And we understand that sometimes, what isn’t is a formula is just as important as what is, that’s why we’re committed to including only what is needed to deliver results.
The Ban Brand has committed to develop and sell only those products that meet our commitment to be Cruelty Free, Paraben Free and Dye Free.
Ban products are cruelty-free. We do not test our products—or the materials within them—on animals.
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.
Parabens are preservatives used to keep health and beauty products fresh by preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. They have been extensively studied and determined to be safe for usage in personal care products by expert scientific panels and governmental regulatory agencies. Parabens are also naturally occurring in many foods that we enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle. These include cucumbers, carrots, onions, blueberries and cherries.
Although these preservatives have been evaluated as safe for use, we recognize that some consumers have chosen to avoid usage of parabens. We confirm for these consumers that our Ban formulas do not contain parabens.
Dyes are obtained from both natural and synthetic sources. They are used in personal care products to provide an aesthetically pleasing color to enhance the overall experience during usage. They may also be used to mask an unattractive appearance resulting from some of the other ingredients in the formula. Our Ban antiperspirant formulas do not require these functions and do not contain dyes.
