Not In Our Products
Nothing is more important to Kimberly-Clark than the quality and safety of our products and the well-being of the consumers who use them. We have rigorous safety and quality requirements and we are proud of our long track record of producing safe products. This commitment to safety includes the ingredients used in our products.
We maintain a Restricted Substances List to provide a consistent, global approach to safeguarding our consumers and the environment from exposure to ingredients of potential concern. We are committed to reducing or eliminating restricted substances and to implementing the use of alternatives through our continuous research and development efforts.
Restricted Substances Management at Kimberly-Clark is based on the following principles:
We require our suppliers to adhere to the Kimberly-Clark RSL, and to have processes and systems in place to ensure compliance.
Residuals at Kimberly-Clark:
* We do not add the materials identified on our Restricted Substances List to our products, however, we cannot always eliminate unavoidable traces of compounds that can originate from a variety of sources such as the manufacturing process or simply from the environment. To learn more, see Residuals.
