Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms. This science involves an understanding of many aspects of biology and chemistry in order to determine what organs and organ systems may be effected by certain chemicals, and the mechanisms that cause these effects to take place.
A decision to use a specific ingredient in our products is based on a "Human Health Risk Assessment", which considers both a chemical's possible adverse effects - the potential hazards - and the amount of chemical required to cause that effect - the potential exposure or dose.
P&G scientists are pioneers in many areas of toxicology and risk assessment that are most relevant to making sure our products are safe for you to use.
