World's most ethical companies 2014 (four are cosmetic companies)

edited March 2014 in General
World's most ethical companies 2014, according the American think tank EthiSphere - four are cosmetic companies:

Shiseido (Japan);

Kao Corporation (Japan);

L'oréal (France);

Natura (Brazil).

I don't know about their methodology, but it's interesting to see many companies that imply to be more ethical than others aren't in the ranking.


  • Interesting!
  • Yeah I can see cosmetic companies in there. They are so demonized they kind of have to try to do good. 
  • I hope this is the right place to post this - apologies if not. I just read this piece in the New Yorker and though it doesn't involve a cosmetics related company, I wonder how pervasive this kind of behavior is in industry. I want to fully trust our regulatory process (and feel like I have a much better understanding of it after listening to the podcast and reading through the archives), but this makes me a little nervous. Beauty Brains, what do you think about the role of industry subsidizing research?
