BUXOM Cosmetics is committed to being responsible in its global business practices and takes steps with its product suppliers to ensure compliance with BUXOM Cosmetics’ standards of conduct as set forth in Shiseido Group Supplier Code of Conduct, of which BUXOM Cosmetics is a part, and all applicable laws. BUXOM Cosmetics has made the following efforts to ensure compliance by its product suppliers:

  • Certification: BUXOM Cosmetics requires all product suppliers to confirm in writing that they understand and will adhere to the Shiseido Group Supplier Code of Conduct. The Shiseido Group Supplier Code of Conduct specifically requires product suppliers to certify that all goods are manufactured in compliance with the wage and hour, slavery and human trafficking laws of the country of manufacture and without the use of children or prison, indentured, exploited, bonded, forced or slave labor.
  • Training: The Shiseido Group’s global procurement and supply chain management teams are trained on the Shiseido Group Supplier Code of Conduct and how to identify possible indicators of human trafficking and slavery in the supply chain to ensure that no risk factors are present.
  • Audits and Verification: BUXOM Cosmetics’ global procurement and supply chain management teams have the ability to audit product suppliers either itself or conduct an independent third party assessment, including conducting on-site inspections to assess factory conditions and ensure that management is not in violation of slavery and human-trafficking laws.
  • Accountability: BUXOM Cosmetics will not do business with any supplier who will not agree to comply with the Shiseido Global Supplier Code of Conduct or its other accountability standards. BUXOM Cosmetics will issue a warning to any supplier, employee or contractor who willfully or knowingly fails to comply with these standards and, if the supplier, employee, or contractor fails to take prompt corrective action, BUXOM Cosmetics will enforce disciplinary action including termination of the business relationship.

BUXOM Cosmetics is dedicated to conducting its business with integrity and the highest standard of ethics and seeks the same level of integrity and ethical standards with its vendor and supplier partners. BUXOM Cosmetics will continue to assess all risks and opportunities to ensure that its approach will prevent any injustice or violation of human rights within its supply chain.
