A: The use of safe ingredients is the premise on which Neways International is based. We do not take this important obligation lightly. Our scientists are continually evaluating the ingredients we currently use and determining the safest choices.
Issues that can be looked at scientifically to determine safety include the following: 1) acute toxicity at high doses in animals, 2) chronic toxicity at high doses in animals, 3) acute toxicity at normal doses in humans, 4) chronic toxicity at normal doses in humans, 5) contact irritation of skin and mucous membranes, 6) allergic reactions, 7) mutagenic potential in animals, 8) carcinogenic potential in animals, 9) embryo-toxicity in animals, and 10) metabolic products and excretion.
To obtain all this information literally takes years. Neways' Research and Development Department continually compares new possibilities with older proven ingredients. As research helps reduce controversy, Neways changes ingredients or justifies the uses of older ingredients, as the facts dictate.
