Mary Kay Inc. and the Society for Investigative Dermatology


As of February 2014, current evidence suggests that Mary Kay Inc. has discontinued its partnership with the Society of Investigative Dermatology.

Please refer to their website for the latest on their industry partnerships. Please do refer to the information below regarding their past support of the SID and the work of the SID.


Mary Kay Inc. is found to be linked with the Society for Investigative Dermatology which is involved with and supports embryonic stem cell research.

The Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) is listed in boycott lists, including Life Decision International's boycott list, as being involved with and supporting embryonic stem cell research.

Mary Kay Inc. clearly lists the SID as an industry partner directly on its website.

Furthermore, the SID is directly affiliated with the Association of Professors of Dermatology, another organization listed as being involved with and supporting embryonic stem cell research.

There is also further evidence suggesting a rather intricate connection between Mary Kay Inc. and the SID aside from its post of its support on its website.

Here are several links and illustrations that show this connection.

NEW EVIDENCE of SID's support of embryonic stem cell research. The use of human embryonic stem cells in research is listed directly in their annual meeting program for 2012. To download the document visit the SID page on Past Annual Meetings. Search the document for words like embryonic, fetal and stem cells.

Mary Kay Inc. was a silver benefactor for an annual meeting for the SID along with many others.

Do a few Google searches and you will discover that doctors involved with the SID are also involved in Mary Kay Inc., and that Mary Kay Inc. has independently contracted them for research. Here are just a few search results:
