We have never tested our ingredients or final formulations on animals and we have no intention of doing so in future. That said to ensure the efficacy of our products every ingredient is carefully considered to ensure that it meets our high standards of quality, safety and effectiveness. While we are committed to avoiding testing on animals we acknowledge that in some jurisdictions both the formulations and ingredients may have been tested by government affiliates. We continue to lobby for change in these practices as we believe the cosmetic industry has a responsibility to protect the well-being of animals.
