Animal testing is not allowed here!
We have never tested on animals & we never will.
Our Animal Testing Policy
~Under no circumstances whatsoever will we test on animals. We developed all of our without one animal test. We took advantage of the kindness of friends, family, and well-established customers to help test and refine these formulas. We believe it is pretty mean to test a product on a helpless creature who cannot experiment on humans. It is terrible to consider what is happening in cosmetic laboratories all over the world.
~ While consensual human testing of potentially dangerous materials may be necessary for medical research; we do not need to take risks with daily skin care. We formulated your products from highly reliable sources using raw ingredients to create safe, green, and fabulous products.
~Our products are from pure raw materials that human beings and animals have been living with and using, safely, for thousands of years. These materials would include things like olive oil, beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter, spices, flowers, and common herbs.
Why do we not carry the Leaping Bunny Logo or the PETA Logo?
We support these two wonderful organizations. I believe we are listed internally on both of these websites as supporting this cause; however, the process to acquire permission to use their logos is overwhelming and tedious for small companies. Additionally, we have found the annual fees and the necessary administrative cost prohibitive. The last time we had a staff member start these forms, the stress, cost, and time to make applications were overwhelming. However, the primary reason is that we must annually begin a new application.
From time to to time we will revisit the logo issue, and bases of our decision will be the amount of required paperwork involved, the annual fees, and if yearly submissions are required. We would also love it if administrative expenses reduced by providing an alternative with an easier to apply system. We want to do this, but the high fees would mean a cost transfer to customers in the form of higher prices. We pride ourselves on keeping quality high and our costs reasonable. We are also proud of being kind to animals and never testing on them.
