The thought of animal cruelty quite frankly makes us shudder so we go the extra mile to make sure that our products and raw ingredients and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans*.
Some of the messages out there on animal cruelty could leave you a bit bedazzled and almost ‘blinded by science’. However, the important thing you need to know is that because our products are made in the UK, they and the ingredients we use have not been tested on animals. They all comply with EU cosmetic legislations and compliance directives. Basically since March 2009 testing ingredients on animals in the EU for cosmetic purposes has been banned. Product animal testing had already been banned in the EU.
*Our balms such as Rose Petal Salve contain beeswax which is not suitable for some vegans. We decided to include beeswax in our balms due to its unique properties to soothe cracked skin and protect against moisture loss, synthetic beeswax can't quite replicate the miracle of mother nature.
