Animal Testing Declaration
WE DO NOT TEST ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS ON ANIMALS AND NEVER HAVE, WE PREFER TO RELY ON OUR KNOWLEDGE OF ESSENTIAL OILS, INGREDIENTS, PLANTS, FLOWERS AND ESTABLISHED TECHNICAL INFORMATION AND PROFESSIONALS TO ENSURE EFFECTIVE AND SAFE PRODUCTS.
We believe there is already a “safe” and known group of product ingredients used in the cosmetics industry which leave enough scope to be creative and innovative in product formulation without the need for anymore animal testing on new experimental ingredients.
Our suppliers each also agree to not to carry out animal testing on the products and ingredients we purchase. We have a self-imposed cut-off date of 2006 (this was the date our cosmetic formulations came into being) although in reality our suppliers normally have animal testing dates far in excess of this or have never tested at all.
We do not conduct any form of animal testing.
We do not commission any form of animal testing from a third party.
We operate a fixed cut-off date for animal testing and ingedients, which means we will not use any ingredient that has been tested or retested on animals for cosmetics purposes since January 1, 2006
If we find that a company is involved in animal testing in anyway that purchases from us, then we will cease supply immediately. It is a term and condition that by purchasing from Naturallythinking you will not involve yourself or your company in any form of Animal Testing, any violation of this will be dealt with as per any violation of our terms and condtions
