“Thank you for reaching out about our products. We do not and have never tested our products on animals. They are all manufactured in the European Union where animal testing is now banned.
All of our raw material suppliers for these ingredients guarantee that for their production no animals are harmed or killed. For example, our keratin is extracted from sheep’s wool which would have been thrown away as a byproduct of wool production in New Zealand.
However, we do sell to and have distribution in China.”
