Fresh is NOT cruelty-free.
This means that this brand tests on animals or finances animal testing. Some brands that fall under this category test on animals where required by law, which means they're not cruelty-free.
Fresh does not test our products on animals.
We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We actively participate in validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe.
We are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department specifically dedicated to alternative methods applicable to the safety evaluation of raw materials and cosmetic products, in order to ensure both total control over raw materials and complete security of cosmetic products for consumers, which is our top priority.
As a result, all Fresh products undergo very strict tolerance tests using non-animal methods during the development of each product to ensure quality and safety prior to market.
Our products are made in Europe and USA, and for imported cosmetics the Chinese health authorities require companies to make their products available to the authorities to be tested in state-certified laboratories for registration purposes only, as it is currently their only recognized method to demonstrate product safety. These tests are not carried out by us, but by the Chinese authorities.
