How important is it to you that the products you buy are cruelty-free and have not been tested on animals? ALL of Neal’s Yard Remedies skincare & cosmetics are approved under Cruelty-Free International’s Humane Cosmetics Standards. Neal’s Yard Remedies doesn’t test any of their products on animals and never has. Everything they make is 100% vegetarian. They prefer to rely on their botanical and technical expertise to ensure their products are effective and safe. Instead of testing on animals, which have no say in the matter and can’t speak for themselves, they give their new products to human volunteers (through an independent company) who are more than happy to test them and give feedback.
Millions of animals are experimented on in the United States, however since 2013, the European Union banned the sale of cosmetics and ingredients tested on animals. Testing of cosmetic ingredients has been banned in the European Union since 2009.
Alternatives to Animal Testing
Today there are alternatives to animal testing providing greater accuracy in predicting outcomes. Cell cultures, human tissues, computer models, and human volunteers are all being successfully used instead of animals.
