Becoming Clean & Cruelty-Free™ Approved
We require all brands we work with to go through an approval process. During this process we examine your animal testing policies and product ingredients. We WILL NOT work with a brand who does not meet our requirements (tests on animals and/or uses highly-toxic ingredients).
To start the approval process, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the answers to the following questions:
- Do you test your finished product or ingredients on animals at any point in your production process?
- Do the suppliers of your ingredients test on animals at any point?
- Do any third party companies test your products on animals on your behalf?
- Are your products sold in areas where animal testing is required by law such as mainland China?
- Is your brand owned by another company? If so, which company?
- Does your brand hold a cruelty-free certification from Leaping Bunny, PETA, or another source?
- Which ingredients do you consider toxic and keep out of your products?
Once we’ve reviewed your answers to the above questions, we’ll take a look at your ingredient list for 1-3 products. If the ingredient review is passed we’ll notify you of your approval and add your brand and website to our Clean & Cruelty-Free Brand list.
After initial approval a team member may reach out in 12-18 months to re-verify your Clean & Cruelty-Free status. We hold the right to refuse or revoke approval at any time.
