TRULY ANIMAL-FREE?

Many in vitro tests use animal components and so can’t be called truly animal-free. To provide more transparency on this issue, we’ve developed the Scale of Animal-free to help you assess the ethics of various test methods.

Our consultancy service is designed to give you the support you need to develop and launch new cosmetic products in the UK and Europe, combining an ethical approach with scientific excellence.
