Cruelty Free Commitment


Our commitment to prevent animal cruelty in the cosmetic industry

Collinge & Co do not test on animals or use ingredients derived from animals. We are committed to our products being cruelty free and suitable for vegans.

We are proud to be part of the PETA’s Global Beauty Without Bunnies program and we are registered on PETA’s Global animal test–free and vegan list:

Our commitment to the prevention of cruelty against animals is:

  • we will never test finished products on animals
  • we will only use raw materials in our products that are not tested on animals
  • we will only use non-animal derived ingredients
  • we will not sell our products in countries that require products to be tested on animals

All our products are manufactured in the UK. We use reputable cosmetic suppliers and chemists with wide knowledge of the cosmetics industry to ensure we use safe ingredients with great performance. To ensure our products are safe for use, we test new-product development and finished products on human volunteers.

The EU has introduced three bans on the testing of cosmetic product on animals: in 2004 the testing of finished cosmetic products on animals was prohibited; a ban on testing ingredients used in cosmetics products was introduced in 2009; and, in 2013 the EU Cosmetics Directive came into being, banning the manufacture, sale and marketing of animal tested cosmetics in the EU. As a result, no raw materials we purchase for the production of our products are tested on animals.
