All animal products come from ethical farms where businesses can vouch for the integrity of agricultural operations. All animals should have appropriate diets, be free-range, antibiotic-free, and be ethically slaughtered. This does not apply to recycled, upcycled, or second-hand leather materials. Further, products were not tested on animals. All cosmetic products must be labeled with “Cruelty Free” and/or “Not Tested on Animals”. We rely on company reporting to verify this.
