Animal Testing

Animal Testing

Oils4life products contain natural ingredients that have been derived from botanical origins. Every one of these vegetable-derived extracts provides beneficial healing effects that have been employed safely and effectively for centuries on humans. It is our opinion that these ingredients do not require any further safety testing on animals.

Since incorporation our philosophy towards this emotive issue has not changed, and as a responsible and compassionate company we promise that we will never, ever, change it. In fact we are more committed than ever to see the end of this barbaric practice, and would ask that you too would support the movement against animal testing.


Oils4life No Animal Testing Policy Statement

"No product, or ingredient of any product, has ever been tested on animals by Oils4life Limited since its foundation in 2003 - nor will there ever be a cause to do so.

Furthermore, we have not and will not use the services of any research establishment to conduct animal testing on our behalf, either on a product or any product ingredient

Oils4life Limited has operated a strict policy to never purchase products or ingredients from suppliers or intermediary agents who have conducted, commissioned or been party to animal testing for cosmetics on them, since our foundation in 2003.

We require written assurances from each of our suppliers to ensure that the ingredients they sell to us comply with the Humane Cosmetics Standards, which stipulate that no animal testing is conducted or commissioned for finished cosmetic products or ingredients by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date.

Our commitment to the standard is such that if any of the ingredients we use were found not to be compliant with the standard, we would seek an alternative supplier for the relevant ingredients, or if necessary remove them from our product range."

Leaping Bunny

The Leaping Bunny Logo (trademark of Cruelty Free International) has become the only independently certified global 'cruelty free' mark. Certified companies are required to adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy, proactively monitor suppliers to ensure compliance with strict Leaping Bunny criteria and open up these supplier-monitoring systems to independent audit.

If you are undergoing certification through Leaping Bunny you will need to obtain declarations from all suppliers. Below is a statement from Oils4life.

We, Oils4life limited, located at 26 Blake Drive, Bradwell, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR31 9GW, hereby declare that no animal testing was conducted on any of our line of products after 11th March 2013 or on any of their ingredients/raw materials after 11th March 2013 for the purpose of compliance with the European Legislation on cosmetic products.
