Cruelty Free Fragrances

Our biggest supplier of fragrances  has issued the following statement to make clear their policy on materials and animal cruelty. This should reassure all producers who buy our products and are animal lovers like ourselves. The statement says:

"We support IFRA UK in its recommendations concerning animal welfare. It is the policy of [the Supplier] not to use ingredients in our fragrances or flavours which are of animal origin. These finished products are formulated using a combination of natural (vegetable origin), nature identical and synthetic raw materials.

It is also the policy of  [the Supplier] not to test materials on animals. Our materials have never been tested on animals by ourselves or on behalf of ourselves.

Our fragrances and flavours do not contain any animal derived ingredients or come into contact with any materials which could be derived from animals during manufacture and so are free from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE)."

The Candle Making Shop is in the process of obtaining similar statements from all of our other relevant suppliers and it is our policy not to use or sell any product that have any any detrimental effect on animal welfare.
