Email to the Company

Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions. 

  1. Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
  2. Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
  3. Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
  4. Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
  5. Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
  6. Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?

This is how Phyla responded:

1. Yes! All of our products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
2. No, our products or ingredients have never and will never be tested on animals. 
3. Yes, we hold certifications from both the Leaping Bunny Program and PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program.
4. No. Our lab facilities are 100% animal component-free.
