Email to the Company
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions:
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except Hong Kong)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
This is how Youth to the People responded to my email:
1. All our products are vegan.
2. Absolutely none of our products are tested on animals.
3. We do not have a leaping bunny or PETA cert. We are in the process of acquiring those in the coming months but the certification process takes time.
4. They do not.
5. We do not.
6. We are not owned by a parent company and even if we were, this would definitely be a deal-breaker.
We really pride ourselves on being a transparent and honest company that is safe for our consumer’s skin, all animals, and our planet. I hope that helps!
