I applied for cruelty free status some months ago. It was not an easy process at all. Getting my suppliers sorted who were cruelty free meant getting proof and waiting on them to provide the necesary documents. The rules had changed also since I was first given the application form 12 months earlier. My own fault for taking so long to apply, made a mess of things, but in the end it was all finished, suppliers statements submitted and then just waiting to hear back. On the 18th of August 2014 Aromatic Essentials was granted Cruelty Free status!
This means that no ingredients used in any Aromatic Essentials products have been tested on animals, by myself or by any of my suppliers or their suppliers.
