We are the first holder of the international certificate of Humane Cosmetics Standard in the Czech republic. We are pleased to be among brands like Melvita, Ecover, Marks & Spencer, Lush, Sanoflore, The Body Shop and others… Humane Cosmetics Standard (HCS) is the only certificate valid worldwide and granted to cosmetic companies the products of which are not tested on animals INCLUDING INDIVIDUAL COSMETIC INGREDIENTS.
We have been the holder of the certificate since 2009 and we are happy that thanks to the common activities of organizations fighting againts animals it has been banned to test cosmetic ingredients on animals in the European Union since 2013 (the ban on the testing of finished cosmetic products has been in force since 2003).
What does it mean to be a holder of the certificate? We are committed not to trade our cosmetic products in the coutries where testing on animals is required. For that reason we did not accept an exceptionally interesting business project to export our cosmetic products to China. Some cosmetic brands lost the HS certificate due to selling cosmetics in China.
