We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria.

Controlled organic cultivation
The 100 % pure aloe vera juice aloepur and most of the raw materials used for our cosmetics bear the EU organic farming logo. It is based on the EU Eco-regulations no. 834/2007 and 889/2008. The EU organic farming logo is the standard symbol for organically grown produce across Europe and prevents the use of genetic engineering and mineral nitrogen fertilizer, promotes animal welfare, reduces energy consumption and preserves reserves of raw materials.
