Yes, Botani is cruelty free.
Since 2003, Botani has produced “pure plant skin solutions” using high-quality, certified organic ingredients. The Australian brand offers skin care, body care, and hair care products broken down by concern, range, and category.
“As natural beauty enthusiasts, caring for our natural environment and precious wildlife are just as important to us as caring for your skin! We take pride in being a 100% certified cruelty free brand. From sourcing to distribution, we NEVER test on animals and WILL NEVER supply to countries where mandatory animal testing on cosmetics applies.
There is no need to turn to the animal kingdom when sourcing ingredients for skin care products. We understand the skin implicitly, and know that many solutions to our greatest skin care concerns lie in the plant world.
Botáni’s hero ingredient, Olive Squalene, is just one example of the lengths we go to for animal protection. We have built our products and our brand around replenishing the skin’s own built-in moisturiser, Squalene, which begins to decline as we age. With shark oil being the primary source of Squalene for most skin care products, we source our Squalene from olives—a much more expensive and complex (but sustainable) exercise.
Not only has Botáni been recognised by global animal welfare association PETA, but we continue to support different animal projects.”
More than just being cruelty-free, the brand also manufactures vegan-certified products. This certification was awarded by PETA and Vegan Australia. When you support Botani, you can rest assured the products have not been tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal products or byproducts.
