Yes, Gardenia Rose is cruelty free.
Gardenia Rose is a tanning brand that is sold in Australia and New Zealand. Its Aussie makers consider themselves as modern-day hippies “who want to be part of the change to green beauty without sacrificing the results.” In line with this, their mission is to “create cruelty-free, vegan, plant-based products that are sustainable. We care for you, the animals, and our earth.”
The brand only sells three products on their website, which are their overnighter self-tan, self-tanning mitt, and sanitising spray. These products are all certified by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) Beauty Without Bunnies program as animal-friendly and safe for vegans to use. On their homepage, they share, “We do what we say, we made a pledge never to use animal products or test on animals. We are all about LOVE.”
On PETA’s blog, the third-party organisation reveals what makes companies such as Gardenia Rose animal test-free and vegan. They state:
“Global animal test-free recognizes companies and brands that have verified that they and their suppliers do not conduct, commission, pay for, or allow any tests on animals for their ingredients, formulations, or finished products anywhere in the world and that they will never do so in the future.
Global animal test-free and vegan recognizes companies and brands that meet the same requirements and whose entire product line is free of animal-derived ingredients. These companies are truly cruelty-free.”
