Yes, Harlo is cruelty free.
Available through Harlo Design Studio, Harlo is an Australian skincare brand that cares for varying skin types. This includes oily, dry, combination, sensitive, and dehydrated skin. The botanical collection was developed by Tarmaine, a qualified aesthetician in search of ethical, water-free, and pH-neutral products for her body.
Harlo prides themselves in crafting organic products in small batches placed in recyclable biophotonic glass containers. They only use completely organic ingredients, shunning cheap fillers as well as synthetic ingredients and fragrances that may harm its users. On their FAQs page, they answer the question:
“ARE YOUR PRODUCTS CRUELTY FREE AND VEGAN?
Yes, our organic skincare collection is Cruelty-Free Certified and Vegan Friendly Certified.”
Though they do not delve into the details of their cruelty-free and vegan claim, their company can be found on the list of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) global Beauty Without Bunnies program. A quick search on the PETA website reveals that the company does not conduct tests on animals and that all their products are made from plant-based sources. This certification guarantees that Harlo does not test its ingredients, formulations, and products on animals at any stage and anywhere in the world.
