Yes, Retreatment Botanics is cruelty free.
Retreatment Botanics is an Australian skin care brand that was created in the hinterlands of Byron Bay. Co-founded by singer, actress, and advocate Olivia Newton-John, their toxic-free products are carefully formulated with highly potent, organic, and plant-based ingredients. From cleansers and moisturisers to masques and exfoliators, their collection targets skin problems such as dullness, uneven tone, and lines and wrinkles.
On their “Our Values” page, the brand shares their various certifications. It features the following logos: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) cruelty-free and vegan, Australian Made, Native Extracts Cellular Biomimicry, and Orangutan Alliance’s Certified Palm Oil Free. Newton-John shares the belief that “when everyone lives and creates with the principle of no harm, we can recreate an abundant, harmonious paradise for us all to share.”
In this regard, Retreatment Botanics is committed to sourcing ingredients, creating formulations, and manufacturing products that are cruelty free and vegan friendly. The skin care company has been certified by PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies program. The organisation explains the distinction of being only “cruelty free” versus “cruelty free and vegan,” which the brand falls under:
“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.”
