Yes, Zk’in Certified Organic Skincare is cruelty free.
Zk’in Certified Organic Skincare is an Australian owned skin care brand. Founded by Grace Culhaci, it sells “honest beauty” products that do not contain toxins, parabens, and sulphates. Instead, Zk’in uses all organic ingredients, does not use animal byproducts, and is certified cruelty free. Their organic shop is divided into three sections, namely product type, skin type, and skin concern.
Zk’in shares that their entire range is cruelty free on its FAQs page. They explain, “Zk’in is a Choose Cruelty Free licensee and proudly bears the not tested on animals bunny logo. Zk’in undergoes an annual reaccreditation with Choose Cruelty Free providing statements from every supplier confirming their no animal testing policies. In this way you can be sure that not only do we as a company not test on animals but each and every supplier that we work with shares this belief.”
Aside from being cruelty free, they take one step further by selling only vegan products. Zk’in states, “The entire Zk’in range is vegan—we have absolutely no interest in using animal based ingredients as we view that practice as unsustainable and completely unnecessary. Some suppliers don’t like it when we drill down into the components of their materials but we won’t proceed with a material unless we see proof it’s vegan—we’ve had to enter into a lot of confidentiality agreements to be given open access to their component origins.” However, the brand does not share their vegan certification.
