Viva Cruelty Free!
We are proud stockists of the amazing Viva La Body! Viva La Body are passionate about using natural and sustainable ingredients that deliver the best product possible! Not only are they Australia's first true zero waste (which means no tins, no glass jars or bottles - all packaging can be composted when finished) sustainable beauty brand, but they also tick the box for being vegan and plant based, palm oil free and cruelty free.
It is definitely not easy to claim cruelty free and people often get confused when a product claims to be vegan. Viva La Body is certified by ‘Choose Cruelty Free’, they are an independent, non-profit organisation based in Australia. CCF actively campaign to end animal testing that facilitates to market cosmetics, toiletries and other household products. Why is this so important? Because as consumers we have power to change attitudes about testing products on animals.
With this in mind you can enjoy your Viva La Body products, which ever you choose we know they work, the positive feedback from our customers is overwhelming.
And every time we get our delivery the scent in the workplace is beautiful, you can smell the natural oils and love that go into making these products!
As consumers we all know it can be hard to be totally informed about all the products we use, we think the challenge for all is growing in our understanding, being more aware, reflecting on eco-friendly products and how this aligns with our values - then of course taking action, make that decision to change! Because when we’re able to align our values and convictions with a product that you love using and that it really works it is just bliss! Viva La Body has been able to achieve this for so many!
Is testing on animals that bad? Unfortunately, the beauty industry does not want to make a big deal about this side of their product production. Animal testing is something that might make us feel uncomfortable knowing about, its confronting to think that animals have chemicals forced down their throats, dripped into their eyes or smeared onto their skin to test their safety for use in cosmetics. Animals like rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice are used in this way. This really doesn’t need to be happening. It is estimated that globally around 500,000 animals suffer and die just for cosmetics each year!
The Humane Society International encourage us with the fact that producing cosmetics without animal suffering is actually quite simple, that there is no excuse for companies to continue testing cosmetics on animals. All they need to do is use combinations of thousands of existing cosmetic chemicals already established as safe, combined with available non-animal test methods.
