Animal Welfare Policy
We are deeply committed to the ethical sourcing of our product, which includes the humane treatment of animals. We expect all suppliers to make our branded and private label products in an ethical and responsible way. We require suppliers to only use skins, down and feathers that come from animals bred for food. In addition:
- We do not use angora or real fur.
- We oppose mulesing, and are phasing out the use of mulesed wool.
- We prohibit feathers and down plucked from live birds.
- We do not allow animal testing on our personal care products.
