Our Commitment to Creating Cruelty Free Skincare Products
Arguably one of the best examples of unconditional love and acceptance in this world is modeled by our furry friends. The animal world is full of wonderful instances of animals helping each other, and helping humans. Whether you travel across the world to watch gorillas, volunteer to help at an animal shelter, or just romp with your favorite pooch at home, time with animals shows you the depth of their emotions and their ability to love. We believe that animals teach us how to be better people. That’s why we’re committed to providing only cruelty free skincare products.
We Say “No” To Animal Testing
With all of that love, would we ever want to hurt them? Absolutely not! At Ayr Skin Care, we appreciate all animals, and make sure that we buy our ingredients from suppliers that are certified in creating products with “no animal testing”. We do not test on animals, and even better, do not deal with any companies that do so.
Beauty Without Bunnies
Ayr Skin Care is proud to be certified by PETA’s “Beauty Without Bunnies” program, which is given to companies that do not test on animals, or use products/ingredients from companies that do so.
A Big World of Cosmetic Ingredients
Another way we choose to create cruelty free skincare products is to make sure that the ingredients sourced, like sustainable palm oil, are harvested by companies that are also certified as not endangering animal habitat. Saving money on cheap ingredients that harm wildlife is a definite “no” for our company.
Sharks are animals too! Did you know that not all squalene is created equal? Squalene is a fantastic emollient, and is a natural lipid that makes up our skin. It is great for sensitive skin, and is used in the creation of skin care moisturizers because it creates a moisture barrier between our skin and the elements.
Most of the companies today in the cosmetic industry who use squalene have enough sense to use this ingredient derived from vegetable sources, like olives. There have been instances though, of companies using squalene from shark livers, and that is unacceptable to us as a producer of cruelty free skincare products. When working with ingredients that can be sourced from animals or plants, we choose to use those that do not come at the expense of mistreating animals or killing animals.
We take pride in researching each ingredient that we use to make sure that we understand where it has come from, and how it has been manufactured/processed or harvested.
Help Your Furry Friends With Ayr Skincare
At Ayr Skin Care, our employees are nuts about their animals! This month on our Instagram posts, look for the Dogs of Ayr Skin Care, featuring photos of our friendly and fuzzy family members. Seeing their happy smiles, bright eyes and wagging tails when we get home at night, reminds us every day why we choose to do the extra leg work and ensure that we are not only creating great skin care, but that we are doing it with animals in mind too.
