CENTRED manufactures their products in the UK, in a facility that is very closeby to their office to lower their carbon footprint.

CENTRED is Cruelty-Free

CENTRED has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

By our standards, we would consider CENTRED to be Cruelty-Free.

“We have a have strict Cruelty Free requirements in place for all our ingredients and are not involved in any animal testing in anywhere along our supply chain. We do not use any ingredients that are required by law tested on animals or any other ingredients that have been tested on animals after the EU cut-off date of 11 March 2013.”

What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?

CENTRED has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China; therefore, they are not required to test on animals.

“No, none of our cosmetics are sold in mainland China.”

As of May 1, 2021, some imported ordinary cosmetics can be exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. However, for the most part, animal testing is still legally required for most imported cosmetics in 2022.

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.

At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, and by any third parties.

Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.

CENTRED is 100% Vegan

CENTRED has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

all of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans and are registered with The Vegan Society.

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.

Some common animal products used in cosmetics include carmine, lanolin, snail mucus, beeswax, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, animal-based glycerin, keratin, and squalene.

There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.

Where are CENTRED’s products made?

CENTRED’s website states, “Made in the U.K”

I hope this article helped you to understand CENTRED’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
