Ethical Mica Sourcing Policy
I asked Côte if their mica is ethically sourced without forced or child labor and they responded stating,
“Thank you for your interest and concern regarding mica sourcing. The short answer is “yes,” we do ensure ethically sources materials.
Our main mica supplier sources out of Canada, Belgium and Brazil. In certain instances, it sources from India, but because of the issue with child labor laws and sustainability, they require a government issued statement guaranteeing that no children were used in the production, otherwise it is not used.
We do request regular assurances from our manufacturers of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) which is certified by Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD).“
