Ethical Mica Sourcing Policy
I asked Dirty Hippie Cosmetics if their mica is ethically sourced without forced or child labor and they responded stating,
“Our micas are sourced from a mixture of fair trade and open market. The labs we decided to pair with both have anti child labour agreements and programs in place. The agreements are in place to ensure and stop the ongoing issues within the areas of the world that these ingredients are mined. They are generally areas where laws and business processes are lax and the companies we have engaged in invest time to enforce some serious change. The companies we work with are definitely trying their best in a world where other companies are happy to turn a blind and seriously uncaring eye. (Danni the owner of the brand is working long term on saving enough capital to visit each of our manufacturers in person and actually meet the people behind our colourful, exotic and sustainably grown ingredients. Tracing every single ingredient all the way back to the source was a huuuge part of setting DHC up, it actually took longer to get our supplier chains set up than it did to formulate the range! But it has been so worth it though)”
