Ethical Mica Sourcing Policy
I asked FACE atelier if their mica is ethically sourced without forced or child labor and they responded stating,
“Thank you for your email. I’m happy to tell you that our natural micas are Child Labour Free certified. When sourcing raw ingredients, a crucial factor is whether they are ethically sourced and produced in a sustainable manner. FACE atelier is committed to producing products that represent safe, sustainable and ethically sourced beauty.
Our chemists exercise the highest degree of due diligence when purchasing raw ingredients for our products. For example, the shea butter used in our formulations is Fair Trade certified. Even though certification is not available for many raw ingredients, its absence is irrelevant because FACE atelier has always chosen to be on the right side of history. The brand was cruelty free from the day one, before we received accreditation from PETA and Leaping Bunny. It’s in that spirit FACE atelier is committed to using only safe and effective ingredients that are sustainable and ethically produced. Products on 99% vegan and we’re close to reaching 100%. Lastly, our minimal and easily recyclable packaging reflects our commitment to the environment as well as our long-held philosophy that product is more important than packaging.”
