Ethical Mica Sourcing Policy
I asked Grande Cosmetics if their mica is ethically sourced without forced or child labor and they responded stating,
“You asked if the mica in our products is ethically sourced so we went straight to our mica supplier. They sent us a full declaration letter that I cannot attach to this email as it will disclose the name of our supplier. However, I lifted the information below directly from the letter. Yes, our mica is ethically sourced and our supplier feels so strongly about this that they have established a policy and require written certificates in regard to the fact that child labor is not used in their mica mining.
As part of our values and principles, XXXXX Products, Inc. and its affiliates are committed to being socially responsible, and have established a written policy regarding Child Labor and Forced Labor. We condemn the use of child labor in particular, in manufacture and service of any raw materials. All of our mica suppliers are required to annually provide certificates that child labor is not used in mica mining and the subsequent manufacturing processes.”
