When I asked Trilogy where their mica is mined from and if their mica is ethically sourced, they responded saying:
“While Trilogy’s business is fundamentally based on the performance of our products, our culture is based on our philosophy of sustainable, ethical business practices. We have always had strict criteria for selecting ingredients to be included in our products. We source from responsible suppliers, fair-trade and certified organic where possible, who have transparent supply-chain processes. We do not test our ingredients, product prototypes or finished products on animals and we work closely with our ingredient suppliers to ensure they are aware of our company values and policies.
The ingredients we choose in our formulations are carefully selected for their proven benefits to the skin and they are independently tested for safety to EU standards. We label the ingredients in our products using a globally recognised system, the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) which you will find on the packaging of our products. All our products are reviewed by an independent safety assessor who analyses each of the raw ingredients and their concentrations within our formulations to make sure they are safe and comply with EU Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. We trust the assessors expertise as he is a qualified professional who knows the exact ingredients and inclusion levels within our formulations and he would advise if there are any ingredients we should be concerned about.
We wouldn’t be able to hold this certification if it wasn’t ethically sourced.“
