It is important for us to operate our business whilst respecting the world we live in. This includes people, animals, and our natural environment. We are always looking for ways to improve this.
We give 10% of our profits to the Myna Mahila Foundation, which helps women access hygienic menstruation products in rural communities in India, you can read more here https://www.poppysns.co.uk/helpingwomen.
Poppy's Natural Skincare believes that beauty should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.
All of our own brand cosmetic products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for Cruelty Free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.

We are registered with the Vegan Society. 12 out of 13 products are 100% Vegan.
The Vegan Society registration @vegantrademark means our products conform to the strict requirements maintained by The Vegan Society of being free from animal-derived ingredients and animal testing. It also ensures that no animals have been exploited in the manufacture of our ingredients. For example, we use coconut butter in our body butter, where we had to ensure no monkeys were used to pick the coconuts.
We are happy to do this as we are passionate about using ethically sourced plant-based ingredients that are mainly organic.
