Is Childs Farm Cruelty Free?
Yes! Childs Farm have certified cruelty free by Cruelty Free International since July 2018. Childs Farm do not test on animals. It takes a long time for this logo to hit the shelves, so their bottles may not contain the leaping bunny logo for a while yet. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that Childs Farm are a cruelty free brand. They confirm this here:
“we love animals and we are proud to have been awarded the Leaping Bunny certification by Cruelty Free International, which confirms that our products are cruelty free. the Leaping Bunny is the globally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free cosmetics, personal care, household and cleaning products and demonstrates that a brand is genuinely committed to removing animal testing from its supply chain.”
Do Childs Farm Have Vegan Products?
Almost all of Childs Farm products are vegan, with two exceptions: their strawberry and mint hair conditioner and hair detangler, which both contain honey. They don’t use any dairy products whatsoever. Most of their products are registered with the Vegan Society. All of Childs Farm Farmologie products are suitable for vegans.
This means they are an ideal place to look for cruelty free, vegan and naturally produced suncreams during the summer, as they go right up to SPF 50.
They also sell registered vegan baby oil and nappy cream. Their nappy cream is also listed as ‘cloth safe’ by the UK Cloth Nappy Library Network.
Their vegan baby wipes are dermatologist and paediatrician approved as suitable for sensitive skin, and are suitable for newborns. They’re also biodegradable, which leads us nicely on to…
Are Childs Farm a Sustainable Brand?
Being an almost entirely vegan brand automatically puts Childs Farm one step ahead of many. Animal-derived ingredients being so bad for the environment. In addition, they’re making small changes with their products, such as making their baby wipes biodegradable.
According to their website, Childs Farm and Farmologie products are typically made up of 96% Soil Association permitted ingredients, which means less chemicals and nasties in your bottle. Childs Farm also state that they’re looking to increase the amount of recycled plastic they use, although they don’t specify how much or when by.
On some of their basic ranges, Childs Farm have also started selling large 2.5L and 5L eco refill bottles! This saves you money and uses less plastic at the same time.
“The packaging on one 5L unit weighs 525g less than the collective weight of the packaging from 20 individual 250ml units using our current bottle and disc top cap. This is equivalent to 69% less plastic based on weight of the components”. Click here for more info!
