NO ANIMAL TESTING
Little Innoscents products are not only certified organic, but they are also Cruelty Free, with none of our products being tested on animals.
Cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals. In simple terms NO ANIMAL TESTING.
Sadly, many products are tested on animals and are often painful and cause the suffering of millions every year. Animals such as rabbits, rats, mice, and guinea pigs are forced to eat or inhale substances, or have a cosmetic ingredient rubbed onto their shaved skin, eyes or ears every day for 28 or 90 days to see if they have an allergic reaction. Then they are killed and cut open to examine the effects the ingredient has on internal organs. The very sad thing is that this method is simply not necessary anymore…. As technology developed, outdated animal testing is being replaced with quicker, cheaper and more accurate methods. For example, reconstructed human epidermis—which uses human skin donated from cosmetic surgery to replace the rabbit Draize skin test—is more relevant to human reactions. Other methods replace the Draize eye test by using in vitro (test-tube) human tissue.
Another cruelty-free option is using ingredients that have already been established as safe, such as the 20,000 ingredients in the European Union database.
We are accredited cruelty free with Choose Cruelty Free (CCF) which is an independent, non-profit organisation based in Australia, which actively campaigns for an end to animal testing of cosmetics, toiletries and other household products. They produce the CCF List, which is a wonderful resource for checking that the products that you are using are 100% cruelty free.
Australian Directory for ALL THINGS ORGANIC
Guide To Organics founder Kali Wellington is a big advocate of Certified Organic products. Located in Perth, Western Australia Kali has created a website where you can find anything organic Australia wide.
Kali found her way into the organic space after her son developed food allergies and eczema, and Kali experienced a pretty serious bout of depression. Instead of turning to steroid creams and anti-depressants she took a different approach: throwing nearly everything out of her pantry, filling her fridge with fresh organic fruits and vegetables, preparing fresh green juices nearly every day, including organic nutrient-dense whole foods, introducing fermented foods, probiotics and upped the yoga classes.
It didn’t take long before Kali saw a shift. Her sons food allergies and eczema cleared, and she felt the best she’d ever felt. Kali felt so empowered from making such simple changes she created Guide To Organics with the aim to help others attain better health in a fraction of the time.
The Guide is constantly expanding with sections for Products, Shops, Growers, Cafes & Restaurants, Supplies & Services. There’s even a section for Upcoming Health Events as well as a relevant Blog which is updated regularly.
Kali believes that eating organic food and educating yourself about all aspects of health and wellness is the key to a life filled with good health and vitality.
Further to the easy-to-use website, Kali sends out an e newsletter to subscribers on a fortnightly basis with links to new Blog articles and special offers from organic businesses around Australia.
Today, Guide To Organics is in a state of constant growth and expansion. As Australians become more conscious about their health and dissatisfied with traditional treatments, more people are now looking for Certified Organic options.
