Why we don't have Cruelty-free writen on our label.

Eco.kid labels are compliant to the EU Labelling Standards for cosmetics. The mentioning of“no animal testing” is considered misleading on packaging under EU legislation as no cosmetic ingredients or finished products in the EU have allowed to be animal tested for more than 25-years. None of our products are ever tested on animals and every ingredient is audited by ACO Certification Ltd to be free-from animal testing.

Our Preservative Systems

"Microbial Hurdle Technology"

The Eco.kid’s Philosophy on Preservation

We must find safe, effective, and consumer acceptable ways to protect ingredients and products from microbial contamination through using a 100% non-toxic complete system in our packaged products, that once applied to the skin, in diluted form, do no harm to our consumer, or their skin’s microbiome. These “Hurdle Systems”, when combined with good manufacturing practices, create our biocidal-preservative-free, “Self-Preserving Personal Care” products that effectively prevent microbial contamination.
