ANIMAL TESTING POLICY
- At Akdeniz Company, we have always believed passionately in providing our consumers with highly effective, potent skincare products, developed with respect for our environment and without the use of animal testing.
- We adhere to the strict requirements of the European Cosmetics Directive (76/768 ECC) and the European Commission Regulation (1223/2009), which prohibits the commissioning and testing on animals, of products and ingredients, to develop new cosmetic products. Our skincare products are tested on consenting human volunteers through a “Cumulative Irritation Test” which determines the irritation and/or sensitisation potential of a product after repeated application to the skin of human subjects.
- We do not test our cosmetic and therapeutic products on animals as part of our product development process, or outsource this activity to any third parties, nor have we ever included animal testing in our product development process in the past. We work closely with our ingredient vendors to ensure they are aware of our company values and policies. We continue to adhere to the strict requirements of global cosmetic regulations regarding animal testing, with the utmost respect for our customers and the environment.
