On March 11, 2013, the European Union banned all testing of cosmetics on animals. Not only is it prohibited to test cosmetics and their ingredients on animals on European soil, it is also prohibited to import cosmetic ingredients that have been tested on animals outside of Europe.

At BeOnMe, though, we have decided to pursue a global cruelty-free approach, not just within Europe, so we will also not export products to countries where the testing of cosmetics on animals is mandatory.

Our decision to solely develop vegan cosmetics comes out of a radical opposition to animal exploitation, a phenomenon which has begun to reach truly unacceptable levels.

In order to develop our products, we select our raw materials with great rigor in order to avoid ingredients of animal origin and those that are the result of the exploitation of animals.

The certification of cosmetics is a voluntary decision that is not required by law.

To obtain this certification, we turned to ECOCERT, an independent certification body, the work of which is verified by the French public accreditation authority, (Cofrac).

Active in the development of certification standards since 1991, the organization promotes an end-to-end approach, from the field to the consumer, with standards in both organic farming and the production of organic foodstuffs and cosmetics.

It is the world’s first independent certifying body for organic cosmetics and has certified over 1,400 businesses and more than 25,000 products in 130 nations worldwide.

ECOCERT certifies 90% of all organic products within the European Community and 30% of all organics worldwide.
