CRUELTY-FREE AND VEGAN
At FIG Femme our objective is to help you feel empowered and confident in yourself, your life and the choices you make. That is why FIG Femme products are never tested on animals, with all raw ingredients compliant with EU regulations and testing bans. You can be assured our range is 100 per cent vegan, with our unique formulas abstaining from using any animal products, including honey and beeswax.
Do our products contain palm oil? Yes, it is found in one of our ingredients - Glycerin. But we stress that the palm oil in this ingredient is Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified, meaning our suppliers have gone through an extensive auditing process which looks into various environmental and social factors for them to be recognised as being RSPO approved. This certification enables them to trade and produce sustainable palm oil, and in return helps to minimise the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil producing regions.
WHY USE GLYCERIN AT ALL THEN?
The palm oil industry is a complicated one and one we do not take lightly. We have done our utmost to try to create products that are 100 per cent palm oil-free and, like many others in the beauty industry, have found it difficult sourcing palm oil-free derivatives due to the intricacy of the supply chain. Glycerin is a humectant (helps to retain and preserve water) and is the key to leaving your skin hydrated. Unfortunately, there are currently NO alternatives on the market that are 100 per cent palm oil free.
We assure you we are committed to animal welfare and minimising environmental impact. We continue to keep our finger on the pulse as new developments in this trade become available and will continue to update you as the beauty industry and its supply chains progress.
With sustainability at the forefront of our entire FIG Femme eco-system, we have made every effort to ensure that all ingredients and materials used in our products are sustainably sourced. This includes everything from the sustainably-sourced cotton in our masks, the palm oil included in the Glycerin, and our packaging used to ship FIG Femme directly to you. Wherever possible, we aim to continue to minimise our footprint and integrate sustainable practices throughout our daily procedures and production.
Our planet is important to us, and here at FIG Femme we are dedicated to producing quality products that do not cost us the earth, financially or environmentally.
We are committed to bringing you full transparency, ensuring that we only work with manufacturers that are carbon neutral and certified by the SGS (the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company).
