Product Information and Other

  • What is your animal testing policy?

    The Sanctuary Spa brand is against animal testing. None of our products have been tested on animals and we only use ingredients from suppliers who have not tested them on animals for cosmetic purposes since 1998.  As many ingredients and raw materials have been tested historically, we apply a cut-off date of 1998 after which we do not use any materials that have been tested on animals. We state ‘Against Animal Testing’ on our packaging.

  • Do your products contain parabens?

    All of our products are free from parabens.
  • Do your products contain polyethylene microbeads?

    We have taken the initiative to reformulate where necessary to ensure none of our products contain polyethylene microbeads. We were one of the first in the industry to have done so and are proud to have already completely stopped using polyethylene microbeads and replaced with natural alternatives.

    As a responsible business, we are bound to following strict guidelines to ensure any alternative materials are safe and do not have an environmental impact. For this reason, product already manufactured prior to our reformulation still contains polyethylene microbeads and as with any replacement programme, there may still be some older products in the supply chain for a period of time - consumers will be able to identify these by reading the labelling on the back of pack.
  • Are your products vegetarian/vegan friendly?

    Vegetarian – The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians. You can query which ones by referring to the ingredients list on the back of pack or by checking the ingredients list on the product pages of our website.

    Vegan – Some products may not be suitable for vegans as they may contain animal derived by-products such as beeswax or silk. You can query which ones by referring to the ingredients list on the back of pack or by checking the ingredients list on the product pages of our website. Look out for our 'vegan friendly' green leaf symbol on our product pages. All product pages that have the symbol are vegan friendly.
  • Where do you stock your products?
