**Clarification upon this clarification: Yves Rocher is NOT cruelty-free, though they were at one point. The article cited in this post dates back to a time where they were certified by One Voice, though they have been unable to maintain this status.
The blog entry I made last year, that questioned Yves Rocher’s animal testing policy, generated a lot of talk (which is awesome!). I just wanted to post up a brief entry, once and for all, to ensure consumers that the company DOES NOT test.
I have been attempting to navigate One Voice’s website to actually find the official list from them of companies that they certify, because I can’t find an indication on Yves Rocher’s site (Canada’s or France’s), that they’re One Voice certified. Unfortunately, I only know Canadian French, and I’m not even fluent; I could be totally missing it!
Regardless, One Voice seems to be a great organization. I also read that the high-end (and awesome) brand Caudalie is also certified by One Voice.
Interestingly, Caudalie makes it perfectly clear that they are certified not only by One Voice, but by PETA as well.
If anyone can happen to locate an official list from One Voice to show who they certify, that would be absolutely fabulous. I’ll contact them myself to see if they can forward me to the list directly.
Despite Yves Rocher not testing on animals, I still don’t regularly use their stuff, but I think it’s quite important to let everyone know where they officially stand as far as animal testing is concerned.
