06 Apr FAQ and Allergy Advice
Are your products Cruelty Free?
We strongly believe in and are charitable supporters of animal welfare, Oryza Beauty (Eton Rock Brands) pledges to be cruelty free. We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure all of our formulations and their raw ingredients and even packaging have no animal cruelty associations and minimal impact on the environment, therefore we DO NOT test cosmetics or cosmetic ingredients on animals. Squalane/Squalene act as lubricating skin conditioning agents, which gives the skin a soft, smooth appearance, as well as hair conditioning agents. We only use plant derived Squalane from Olive Oil, Wheat Germ Oil and Rice Bran Oil (Oryza Sativa).
Are your products Gluten Free?
We use only organic cereal crop essential oils and fats in our formulations and are unable to guarantee that our formulas or constituent raw ingredients are 100% Gluten Free. Our USP ingredient Oryza sativa (rice germ oil) may still contain a small percentage of gluten which persists through the non-ethanolic distillation process, however this organic oil is very high purity (99.9%) and as such we can advise patch testing of our formulas on an area of sensitive skin (such as the underside of the wrist) to test for any reactions before use.
Do your products contain nuts?
We use only organic cereal crop essential oils and fats in our formulations we are unable to guarantee that our formulas or constituent raw ingredients are 100% nut free, we would therefore recommend that our range of products are NOT suitable for those with severe nut allergies.
