TCCD loves and appreciates animals

At Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal we love animals! It's very important to us that we ensure our products are cruelty-free. We manufacture and distribute our own products in-house, so we can verify no animals have ever been or will be used for testing. Instead, we rely on friends, family and the scientists who work with our products to act as test subjects. We are committed to not selling any products that are inhumane.

In order for a company to be considered cruelty-free, absolutely no products or ingredients within the company can originate from harmful testing or treatment of animals. This includes but is not limited to: separating mother from child, using ingredients that are made up of dead animal parts and keeping animals in confined spaces.

Leaping Bunny, The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics, recognizes our products as Cruelty-Free. The company administers cruelty-free standards for cosmetic, personal care and household products. Leaping Bunny maintains that cruelty-free companies can use a combination of methods to ensure safety, such as employing in vitro tests and/or conducting clinical studies on humans. They provide the best assurance that no new animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or suppliers.

Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal is also proud to be PETA Certified. PETA believes that the testing of animals is both immoral and ineffective, as animals will have different reactions to products than humans. PETA recognizes us as a vegan company, meaning we do not test on animals and our line does not contain animal byproducts.

At TCCD, we strongly support Leaping Bunny and PETA's cause. We continuously participate in animal rights events around the country. Recently we participated in a conference called "Taking a Stand for Animals" which evokes a message of a better world for all of us, either four legged or two. Our products were also featured on the Van's Warped Tour at the Human Society's booth.

We want our animal-loving customers to be confident in our products, knowing they are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Whether you are vegan, vegetarian or just an advocate for cruelty-free products, our Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are for you.

With the knowledge that our products are safe for humans and are also developed in a cruelty-free testing environment, you can be assured that our products are as natural as they come.

Our stance on cruelty-free testing reinforces our desire to provide our customers with a product that is 100% natural and safe not only for users but for the test subjects that try our products first. We continue to advocate the importance of cruelty-free testing and strive to be an example for all cosmetic companies. Keeping animals and people safe is a value that we at TCCD continuously stress, and we are committed to maintaining this value with every product we produce.
