When I’m staying at hotels I normally stay well away from the free bathroom products.
The choice on offer generally seems to fall into one of two categories; luxury products (for luxury hotels) or plan cheap and chemical. Unfortunately the decisions about what products to offer seem to be made around positioning and cost, rather than a social conscience to provide cruelty-free products.
I’m staying this week at a Quest Apartments property and was genuinely surprised to see that the Puriti brand products in the bathroom include a claim on the packaging that they are ‘Not tested on animals’.
Go Quest – I’m impressed … but am left with a couple of questions.
The ‘Not tested on animals’ claim is only on the packaging for the tube products – i.e. the shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion – it is not on the packaging for the soap. I’m hoping this is just because they ‘forgot’ to put it on there???
The packaging also makes it clear that the products were ‘Made in China’. My understanding of anything made in China was that it had to be tested on animals – but I might have that wrong, and it might only be products that are sold in China.
I’m going to follow up with Quest and see if they can answer my questions – and I’ll update here if I hear back from them.
It would be fantastic if ALL of their Puriti products are indeed all not tested on animals – would be even better if they could leave out some of the chemicals (see picture below)!
