Ahimsa – a Sanskrit word meaning “reverence for life” is one of our founding principles and explains our stance on animal welfare; we do not conduct animal testing on any of our products and we do not ask others to do it for us either. We refrain from selling our products in those countries that legally require animal tested products. Our products and cosmetics contain no animal ingredients (not even honey, lanolin, beeswax etc) and have been certified by PETA as cruelty free and vegan.
At OMVED, we are continually developing new products, but our safety testing relies extensively on dermatological tests on human volunteers and scientific databases which confirm the good skin compatibility of our products. We select our raw materials based on extremely high standards of quality and purity and stringent quality controls thus assuring high levels of safety and quality.
