No. Animal testing of cosmetics is now illegal in Europe and has been for some time. Ingredients designed for cosmetics use only also come under this ban so thankfully this horrible practice is becoming a thing of the past. All the testing performed on AMELIORATE products were performed on people both for safety and efficacy

All of the Ameliorate products are suitable for vegetarians but not vegan, as the products contain milk protein. Ameliorate products are not organic.

I am lactose intolerant, can I use Ameliorate?
People who are lactose intolerant will not have any ill effects from using Ameliorate products. Lactose is a large sugar molecule that normally breaks down during digestion to smaller, digestible sugars Glucose and Galactone. Although chemically related, Lactic Acid and Lactates as used in Ameliorate are not sugars and do not perform similar functions in the body so topical application will definitely be no problem for lactose intolerant individuals.
I have a nut allergy, can I use Ameliorate products?
Some of the Ameliorate products contain Sweet Almond Oil. Almond Oil does not contain the proteins that cause concern for allergy sufferers. However, if you have a severe nut allergy we advise you take medical advice before using any product that contains a nut-derived ingredient.
What is the shelf life of Ameliorate products?
By law, cosmetic products must be fit for a minimum of three years from manufacture unless otherwise stated. Ameliorate products have been fully tested to comply with this regulation. We have suggested the product be used within 12 months of opening and this is indicated in the 'open jar' symbol.
Do Ameliorate use parabens?
No. They do not preserve Ameliorate products with parabens. Despite some negative press about paraben based preservatives no studies have yet been performed that show parabens to be unsafe. In fact parabens are increasingly being recognised by experts as the safest and most effective cosmetic preservatives available but we do understand that some people still have concerns so we have used alternative preservatives.
I have psoriasis, can I use Ameliorate products?
Psoriasis is a medical condition and should be treated as advised by your doctor. We would advise seeking medical advice before using Ameliorate products.
