Evolve Beauty FAQ
I can see fragrance on some of the ingredients lists. Is that natural?
Evolve Beauty only use 100% natural fragrance or essential oil blends in their products. Their essential oils are also extracted by using steam or cold pressing, and so are not chemically altered from their natural state.
Are Evolve Beauty products vegan?
Evolve Organic Beauty are proud that all their product range is vegan friendly and contains no animal derived ingredients, beeswax, or honey.
Does Evolve Beauty test on animals?
No, Evolve beauty does not test on animals. Animal testing has been illegal in the UK since 1998. However, there is a caveat as the company does use some ingredients that have been historically tested on animals.
Their website states: Although we aren't currently certified with Cruelty Free International (previously BUAV) we do follow the practice of setting a cut off period beyond which we won't use any animal tested ingredients. Our cut-off date is 2005.
Are Evolve Beauty products pregnancy safe?
Although all their products are formulated to be as pregnancy-safe as possible, Evolve Beauty do use essential oils in some of their range, which experts advise against using topically if you are pregnant. Some of their products also contain fragrance allergens resulting from their 100% natural fragrance blends, although Evolve highlight that these are in very small quantities.
Evolve’s website also references their Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner and Rainforest Rescue Blemish Serum. Both products contain a small percentage of willow bark, which is not recommended in pregnancy. If you are unsure whether a product is safe to use during your pregnancy, check out their Pregnancy Friendly section in their online shop or contact the Evolve Beauty customer service team.
Do Evolve Beauty products contain allergens?
Yes, some of the Evolve Beauty range do contain known allergens, and each product page contains a full ingredient list so you can check before buying. The main known allergens used by Evolve are:
- Gluten – which is only found in their Skin Savior Body Oil
- Tocopherol – some products also contain this soy derivative, so they are not suitable for people with a soy allergy
- Nuts – Evolve Beauty uses macadamia oil and almond oil in selected products
If you have an allergy not listed above or are unsure of any ingredients, contact the Evolve Beauty customer team for guidance.
