product safety

We understand that the trust our customers place in us begins with the ingredients we select, which is why we opt for those with a long-standing reputation for safety. Our commitment to organic ingredients means we naturally say no to harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and chemical preservatives.

Our responsibility extends beyond the careful selection of ingredients. We collaborate with accredited laboratories to conduct stringent testing on all our products. Through tests known as USP <61> and USP <62>, we analyze for microbial presence and growth, ensuring our products not only meet but often exceed the safety standards recognized by Health Canada and the FDA.

Our vigilance is applied throughout the entire lifecycle of our skincare line. By performing shelf-life testing we maintain a guarantee of stability and efficacy for the full 24-month shelf life of our products. This detailed attention to testing and quality ensures that every product that reaches our customers upholds the high standard of safety synonymous with the Plantd name.

At Plantd we are committed to creating safe cruelty-free cosmetics without the use of animal testing.  We don’t condone the use of animals for safety testing for cosmetics, and support modern non-animal methods that have been shown to better predict human responses than the animal tests they replace.

His early career as a Head of Product for The Body Shop and subsequent role as Global Manufacturing Director + Co-owner at Lush Cosmetics set the stage for a lifelong passion for creating products that are effective and safe and genuinely benefit people and the planet.  He considers himself a cosmetic chef, taking pride in crafting products with ingredients that are recognizable and easy to pronounce. 

With over twenty years dedicated to growing purpose-led businesses, our Co-founder and Director of Impact, Tricia Stevens firmly believes in the power of business as a force for good.  She believes strongly that centering relationships is key to building a brand that aims to have a long-lasting positive impact on communities.   Her commitment to animal welfare, social responsibility and environmental sustainability are at the heart of our brand.  Ethical practices are non-negotiable for her, ensuring transparency and integrity in all our decisions.
