Is Andalou Certified Cruelty Free?

We share your concern that cosmetics and personal care products should not be tested on animals. Our company policy clearly states that we do not and will not test our products or ingredients on animals, nor have we asked or allowed others to do so on our behalf. Andalou Naturals is a proud partner of The Leaping Bunny Organization.

Are your products Non-Comedogenic and Hypoallergenic?

We sure are! Andalou products are both non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic. Our formulations are always hypo-allergenic for those with sensitive skin and non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores and the skin can breathe.

Is Andalou Gluten Free?

We take our responsibility to consumers very seriously, especially those with gluten sensitivity. To guarantee that our products are gluten free, we send everything to be third-party tested by the Food Allergy and Resource Program.

Is your packaging recyclable?

All Andalou cartons, bottles, jars, and tubes are widely recyclable and 100% BPA-free. Packaging is designed to be beautiful, but also to minimize the shipping materials necessary to protect our products during processing and handling. We decided to utilize widely recyclable PET plastic jars and the resin we use does not contain BPA, phthalates, dioxins, lead, cadmium or endocrine disruptors. We encourage our customers to follow local recycling guidelines and packaging when empty.

Are your products sustainable?

At Andalou, our commitment to creating true beauty through pure ingredients, innovative formulas, eco-friendly practices, and cruelty free standards guides us in all we do. Every aspect of our brand, our business, and our daily operations is dedicated to environmental responsibility and sustainable business practices and partnerships, taking a stand on issues that matter, and influencing positive change in the natural industry and beyond.

We were the first beauty brand to achieve Non-GMO Project Verified status because we believe that GMO crops and the dependency on pesticides that they create are in conflict with the wellbeing of the planet and of every single person. We believe in a farm-to-bottle connection and value knowing the origin of the ingredients we use. In addition to gathering domestic ingredients, we are proud to promote global sustainability through ethically sourcing fair-trade ingredients from all over the world.


Are your products pregnancy safe?

Our products are formulated to be gentle and safe for personal use. However, should there be any question or concern for a specific ingredient or allergic condition during pregnancy or while nursing, we recommend consulting with your physician for a thorough evaluation prior to use.

Are your hair products colour safe?

Our products do NOT contain sulfates, which is the primary cause of damage to colored hair. Sodium laureth sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfate, which are common ingredients in other hair care lines, can strip dyed hair of coloring, fading your hair every time you wash.

What is the expiration date of your products?

Primary packaging methods protect the formulas from sunlight and oxidation prior to purchase. Products are tightly secured and protected within tinted or opaque packaging. Additionally, skincare products are further protected within unit cartons. Normal use and storage will retain product freshness and integrity.

Non-OTC (aka, cosmetic) products are safe to use for 5 years from the manufactured date. We do not have an expiration date on these products but there is a jar icon on each package which communicates the “best used after opening” timeframe. For example 12M, suggests using the product within 12 months after opening.

You can determine a product’s manufactured date by locating the lot number. Lot codes are found on the primary package (tube crimp, jar bottom, on wrap label, etc.). While it may depend on the product, you can translate most manufacturing lot codes in the following way:

Manufacturing Lot Code Example: 1B01

1 = Numeric representation of the year (2011)

B = Alpha representing month of manufacture (see table
below)

01 = Numeric representing batch number ever made of the
product

1B01 = Manufactured in 2011, February, first batch ever made
of the product

Is Andalou Non-GMO?

As the 1st beauty brand to achieve Non-GMO Project Verified status, we believe that GMO crops and the dependency on pesticides that they create are in conflict with the wellbeing of the planet and of every single person. In order to achieve this verification, our team worked closely with our manufacturers and suppliers to rigorously confirm that over 200 source ingredients, as well as the manufacturing process for each ingredient, did not include GMOs of any kind.

The Non-GMO Project Verified seal recently received the highest ranking of meaningfulness from Consumer Reports. This is important because the verification process not only confirms that our brand exclusively uses non-GMO ingredients, it also guarantees that everything we print on our packaging is exactly as we say it is. We value knowing where our ingredients come from and are committed sharing that with you.
