(_;)Molton Brown products are nothing like anything sold in a poundshop.They are a British Company producing quality products from quality ingredients which have never been tested on animals.With Molton Brown it is a case of you get what you pay for, they use quality ingredients and this is evident in their products.Yes, as an everyday product they are out of reach for many; including myself, but i buy their gift sets for others, and occasionally treat myself to their Orange and Bergamont Hand Lotion; which i can wholeheartedly recommend.Don't judge something you clearly know nothing about.
Did you see the supershoppers episode about this brand, think it was on channel4 over christmas? They got a fan of molton brown to blind test the handwash vs a lidl/poundland one and he actually preferred the cheaper one and criticized the original one. It was only one person and totally anecdotal rather than scientific but still an interesting watch
I'm sure that MB is great, but unfortunately everything was tested on … I'm sure that MB is great, but unfortunately everything was tested on animals. Perhaps not by that brand. It's hard to believe to any firms these days, for example The Body Shop is against animal testing (banned already by EU), but they use ingredients tested on animals for her mother brand which is loreal (the owner) http://www.loreal.com:) I do not believe that Molton Brown has hand picked ingredients like herbs from British fields and forests. They obviously must have great marketing
I had no intentions of suggesting that they are one of the most ethically sound companies out there, I was merely trying to imply that they are of a 'different' quality to the items found in a poundshop.
Molton Brown were one of the early companies to stand up against animal testing.... but you are right and a bit of research does show that since the buyout.... the details of their policies get a little vague.
I don't find it surprising that so many products and their ingredients are tested on animals still... to be perfectly honest i don't think most consumers even pay it a second thought when they pick up a product, despite them being in 'theory' against animal testing and bad ethical practises.
I am increasingly trying to check the companies out who are behind the products I buy in order to improve my choices.
I think often people have no idea what goes on to produce the items they have in their homes, and indeed the chemicals that are being used. People trust the big brands and the big shops, whereas often the most ethical and most transparent companies are amongst the smaller ones.
The internet and people power is a great thing, and a lot of useful information is out there; on what is going into products..... and it does allow us to take some control over the impacts our choices have on the wider world.
