Legislative Activism

Did you know that the entire life-cycle of Zosimos' products is certified cruelty-free? We proudly display the Leaping Bunny seal of approval, which signifies that our entire supply chain is cruelty-free, thus leading to our cruelty-free products. You can obtain a printable pocket guide from Leaping Bunny to identify certified companies when shopping. Visit the site here.

Recently, Zosimos was recognized for its endorsement of proposed legislation, the Humane Cosmetics Act. Virginia State representative, Jim Moran, sent out a press release discussing the "Cosmetics Industry Leaders Back Moran Bill to End Animal Testing" this week. You can find it here.

 

The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics, which grants the Leaping Bunny Certification, also hailed the certified companies supporting the Humane Cosmetics Act by listing them here.


Zosimos Botanicals is proud to be involved in this very important legislation.

Father's Day
Ever stop to wonder how cosmetics play a role in a man's life?
 
Generally, boys learn the art of application from a father or other important male figure in their life.  It's easy to figure out what goes where and why, but how often is the topic of ingredients discussed?
 
Have a chat with the man you love this Father's Day and see what you can learn about his personal care habits. Then, teach him a thing or two about what you know regarding safe products and practices.  After all, knowledge is one of the best gifts to give.
 
Father's Day is Sunday June 15th.
