Queen Street Apothecary Frequently Asked Questions

Are Your Products Really Vegan? 

ABSOLUTELY 100% Vegan. There are no animal products or animal by-products used in any product sold on our website and in our range. 

Do You Test On Animals? 

No product in our range has been tested on any animals. We test our range on humans. We are a dedicated cruelty-free, vegan, natural skincare brand and will not condone any form of animal testing - ever. 

We do not have a 'parent' company that tests on animals. We choose not to sell in countries in which animal testing is a requirement. 

I Have Sensitive Skin, Can I Use Your Products? 

Whilst everyone's skin is different, the products in our range are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. However, if you are concerned we recommend patch testing, and speaking with your skin doctor. You can find the full ingredient list on each product listing.

Are Your Products Safe for Pregnant and/or Breastfeeding Mamas?
