Sibu Beauty Receives PETA Certification
Sibu Beauty, maker of sea buckthorn berry based beauty and wellness products was awarded PETA certification as a cruelty-free company.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
Sibu Beauty, the maker of 100% natural beauty and wellness products based on sea buckthorn berry and at the forefront of introducing the Himalayan superfruit to the Western world, is now a part of PETAÃ¢s cruelty-free program.
According to Sibu Beauty President, Peter McMullin, Ã¢Å“Since the inception of our company a few years ago our philosophy was to make natural products that were clean, safe and environmentally sustainable. This is accomplished through our harvesting and manufacturing processes. Our berries are sourced from Tibet through a fair-trade agreement that originates with our corporate and personal commitment to employ local workers and also leave the beauty of the natural environment unscathed. The miraculous berries are collected by shaking the bushes and only the ripened fruit falls onto burlap ground cloths. This is the same method that the indigenous people have used for centuries to harvest sea buckthorn. Shortly after being harvested, the berries are processed and then shipped to the U.S. where the finished products are made. We made the decision early-on to develop a line that was free of parabens, gluten, and dairy and was cruelty-free.Ã¢
McMullin added, Ã¢Å“Being a part of the PETA program and having the ability to use the pink bunny emblem on our product line was extremely important to us and will stand alongside our certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a non-profit organization that is devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the worldÃ¢s forests.Ã¢
Sibu Beauty offers a complete line of sea buckthorn based natural and USDA organic products that are nourishing to the skin, hair and nails. Sea Buckthorn is packed with a nutrient-rich combination of over 190 bio-actives, vitamins and is a powerful source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9, as well as a rich source of the elusive, naturally occurring essential fatty acid, Omega-7 (Palmitoleic acid), which is vital to collagen and mucus membrane production.
