Hampton, Va. (PressExposure) May 04, 2009 -- Online bath and spa products store Castle Baths (http://www.castlebaths.com) has successfully passed the rigorous requirements of the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) screening process and has been awarded the Leaping Bunny seal of approval. With the approval, Castle Baths has joined the elite list of companies which do not test their products on animals. The CCIC Leaping Bunny seal strongly substantiates the fact that no animal testing is used in any phase of product development by Castle Baths, its laboratories or suppliers.
The Leaping Bunny seal is an internationally accepted seal of approval for cosmetics that are produced without animal testing and guarantee compliance with the Human Cosmetics Standard. The compliance with this standard is controlled regularly in an autonomous audit. In addition to being able to display the Leaping Bunny logo on the website, Castle Baths, with the approval, will also appear on the online version of the Compassionate Shopping Guide found at http://www.leapingbunny.org and the updated versions of all guides used by the member groups forming the CCIC.
"We are honored to receive the seal of approval from the internationally recognized organization which is fiercely protecting animal rights", says Castle Baths owner, Laura Thomas. "Our products have been non-toxic, pro environment and animal friendly since day one. When Castle Baths started out, I had pledged that nothing and no one would be harmed in anyway, not while making the products, neither while using them. Today, our efforts have been rewarded in the form of the prestigious seal which we are proud to display on our website", she continues.
Headed by Laura Thomas, Castle Baths is an online store for spa products, beauty, skin care and bath product lines. All products offered are handmade from completely natural ingredients, herbs and essential oils. Body moisturizers, soaps, essential oils, foot care products, bath oils, bath salts, body mist, etc., are available at reasonable rates.
"The screening process was very strict and lengthy, but I cannot say that it wasn't expected. After all, the approval decision is not made lightly!", comments Laura. "We were always positive that Castle Baths will be approved, but that did not, in anyway, dampen the excitement and happiness we felt once the news was confirmed", she adds.
Castle Baths is also awaiting approval from Green America, post which the online spa products store will be marked as a company which conducts business according to standards that reach beyond contemporary practices in addressing the needs of consumers, employees, the community and the environment.
