Dear Miss,

I acknowledge receipt of your mail from 11/18/2011 and I thank you for sending it.

Further to your request, I am pleased to answer to you.

Regarding perfume:

Guerlain perfumes are rich compositions of many different ingredients that combine to give each fragrance its own unique and multi-faceted aura. Some of these ingredients release an extremely sensual animal note (or facet) on the skin.

Our perfumes contain no animal ingredients. In keeping with its desire to comply with applicable legislation and regulations, our Guerlain perfumer have pursued a relentless effort to find authorized substitutes for the forbidden ingredients of animal origin.

Thanks to the broad palette of resources available to the perfumer, there are several possible solutions:

– Some molecules and bases have the same effect as the animal substances.
– Furthermore, natural raw materials extracted from flowers or wood can impart a sensual note comparable to the animal ingredients traditionally used.

In other words, there are myriad ways to preserve the sensual aura of Guerlain perfumes without incorporating prohibited ingredients into their formulae.

Regarding cosmetics:

For several years, Guerlain refuses to use animals derived ingredients, more particularly derives from sheep, bovine or caprine
Only some derivatives have been kept because they concern non protected species
ƒ{ Carmine
ƒ{ Sea extracts and derivatives
ƒ{ Beeswax
ƒ{ Honey
ƒ{ Royal jelly
ƒ{ Lanolin and its derivates*

*For the latest, a certificate of origin will be required by Guerlain

Moreover, you are asking about the tests on animals in the elaboration of the Guerlain products.

I inform you that Guerlain does not perform any test on animals for the products put on the market.*
Guerlain, as a responsible brand, respects the European legislation as well as the regulations worldwide.
Our commitment is in compliance with legislation, product safety and respect for animal life.

Thank you for your interest in our brand.

Yours faithfully,

*) Anmerkung: Die von mir hervorgehobenen Textteile lassen meiner persönlichen Meinung nach nicht auf völlige Tierversuchsfreiheit dieser Marke/dieses Unternehmens schliessen. Es gibt daher auf Once Upon A Cream keine Produktvorstellungen dieser Marke/dieses Unternehmens.
