Our commitment to quality
You can rely on Podoexpert
Our ambition is to achieve healthy and well-cared for skin. We take our own route towards reaching this goal, even though it might prove more difficult or involve higher costs at times. We believe that it is worth the effort to ensure the welfare of our fellow human beings, animals and the environment. The information below explains the principles followed by us during production, and also clarifies the meaning behind the individual symbols on the bottles.
Natural or vegan – what’s the difference?
With the variety of labels adorning product packaging, it’s no wonder consumers get confused. Although the term “vegan” refers to a product that does not contain any ingredients of animal origin, it doesn’t necessarily mean that no animal experiments were used in the production process. The term “natural cosmetics” is just as unlikely to provide this guarantee. And so it is important to know that Allpremed products do not contain any animal ingredients and they are not tested on animals either.
The German Animal Welfare Act has prohibited animal testing during development of cosmetic products since 1998. In addition, the sale of cosmetic products that have been tested on animals has been banned in the EU since 11 March 2013. Non-EU countries still make exceptions for individual ingredients, though.
When you purchase Podoexpert products you can rest assured that no animal had to suffer during production. Ingredients that are tested using animal experiments are categorically excluded from all our products. Our tolerance studies are conducted using volunteer participants in real-life conditions, allowing you to feel entirely comfortable in your own skin.
Skin care products that are sold in Germany are only allowed to contain ingredients that have been verified. But we go a step further: every Podoexpert product that is labelled “Dermatologically tested” has been put to the test in a thorough examination. The product is applied to the skin of the test participants (usually the lower arm) and covered up for three days, after which a dermatologist checks the area for skin irritation. This allows us to be absolutely sure that Podoexpert products are well tolerated even by sensitive skin.
Made in Germany
Our products are developed and manufactured in Germany. This not only secures jobs, but also reduces the amount of pollutants emitted during transport. It also means that you always have a point of contact nearby if you ever happen to be less than 100% satisfied with a product. After all, “Made in Germany” remains an expression of quality that we aspire to fulfil every day with fresh commitment.
