Leaping BunnyThe Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ Leaping Bunny Program administers a cruelty-free standard and the internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo for companies producing cosmetic, personal care and household products. The Leaping Bunny Program provides the best assurance that no animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories, or suppliers.
GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)Chaé Manufacturing is a GMP compliant facility, which means it adheres to Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines, as overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. GMP regulations provide guidance for manufacturing, testing, and quality assurance in order to ensure that a food or drug product is safe for human consumption. GMP regulations require a quality approach to manufacturing, enabling companies to minimize or eliminate instances of contamination, mix-ups, and errors. This in turn, protects the consumer from purchasing a product, which is not effective or even dangerous.
Gluten-FreeGluten is a mixture of proteins found in wheat and related grains, including barley, rye, oat and all their species and hybrids and is often used as a stabilizing agent in cosmetics, hair products and other dermatological preparations. These “hidden” glutens can constitute a hazard for individuals with a gluten allergy.
State of the Art Water System (Rocky Mountain Pure)The best products start with a pure foundation, and at Chaé Manufacturing, that foundation is none other than our local Rocky Mountain pure water. From that high-quality base, Chaé’s water purification system uses latest state of the art Reverse Osmosis / Electrodeionization (RODI) purification technology to produce water with 3 ppm contaminates, free of heavy metals, microorganisms, and pharmaceuticals found in city water supplies. The water is so pure it must circulate 24 hours a day, seven days a week to prohibit bacteria formation and must not flow through metal pipes to avoid leaching the pipes.
WHAT WE’RE NOT
We Do NOT Test on AnimalsChaé Manufacturing does not conduct or commission animal testing on any product formulations. Chaé also goes through a stringent vendor and ingredient review process to ensure that ingredients aren’t purchased from manufacturers or suppliers that conduct, commission or are party to animal testing on said ingredient.
We Do NOT Use GMO IngredientsGenetically Modified Organisms are plants and other living organisms derived from modern molecular biotechnology techniques that alter the genetics of the organism. Many cosmetics and personal care products contain GMOs, and they’re often difficult to trace because of the various extracts and derivatives used in a single product. Chaé Manufacturing uses a stringent ingredient-level review process to ensure that ingredients are GMO-free.
We Do NOT Use Parabens, Formaldehydes, etc…Chaé Manufacturing is founded on the imperative, “Do No Harm.” Chaé does not use parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances in our product formulations as these ingredients have been linked to severe side effects including hormone disruption, pregnancy difficulty, birth defects, memory loss, joint pain, emotional imbalance, and more.
We Do NOT Use Age Accelerating ChemicalsWe do not use PEGs or other Ethoxylated Ingredients in our product formulations as these have been linked to hormone disruption, age acceleration and are potentially carcinogenic.
