Products without animal testing - with a clear conscience

Products without animal testing - with a clear conscience

Products without animal testing? For us from STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! of course! None of our products have ever been tested on animals. The topic is particularly important to us and so we positioned ourselves from the start with a strong, ethical and green philosophy as a company that strictly rejects animal testing. We do not test on animals and do not commission any. Uncompromising.

While we are talking about STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! has always been on products without animal testing, only since March 11, 2013, according to Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009, has there been a complete ban on testing and marketing animal testing for cosmetics and their raw materials in the EU 1 . The law of the EU cosmetics regulation is aimed at the entire cosmetics industry, so that in principle everyone has to comply with these guidelines. Nevertheless, companies make use of exceptions and loopholes again and again. For us, this is an absolute no-go that goes against our values, our mission and our vision. We therefore focus on care without animal testing. Around 90% of our purely vegetable raw materials (oils, butter and extracts) are from controlled organic cultivation. And that for more than 10 years. 

Our selection includes cleaning and care products without animal testing such as rich face creams for different skin types, cleansing soaps and nourishing hand creams, effective shampoos and naturally scented shower gels. For our high-quality formulations, we use vegetable oils such as almond or thistle from Europe, extracts from kale, parsley or nettle, for example, and natural fragrances. In addition to animal testing, we also refrain from using silicones, parabens and raw materials based on mineral oil.

our mission

For us, products without animal testing is just one of many visions that we strive for with our range and that we work towards every day. Another focus of our work is to protect the most important resource on this planet: water. The global water shortage and acute water pollution are a real problem. Action is needed more than ever to make this planet a place worth living in for future generations. We are involved in various projects and let 1% of the proceeds flow into our GOOD WATER PROJECTS initiative. STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! is not just an advertising slogan that looks good, but a statement in the bathroom that reminds you every day to save water with us.

From Hamburg's warehouse district out into the world: Our products are developed, produced, filled and shipped in Germany. We do everything we can to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. This begins with the selection of the raw materials and only ends when the package has arrived at our customers with CO₂-compensated shipping. Our refill packs are a first step in the right direction - but we know that there is much more potential in our care products without animal testing. That's why every day we look for new ways to do even more for our environment.

Pamper body and soul every day. The formulations are tailored to different needs and care for the body from head to toe. We took our time with the well thought-out recipes and can now offer a range of cleansing and care products that are tailored to different skin types. Natural, biodegradable ingredients not only protect your skin, but also our valuable water resource.

Products from STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! our customers order directly in our online shop.

But how do products work without animal testing?

Our experts check all ingredients for skin compatibility. We carry out assessments based on various parameters such as legal requirements, specifications and studies, pay attention to the origin of our ingredients and try to source from Europe whenever possible.

In addition, we carry out dermatological tests on our products in cooperation with authorized and recognized institutes, which test the compatibility according to in-vitro or in-vivo methods in the test tube or on volunteers.

Facial care without animal testing - wellness retreat for your home

One thing was very important to us right from the start: We want to offer products that make a contribution to environmental protection from A to Z and are really effective at the same time. Our skincare range is an example of how we succeeded with this idea. Here, too, we rely on the power of nature. For us there is no question that we do without paraffins, parabens, silicones, preservatives and the like. Instead, we rely on organic vegetable oils from thistle and apricot, organic butters from shea or cocoa and extracts such as kale, parsley or carrot.

Our facial products are unisex and suitable for all skin types and have been dermatologically tested for good skin compatibility. The herbal active ingredients pamper the skin with many healthy nutrients and give it a lot of moisture. The light and rich textures of the products ensure a supple feeling all day long. We recommend the Parsley Kale Light Face Cream day cream for dry and normal skin. For dry to normal skin , Parsley Kale Rich Face Cream is an excellent choice.

What customers say:

“I use this cream at night and it's wonderful. It absorbs quickly, is not greasy and still provides a lot of moisture! I love her."

"Cares for the skin intensively and protects against drying out!"

The nurturing time out

In addition to daily care with our facial products, our Detox Face Mask provides that extra portion of care in between and helps stressed and tired skin with green mineral earth, kale extract and organic thistle and sunflower oil. After only 10 to 15 minutes, the creamy texture leaves the skin feeling supple and even fights impurities.

What customers say:

“Very good product and great service”

"Good product, pleasant on the skin and nice scent"

Pure care without water

Before our products are used, it is important to free the skin from all the stresses and deposits of the day. We have developed the Cleansing Bar for this purpose. A gentle facial cleansing, solid facial cleanser that does not contain any water as an ingredient. Instead, we rely on organic coconut oil and clay, for example. The ingredients ensure that all pores are thoroughly cleaned of dirt and make-up. Before applying the products, the facial cleanser is foamed, massaged into the damp facial skin with circular movements and removed with a little water or a damp cloth.

The application is a real treat for the skin both in the morning and in the evening and lets it really breathe a sigh of relief. The result is a radiant complexion that is impressive.

Our tip: Animal-free facial care to go! We have shrunk the range of products and packed them in mini format. The travel sizes fit perfectly in your luggage, so you can take them to any part of the world STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! can travel with you.

We put part of the proceeds from the products into the GOOD WATER PROJECTS initiative.

What customers say:

"Best products, best delivery. Definitely recommendable.”

"Great as always."

Fresh and full of energy into the day

With our products we do without everything that the body does not need. Our products only use ingredients of natural origin that are good for the body and the environment. What is there to discover with us? Shower gel, body lotion, soap and hand cream - a complete wellness program that increases our well-being every day and provides us with lots of fresh and invigorating energy.

Our soap cleans hands in a natural way and is particularly gentle and gentle on the skin. This is ensured by ingredients such as organic cucumber extract, sugar surfactants and organic acacia honey. With the two varieties Cucumber Lime Hand Soap and Lemon Honey Hand Soap there is no place for paraffins, silicone, microplastics or synthetic ingredients and fragrances.

The soap is available either in pieces or in a pump dispenser. The latter can be easily refilled with our cruelty-free care products using a 500 milliliter refill bag or 2 liter refill canister.

What customers say:

"A very nice product. The scent is great and I really like the idea behind it.”

"Fast shipping and a great product. The hand soap is mild and smells very pleasant.”

Smooth soft hands

Daily cleaning of our hands robs the skin of moisture and nutrients. It's good if you know you have a reliable care buddy at your side in this case. The products for the hands strengthen the skin and support the development of the natural skin barrier. When formulating it, we made sure that it was absorbed quickly without becoming greasy. It is ideal for everyday use and ensures skin is soft to the touch.

For the ingredients of the care products without animal testing Cucumber Lime Hand Balm and Lemon Honey Hand Balm, we have used organic shea butter, organic cucumber water and fragrance from essential oils, among other things.

There is no question that parts of these proceeds flow into the GOOD WATER PROJECTS initiative.

What customers say:

"We were able to test your products at the 25h Hotel Hamburg and fell in love."

"Super product, pleasantly unobtrusive smell, great care effect!"

Shower with a really good feeling!

Vegetable and nature-based ingredients ensure the perfect shower experience every day. Our products bring mild cleansing substances and pamper the body with nourishing active ingredients. Sugar surfactants, organic orange blossom water, organic lemon balm water and essential oils from cedar wood and sage are used in the cruelty-free shower gel. So nothing stands in the way of your daily, personal time-out.

The products give the skin an extra portion of moisture and support the preservation of the natural protective layer. Essential oils enchant the senses with scents of orange or cedar wood. The care products without animal testing are free of synthetic colourants, fragrances and preservatives as well as paraffins, silicones and microplastics.

For the sustainable use of our products, the pump dispensers can be refilled at any time with the 2 and 5 liter refill canisters.

What customers say:

"The product reached me quickly and was in perfect condition. I am a repeat customer. The shower gel is easy to spread, economical and smells good.”

"I got to know your products on vacation and since then the fragrance has always taken me on a little 'short vacation' while doing the laundry."

Creamy pleasure for skin

Body lotion is, of course, like all our products, manufactured. While shower gels clean effectively, a body lotion afterwards provides the skin with sufficient moisture and good nutrients. Ingredients such as organic shea butter, organic jojoba oil and organic sesame oil help to strengthen the body's own skin barrier and support regeneration. Tip: apply a generous amount of lotion to the skin directly after the shower when it is still a little damp. This allows the moisture to be locked in directly.

We have the body lotions available in three exquisite fragrances made from 100% natural-based essential oils. It goes without saying that it is completely free of silicones, paraffins and other mineral oil-based raw materials. With the products we support our initiative GOOD WATER PROJECTS.

What customers say:

"Finally! I finally found this page! Care products without chemicals. I bought body lotion, shower gel and shampoo.”

"The body lotion is easily absorbed into the skin, doesn't leave greasy residue and smells wonderful. It is particularly suitable for my dry skin and the effect lasts a good day.”

Sweeping hair with the power of nature

Not only the skin needs to be properly cared for. With our products, the hair can also enjoy the best herbal ingredients such as wheat protein hydrolyzate, coconut surfactant, rosemary and grapefruit. You will look in vain for silicones, paraffins or other raw materials based on mineral oil in our shampoo.

Instead, hair and scalp are gently cleaned with the natural ingredients and thoroughly freed from deposits. The high cleaning effect can already be achieved with a small amount of the shampoo, which is why the product is particularly economical and long-lasting. After shampooing, the hair is easier to comb, smells pleasantly fresh and is invigorated. Two types beguile the senses: Lavender Sandalwood Shampoo with the beguiling scent of sandalwood and organic lavender blossom extract and Rosemary Grapefruit Shampoo with grapefruit and organic rosemary oil.

We offer the shampoo in a pump dispenser or as a solid piece of Waterless Shampoo Bar , which we completely dispense with adding water to in the production process.

What customers say:

"Absolute excitement! Keep it up."

“I have bought the shampoo before and I am still completely satisfied! It makes hair incredibly smooth and supple. Always my pleasure."

Nourishing care for soft hair

A shampoo effectively cleanses the hair. To give it that extra boost of care, a conditioner should always be used after washing your hair. The formula strengthens the hair structure, makes the hair soft and supple and pampers it with lots of moisture. In addition, the hair care closes the cuticle layer that was opened by the hair wash. A formulation of organic coconut oil, wheat protein hydrolyzate and essential oils comes into the pump dispenser. We have the varieties Lavender Sandalwood Conditioner and Rosemary Grapefruit Conditioner to go with our shampoo.

The products nourish the hair in depth and give it vitality and shine, naturally without silicones, paraffins or other mineral oil-based raw materials.

Fixed piece anyone? We also developed the conditioner in solid form without any water as a Waterless Conditioner Bar with broccoli seed oil and coconut oil - what a brilliant idea!

What customers say:

"Great scent and super nourishing!"

"Makes the hair very soft and it smells really good."

In addition, the animal-free toothpaste supports the self-cleaning powers and ensures fresh breath.
