Are your products vegan?
At Neal's Yard Remedies, we do not use any ingredients that are obtained from the slaughter of animals. However, in some of our products we do use honey, beeswax, lanolin and propolis. These ingredients are clearly stated on the product's label and are all obtained from ethical sources. We also use glycerine and lecithin; however, these are from plant sources. Please click here to see the full list of our vegan products!
Are all of your products 100% organic?
Our products contain a high proportion of organic ingredients and our aim is to use as many organic ingredients as possible while still ensuring our products are effective and pleasant to use. There can be several reasons why some ingredients may not be certified organic including the use of wild crafted ingredients which cannot be certified. Please see our About Us page for more information.
Are any of your products safe during pregnancy?
Although there are no specific contraindications to any of our cosmetic products during pregnancy, some of our products contain essential oils, and with reference to Tisserand & Balac's "Essential Oil Safety" there is no evidence of them as likely to be a problem, however we do appreciate that aromatherapists have varying views on the use of essential oils in pregnancy.
For example, some aromatherapists would recommend not using oils such as basil and sage. They are present in very small amounts in the following products and it is extremely unlikely that any harm would be caused and this is a very precautionary measure. With this in mind however, you may chose to avoid the following products:
Yarrow & Comfrey Moisturizer
Ready to Roll - Study & Travel
NYR Men's Range
Ginger & Juniper Warming Oil
Invigorating Toning Oil
We would not recommend the use of herbs medicinally during pregnancy or breastfeeding - you would need to visit a registered Medical Herbalist to ascertain which herbs would be suitable for you. Therefore, all herbal remedies for internal use should be taken only with the advice of a Medical Herbalist. Your midwife will be able to advise you on herbs that would be suitable in the last few weeks of your pregnancy to tone your uterus in preparation for childbirth.
Do any of your products contain genetically modified ('GM') ingredients?
Don't worry! We truly believe in Safe Cosmetics which means you won't find any GM ingredients in our products. Not enough is known about the long term implications of use and your safety always comes first!
Do you test any of your products on animals?
We don't test any of our products on animals and never have; we think it's unnecessary and cruel. We prefer to rely on our botanical and technical expertise to ensure our products are effective and safe. Instead of testing on animals, which have no say in the matter and can't tell us what they think, we give our new products to human volunteers (through an independent company) who are more than happy to test them and give us feedback. If you have any additional questions please contact us via email at email@example.com or toll-free at 1-855-495-4958.
Do your products have expiry dates?
Yes, many our products have an expiry date which you can find clearly printed on the label. The expiry date is an indication of the useful life of the product as certain qualities of our ingredients cannot be guaranteed beyond that date. We want you to be 100% happy each time you use your Neal's Yard Remedies products so we recommend using your products before the best before date.
How do I purchase a Neal's Yard Remedies Canada gift card?
You can purchase our gift cards in any denomination either in person at in-store or online at here. Gift cards can be redeemed in-store or online. If you purchase a gift card online you will receive an email with the code for the gift card, you will not receive a physical card.
Do you accept returns on gift cards?
Neal's Yard Remedies gift cards cannot be returned or redeemed for cash. If you would like to return an item that was purchased with a gift card, the amount will be returned to you via store credit.
Do you charge tax on gift cards?
There is no tax charged on gift card purchases. If you purchase a gift card in addition to other products, tax will only be applied to the product purchased.
Is there a recycling program for your bottles and jars?
Bottles and jars can be returned in-store for a $0.25 credit towards their next order. Otherwise, we encourage you to recycle the bottles and jars at your local recycling depot. At this time there is no way to send the bottles back to be re-used as the environmental impact of shipping them back to the UK to be re-filled is greater than simply recycling them locally.
