Cradle to Cradle Innovation Products Institute

Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM is more than a recognized mark of product quality; it is a process that leads companies to make better products, better companies and better communities.

When a brand goes through the Cradle to Cradle certification process they are benchmarking their product’s design for safety to human and environmental health, sustainability of manufacturing processes and future use cycles. The brands provide a defined trajectory for optimizing product design and manufacturing processes and submits products to expert evaluation of product ingredients throughout the supply chain for toxicity hazards and risks in context of use. The personal care brands that have submitted their products for assessment include L’Oréal, Aveda and Method.

Alex&Tay is the first nail brand that has been assessed for Material Health by the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard and was awarded a Silver level Material Health Certificate. This ensures consumers that the product contains no substances known or suspected to cause cancer, birth defects, genetic damage, or reproductive harm. Alex&Tay has committed to full certification over the next two years.

Alex&Tay never tests products on animals nor do any of our vendors.

We only test products on the owners of the company, and we watch them very carefully to see if they have any issues, like their hands falling off – so far so good.
