Over the last year till February of this year, I had correspondence with Kuretake UK. The UK team are pretty terrific, always wrote back and passed my inquiries and information sheet along to the Japan Headquarters.( I just looked them up again, and they are no longer Kuretake UK, but Pirika UK).
I initially was assured that Kuretake was a cruelty-free company, but then they weren’t certain about it any longer. This was cited to probably be because of a language barrier. And the Japan Headquarters never replied since my last mail in February.
I consequently had to take the company of my list again, without this vital part of information.
I now contacted Kuretake JP directly and hope I will receive a clear reply for us all.
