Hello there,

here is a summary of the reply I received from Edding:

Principally, all Edding products consist of synthetic material and chemically treated material. This means, it is very unlikely that markers and other products should contain any components or traces of an animal source, but the company cannot give a guarantee that they absolutely are so.

According to Edding, at the moment it is still difficult to impossible to get transparency throughout the material supply chain, but they are committed to keep on working to obtain clarity on the specifics.

The company does not test on animals and demands from their material suppliers not to test on animals. Nevertheless, they cannot guarantee that ingredients of a finished product haven’t been tested on animals, if REACH-Regulations require so.

Here is my information sheet, that I send out to all the companies.
