The Scotch Stance on Social Responsibility

Looking out for animal welfare

We are proud supporters of animal welfare – which is why we are committed to being a 100% fur-free brand.

ANGORA & OTHER RABBIT HAIR

As furry rabbits are not kept in a species-appropriate manner, rabbit hair and angora wool must not be used in Scotch & Soda products.

ANIMAL TESTING

Scotch & Soda does not support animal testing for cosmetic products. All our cosmetic products – or the raw materials used in their formulation – are not tested on animals.
bla

CASHMERE & MOHAIR

Cashmere and mohair used in Scotch & Soda products must be sourced from producers with good animal husbandry. From the FW19 collection onwards, Scotch & Soda will no longer use mohair.
bla

ENDANGERED SPECIES

Any materials derived from endangered species appearing on either the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) or the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) lists must not be used in Scotch & Soda products.
bla

FEATHERS & DOWN

Any feathers or down used in Scotch & Soda products must be sourced as a by-product of the meat industry (excluding foie gras production) and from producers with good animal husbandry. No feathers or down must be harvested through live plucking. Where possible, we will replace feathers and down with Primaloft, a patented synthetic thermal insulator.

FUR

Real fur or pelts must not be used in Scotch & Soda products. An exception is fur products (hair on hides) from cows, pigs, goats and sheep if they are sourced as a by-product of the meat industry and from producers with good animal husbandry.
bla

LEATHER & SKIN

Any leather or skin must be sourced as a by-product of the meat industry and from producers that practice good animal husbandry. Leather or skin must not be obtained whilst the animal is still alive or from aborted animals. Skins from wild-caught animals and exotic animals must not be used in Scotch & Soda products.
bla

WOOL

Wool must be sourced from producers with good animal husbandry. Merino wool used in Scotch & Soda products must not be sourced from farmers who practice mulesing.
