This company uses mica in its mineral cosmetics, and has no information on its website on its mica sourcing policy. Much of the world's mica comes from Jharkhand and Bihar in India, where child labour has been found in the supply chain. The company says it audits and insists on accreditation for all suppliers and does not source any products from India, but the company could not provide specific information regarding the source of raw materials used by all their suppliers.

Three brands owned by this company (Australis, Mode and Innoxa) comply with Choose Cruelty Free's non-animal testing criteria and are listed on CCF preferred products list. However the company as a whole is not accredited. Heritage Brands is the Australian distributor for brands owned by companies who do test on animals, such as Revlon.
