HR Products is pleased to announce that its anti-bad-mood sprays™ have been certified by the Vegan Awareness Foundation. Each mood-lifting spray – The Antidote for Ego™, Apathy™, Passive™, and Aggressive™ – will now feature the “Certified Vegan” logo.
The logo is administered by The Vegan Awareness Foundation (official name of Vegan Action), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about veganism and to assist vegan-friendly businesses.
The logo is a registered trademark, similar in nature to the kosher mark, for products that do not contain animal products or byproducts and that have not been tested on animals. The Certified Vegan logo is easily visible to consumers interested in vegan products and helps companies purchasing wholesale products to recognize a growing market for cruelty-free products.
The Antidote for Ego™ and the anti-bad-mood sprays will be featured at the upcoming BUST Magazine Vegan Craftacular in New York City. The Craftacular is part of The Seed, a vegan expo featuring chefs Kath Freston, Fran Costigan and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Show dates are June 16-17, 2012. More information about the events can be found on The Seed’s website.
“It costs more to do things this way,” says HR Products’ CEO Heidi Rettig. “Especially if you’re a small company. But at the end of the day, I go to bed knowing I’ve put something out in the world that makes people happier – not just because of the essential oils inside each spray. I make products that won’t compromise the health of customers, their families, pets, or the environment. I make products that people fall in love with and can’t live without.”
HR Products’ full statement on animal testing is available on the aromatherapy company’s website. A recent interview with Heidi Rettig on All Things Vegan radio can be downloaded here.
Our anti-bad-mood sprays are tested on people, not animals.
HR Products LLC does not test products on animals or
use source materials and ingredients that have been tested on animals.We are certified Vegan by Vegan Action.
The ingredients in each anti-bad-mood spray are natural and safe to use. Essential oils are organically sourced, wherever possible. Unlike most commercial room sprays, our products are free of formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and phthalates. They are hand-blended in Winchester, Virginia.
Each mood lifting spray is minimally packaged. Our lightweight aluminum bottle has a label printed on a biodegradable, synthetic “paper.” The bottle tops are 100 percent recyclable. Our website provides instructions for cleaning the bottles and suggestions for reuse.

That feels so much better than a big paycheck.
