Ladival is not tested on animals – a principle which applies throughout the production process from initial product development right through to the final manufacturing stage.
Ladival products are tested for skin tolerance and effectiveness (sun protection factor determination) by independent institutes and dermatology clinics that carry out ‘in vivo’ tests with human volunteers. All studies are carried out in adherence to the Declaration of Helsinki Principles and are approved by ethical committees.
Ladival products are manufactured by STADA Arzneimittel AG. For 120 years STADA has stood for the highest levels of quality in the supply of healthcare products. STADA commits itself to the protection of people and the environment and works continuously to improve procedures and processes in order to minimize negative environmental impact and health risks.
