Hello lovely BTers!! We hear you and we've been working to update the previous post Tiffany did in 2011 regarding Animal Testing.

What about desigual do they test on animals ?

Does MAKE-UP FOREVER test on animals?

ladymeag

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

MUFE says: "Thank you for your interest in MAKE UP FOR EVER. We do not test products on animals. The laboratories and suppliers we work with do not conduct animal testing on the products or ingredients they create or supply on our behalf; except when required by law." 

What this is means is: they sell in China and Chinese law requires testing. They're skirting the issue and don't directly test themselves, but they do allow it so they can sell in China's large-and-growing market (unlike Urban Decay, OCC, and a few other brands.)

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

So, this also means that the Sephora brand, which in an earlier post in this thread, was promoted as cruelty free.  The Sephora brand is sold in China.

Ladymeag, thank you for the detailed explanation. I think sometimes it gets confusing when you read a company statement like that but don't realize the requirements for testing in other countries.  And it's a company's choice to sell in a country that requires testing. I am glad some have chosen to forgo profits in a growing market to stay cruelty free. :smileyhappy: And that's who gets my business.

Yayyy! A list of gluten free things! Me and my celiac body thanks you! :smileywink:

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Be sure to check ingredients lists regularly. Clinique snuck a bunch of wheat into their products at one point and it wasn't an easy thing to spot immediately. Keep in mind, as well, that this list is not frequently updated.

I just spent two hours in my local store trying to chose animal friendly products.  I was educating the employees.  Just because a brand looks cruelty free doesn't mean it is.  Look at the brand they are owned by.  I keep the 'peta cruelty free' list on my phone and refer to that.

 

And Clarins does test on animals.

 

Here is the info they sent me.

 

 

In 1987, Clarins was the first French company to ban animal testing. Since plants offer a mine of resources and infinite riches, Clarins also banned the use of cellular extracts of animal origin in 1991. Consumer's health and safety is of paramount importance for Clarins and thus we are committed to complying with all applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold to make sure that we deliver the safest and most appreciated products possible. To do so, we do not conduct animal testing on our finished products or ingredients except in exceptional cases, when required locally by law. Clarins commitment to the protection of animals is also the reason why testing on animals no longer takes place. Clarins fully supports the development and global acceptance of non-animal testing alternatives. Product safety control is carried out on cell culture in accordance with substitute in vitro methods that are internationally acknowledged and approved by experts.

We do conduct business in China therefore must comply with local law. Hope this helps!

Thanks, Clarins

This list is not accurate.  For example, Clarins does test on animals.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Hi all, 

 

So I've been reading that the Chinese Food and Drug Administration has proposed the requirement for animal testing of domestically manufactured ordinary products be abolished by June of 2014, which includes shampoos, perfumes, and skincare. Still not pertaining to ALL cosmetics. But they have also proposed that the cosmetic industry now have options similar to those in the Cosmetic Product safety Report of the EU Cosmetic Regulations which allows companies to use the toxicological profile of the ingredients in their products to assess the safety of their cosmetics for human use. Just this past March the EU passed regulations that ban animal testing of cosmetics sold n their countries. China does have a way to go til they get to that point, but at least now all those companies that had to choose between compromising their stance on animal cruelty and selling in China will be able to enter that lucrative market. All those petitions signed are beginning to pay off. Only two years ago we began to really demand the country change its policies and here we are.

 

Although, I do need to point out that by now we would have been much farther than just being thrown a bone if more companies would take a firm stand against China's cruel practices and boycott the country. However, the bottom line is more important for many companies than the poor bunny that's suffering needlessly. After all, medical science has proven that animal testing does not actually tell us anything about the safety of a substance for human use. Furthermore, science has a variety of advanced technologies alternate to animal testing that are far more accurate. It's time we end these barbaric practices.We can do our part to force the evolution of countries like China by boycotting companies that show us their bottom line is more important than endangering innocent animal lives.

I personally contacted Laura Mercier Company to ask if they are cruelty free. I have realized that many companies state that they do not test their product on animals, but they may be hiding the fact that they test their ingredients on animals and or sell their products to China so I decided to contact them myself. I have recently switched all my household items, and beauty items as well as toothpaste, etc to cruelty free ONLY.

 

Laura Mercier emailed me back with this statement, "Hello, Laura Mercier is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and bringing to market products that comely with applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold. We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf. We evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels. We do not sell our products in China."

 

I was so happy and relieved to hear this considering Laura Mercier is one of my favorite brands for face products and is one of the only ones that doesn't break me out. Has anyone else contacted them and gotten the same response? I contacted them April 3rd, 2014 so this is very recent. I just want to make sure I am reading this information correctly and that Laura Mercier is a good brand to buy!! As far as I am concerned it is! No ingredients and no China WOOHOOO!

 

Also, does anyone know of any perfumes sold at Sephora or Nordstrom that are cruelty free? I love my Chanel, but they sell in China :smileysad:

I wonder if this is just semantics though. I'm nervous about the "We do not sell our products in China." line. I'm just cautious because I recently heard that they WOULD be selling in China so while they don't TODAY, they may be selling by the summer, you know? I wish they had said something like, "We do not sell our products in China, and have no plans to do so for the foreseeable future while current regulations remains intact." I'd feel a lot easier about buying from them. I just feel like they've been dodgy about people asking them the China question.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Hi there VirtuallyVegan! I see that you're new here - we've discussed several times around here that this thread is out of date and inaccurate. :smileyhappy: Just so you know, links to non-Sephora websites will be removed by the moderators, especially ones that are self-promotional.

Are you dry, combination, or oily skin? Also, are you looking for light, medium or full coverage?

Is it true MAC test on animals ? T_T

MAC used to be cruelty free but has since changed its stance. Money is more important than animals to them. THey have since introduced themselves to the Chinese market, where it is required by law for cosmetics, among other things, to be tested on animals.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I have to give recognition to those who truly research their products before purchase! It makes me happy to know they there are, in fact, people out there with a strong moral compass willing to make sacrifices (even small ones) to make a difference in the way animals are treated. GO YOU!
