Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

[ Edited ]

LIST UPDATED 6/21/14 - Sephora also suggests contacting brands directly for more information and details than we have provided here if needed :smileyhappy:

 

Hello lovely BTers!! We hear you and we've been working to update the previous post Tiffany did in 2011 regarding Animal Testing. Since we carry over 200 other brands, the ones we've listed below have confirmed that they do not test on animals and/or we’ve confirmed the following brands on the PETA or Leaping Bunny list.  Please keep in mind that the sites may update their information more frequently than we do, but we will try our best to keep it up to date!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Thank you for the tip, I didn't realize. 

 

And yes, I do encourage people to look at the list of companies made by Paula's Choice, which is mostly based on information provided by the National Anti-Vivisection Society. This is a difficult thing to research, as companies often use language which is market-friendly but obfuscates the matter. I encourage people to look at a variety of resources/lists in making a decision on which companies to buy from. 

 

Thanks, ladymeag!

Thank you for providing that information!

Off-site links aren't allowed here, so this will likely be removed. You can say something like, "Paula's Choice has a great list on animal testing and companies involved - Google for it or PM me if you want a link!"

Urban Decay is owned by L’Oreal which is definitely not cruelty free. Just an FYI. 

 

It's worth checking leapingbunny dot org to see who is list there. 

DTalksAll

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

True, but L'Oreal is actually one of the leaders in testing alternatively. They've been doing it for over 20 years, on fake tissue samples. Check out their web page & then do a bit more research on it. I had a response on the other animal testing thread that had more details, but I can't find it right now.

That may be true, but L'Oreal 1000% still tests on animals.  

ShinyMagpie

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Okay. I'll have a look. Thanks. :smileyhappy:

I wonder if this list takes into consideration the companies that may not directly test on animals, but contract out to other companies that do or purchase ingredients from third party vendors that do? 

raquelcali

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

This list is totally inaccurate.  MANY of these companies test, including Sephora!

Leaping Bunny program companies do account for 3rd-party testing; they also do on-site audits. PETA's wording is that companies must sign a statement that they don't "conduct, commission, or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future."

 

Companies that Sephora carries that have signed on to Leaping Bunny are: BITE Beauty, Tata Harper, Urban Decay, WEN (I may have missed some, though!).

IAmLadyLiterary

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

This list does not take that into consideration as Stila does third party testing.

IAmLadyLiterary

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

My question is which of those companies are sold in China because that takes them off of the cruelty free list.  For example, smashbox like MAC sell in China which makes them not cruelty free.  And I have read reports confirming Stila does 3rd party animal testing.  

 

There are so many on the list I could comment that sell in China but the big one is the Sephora brand.  It is sold in the Chinese stores, therefore it is not cruelty free.

Google Big name Beauty Brands sell in China Daily Mail and an article listing companies who sell in China will come up. The companies they list that sell in Sephora are L'Occitane, Clnique, Lancome, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and Estee lauder. Sephora brand also sells in China.

It doesn't matter to me if a company states that they are looking for alternatively test. The fact of the matter is that they DO test, and you know a company by their actions, and these greedy, amoral companies will do anything to make more money.

Surely making the effort to investigate other options is worth some respect! It's certainly better than doing nothing. eventually that effort will pay off and at least some companies will implement alternative testing methods. But someone has to start the ball rolling on the research first.

A lot of the information here is false.  

Plantgarden

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Nooooo.  No thank you,.... :smileysad:   

This list is not accurate.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Brands are able to enter the Chinese market without subjecting their products to animal testing. However, they pay HUGE taxes and tariffs when importing their product, resulting in higher costs on the Chinese market. Take Fresh Sugar Lip Balm for example: Fresh does not test on animals (I have confirmed this with one of the brand reps), but they are in China, and their lip balm sells for the equivalent of around $200US.

So Fresh is cruelty free, there is no testing done on their products even though they are in China, is this correct?

raquelcali

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

If they are sold in China they must test.  Also, they are owned by LVMH.  And they are not on the gocrueltyfree.org site. They may have lied to you, which has happened to me me multiple times.  Companies lie all the time about their animal testing policies.  If you have more info on Fresh, please post.  Thanks.
