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!

Our private label Sephora Collection and Sephora Originals (Hello Kitty, Kat Von D, Formula X, and Pantone) are cruelty free (meaning that the products have never been tested on animals).

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

It a general rule for this forum that no outside links can be posted. It has nothing to do with you personally.

Ok - thanks

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Wait does ysl, guerlain, MJ test on animals?

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

(0) Hearts

Paula's Choice includes YSL and Guerlain on the 'brands that test on animals' list. Marc Jacobs isn't on the test or don't test lists - possibly because the makeup is so new?

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

(0) Hearts

Marc Jacobs fragrances test on animals (owned by Coty), so I'll bet his makeup is too, unfortunately.

I had a strong feeling the other day to not purchase that ysl lipstick I was looking at...Dang it! Guess I need to go return it to not support them! :smileysad:

o..

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Smashbox and Juicy test on animals. Hate to break it to you, but so does the Sephora brand. Here is Sephora's (and the others) company policy:

 

Sephora does not test Sephora Collection or Sephora Original products on animals, and we do not ask others to do so on our behalf, unless it is required by law in specific countries where we operate.

 

"Unless it is required by law" means a company DOES test on animals.  Also, I just read that Sephora brand sells in China. 

 

Miabt, the beauty advisor answering the questions is lying to all of us.  I am reporting her.

Strange when I replied "thanks" to you, it showed up under my name instead - thank you!

Thank you!

Thanks so much!

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!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

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!" 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

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. 

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.  

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

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

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

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? 

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

(0) Hearts

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

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

(0) Hearts

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!).
