Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

The Best Natural, Organic, Vegan Mascaras

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping and finding a cruelty-free, vegan, and natural mascara have been made easier with this shopping guide list!

Why natural and organic ingredients matter in mascara?

Conventional mascara contains dangerous chemicals and when used daily, these toxins can get into our skin and can lead to all sorts of health problems. Some harmful ingredients that we should avoid in our tube of mascara include parabens, synthetic dyes, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and polybutene.

Why cruelty-free and vegan mascara matters?

Equally important, we want to make sure our natural and organic mascara isn’t harming any animals as well! That’s why finding a brand that doesn’t test on animals and a mascara that doesn’t contain any animal-derived ingredients like carmine, lanolin, or beeswax will help to save animals from harm and suffering.

Please note: most natural and organic mascara brands contain beeswax as an ingredient, making them not vegan. But the mascaras mentioned below are beeswax-free and 100% vegan!

List of Natural & Vegan Mascara

Now let’s get into the list of natural, organic, and vegan mascaras! All the products mentioned below are 100% vegan and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients and do not contain commonly known harsh chemicals and ingredients. They’re also great for those with sensitive eyes or for contact lens wearers.

I’ve listed the products below in the order of affordability to high-end.

    Hi,

    FYI the Ilia mascara contains beeswax making it not vegan.

      Hi Kyra,

      Hmm.. that’s interesting. I think they reformulated their mascara since the publication of this post and unfortunately, the new formula contains beeswax. The wand also looks a little different so I think this may be an entirely new product and they’ve stopped production of the vegan version. Thanks for letting me know! =) I’ve updated this list and made a note that it’s no longer vegan.

    Hi There!

    I was looking at your website for a Cruelty-Free and Vegan Water-Resistant Eyeliner and Concealor.

    It wasn’t clear if the mascaras under, “Best-Natural-Organic-Vegan_mascaras” are also cruelty free?

    Can you make a recommendation for a good CF, Vegan and Water Resistant Eyeliner and Concealor?

    All the best,

    Carissa G

      Hi Carissa,

      Yes! All the products and brands that I suggest are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. I exclusively only use cruelty-free and vegan products so you can be sure anything I recommend or suggest on my blog is also CF and Vegan! =)

      I love Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, which is waterproof. Or if you’re looking for one that has more natural ingredients, then I would recommend 100% Pure’s Long Last Liquid Eye Liner.

      For concealers, here are some cruelty-free and vegan options available at Sephora: https://ethicalelephant.com/cruelty-free-vegan-concealers-sephora/

      If you don’t mind parent company animal testing, then Tarte’s Shape Tape Concealer is highly recommended. Tarte is cruelty-free but they are owned by a parent company, Kose, that unfortunately does still test on animals which some consumers feel that by purchasing Tarte cosmetics, they are indirectly funding more animal tests done by their parent company. But others don’t have a problem with this and choose to keep buying from Tarte because they are cruelty-free. Not sure what your stance is, but thought I’d give you some options =)

β€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.”― Marc Bekoff
