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»

Is boscia Cruelty-free?

This post may contain affiliate links.

boscia is a skincare brand touting its products are preservative-free however I was more interested to know if boscia is cruelty-free or not, and whether they test any of their products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world.

Is boscia Cruelty-Free?

Answer:

No. Boscia is not cruelty-free; Boscia products are sold in Mainland China and therefore their products must be tested on animals to comply to China’s animal testig laws.

Boscia’s Animal Testing Statement (2017)

On boscia‘s website, it states:

“boscia does not directly conduct any testing of ingredients or products on animals or advocate animal testing on raw ingredients and/or finished formulas and endeavors to work with partners who share the same values. However, as we continue to expand into international markets, we are unable to control the testing methods used by outside governments.”

Boscia’s statement of expanding into international markets and their inability to control testing methods conducted by outside government implies that they are selling their products in countries that require animal testing by law. Currently, Mainland China is the only country that requires all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals.

This led me to directly ask boscia if they’re selling in China or not.

Is boscia Selling in China?

I received confirmation from boscia that they are indeed selling their products in China. I was also surprised to hear that none of their products contain any animal ingredients which makes them a rare example of a skincare brand that is vegan but not cruelty-free.

Related: What’s the difference between Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

Below is a snippet of my correspondence with boscia:

Unfortunately, we cannot definitely confirm or deny that any outside government has in the past, or will in the future conduct animal testing as part of their regulatory process.

We understand that unfortunately many brands are in fact, tested on animals. We do not advocate this practice.
Based on the above information and, in the spirit of complete transparency, boscia has recently removed all claims that state no animal testing on packaging, and all marketing materials.

We did launch the brand in China in 2014.

We can assure you that none of our products contain any animal by-products or any ingredients that are derived from animals.

Additionally, we use a clean room facility to formulate our products so there is no cross contamination either.

We hope this clarifies your question regarding animal testing.

boscia is NOT Cruelty-free

Unfortunately, boscia cannot be considered cruelty-free as their products are tested on animals by the Chinese authorities.

For cruelty-free alternatives to boscia, I recommend Yes To, Acure Organics, and Avalon Organics.

    Hi there! Can you get an update from Boscia on this? They claim they are officially cruelty free as of June 2018. I emailed but just got the regurgitation of the policy. I haven’t seen anyone post anything recent about them. Thanks so much and loooove your site!
