Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.

List of The Best Cruelty-Free & Vegan Lip Balms in 2019

This post may contain affiliate links.

If itโ€™s one thing thatโ€™s definitely harder to find vegan, itโ€™s gotta be a good vegan lip balm! There are countless options for cruelty-free lip balms that are not tested on animals but most of them contain beeswax; like ones from Jack Black, Mario Badescu, Burt’s Bees (owned by Clorox), COOLA, and Weleda which all contain beeswax.

The good news is that beeswax is very easy to spot in the ingredient list, itโ€™ll usually go by either two names, beeswax or cera alba. Keep in mind, synthetic beeswax can also partially be derived from animal sources.

Whether you’re looking to switch your non-cruelty-free lip balm (maybe one from eos, Chapstick, Nivea, Blistex, Aquaphor, or Vaseline) with one that is not tested on animals and doesn’t contain animal ingredients or if you’re just looking for a cruelty-free option to help with dry or chapped lips, then this list is for you!

Here is a round-up of the best cruelty-free and vegan lip balms that’ll help to naturally moisturize and nourish your way to kissable lips!

Lip Balms That Are Tested On Animals

With so many great cruelty-free and vegan lip balm options, you wonโ€™t feel the need to buy from a brand that supports, condones, or commissions animal tests on their products/ingredients!

Speaking of, hereโ€™s a list of brands that are not considered to be cruelty-free:

  • Vaseline (owned by Unilever)
  • EOS – claims to be cruelty-free with some vegan lip balm options, but their products are sold in-stores in mainland China. eos claims that since they manufacture their products in China, they are not required to test on animals. That is true, however, eos is still at risk of non-routine post-market animal testing which is often done without the company’s knowledge or consent. Read more why animal testing is still an issue for eos here.
  • Maybelline (owned by L’Oreal)
  • Chapstick (owned by Pfizer)
  • Nivea (owned by Beiersdorf)
  • Blistex – sold in mainland China where animal testing is required by law, read more about their animal testing statement here
  • Aquaphor (owned by Beiersdorf)

    We have just launched our vegan lip balm line called Smax Wax. I have been vegan for over 25 years and because of this, our product is cruelty-free, organic and, of course, free of any animal products.

    Would love to hear your opinion… Send us an email and we will send you some samples

    I was wondering the same about EOS. The package says โ€œnot tested on animalsโ€ but I believe it is sole in China.

    Chapstick states on their website they do not test on animals in the states?

    Vicky, Great site- I am new to you! I am confused by Eos being listed an a company that tests on animals. Their site says ,”eos does not test any of our products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask anyone to do so on our behalf.”
    If they were sold in China they would say such, as that would negate them saying they don’t ask anyone to test on their behalf- Correct? I enjoy their products and would like to continuing using them!
    Thank you!

โ€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.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
