Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
_
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options 💜

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence
❁ The Water Cream

Cruelty-Free & Vegan Mascara Guide

This post may contain affiliate links.

The most frequently asked question I hear from cruelty-free consumers is What’s the best vegan mascara?! Everyone has been raving about Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara but the higher price point has got people asking for MORE vegan mascara options!

Vegan Mascara

Wait, what’s vegan mascara you ask? Mascara that is vegan means that the ingredients and final product were not tested on animals and it must not contain any animal-derived ingredients. There’s plenty of options for cruelty-free mascaras on the market but most of them contain beeswax and stearic acid that could possibly be derived from animal sources.

Want a mascara that won’t break the bank but at the same time, actually works? All of ELF mascaras are vegan (they have 10+ mascaras!) but these two seem to be the most-loved!

    I use the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. I’m looking for another vegan mascara because I want a Brown mascara and I don’t think Too Faced offers any Brown Mascaras.

    In my case, brown is a better color for everyday use. It makes my eyelashes look longer without making them look too unnatural. Black is more for dressing up.

    My favorite everyday mascara is Emani. 100% vegan and cruelty-free. However, although it stays on well for people with regular jobs, it is not waterproof. For my extreme-conditions job I need a good waterproof mascara that won’t tear my eyelashes out (like ELF), won’t be wishy-washy (changing ingredients once they have an established customer base, or avoiding answering questions about animal testing or other issues.), or won’t make me have an allergic reaction (all Pacifica products.) I need more info on waterproof vegan choices.

    I’ve been seeing Blinc mascara recommended by a lot of people, but they seem to have changed their recipe as all of them now contain beeswax. Just mentioning it in case you hadn’t come across it – I’m gutted that I won’t get to try it!

    Hey Vicky!

    I was wondering if you’ve checked out “essence”. I haven’t seen you mention it but I got it from Shoppers Drug Mart for like 3 dollars! They claim they’re cruelty free and vegan but you never know!

      Hey Frankie!
      I have reached out to Essence several times before and I haven’t been satisfied with the response I received from them. They keep referring to the EU animal testing laws where it is prohibited to test or sell any cosmetics and ingredients on animals within the EU.

      However, Essence isn’t just sold in the EU as we, Canadians, can buy their products at Shoppers! So when I requested for more information about how they monitor whether their products or ingredients are tested on animals OUTSIDE the EU, I never received a response back =(
