SB 241, sponsored by Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) and signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker on August 9, prohibits the import or sale of any cosmetic if the final product or any ingredient was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.
Last year, California became the first state to enact β€œhumane cosmetics” legislation, followed by Nevada in June. Illinois’ new law provides additional incentives for cosmetics companies to invest in non-animal alternatives to help them stay competitive in a changing global market while sparing animals from painful tests.

Find Your Signature Scent with DefineMe Fragrance – Cruelty-Free & Vegan

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping for a cruelty-free and vegan fragrance can sometimes be tricky because perfume makers are not legally required to label and include a list of all the ingredients contained in each bottle of perfume. That’s because fragrances are considered “trade secrets” and the FDA can’t force a company to share their trade secrets.

This makes it difficult for vegan consumers to know if there are some animal-derived ingredients lurking in fragrances.

What animal ingredients can possibly be found in perfumes and fragrances? Below are some ingredients used as a fixative in perfumes that could have been sourced from an animal:

  • Ambergris – from whale intestines
  • Castor – from muskrat and beaver genitals
  • Civet – from the glands of civet cats
  • Musk (Oil) – from musk deer, beaver, muskrat, civet cat, and otter genitals

I know what you’re thinking, My god! There’s gotta be another option for fragrances that do not contain animal genitals, glands, or intestines?!

Thankfully, there are cruelty-free and vegan perfumes available today and I’m excited to share with you all a 100% vegan fragrance brand called DefineMe!

About DefineMe Fragrance

DefineMe Fragrance was created by boss babe, Jennifer McKay Newton, on a mission to create a beautiful yet empowering collection of fragrances that are never tested on animals and do not contain any of those nasty animal ingredients I listed above.

What makes DefineMe Fragrance unlike any other are the messages behind each bottle! Each scent is packaged and inspired by an It-Girl who is breaking molds and crushing barriers!

  • Audry – empowered by love + believes it is always the answer
  • Clara – lives life with gratitude + grace
  • Delphine – an artistic, creative soul who radiates an effortless elegance
  • Harper – walks through life fearlessly blazing her own path
  • Payton – exemplifies strength + passion by living her dreams to the fullest
  • Sofia Isabel – a free spirit who embraces life with confidence

Not sure which one is for you? Take DefineMe’s Fragrance Quiz to see which It-Girl’s personality will empower you! Or check out their Sample Kit which includes all 6 scents with .03 oz of fragrance in adorable roller ball bottles!

“The intention is to be a wearable reminder of one’s own confidence, strength passion, fearlessness + to empower!” – DefineMe

Sofia Isabel by DefineMe Fragrances

I received the fragrance mist in Sofia Isabel. The packaging is super adorable! It comes in a bigger box with a cute pink bow. When you open it, there’s a smaller box inside which is what’s photographed below. Inside you’ll find an elegant glass bottle with a round cap and gold mist sprayer.

All of the packaging is super chic and I think this would make such a lovely gift!

You can shop for DefineMe Fragrances on their website or at Ulta.

Sofia Isabel is described as a free spirit who embraces life with confidence and the smell is described as intoxicating, sweet, free-spirit – with notes of mandarin, black currant, jasmine + sugar.

Since I got the sample set, I got to try and smell all 6 scents and Sofia Isabel fits me the best! It’s a balanced blend of floral and sweetness without being too overpowering. I don’t typically wear perfume on the daily because I find I’m sensitive to strong fragrances but a tiny spritz of DefineMe’s Sofia Isabel really helps to bolster my mood and energize me! Plus I feel super feminine and put together when I have it on! =)

In addition to the fragrance mist, DefineMe also has each scent in a similar size glass bottle but as a fragrance oil with a rollerball applicator, as well as, a smaller travel-size mist spray. They recently came out with a hair fragrance mist which I’m super excited to try next!

I was also happy to hear about DefineMe’s Dollar Program where they give $1 of every bottle sold to ‘She’s the First’, a non-profit that provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries with the goal of creating first-generation graduates and our next generation of global leaders!

Overall, I would highly recommend DefineMe’s cruelty-free and vegan fragrances for yourself or to gift to a special lady in your life who would appreciate the thoughtful and meaningful messages of women empowerment, self-confidence, and self-love in each bottle of DefineMe’s fragrances!

I’d love to know, which of DefineMe’s fragrances would you love to try?
