Want to know if your wine is vegan? Check out barnivore.com, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian beer, wine, and liquor 🍻 β€œwhen making the product, dairy, honey, and other things are ingredients in the final recipe. When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies can use things like isinglass (from fish bladder), gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products grab onto the impurities and make it easier to catch them in the filters, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.” πŸ₯‚πŸΎ

Loving the simple, clean, and vegan ingredients in this nourishing ELIXIR nail and cuticle oil by @madam_glam! πŸ’› Contains only three ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & Vitamin B) to help soften dry cuticles and keep them moisturized for a perfect mani πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
There is virtually no scent to this cuticle oil, so this would be perfect for someone who is sensitive to fragrances or for someone who doesn’t like lingering scents on their hands when using a hand cream or oil.
.
I also appreciate the recyclable packaging and reusable glass bottle + dropper! ♻️ 🌍

Does Algenist Test on Animals? (2018)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Is Algenist cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Algenist is not cruelty-free because Algenist products are sold in Mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

Algenist Animal Testing Statement

Algenist claims they are not testing their products or ingredients on animals and that they are working towards the elimination of animal testing. But the truth is, Algenist products and ingredients are tested on animals when the law requires it.

When is it required by law to test on animals?

In some cases, it is mandatory for companies to pay and consent to have their products tested on animals. For example, in order to sell in-stores in Mainland China, cosmetic companies must have their products tested on animals by the local Chinese authorities.

This is the case for Algenist, although they are not doing the testing themselves, they are having others do it for them.

On Algenist’s website, it states:

“Algenist does not conduct animal testing, nor ask others to test on our behalf, unless required by law, regulation, or a governmental authority.” (Source: Algenist)

via Algenist

It’s great to read that Algenist is supporting and working with IIVS to find alternatives to animal testing but many existing cruelty-free companies are doing that already by not having their products tested on animals. Why can’t Algenist do the same?

Can Algenist really be working to eliminate animal testing while contributing to it? Not in my books.

Therefore I would not consider Algenist to be a cruelty-free brand.

    Tatcha may be cruelty free as advertised but they use silk worms in their products . So far everything I inquired about is not vegan friendly .

    I’m confused – you link the company’s official statement, but then completely disagree and stat they *do* test on animals. Where are your sources that prove they test on animals, other than your anecdotes regarding China?
