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 Clinique Test on Animals? (2018)

Is Clinique cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Clinique is not cruelty-free. Clinique sells their products in Mainland China where animal testing is mandatory for all imported cosmetics and Clinique’s products and ingredients are tested on animals when required by law.

Clinique’s Animal Testing Statement

Clinique’s animal testing policy is misleading because they say they don’t test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf, unless the law requires it. This is a just another way of saying Clinique’s products and ingredients are indeed tested on animals.

“We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except when required by law.” (Source: Clinique)

When does the law require cosmetics to be tested on animals? There are some rare instances where animal testing is still required by law, specifically in Mainland China.

In order for beauty companies to register and sell their products in-stores in Mainland China, companies must consent and pay to have their products/ingredients tested on animals by the local Chinese authorities.

Using Clinique’s online store locator, you can clearly see that Clinique has a number of in-store counters where their products are being sold, throughout Mainland China.

Clinique is not required to sell in Mainland China but in choosing to do so, they are required to have their products tested on animals. Many beauty companies have chosen not to sell in China for this very reason, until China changes their animal testing requirements. Why won’t Clinique do the same if they claim to be committed to the elimination of animal testing? Therefore I would not consider Clinique to be a cruelty-free brand.

    I have stopped buying Clinique,because of China’s testing.Too often,money or profits win over,ethics and animal protection!

β€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.”― Marc Bekoff
