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 πŸ’œ

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
❁ Violet-C Brightening Serum

Is StriVectin Cruelty-Free? (2019 UPDATE)

Is StriVectin Cruelty-Free?

Is StriVectin Cruelty-Free?


Yes! StriVectin is now cruelty-free. In 2019, StriVectin confirmed their products are no longer for sale in-stores in Mainland China.

StriVectin’s Animal Testing Policy

StriVectin states on their website’s FAQ that “StriVectin does not and will not test on animals.” But in an email response from StriVectin, I learned that StriVectin’s products are actually tested on animals when required by law.

*2019 UPDATE: StriVectin is no longer sold in Mainland China and therefore their products are not required to be tested on animals as required by law in China.

StriVectin Not Sold in Mainland China

Shortly after my publication of this post “exposing” StriVectin’s decision to sell in Mainland China and allowing the Chinese government to test their products on animals, I received an email from StriVectin’s Senior Manager of Consumer Engagement informing me that they have chosen to stop selling in Mainland China stores.

Below is a snippet of the email I received:

Email response I received from StriVectin

This is AMAZING news. Not only has StriVectin regained their cruelty-free status but they consciously made the decision to STOP selling their products in-stores in Mainland China due to the fact that China still requires all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals by law and they didn’t agree with that.

I hope to see more cosmetic brands to follow suit in 2019. Thank you StriVectin for leading by example!

StriVectin’s (Old) Policy

In case you were curious, below is a screenshot of the original email response I received from StriVectin in 2018.

StriVectin’s 2018 (Old) Animal Testing Policy

Any cosmetic brand that is importing and selling their products in-stores in Mainland China cannot be considered cruelty-free. Although these companies may not be doing the animal tests themselves, they are allowing and paying the Chinese authorities to test their products on animals for them, in order to sell in their country.

These companies can prevent these animal tests from happening by simply choosing not to do business in China! and StriVectin has done just that!

    Thank you! Just made all the difference in whether I was about to purchase one of their products.
