Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

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!

Is StriVectin Vegan?

Almost all of StriVectin’s products are considered vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products with the exception of a couple of products that contain honey: Tri-Phase Daily Glow Toner and Volumizing Hand Cream which are both not suitable for vegans.

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!

What do you think?

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