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»

Does Wella Test on Animals?

Is Wella Cruelty-Free?

Answer:

No. Wella is NOT cruelty-free. Wella does test on animals when required by law.

Wella’s Animal Testing Policy (2018)

What is Wella’s current animal testing policy?Β Wella states their products and ingredients are not tested on animals, except when required by law. They also go on to state China’s mandatory animal testing requirements for all imported cosmetics that are sold in China.

This implies that Wella is selling in China and therefore Wella has consented the Chinese authorities to test their products/ingredients on animals in order to sell within their country.

Wella also states in their animal testing policy that their “safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients is based on the use of recognized alternatives to animal testing, the use of existing safety data, and increasingly, the sharing of such data with other industry.” But even if Wella has already proven their products and ingredients are safe without the use of animal tests, in order to sell their products in China, the Chinese authorities still require Wella to test their ingredients/products on animals.

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

What do you think?

    A lot of big companies don’t sell in China because they have decency and integrity, simple as that.

    I support cruelty free products so please don’t get me wrong here, but I don’t think it’s realistic that big brands are not going to sell in China. Think Starbucks, Apple…China is where growth is coming from and companies can argue they do have a legal obligation to shareholders. I think the far better bet would be to campaign to Chinese authorities. Other countries should be able to share animal data with them so this makes absolutely no sense.

    I love Wella products, but I don’t feel good about the fact that it cares more about selling in China than remaining cruelty-free, even if that means losing that market. Integrity and respect of consumers is more important.

    Animal testing is barbaric and the tests often fail

    Thats is such a pity, as in China it is tested on animals and the law even encouraging to do so! I really care about animals and I would prefer to buy sth more expensive, but which is cruelty-free! There are lots of options to choose from, my favorite one is Virginic, found about recently about their products, but according to them and the certification they have everything is fine! Maybe, you want to check it out too -> https://virginic.com/
    Also, if you have others brands to suggest, please do so! I am curious about the fast changing environment πŸ™‚
