Bite Beauty is now officially 100% vegan! 🌱✨ @bitebeauty recently reformulated all of their products and has removed all animal-derived ingredients and by-products (like lanolin, beeswax, and carmine) from their entire collection. 🙌🏻
.
However, it should be noted that their Lip Lab is not completely vegan, yet! They’re working on making it vegan in the near future. 🌿💖

Bite Beauty's Vegan Statement:
.
"Yes, Bite Beauty products are vegan.
.
Our reason to go vegan was simple-we’ve evolved. We can create high-performance formulas without ingredients that come from animals. As we’ve been innovating with superfoods, we’ve learned we can get amazing results that perform on par with-if not better than-formulas that contain animal byproducts.
.
Further, we wanted to create products everyone can love-including people who crave clean, cruelty-free and vegan beauty."

I just finished reading ‘Slave to Fashion’ by @safia_minney 📚 and it has completely changed my perspective on the true cost of cheap clothes. ✨ Definitely a must-read to understanding modern slavery in the fashion industry and the need to support fair trade and ethical brands that are transparent about how their products are made with respect for people and the planet. 🌍🌿
.
"Today, a whole generation of shoppers expect to be able to buy cheap clothing - but these low prices are only possible because of the slavery and exploitation that exist in the fashion supply chain.
.
The price of clothes does not reflect the true cost to the farmers, spinners and weavers, tailors, finishers, quality-control teams and packers who are underpaid and overworked in the race to get the latest fashion items into our stores.
.
Many of them are forced to live and work in shocking conditions.
.
Workers in developing countries are often left helpless by a lack of workplace representation and unions that could speak up for their rights. As a result, we are witnessing a global 'race to the bottom', with developing countries competing against each other to supply the cheapest labor in a bid to attract brands to their factories."

So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Dr. Hauschka Vegan Product List (2019)

Is Dr. Hauschka Cruelty-Free?

Answer:

Yes! Dr. Hauschka is cruelty-free; Dr. Hauschka does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals.

Dr. Hauschka is certified cruelty-free by PETA. They state on their website, “We assure you that no animal tests have ever been carried out by or on behalf of Dr. Hauschka Cosmetics, nor will this happen in the future – not for the Chinese market nor any other market anywhere.”

I’ve been a fan of Dr. Hauschka products because they prove that we don’t need any nasty chemicals or fillers in our skincare products in order for them to actually work and more importantly, we don’t need to test cosmetics or its ingredients on animals to prove that they’re safe for human use.

Dr. Hauschka is also very transparent about how the company works, what’s in their products, and where their raw ingredients are sourced. So it’s no surprise that they have provided a helpful list of their products that are vegan-friendly which you can find below.

    I am surprised that a company such as Dr Hauschka, who has constructed their brand philosophy on Demeter biodynamic agriculture, would ever be considered cruelty free or vegan.
    Biodinamic agriculture philosophie promotes animal sacrifice as part of a spiritual believes and has no scientific evidence to support any benefits of their practices, which are entirely spiritual.
    Part of the process of biodynamic agriculture is to fill the horns of a local cow with manure, to sew flowers to deers bladder and to disperse field mice skin and insects ashes in the field…
    It is strange that any organisation would accept this practice as a vegan or cruelty free !!

    Thank you for your informative information about cruelty-free products. I would like to subscribe to your newsletter updating me on any products that do not contain animal products and are not tested on animals. I nee to build up a list of products available in South Africa so I can try them out myself and spread the news about them to others.

    Appreciate all you are doing to help animals.

    Wishing you love and light.

    Cruelty free and vegan are very different.
    From their website: “Are your products vegan or vegetarian?
    Dr. Hauschka Skin Care upholds holistic principals but does not ascribe to a vegetarian or vegan philosophy. Though we do no animal testing, several humanely obtained animal ingredients: lanolin, honey, propolis, beeswax, lactose and royal jelly are included in many Dr. Hauschka products. We also employ carmine and silk, two ingredients from insects.”

      Yup. Cruelty-free and vegan mean two totally different things. That’s why this list that they’ve provided only includes products that are free of animal testing AND animal ingredients. This list of Dr. Hauschka products does not contain any lanolin, honey, beeswax, silk, carmine, etc.

      Hope that clears things up for you! =)
