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 💜

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

Göt2B Animal Testing Policy; Not Cruelty-Free

This post may contain affiliate links.

Göt2B is owned by Henkel and it has been confirmed that they do test their products on animals as required by law, therefore Göt2B is not cruelty-free.

Below you will find Henkel’s (and Göt2B’s) animal testing statement:

Dear Ms. L,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding Henkel’s Animal Testing policy.

Henkel is responsible for safety, health and environmental matters relating to the production, distribution and use of its products. In fulfilling this responsibility, the raw materials and finished products are subjected to numerous tests and studies, most of which are required by law. Moreover, Henkel applies additional standards that guarantee a high level of product safety for consumers and the environment.

Henkel only commissions animal testing if legislation so provides and no alternative test methods are available for obtaining the necessary safety data.

For more than two decades, Henkel has worked intensively on the development of alternative methods capable of providing the information needed without animal testing. Such alternatives are often referred to as in-vitro methods (Latin: “in glass”), as the tests are carried out, for example, on cell systems.

We are developing new alternative test methods with the help of our full thickness skin model, which involves no animal testing. We use this full thickness skin model to assure the performance and quality of our finished products, e.g. to test the compatibility of our cosmetics products. One result of the use of the non-animal in-vitro tests (tests carried out in a test tube) developed so far has been the inclusion of a range of new cell and tissue culture systems in laboratory practice.

In addition to its continued scientific efforts, Henkel proactively works to accelerate the currently long-drawn process of legal accreditation of alternative test methods. The overall objective is to further reduce the number of animal tests and ultimately to eliminate the need for animal testing all together.

If you’re looking for cruelty-free haircare products, I highly recommend Giovanni or Avalon Organics.

    Thanks for your post. It is helping me answer someone on Amazon who asked me about their hair color. The FDA points out that companies claiming that they do not test on animals or are cruelty free could also be using raw materials previously tested on animals years ago: http://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/Labeling/Claims/ucm2005202.htm. I know L’Oreal has found an alternative way to test that does involve a material like human tissues and now can make this claim of being cruelty free. China evidently requires animal testing though. Sad. Here’s a source I found very useful: https://www.mspca.org/animal_protection/product-safety-testing/

    Thanks for your post! People saying animal testing is necessary believe into the lies. Would you use a dog to study cat leukemia? Obviously not. Results on nonhuman animal do not and can not be translated into human safety. Genetically. We are different. Alternatives to animal testing and exist and can be cheaper. These include: 1) human-based clinical research; 2) epidemiology (study, causes and distribution of human diseases); 3) cellular and molecular biology using human-based tissue and cell cultures and in vitro; 4) autopsy research; 5) biopsy research; 6) computer models using virtual reality, simulators and 3D programs; 7) mathematical models using formulas to determine drug concoctions and reactions; 8) case studies; 9) human-based DNA/genetic research; 10) trial and error methodology.

“Make 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
