Ace of Air is Cruelty-Free

Ace of Air has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

By our standards, we would consider Ace of Air to be Cruelty-Free.

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.

At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, and by any third parties.

Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.

Ace of Air is 100% Vegan

Ace of Air has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

“We formulate vegan products made without egg, dairy, fish, shellfish or bee products.”

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.

Some common animal products used in cosmetics include carmine, lanolin, snail mucus, beeswax, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, animal-based glycerin, keratin, and squalene.

There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.

Ethical Mica Mining Policy

Mica is a mineral that’s used in cosmetics to add a shimmery effect. But the mining of natural mica has been linked to child labor and human rights violations.

Unless the company discloses its mica mining policy, we have no way of knowing whether its mica is ethically sourced without child or forced labor.

So I asked Ace of Air if their mica is ethically sourced without the use of child labor and they responded by stating,

Thank you for your message, your research and your focus on this issue. Illuminate Me Halo Moisturizer contains mica. We are proud and grateful to be members and supporters of the Responsible Mica Initiative (RMI), and source our mica only from ethical suppliers. Our supplier is audited routinely consistent with the principles and requirements of RMI. For more information on RMI please click here.
