Oh look, itโ€™s wine oโ€™clock! ๐Ÿทโœจ #tgif
Want to know if your wine is vegan? Check out barnivore.com, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian beer, wine, and liquor ๐Ÿป โ€œwhen making the product, dairy, honey, and other things are ingredients in the final recipe. When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies can use things like isinglass (from fish bladder), gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products grab onto the impurities and make it easier to catch them in the filters, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.โ€ ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพ

Loving the simple, clean, and vegan ingredients in this nourishing ELIXIR nail and cuticle oil by @madam_glam! ๐Ÿ’› Contains only three ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & Vitamin B) to help soften dry cuticles and keep them moisturized for a perfect mani ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
There is virtually no scent to this cuticle oil, so this would be perfect for someone who is sensitive to fragrances or for someone who doesnโ€™t like lingering scents on their hands when using a hand cream or oil.
I also appreciate the recyclable packaging and reusable glass bottle + dropper! โ™ป๏ธ ๐ŸŒ

Is Aveeno Cruelty-Free in 2019?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Aveeno is known for their natural and affordable skincare products but sadly, Aveeno is not cruelty-free; Aveeno products are tested on animals when required by law.

Is Aveeno Cruelty-Free?

No. Aveeno is not cruelty-free because they allow and pay officials to test their products on animals. Although Aveeno is not conducting the animal tests themselves, but they are having others do the testing for them.

Below is a screenshot of Aveeno’s animal testing statement found on their website:

The part that I highlighted “except in the rare situation where governments or laws require it” suggest that Aveeno is selling in countries that require animal testing by law, most likely, Mainland China.

In the US & Canada, animal testing is not required by law to prove cosmetic products or ingredients are safe for consumers to use. Some parts of the world, like China, require companies that wish to sell their products in their country to test on animals.

It should also be noted that Aveeno is owned by Johnson & Johnson, a corporation that sadly continues to test on animals.

When I first reached out to Aveeno to inquire about their stance on animal testing, I received the following response which links Aveeno’s stance on animal testing to that of their parent company, Johnson & Johnson.

“Thank you for your contacting us here Johnson & Johnson Inc., makers of Aveenoยฎ.

The Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies does not conduct testing of our cosmetic or personal care products on animals and we do not ask others to test on our behalf, except when testing is required by law or specific government regulation. When it comes to the development of medicines, medical devices and other regulated health products, where animal use is often required, our policies reflect the highest animal welfare standards and meet or exceed all applicable local and national laws and regulations. To learn more about our policies, we invite you to see more information on our website: https://www.jnj.com/about-jnj/company-statements/guideline-on-the-humane-care-use-of-animals

    Nothing should be tested on animals. We do not have that right.

    Have just bought two Aveeno products for dry skin assuming they were cruelty free. I am most disappointed to learn that Johnson and Johnson condone animal testing and once used up, I will not be buying any more. It’s about time large companies such as this came out of the dark ages.

    So disappointed that I’ve been supporting animal abusers for many years. Will not be purchasing Aveeno products again and I already steer clear of Johnson & Johnson. I wasn’t paying close enough attention – thank you for the list of alternatives!

    Kathleen!! I agree entirely with everything you said! I’m tired of corporate giants like Johnson & Johnson blasting kittens and ducklings with chemicals just to make sure their darn lotion works!

    Keep killing it queen— down with corporations,

    Johnson and Johnson you hypocrites you don’t have to sell your products in countries that still require animal testing you just let them buy you out cuz your money hungry you’re disgusting and I will never use another Johnson & Johnson product as long as I live and I’m going to post on Facebook about it so people know you’re such hypocrites

โ€œMake 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.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
