Ethical Analysis

Is Bask cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable? We’ve got the answers here! Read below for more details on Bask’s policies.
Bask is cruelty-free. None of Bask’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals anywhere in the world.
All of Bask’s products are 100% vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
Bask claims their sunscreen formulas are ‘reef-safe’ because they do not contain Oxybenzone or Octinoxate. And they claim all of their ingredients are ‘sustainably sourced’; however, it’s not clear what their sustainable ingredient sourcing policies or practices are.
Bask products come in plastic packaging and their spray products are non-aerosol. I also couldn’t find anything stating they’re working on reducing their use of virgin plastic in their product packaging.

Bask is Cruelty-Free

Bask 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 Bask to be Cruelty-Free.

Bask Cruelty-Free and Vegan Claims

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no 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.

Bask is 100% Vegan

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

I hope this article helped you to understand Bask’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
