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)

BH Cosmetics is an affordable makeup brand but is BH Cosmetics cruelty-free or do they test on animals?

Is BH Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?

BH Cosmetics is cruelty-free! BH Cosmetics does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.

BH Cosmetics Animal Testing Policy (2019)

BH Cosmetics is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, an internationally recognized cruelty-free certification program. The Leaping Bunny has a rigorous set of standards that each brand must meet in order to be accredited.

In addition to having their animal testing policy verified by a third party like the Leaping Bunny, BH Cosmetics also states on their website that they “do not test any products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf.”

BH Cosmetics’ Animal Testing Policy (2019)

Email Response from BH Cosmetics

In addition, I also reached out to BH Cosmetics to verify their current cruelty-free status and they kindly responded with the following:

Thank you for your interest in BH Cosmetics. The raw materials we use to manufacture our products are directly sourced from Europe, Japan and the United States. The Manufacturing (the mixing of each product batch, the pressing of each eye shadow color, the filling of each eye shadow color into the palette) is all done in China. We are a value-driven brand and because we are able to manufacture our products in China we are able to offer quality pigments and formulas at an attractive price.

Our longstanding commitment to end animal testing has not changed: We do not test our products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf. We are proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic products where safety can be proven by means other than animal testing.

We also require all of our manufacturers to sign a legal and binding document that they do not and will not test our products or raw materials on animals.

BH Cosmetics stated in their email response that their manufacturing takes place in China, but I want to make an important note here that cosmetics made in China are not required by law to be tested on animals. It’s only an issue when cosmetic products are sold in China in which the Chinese local laws require all imported cosmetics are to be tested on animals.

Therefore, just as long as BH Cosmetics are not sold in China… they remain to be cruelty-free! And we are happy to include BH Cosmetics to our list of cruelty-free brands.

Is BH Cosmetics Vegan?

Not all of BH Cosmetics are considered to be vegan as they use some animal-derived ingredients in some of their makeup products and shades of color cosmetics. They also use animal hair in some of their makeup brushes. But BH Cosmetics does offer some vegan makeup products.

Please reference the list below of BH Cosmetics’ vegan products.

    Thank you so much for explaining this. I was quite confused by “Made in China” and cruelty free at the same time,

    Question: if you are ethical and cruelty-free, where and how do you obtain animal hair products? Are the companies obtaining the animal hair cruelty free??

    • Stacey McRae

      I am wondering the same thing. If anything regarding an animal part is used in their products then not seeing how this company is cruelty free.
