Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
.
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
.
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Does Blistex Test on Animals?

Answer:

Unfortunately, Blistex is not considered a cruelty-free brand. Blistex products are tested on animals when required by law.

Blistex has chosen to sell in foreign markets that require their products to be tested on animals (like Mainland China).

Blistex Animal Testing Policy (2019)

There is virtually no information on Blistex website about animal testing policy. So we emailed Blistex directly and received the following response:

“Thank you for contacting Blistex with your question.

Blistex fully supports the elimination of inhumane animal testing. We verify the safety and efficacy of our products only on human volunteers and via in-vitro means rather than through animal testing in virtually all markets, including all of North America, South America, Europe, Australia, etc.  We consider the use of product testing on animals unnecessary given the many viable alternatives available to us at this time. The only cases in which such testing may occur on our products is in the rare circumstances when another government’s regulators mandate such steps during their registration processes.  But to be clear, we fully support further development of alternatives to animal testing and the continuing efforts of advocates on this issue in the hope that local authorities in those few foreign entities who continue to utilize animal testing protocols can be persuaded to change their course.”

The part in Blistex’s animal testing statement that is highlighted in bold indicates that Blistex has chosen to sell their products in countries that require animal testing by law.

Although Blistex is not conducting these animal tests themselves, however, they are consenting and allowing others to test their products on animals for them.

Even though Blistex may have verified their products are safe for human use by non-animal or in-vitro testing methods, but in order to sell their products in some countries, local government officials require Blistex to test their products again –but this time, on animals.

Because of this, many personal care brands have chosen not to sell in countries that require imported cosmetics to be tested on animals by law. Why can’t Blistex do the same if they’re truly against animal testing?

Therefore we would not consider Blistex to be cruelty-free.

    CHINA ?? is behind the times, everybody in the whole entire world knows that. Their weird government legalizes animal testing to be done! It is so torture!

β€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.”― Marc Bekoff
