Want to know if your wine is vegan? Check out barnivore.com, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian beer, wine, and liquor 🍻 β€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.” πŸ₯‚πŸΎ

Loving the simple, clean, and vegan ingredients in this nourishing ELIXIR nail and cuticle oil by @madam_glam! πŸ’› Contains only three ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & Vitamin B) to help soften dry cuticles and keep them moisturized for a perfect mani πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
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 doesn’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! ♻️ 🌍

Is Blistex Cruelty-Free?

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
