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»

Do you already have a vegan winter coat? Let us know if it's from one of these brands and/or where you got it from! πŸ’•

Is Cetaphil Cruelty-Free in 2019? | Does Cetaphil Test on Animals?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Cetaphil is a skincare brand specializing in products for sensitive, dry and/or acne-prone skin but is Cetaphil cruelty-free in 2019?

Is Cetaphil Cruelty-Free?

Cetaphil is not cruelty-free in 2019; Cetaphil products are tested on animals when required by law and Cetaphil products are also sold in China where animal testing is mandatory for all imported cosmetics.

It should be noted that Cetaphil is owned by Galderma, a pharmaceutical company (owned by L’Oreal and Nestle) and are required by law to test on animals in 2019.

Cetaphil Animal Testing Policy (2019)

Cetaphil’s website states, “Cetaphil does not test any of its products on animals.”

And on Cetaphil’s Canadian website, it states “In Canada, Cetaphil products are not tested on animals.”

However, this is not enough information for us to classify Cetaphil to be cruelty-free. Cetaphil products may not be tested on animals, but what about their ingredients? Cetaphil may not be testing their products on animals, but are they asking others to test on their behalf? And finally, Cetaphil products may not be tested on animals in Canada, but are Cetaphil products tested on animals elsewhere in the world?

Below is a screenshot of what is currently stated on Cetaphil’s US and Canada’s website:

Cetaphil Cruelty-Free Claims in 2019
Cetaphil Cruelty-Free Claims in 2019

It should be noted that Cetaphil is owned by Galderma, a pharmaceutical company where all pharmaceutical products are required by law and regulations to be tested on animals. Galderma is not a cruelty-free corporation.

In addition, when I tried asking Cetaphil if their ingredients are tested on animals, if they ask others to test on their behalf, and if their products are tested on animals anywhere in the world? Cetaphil had no response.

Is Cetaphil Sold in China?

I did some research and discovered that Cetaphil products are sold in China, where all imported cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals.

Below is a screenshot taken from Cetaphil’s China website:

Cetaphil products sold in China, required by law to test on animals
Cetaphil’s Chinese Website

Because of Cetaphil’s decision to sell its products in China, they must consent and pay the Chinese government to test their products on animals before Cetaphil is allowed to sell in their country.

Therefore we would not consider Cetaphil to be cruelty-free in 2019.

Is Cetaphil Vegan?

Cetaphil claims some of their products are vegan in which they don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, since we do not consider Cetaphil to be cruelty-free as their products are tested on animals when required by law, we would also not consider anything produced or manufactured by Cetaphil to be vegan.

In order for products to be vegan by ethical elephant’s standards, the finished products and ingredients must not be tested on animals and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Below is a screenshot of what is currently stated on Cetaphil’s website about their vegan status:

Cetaphil claims to be vegan but they're not cruelty-free

Unfortunately, because Cetaphil is not cruelty-free, we also would not consider Cetaphil products to be vegan.
