Coal and Canary is Cruelty-Free
Coal and Canary have 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.
By our standards, we would consider Coal and Canary to be Cruelty-Free.
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.
Coal and Canary is 100% Vegan
Coal and Canary has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
“Yes! We are completely vegan. We use a soy and vegetable based wax blend.. no animals here!”
Most candles are not vegan and contain animal-based ingredients like stearic acid or beeswax. However, stearic acid can also be derived from non-animal sources (like coconuts).
The only way to know if candles are vegan is by contacting the company directly and asking. Or if the product or manufacturer clearly states that it’s vegan on their packaging.
Where are Coal and Canary’s products made?
Coal and Canary states on its website,
“Hand-poured in Winnipeg, Canada.”
I hope this article helped you to understand Coal and Canary’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
