A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

Is Color Club Nail Polish Vegan?

Is Color Club Vegan?

Yes. All of Color Club nail polish are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients.

I was recently informed by an ethical elephant reader that she spotted shellac listed on some of Color Club’s nail polish ingredient labels. Shellac is not a vegan ingredient, it is derived from the female lac bug and is commonly used in traditional nail polish.

I was surprised to hear this because I’ve always believed Color Club to be a 100% vegan nail polish brand and upon looking at the small ingredient label of some of the Color Club nail polish I owned, I also spotted shellac on the ingredient list.

To my disappointment, I emailed Color Club and they kindly cleared things up and confirmed to me that shellac is no longer used in any of their nail products and that I have some older bottles with an outdated label.

“Thanks for the additional info. It looks like you have a few older bottles. I was able to confirm with my regulatory manager that shellac is no longer used in our nail products. Because our labels are ordered in very large quantities, the ingredient was only recently removed from the ingredient deck and older stock may still be circulating with the outdated label.” – Color Club Representative

So don’t be alarmed if your Color Club nail polish bottle says it contains shellac, those labels are just outdated. All of Color Club nail polishes are indeed vegan!!

    How do you know it is vegan and cruelty free? It doesn’t say anywhere on their website that they are vegan or cruelty free and I don’t see a leaping bunny certification anywhere. Just because a product is vegan does not mean it wasn’t tested on an animal, there are all types of vegan products that are tested on animals…

      I have confirmed and verified Color Club’s animal testing policy as I do with each and every single brand that I feature and post on my blog for the past 4+ years.
      I take what brands tell me about their animal testing policy at face value but if you feel more comfortable with only supporting and purchasing brands that are certified cruelty-free then Color Club may not be suitable for you as they are not certified by Leaping Bunny.

      Also, please note that just because a brand isn’t Leaping Bunny certified doesn’t mean they’re not cruelty-free which is the case for Color Club.
