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’•

Ain't nuthin but a V-GANG,...

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 CoverGirl Cruelty-Free in 2019?

CoverGirl is cruelty-free; none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world. On November 4, 2018, CoverGirl officially became certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and Cruelty-Free International. However, it should be noted that CoverGirl is owned by Coty, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019 when required by law.

CoverGirl is owned by Coty, a parent company that tests on animals, and Coty Inc. also owns several other makeup and fragrance brands that are sold in Mainland China and therefore those brands are required to be tested on animals as per China’s animal testing laws.

Some cruelty-free shoppers may wish to boycott brands that are owned by a parent company that test on animals as they feel their money is indirectly supporting and funding animal tests done by the parent company. Learn more about some of the reasons consumers choose to support or boycott such brands in this article here. 

It’s great to see and hear CoverGirl has taken the right steps to become Leaping Bunny certified, but like most of you, we wanted to know whether CoverGirl is vegan or not?

Is CoverGirl Vegan in 2019?

Not all of Covergirl cosmetics is vegan as some contain beeswax, lanolin, collagen, and/or other animal-derived ingredients but Covergirl does offer some vegan makeup products in 2019.

Please reference below for a list of Covergirl vegan products.

CoverGirl Vegan Product List (2019)

In 2019, CoverGirl has started to label some of their cosmetics and products as “vegan” or “vegan formula” to indicate a handful of products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products. This is another major step in the right direction for CoverGirl as they start to formulate vegan affordable makeup products to the masses! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

The following CoverGirl cosmetics are considered suitable for vegans and labeled as so on CoverGirl’s website:

This vegan product list is updated as frequently as possible, please be aware that formulations may have changed since the publication of this post. If you have new information to suggest one of the above products isn’t vegan, please email me at info@ethicalelephant.com to let me know.

When I emailed CoverGirl in 2018 to inquire about their use of animal-derived ingredients in their makeup products and their vegan status, this is what they originally had to say:

“To be Cruelty-Free that means that we do not test our products on animals. However, we are not vegan. At Coty, we do not allow third parties to test on animals on our behalf. Our products do not contain or use in their manufacture any animal derived ingredients with the exception of lanolin, beeswax, sodium Chondroitin sulfate and atelocollagen. Lanolin is a natural by-product of processing sheep’s wool after it has been shorn, beeswax a natural by-product of honeybees discarded in the hive, neither causing any harm to the animals, and the latter two ingredients are of marine origin. Our products do not contain any bovine, ovine or caprine tissues, nor fluids from the encephalon, the spinal cord or the eyes, or any other ingredient or material presenting risks of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs).

While there is currently no legal definition of a vegan or vegetarian cosmetic product, and we do not specialize in products without animal-derived ingredients, we respect your desire for this type of information.”

    This is amazing news! Since we don’t know what products are actually vegan yet, could you do a blog post listing the products that are vegan?
