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»

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?
