Dr. Brite is Cruelty-Free
Dr. Brite has 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. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
By our standards, we would consider Dr. Brite 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, or any third parties.
Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.
Dr. Brite is 100% Vegan
Dr. Brite has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
“All our products are plant based and 100% Vegan. We don’t test on animals either.”
Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.
Some common animal products used in consumer and household cleaning products include animal-based glycerin, honey, and other animal-based surfactants.
There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.
So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.
I hope this article helped you to understand Dr. Brite’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing once and for all!
