EVOHE Skincare is Cruelty-Free

EVOHE 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 EVOHE to be Cruelty-Free.

What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?

EVOHE Skincare has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China; therefore, they are not required to test on animals.

“We don’t sell into mainland China due to the animal testing requirements.”

As of May 1, 2021, some imported ordinary cosmetics can be exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. However, for the most part, animal testing is still legally required for most imported cosmetics in 2022.

Cruelty-Free Policies

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.

EVOHE is 100% Vegan

EVOHE Skincare has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

The following is a snippet of the email response I received from EVOHE when I asked if all of their products are vegan:

“Yes EVOHE is 100% vegan and doesn’t contain any animal ingredients. We are also 100% palm oil free and cruelty free as well.”

Vegan Policies

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 cosmetics include carmine, lanolin, snail mucus, beeswax, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, animal-based glycerin, keratin, and squalene.

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.

Where are EVOHE’s products made?

EVOHE states on its website,

“Handmade with love in Australia, using the best available Australian extracts”

Ethical Mica Mining Policy

Mica is a mineral that’s used in cosmetics to add a shimmery effect. But the mining of natural mica has been linked to child labor and human rights violations.

Unless the company discloses its mica mining policy, we have no way of knowing whether its mica is ethically sourced without child or forced labor.

So I asked EVOHE Skincare if their mica is ethically sourced without the use of child labor and they responded by stating,

“The mica we use is directly from Malaysia, which is a full member of the United Nations and does not employ anyone under 18 year of age.
We regularly audit our suppliers and have statements of this matter.”

I hope this article helped you to understand EVOHE Skincare’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
