Bite Beauty is now officially 100% vegan! 🌱✨ @bitebeauty recently reformulated all of their products and has removed all animal-derived ingredients and by-products (like lanolin, beeswax, and carmine) from their entire collection. 🙌🏻
.
However, it should be noted that their Lip Lab is not completely vegan, yet! They’re working on making it vegan in the near future. 🌿💖

Bite Beauty's Vegan Statement:
.
"Yes, Bite Beauty products are vegan.
.
Our reason to go vegan was simple-we’ve evolved. We can create high-performance formulas without ingredients that come from animals. As we’ve been innovating with superfoods, we’ve learned we can get amazing results that perform on par with-if not better than-formulas that contain animal byproducts.
.
Further, we wanted to create products everyone can love-including people who crave clean, cruelty-free and vegan beauty."

I just finished reading ‘Slave to Fashion’ by @safia_minney 📚 and it has completely changed my perspective on the true cost of cheap clothes. ✨ Definitely a must-read to understanding modern slavery in the fashion industry and the need to support fair trade and ethical brands that are transparent about how their products are made with respect for people and the planet. 🌍🌿
.
"Today, a whole generation of shoppers expect to be able to buy cheap clothing - but these low prices are only possible because of the slavery and exploitation that exist in the fashion supply chain.
.
The price of clothes does not reflect the true cost to the farmers, spinners and weavers, tailors, finishers, quality-control teams and packers who are underpaid and overworked in the race to get the latest fashion items into our stores.
.
Many of them are forced to live and work in shocking conditions.
.
Workers in developing countries are often left helpless by a lack of workplace representation and unions that could speak up for their rights. As a result, we are witnessing a global 'race to the bottom', with developing countries competing against each other to supply the cheapest labor in a bid to attract brands to their factories."

So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Is Lise Watier Tested On Animals?

Lise Watier does not test on animals and is a cruelty-free brand. Lise Watier does not conduct or commission animal testing on their products and ingredients. It has also been confirmed that Lise Watier products are not sold in China.

However it is not clear which of Lise Watier products are vegan-friendly and do not contain any animal ingredients or derivatives. As always, I recommend checking their ingredient list.

Lise Watier’s Animal Testing Policy

Below you will find Lise Watier’s animal testing statement taken directly from their website’s FAQ:

Lise Watier Animal Testing Statement

Lise Watier is Cruelty-free!

I also emailed Lise Watier asking for specifics about their animal testing policy and to ensure the statement found on their website was accurate and up-to-date. Below you will find their response:

Our products are not tested on animals in compliance with 1223/2009 EU (Europe Union) regulation.

We do not test our ingredients on animals. For your information, this is not allowed anymore in EU since 2013 March 13th.

We do not hire a third party to test our ingredients or products on animals. We use external party for some tests on our product but they have to be in compliance with EU regulation. Those tests are done on volunteers or in-vitro cells.

Do any of your raw material suppliers test on animals? No they do not because they have to be in compliance with EU regulation. Furthermore, during our development process, they have to provide us with an attestation that prove that their ingredients are not tested on animals.

Our products are not sold in China.

    This is not true. I have seen the testing on cows and seen the animal testing to build the brand line with free radicals and parabens…all animals are dragged around…

    Just purchased my first Lise Watier products. Was at a Shoppers Drug Mart Gala event and had the opportunity to try them and loved them. I did check their policies first and was pleased to see their statement of cruelty free though they do not display a “bunny” logo. Included in my purchases were two Lise Watier makeup brushes. I just looked more closely at the packaging for the brushes and it states that they are made with “Goat hair”. (Ewww!!) I will be returning them. Wish I had looked first. Ah well.

    Hi…I am a new customer to Lisa watier. I previously avoided this brand because i thought your cosmetics were tested on animals. I have since learned that you are a cruelty free company, so now I can indulge. I just love my new Smokey Kohl Violet velour matte eye pencil. It’s exactly the color i was looking for. And it’s a bonus that it’s waterproof.
