Everyone can do simple things...

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 L’Oreal Cruelty-Free in 2019? | L’Oreal Paris Animal Testing Policy

Is L'Oreal Cruelty-free in 2019?
Is L’Oreal Cruelty-free in 2019?

L’Oreal Paris is a consumer brand division of the parent company, L’Oreal Group but is L’Oreal Paris Cruelty-Free in 2019?

Is L’Oreal Cruelty-Free?

L’Oreal Paris is not cruelty-free in 2019; L’Oreal Paris is sold in mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

L’Oreal Paris is a subsidiary brand of the L’Oreal Group, a parent corporation that tests on animals when required by law in 2019.

L’Oreal Paris Animal Testing Policy (2019)

L’Oreal Paris states on its website, “Today, L’Oreal no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule. Certain health authorities may nevertheless decide to conduct animal tests themselves for certain cosmetic products, as it is still the case in China.”

Below is a screenshot of what is currently stated on L’Oreal Paris’ website:

L'Oreal Paris Animal Testing Policy (2019)
L’Oreal Paris Animal Testing Policy (2019)

L’Oreal Paris and L’Oreal Group share the same animal testing policy where any of their products that are sold in China are tested on animals by the Chinese government.

L’Oreal claims that they no longer test their ingredients or animals and although they may not be conducting the animal tests themselves, they are knowingly paying and consenting the Chinese authorities to test their products/ingredients on animals, in order to sell in their country.

L’Oreal Paris Sold in China?

L’oreal Paris is indeed sold in China, below is a screenshot taken from L’Oreal Paris’ China website:

L'Oreal Paris sold in China; required to test on animals in 2019

Some would argue that since L’Oreal has in the past and continues to contribute to the research and development of non-animal testing methods, in which some are currently being used and adopted in China, that we should continue to support and buy from L’Oreal if we want to work to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics.

However, I personally do not feel comfortable supporting a brand that knowingly agrees and pays to have their products tested on animals. At the end of the day, if we’re asking the question, Is L’Oreal Paris cruelty-free? and Are L’Oreal Paris products tested on animals, anywhere in the world?

The answer is: L’Oreal is not cruelty-free because their products are sold in China and are required by law to be tested on animals by the Chinese government.

Is L’Oreal Vegan?

L’Oreal claims some of their products are “100% Vegan” however since L’Oreal tests on animals when required by law in 2019, we would not consider anything produced from L’oreal Paris to be considered vegan.

L’Oreal claims their Ever Pure hair products are 100% vegan, but L’Oreal is not cruelty-free.
