Is Vasanti Cruelty-Free?

🐰 Vasanti is a cruelty-free brand. None of Vasanti’s ingredients or products are tested on animals anywhere in the world.

How Did We Conclude Vasanti is Cruelty-Free?

Vasanti has met all the criteria in our Cruelty-Free Checklist, which includes ALL of the following:

  • ✓ Vasanti confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf.
  • ✓ Vasanti confirmed all their ingredient suppliers do not test on animals
  • ✓ Vasanti confirmed they do not allow or sell their products under conditions where animal testing is required by law

By meeting all of our Cruelty-Free Criteria, Vasanti is a truly cruelty-free brand by our standards.

Is Vasanti Certified Cruelty-Free?

Yes. PETA recognizes Vasanti as cruelty-free. But Vasanti is NOT certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny or Cruelty Free International. 

Is Vasanti Sold in China?

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

What’s going on with China’s animal testing laws in 2024? Some cosmetics sold in China can be exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. However, without meeting those conditions, animal testing is still legally required for most cosmetics sold in China in 2024.

Is Vasanti Vegan?

⭐️ Vasanti is a 100% vegan brand. All their products are vegan, and are formulated without any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Does Vasanti Label Its Vegan Products?

Yes. All Vasanti’s vegan products are clearly labeled as vegan.

Are Vasanti’s Products Certified Vegan?

No. Vasanti’s vegan products are NOT certified vegan by an official or third-party vegan designation. Vasanti’s vegan products are self-reported and defined by the brand itself. 

Where are Vasanti’s products made?

Vasanti states on its website,

“We manufacturer all our products in the following countries:  Canada ( 85%) Germany / Czechoslovakia ( 10%) 1 product Makeup Wipes Japan (.5%) Makeup Brushes China (5%)”

*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are imported and sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.

Ethical Mica Mining Policy

Mica is a mineral 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 Vasanti if their mica is ethically sourced without the use of child labor and they responded by stating,

“As part of our values and principles, Vasanti Cosmetics Inc. is committed to being socially responsible and have written documentation from our raw material suppliers and manufacturers declaring that child labor or forced labor is not used for mining of mica and subsequent manufacturing and procurement process in any way. We condemn the use of Child Labor and Forced Labor and are committed to only use ethically sourced mica.”

☕️ Every week, I continue to reach out to new brands while trying my best to keep current brands updated. If you found any of my posts or guides helpful, consider Buying Me A Coffee! I would greatly appreciate it! ❤️
