JĀSÖN is Cruelty-Free

JASON 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 JĀSÖN to be Cruelty-Free.

Below is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on JASON’s website about its animal testing policy:

What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?

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

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.

JĀSÖN is Not 100% Vegan

‘Vegan’ in cosmetics can refer to an entire brand that is 100% Vegan or a specific product is vegan.

In the case of JĀSÖN, not all of their products are vegan. But they have some products that are suitable for vegans.

How to know which of JĀSÖN products are vegan?

All of JĀSÖN’s vegan products are clearly marked on their website. They also claim all of their products are vegan with the exception of its Cooling Minerals & Tea Tree Muscle Pain Therapy which contains beeswax.

The following is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on JASON’s official website about its vegan products:

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it’s usually used in the context to describe something that doesn’t contain any 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 JASON’s products made?

I asked JASON where their products are manufactured and they told me:

“Our Jason products are manufactured in the US.”

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

  1. Hi Vicky,
    How do you know that what these food companies are labeling on their personal care products are truthful without testing their products in an independent lab ?
    Thank you,

  2. In the third to the last paragraph, are you missing the word “not”? As in “…NOT formulated with parabens…”? Am I missing something, or did the proof reader miss something?

    1. Oops! My bad lol. My mistake, I meant to write ‘formulated without parabens..’ I’m a one-person team here so thank you for catching that for me! =)

      1. I’ve used the ethicalelephant on a number of occasions – I would’ve never imagined a day when you could buy vegan body care products. Thank you so much for all the research you do!
