A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

Is Kari Gran Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Kari Gran is a luxury natural, organic skincare and mineral makeup brand and I’m pleased to add Kari Gran to ethical elephant’s list of cruelty-free brands with vegan options!

I’ve confirmed with Kari Gran that they do not test any of their finished products or ingredients on animals; they do not ask any third parties to test on their behalf; they verify with their vendors specifically about not testing on animals; and they do not sell in Mainland China (only in Hong Kong which is exempt from Chinese laws that require animal testing).

However it should be noted that Kari Gran is not certified cruelty-free by a third party organization like Leaping Bunny or PETA, which is something I encourage them to do sooner rather than later but nonetheless, I was satisfied with the response I received from Kari Gran and will be adding them to my list of Cruelty-free Brands!

Kari Gran Vegan Products

Not all of Kari Gran products are vegan as they do use some organic beeswax and carmine in some of their products, but they do offer several vegan skincare and makeup products. I hope to see them make a vegan alternative to their popular lip whips soon!

Below is a list of Kari Gran products that are considered vegan:

    Hello!
    I’m just wondering what “they do not test their FINISHED products on animals” means exactly? So, they test along the way before commiting to the end formulas? I’m just wondering if that was a deliberate choice of words relayed to you by a company trying to seem cruelty free but may not be, or if this was just nothing. Never can be too careful these days, I’d love to know if they are truly practicing compassionate business πŸ™‚ Thanks for getting back to us!

      Hey Ali,
      I’m glad you asked this because this is actually a loophole some companies use.. some will claim that they don’t test their finished products on animals when in fact, the ingredients they use MAY have been tested on animals.

      In the case with Kari Gran, I asked them separately.. whether they test their finished products on animals? and they answered No. And then I also asked if they test any of their ingredients on animals? and they also answered No to this.

      So I summarized it in this post by saying “they do not test any of their finished products OR ingredients on animals”

      Hope that clears it up! Let me know if you have any other questions =)
