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 Koh Gen Do Cruelty-Free?

Koh Gen Do is cruelty-free in 2019, none of Koh Gen Do’s products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

Koh Gen Do Animal Testing Statement

There is virtually no information available on Koh Gen Do’s website about their animal testing policy so I emailed them to inquire about their policy and I have confirmed the following:

  • Koh Gen Do does not test any of their products on animals
  • Koh Gen Do does not test any of their raw ingredients on animals
  • Koh Gen Do does not ask any third parties to test their products or ingredients on animals on their behalf
  • It is in Koh Gen Do’s agreement that all materials are not animal tested through their manufacturer. When it is tested the In Vitro method is used.
  • Koh Gen Do is not sold in physical stores in Mainland China

When asked about selling in China, Koh Gen Do responded by saying “We do not have a store in China that we retail in.  We have circumnavigated the China animal testing by using e-commerce to sell into China.  We do have a store in Hong Kong, but Hong Kong is not required to do animal testing under China regulations and have their own regulations.”

Since Koh Gen Do is not selling their products in-stores in mainland China, and only selling in Hong Kong or online, they are not required to test their products or ingredients on animals.

I am happy to add Koh Gen Do to our List of Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands!


Is Koh Gen Do Vegan?

Not all of Koh Gen Do’s products are vegan as they do use some beeswax and pearl shell in some of their products but Koh Gen Do does offer some vegan skin and makeup products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Please reference below for a list of Koh Gen Do vegan products.
