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»

Do you already have a vegan winter coat? Let us know if it's from one of these brands and/or where you got it from! πŸ’•

Is Kosas Cruelty-Free in 2019?
Is Kosas Cruelty-Free in 2019?

Kosas Cosmetics is a luxury green beauty brand, all of their products are free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, synthetic fragrance, they also claim to be gluten, egg, nut, soy, and cruelty-free. Kosas is available at Sephora, MECCA, and The Detox Market.

Before adding Kosas Cosmetics to our wish list, we first had to ask Is Kosas Cruelty-free?

Is Kosas Cruelty-Free?

Kosas is cruelty-free in 2019; Kosas does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals. Kosas is also certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

Kosas Cruelty-Free Status (2019)

I couldn’t find any information on Kosas website about their animal testing policy.

So I emailed Kosas and they confirmed to me that Kosas is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and that none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals. Kosas also verifies that their ingredient suppliers do not test on animals as well.

In addition, Kosas confirmed that none of their products are sold in Mainland China where animal testing is required by law.

As a result, I am happy to add Kosas Cosmetics to ethical elephant’s list of cruelty-free brands!

Is Kosas Vegan?

Not all of Kosas Cosmetics products are vegan as some contain beeswax and/or lanolin. Kosas does have some vegan options, please reference below for a list of Kosas vegan products.

The following Kosas cosmetics are considered vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
