𝚟𝚎𝚐𝚊𝚗 ≠ 𝚌𝚛𝚞𝚎𝚕𝚝𝚢-𝚏𝚛𝚎𝚎
some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.
.
How? the term '𝚌𝚛𝚞𝚎𝚕𝚝𝚢-𝚏𝚛𝚎𝚎' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '𝚟𝚎𝚐𝚊𝚗' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
𝓷𝓸𝓽𝓮: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.
.
𝓮𝔁𝓪𝓶𝓹𝓵𝓮𝓼: swipe ➡️ to see a couple of real-life examples of products that are vegan 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙣𝙤𝙩 cruelty-free.
.
1️⃣ Garnier claims their Ultimate Blends and new Fructis hair products are ‘vegan’, explaining these products do not contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. But Garnier is actually not a cruelty-free brand, as Garnier does test on animals when required by law
.
2️⃣ In 2017, L’Oreal’s EverPure Shampoo and Conditioners were spotted with a ‘100% Vegan’ stamp on the packaging. L’Oreal claims these products are ‘vegan’ in which they don’t contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, but L’Oreal is definitely not a cruelty-free brand. L’Oreal does test on animals when required by law.
.
🔍 Look for products that are both cruelty-free 𝙖𝙣𝙙 vegan to ensure the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals 𝙖𝙣𝙙 it doesn't contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
.
Do you know of any other brands/products that claim to be vegan but isn't cruelty-free?🤔

CHOOSING CRUELTY-FREE MATTERS 🐰 to the millions of animals that are routinely blinded, poisoned, and killed each year for cosmetic testing. 💄💉🐇 It's not 𝒿𝓊𝓈𝓉 a mascara. And it may not be a life or death decision for you but it is for all the innocent animals used for product testing. 
You're either part of the solution or part of the problem. Which side would you like to be on?

Lancôme’s Animal Testing Policy 2017

This post may contain affiliate links.

Lancôme’s makeup, skin care, and fragrance line is sadly not cruelty-free. Lancôme sells their products in-stores in Mainland China where Chinese laws require all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals.

Lancôme is owned by L’Oreal, a corporation that continues to test on animals.

On both, L’Oreal’s and Lancôme’s website, it states:

“Today, L’Oréal no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule. Certain health authorities may nevertheless decide to conduct animal tests themselves for certain cosmetic products, as it is still the case in China.

Lancôme Sold in China

To prove that Lancôme products are in fact sold in stores in Mainland China, I used Lancôme’s store locator feature on their website to find several store listings that carry Lancôme products in-stores throughout Mainland China.

In order for Lancôme to sell their products in these stores in Mainland China, they must consent to have their products tested on animals and therefore Lancôme is not cruelty-free.

Until China changes their current laws that require all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals or Lancôme decides to stop selling in-stores in Mainland China, I would not consider Lancôme to be a cruelty-free.

    I posted some comments on Lancome Facebook page and they responded:

    Lancôme, a brand of L’Oreal, does not test any of its products or ingredients on animals and has been at the forefront of alternative methods for over 30 yrs. For more information, please click here:

    Can I trust it?

    I do believe L’Oreal no longer tests on animals but they need to go much further and quit selling in China where they do animal test L’Oreal and affiliate products for sale there. I’m sure there would be an uprising if L’Oreal and Estée Lauder quit selling there. Seriously. I worked for years representing Lancome and visitors from other countries, European and Asian countries, including China, would buy a lot of products to bring home. It was probably mainly for the price but nonetheless I had the impression especially the skin care products were very popular.

    I’m trying to become an official activist of cruelty free products and so through my research I came across this article. Can I trust it?

      I wouldn’t trust it. Especially since loreal has a very long history with animal testing that has nothing to do with China’s laws.
