Quantcast
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 😔 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?? 💕

Ain't nuthin but a V-GANG,...

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! 💋 They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! 🍉 🍉 🍉  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 👌🏻
.
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.

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?

      “Thanks to this, since 2014, certain products manufactured and sold in China like shampoo, body wash or certain make-up are no longer tested on animals.”

      It says that in the last sentence of their paragraph. The entire statement sounds wishy washy, to be honest, so in all I don’t trust it at all.

    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.

    Have you read this?

    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.
