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»

Coty Brands – Which Ones are Cruelty-Free or Sold in China?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Is Coty cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Coty is not a cruelty-free corporation, their products are tested on animals in China where animal testing is required for all imported cosmetics.

Coty Inc’s Animal Testing Policy

Source: Coty

“We do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals, except where required by law.

All our products are safe and have been developed, manufactured and packaged in compliance with the laws, regulations and guidelines that are applicable in each country in which they are sold”ο»Ώ

According to Coty’s animal testing policy, their products are tested on animals in some countries they sell to, namely in China, where animal testing is required by law.

This is also validated when Coty states “It is common knowledge that China requires mandatory animal tests on all cosmetic products imported into the country.” 

Therefore, I would not consider Coty or any of their brands that are sold in Mainland China to be cruelty-free.

When a corporation, as large as Coty, has over 50+ brands in its portfolio, it’s sometimes hard to tell which brands are selling in China, or certified cruelty-free, or brands that naturally inherit their parent company’s animal testing policy.

In my research, I found that almost all of Coty brands I reached out to, responded back to me with Coty’s animal testing policy. So although there may be no evidence of some of their brands selling in China, but almost all of Coty’s brands inherits their parent company’s animal testing policy, with the disclaimer that they test on animals when required by law.

    Is cover girl cruelty free or not? They say they are but, there is no bunny on their packaging.

    You would do better to discuss the Chinese policy instead of any company who trades in China.

    You will find it very hard to find any company that does not, historically has not, or be forced by foreign countries to currently animal test.

    Why not put your passion to good use instead of bitching about legitimate companies?

      Thanks for the feedback.

      I have lots of articles talking about China’s animal testing laws, thank you very much. (see below for a list)

      Yes, at some point.. every ingredient, including water, may have been tested on animals in the past. But what we can do NOW is prevent any MORE animal tests from happening. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can definitely avoid testing cosmetics and their ingredients on animals from this point forward.

      And for the companies that have CHOSEN to sell in China knowing that they’ll have to test their products/ingredients on animals is NOT OK in my books. This article is showcasing some of those brands that have decided to sell in China and for those of us who don’t want to support those companies may find this list helpful.

      I’m going to “bitch” about these non-cruelty-free companies till the day we see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics and if you don’t like what you’re reading then BYE, FELICIA.

        Girl YES, thank you.

        Animal testing is completely unnecessary in this day & age. Moving forward, companies should take note and make the change, and stop imposing unnecessary cruelty onto the voiceless.
