Did you know @bitebeauty has some vegan lip products now? 💄✨ I've always wanted to try this Canadian 🇨🇦 makeup brand that specializes in lip products made with food-grade ingredients, and so I'm thrilled to hear they have some vegan options now! 🙌🏻 Including these intensely bold lip stains that are hydrating, long-wearing and lightweight! ❤️ All three shades (Sangria Slush, Strawberry Frozé, and Orange Fizz) are vegan and do not contain carmine or other animal products. 💋

Q: Is Aveeno Cruelty-Free?
A: Aveeno is not cruelty-free in 2019; Aveeno products and ingredients are tested on animals when required by law. Aveeno’s products are sold in-stores in mainland China, where all imported cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals in 2019.
It should also be noted that Aveeno is owned by Johnson & Johnson, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019.
Swipe to see what is currently stated on Aveeno's website 👉🏻 as well as evidence of their products sold in China. Because of Aveeno's decision to sell their products in mainland China, they must consent and pay the Chinese government to test their products on animals before they can sell in China. Therefore, we would NOT consider Aveeno to be cruelty-free.

🔥 Current Obsession! ✨ I've been religiously using this vegan cream contouring palette by cruelty-free + genderless makeup brand @jeccablac 🌸 it's perfect for creating both a natural or dramatic look ⚡️ blends like a dream and is buildable to a full-coverage.
As a contour newbie, I really liked the little informative booklet that also came with the palette! It’s been so helpful with teaching me what works best for my face shape! 👏🏻✨🌿
Are there any cruelty-free + vegan contour or highlighting products you’d recommend? 🐰

Is Live Clean Tested on Animals?

Live Clean is a Canadian eco-friendly hair and skincare brand, they use only natural, plant-sourced or non-petrochemical based ingredients that are renewable and sustainable. Live Clean also claims to only use 100% vegetarian ingredients.

I have seen Live Clean at my local Wal-mart and London Drugs and on their bottles, it says no animal testing but I couldn’t find details about their animal testing policy anywhere on the interweb! Their website briefly mentions that “no animals are directly or indirectly tested or harmed”.

Live Clean's Animal Testing Policy Live Clean is also not certified by either Leaping Bunny or PETA and not on any known cruelty-free lists that I follow now certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny program! (UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017) So naturally I decided to contact them directly. I have been waiting to hear a response from them for months and I’m happy to finally share the good news with you all and that is, Live Clean is indeed a cruelty-free brand with  some vegan options! 

Below you will find Live Clean’s response about their animal testing policy:

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding our Live Clean® Product. We apologize for the delay in our reply and appreciate your patience.

Live Clean® products are 100% cruelty free, they are never tested on animals. We also work with our suppliers to ensure that none of the individual ingredients are tested on animals. Our products use 100% vegetarian ingredients.  Check the specific product label for the following cruelty free animal byproducts like honey, hydrolyzed milk and beeswax to determine if it is suitable for your lifestyle:

Honey: Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Smoothing Shampoo, Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Smoothing Conditioner, Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Protective Thermal Spray, Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Leave In Treatment

Hydrolyzed Milk Protein: Coconut Milk Shampoo, Coconut Milk Conditioner, Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash, Coconut Oil Moisturizing Liquid Hand Soap, Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Lotion

Cera Alba (Beeswax): Clean Air Weightless Conditioner, Exotic Shine Bali Oil Nutri-Shine Conditioner, Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Restorative Conditioner, Exotic Vitality Monoï Oil Conditioner, Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Smoothing Conditioner, Sensitive Hypoallergenic Conditioner, Coconut Milk Conditioner, Exotic Nectar Argan Oil Leave-In Conditioner Spray, Exotic Vitality Monoï Leave-In Conditioner Spray, Age Resist Conditioner, Gentle Moisture Non-Petroleum Jelly, Soothing Oatmeal Relief Non-Petroleum Jelly, Protecting Lip Balm, Moisturizing Lip Balm, Soothing Lip Balm, Gentle Moisture Diaper Ointment, Soothing Oatmeal Relief Diaper Ointment

From the initial email response, they didn’t address third party testing or whether they sell in China so a follow-up was neccessary. Here is the second email response:

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for your reply regarding our Live Clean® Product. We do not hire 3rd parties to test our products on animals and our products are not currently distributed internationally in China.

I am happy to be able to support another Canadian cruelty-free and eco-friendly brand like Live Clean! I’ve tried a few of their body wash before and they’re such a great drugstore option!

    I bought a travel pack with Live Clean’s daily moisturizer, nighttime moisturizer, cleanser, and exfoliating cleanser. I love them all! I just bought a full size daily moisturizer at Shoppers for $17.99. Felt like good value to me! I also love their conditioner (I haven’t tried their shampoo). This morning I needed to know if they test on animals. I am so happy to find out that they don’t! They should really include that info on their packaging. Thanks for your post!

    Thank you for doing this and touching base with the company its self. I have seen “No animal testing” on Live Clean website, but because their products have no actual symbols, this is great for backing up their word about NOT testing on animals.
    I appreciate you sharing this, and taking the time to find out more information.
    Thanks a bunch!

      You’re very welcome and I’m so happy to hear that it was helpful to you! =)

      EDIT: Just wanted to add, after I responded to your comment.. I checked to see if Live Clean was certified cruelty-free since publishing this post, and I’m happy to update this post to say that Live Clean is now CERTIFIED cruelty-free by The Leaping Bunny program! This ensures their cruelty-free claims have been verified by a third party organization! Yippeee!

    I have few shopping options in my small town except Walmart, which is bad enough so glad this is cruelty free.

    Awesome! Can you please look into a shampoo brand called “Maui”? They say they’re cruelty free but not certified or on cruelty free blogs etc
