Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options 💜

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence
❁ The Water Cream
❁ Violet-C Brightening Serum

Is Live Clean Tested on Animals or Cruelty-Free?

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
