    Does MUA also have a Safety Data Sheet for their products? I really need it for business matter.
    Can anyone have a copy?Can you share it to me?

    Thanks a lot

    I have just discovered MUA! But I wish I knew which products are vegan and which ones aren’t. From their recent reply some or all may be vegan.
    It will be great if they can eventually provide more details and list the vegan products if any.
    Great that more companies are going cruelty free. Hopefully more will follow.
    The big named brands who still test or use products that have already been tested on animals should be ashamed of themselves!

    Some of their products don’t contain any animal ingredients; I checked on the Skin Deep database then tweeted them about specific ingredients and they got back to me ๐Ÿ™‚

      Really? That’s fantastic! =) I’m happy to hear MUA is willing to disclose that kind of information about their ingredients! Hopefully they’re working on releasing a vegan product list soon!! =)

      Thanks for sharing Jenny!
