Want to know if your wine is vegan? Check out barnivore.com, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian beer, wine, and liquor 🍻 β€œwhen making the product, dairy, honey, and other things are ingredients in the final recipe. When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies can use things like isinglass (from fish bladder), gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products grab onto the impurities and make it easier to catch them in the filters, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.” πŸ₯‚πŸΎ

Loving the simple, clean, and vegan ingredients in this nourishing ELIXIR nail and cuticle oil by @madam_glam! πŸ’› Contains only three ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E & Vitamin B) to help soften dry cuticles and keep them moisturized for a perfect mani πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
.
There is virtually no scent to this cuticle oil, so this would be perfect for someone who is sensitive to fragrances or for someone who doesn’t like lingering scents on their hands when using a hand cream or oil.
.
I also appreciate the recyclable packaging and reusable glass bottle + dropper! ♻️ 🌍

If You Thought Organix (OGX) Was Cruelty-Free, Think Again!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Organix (OGX) was once known to be a cruelty-free brand but OGX was removed from PETA’s cruelty-free list when they found out OGXΒ was sold in mainland ChinaΒ where animal testing for imported cosmetics is required by law.

Organix-Animal-Testing

Johnson & Johnson Acquires OGX

OGX was owned by Vogue International.

But Johnson & Johnson just announced their recentΒ acquisition of Vogue International and therefore OGX is now owned by Johnson & Johnson.

Johnson & Johnson admits that they still test their products/ingredients on animals, especially “when required by law.”

OGX Animal Testing Statement

Here is OGX statement about their animal testing policy from their website’s FAQ page:

Organix-Not-Cruelty-Free

OGX Sold in Mainland China

I have yet to find solid evidence if OGX products are available in stores in mainland China however multiple online sources received responses from OGX or Vogue International saying,Β “Given that there are countries that require animal testing by law, we do our best to respect governing law and regulations set by that governing body” (Source: Cruelty-Free Kitty)

This implies that OGX and/or Vogue International are selling in countries that require animal testing (ie. China).

Regardless, one thing we’re sure of is that Johnson & Johnson is definitely not a cruelty-free corporation and admits to testing on animals.

johnson-and-johnson-animal-testing

Johnson & Johnson Tests On Animals!

With Johnson & Johnson’s recent acquisition of Vogue International (and OGX), I don’t see OGX becoming a cruelty-free brand again in the near future. I think this move was a huge step back for the brand and the statement made on their FAQ page is now sadly outdated and misleading.

How do you feel about OGX now being owned by Johnson & Johnson?

    I think you haven’t done your research on this. I believe OGX is cruelty-free.

    Noooo! I’ve been using OGX because they have the “not tested on animals” label on their bottles… If that’s the case, they are cheating their customers??

    Thanks for sharing this!

      Sadly the label “not tested on animals” can virtually mean whatever companies what it mean since it’s not regulated by anyone.

      So companies can label their products to say “this PRODUCT was not tested on animals” when in fact, the INGREDIENTS were tested on animals or they can say something like “WE don’t test on animals” when in fact, they are hiring OTHERS to test their products/ingredients on animals on their behalf.

      Hopefully one day, animal testing for cosmetics will be banned and we won’t have to deal with these labeling loopholes and disingenuous companies trying to pass off like they care about animals
