DID YA HEAR? LUSH recently announced it will be removing eggs from all its beauty products! πŸ₯šπŸš«
.
"All of our products will now officially be egg-free. But never fear, your fave Lush goodies will be as effective as ever thanks to some egg-citing ingredient replacements."
.
LUSH is cruelty-free with mostly vegan products, but some of their beauty products still contain some animal by-products like lanolin, honey, and/or milk. Hopefully, they're working on becoming a 100% vegan brand in the near future! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€žπŸ»

BUNNY 🐰 LOVE 🧑. I just found out bunnies can start reproducing as young as 4 months old and are pregnant for 30 days, having litters of 4-12 babies. They can have 800 children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren during their lifetime!! 😳 Meanwhile, I'm over here just trying to drink enough water throughout the day πŸ˜…

Scotch Naturals is Cruelty-Free but No Longer Vegan

Scotch Naturals is Cruelty Free But No Longer Vegan

Scotch Naturals is known for their all-natural premium nail lacquers that are free of parabens, phthalates, and other toxic ingredients you’d find in conventional nail polish.

Admittedly, I’ve never tried any of Scotch Naturals nail polish before and unfortunately it looks like I will never get the chanceΒ because all of their new nail lacquers are made from shellac, a by-product from the lac bug.

Shellac is a natural resin secreted by a tiny species of insect (laccifer lacca) that is native to India and Thailand. The lac bug spends its six-month life cycle in unimaginably large colonies feeding, and breeding on small, shrub sized trees called lac trees. As they feed on the sap of these small trees they secrete lac much as bees secrete wax. This resinous material is then harvested from the trees to be purified and is used as a natural lacquer. ~Scotch Naturals

If you’ve purchased Scotch Naturals’ nail polish in the past, thoseΒ should beΒ vegan. You can tell whether they are vegan or not by the packaging; the older (vegan) formula has the type ‘SCOTCH’ much larger than the word ‘NATURALS’. Β When in doubt, Β email the company if you’re not sure.

Scotch Naturals No Longer Vegan

Their new formula that uses shellac is called “NaturaLaq” so if you see this on a bottle of Scotch Naturals’ or in the product description… then you’ll know it isn’t vegan-friendly.

Despite that Scotch Naturals nail polish are no longer vegan-friendly, they are still a cruelty-free brand that does not test on animals. I received an email response from one of their reps and they’ve confirmed that Scotch Naturals:

  • does not test ingredients and final product on animals
  • does not commission third parties to test on animals on their behalf
  • none of their ingredient’s suppliers test on animals*
  • does not sell in China

*they verify this by having all of theirΒ suppliers fill out a lengthy and in depth Raw Material Questionnaire asking if they test on animals. Scotch Naturals will not use a raw material that has been tested on animals
