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! ♻️ 🌍

Shiseido Brands – Which Ones are Cruelty-Free or Sold in China?

Posted on

Is Shiseido cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Shiseido is not a cruelty-free brand or corporation. Some of their ingredients are tested on animals, as well as, some of their finished products are tested on animals in order to sell in China.

It should be noted that 2 of Shiseido brands are PETA certified cruelty-free: BareMinerals and Buxom.

Shiseido’s Animal Testing Policy (2018)

Shiseido’s animal testing statement is very misleading because they claim that they stopped testing on animals since April 2013, but they actually haven’t because if you continue reading, it says “this excludes cases in which we must explain the safety to society.”

So that means Shiseido is in fact, still testing on animals even after April 2013. They go on to explain in what cases they are required to test on animals: 1) to prove the safety of their ingredients and 2) to sell in China where animal testing is required by Chinese laws.

Source: Shiseido

Shiseido is not forced to use ingredients that must be tested on animals or are they forced to sell in countries that require animal testing by law, but in doing so, Shiseido must pay and consent to have their products/ingredients tested on animals.

So I would not consider Shiseido or any of Shiseido’s brands that are sold in Mainland China to be cruelty-free because some of their ingredients and products are required to be tested on animals.

It should be noted that 2 of Shiseido’s brands are PETA certified cruelty-free brands: BareMinerals and Buxom. Both brands are not sold in China and are not required to be tested on animals. Both of these brands are in fact, certified cruelty-free by PETA.

When a corporation, as large as Shiseido, has over 40+ brands in its portfolio, it’s sometimes hard to tell which brands are selling in China, or certified cruelty-free, or brands that naturally inherit their parent company’s animal testing policy.

List of Shiseido Brands

I wanted to list out all of Shiseido’s brands to help with:

  • Figuring out which of Shiseido’s brands are cruelty-free
  • Knowing which of Shiseido’s brands are sold in Mainland China
  • If you don’t want to support anything associated with Shiseido, then use this list as a reference as you should avoid all the brands on this list

Sold in China – This brand distributes its products in China where animal testing is required by law

PETA Certified – This brand is PETA Certified Cruelty-Free

No notes – It has not been confirmed whether this brand sells in China, buy or boycott at your own discretion.
