stila cosmetics cruelty free

Is Stila Cruelty-Free in 2019? We Answer this Burning Question

There is a fair amount of confusion as to whether Stila is cruelty-free or not. In large part that is because several years ago Stila, which had been cruelty-free, stopped being cruelty-free, as they were selling in China, which requires animal testing of products imported into China - to be clear, China does the testing on animals once the finished product arrives in China. They also have been known to pull an imported product from a shelf and test it - again, on animals. Continue reading [...]

Maureen Kelly Sells Formerly Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Company Tarte, to Non-Cruelty-Free Kose, Insults Consumers with Smoke and Mirrors

Tarte vegetarian and cruelty-free cosmetics is no longer cruelty-free after selling out to Kose Cosmetics. Hi, all of you cruelty-free fashionistas, Jess here. I'm a contributing writer to Vegetarian Beauty Products and I'm here because I'm upset. No, I'm furious. Tarte, one of our favorite cosmetic brands to review, has sold out to a bigger company, Kose comsetics, who still tests on animals. They then had the nerve to insult its consumers by trying to distance themselves from their new parent company by saying that Tarte will remain cruelty-free, as if consumers can't figure out that, any dollars that go to Tarte, will ultimately end up in the hands of animal-testing Kose.

Elegant Minerals Cruelty-free, Vegan Theatrical Costume Makeup

When seeking out cruelty-free, vegan makeup, many wouldn’t even think of theatrical or costume makeup. It is certainly not the type of makeup that most need to wear on a regular basis, but safe costume makeup is important to consider because most theatrical cosmetics contain damaging, harsh ingredients that are known to be widely tested on animals. Lead and parabens are among the nasty chemicals commonly found in stage makeup that cause rashes, breakouts, redness and dry, itchy skin. Continue reading [...]

Howard’s Vegan, Cruelty-Free Soap

We especially love supporting small businesses that create cruelty-free, vegan beauty products.

The Body Shop proved as much when they decided to sell themselves to infamous animal-testing company, L’Oreal. Continue reading [...]

Vegetarian and Vegan Beauty Product Certifications

There are plenty of products out there that bear different certifications from varying certifying agencies, but what does all of this mean? Like the terms “vegetarian” and “vegan,” it is largely open to interpretation and personal standards. That is why, ultimately, it is up to you as the consumer to empower yourself with the knowledge of the different ingredients commonly used in beauty products, and their implications in the world of animal welfare. Where one person does not consider honey to be an animal byproduct, someone else does and would never use it. Continue reading [...]

What Vivisection Is and Its Use in the Cosmetic and Beauty Products Industry

Vivisection is a term that make many shudder, even if they do not know what it means. Vivisection is technically defined as procedures, such as surgical (minor and major) that are performed on living beings, for the purpose of performing experiments. While vivisection, or animal testing, is conducted for many purposes, such as medical procedures and pharmaceuticals, we will be focusing on the use of animal testing in personal care items, such as cosmetics, hygiene products and other general beauty products. Continue reading [...]

All About the Leaping Bunny Program

As the demand for cruelty-free products became more prevalent, there came an emerging need to create a consistent set of standards by which to measure if a product was in fact truly cruelty free (and we hasten to add that "cruelty free" does not necessarily mean vegan, or even vegetarian, but more on that later). In response to this need for organized standards, eight national animal welfare groups formed an alliance: the American Anti-Vivisection Society, the Animal Alliance of Canada, Beauty Without Cruelty, the Doris Day Animal League, the Humane Society of Canada, the Humane Society of the United States, the MSPCA Center for Laboratory Animal Welfare and the New England Ant-Vivisection Society. Continue reading [...]

All About Cruelty-free, Vegan and Vegetarian Certifications: What They Mean, and What They Don’t Mean

We write a lot about cruelty-free, vegan and vegetarian certifications when reviewing different beauty products. There are certainly plenty of certifying agencies out there, each one using different factors in determining who gets certified by them, and who doesn’t. While there are many certifying agencies that are well-known both internationally, and nationally, such as the Leaping Bunny program, and PETA’s well known list of cruelty-free companies, each one has standards that vary in strictness. Continue reading [...]
