Who is Cruelty Free?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I stumbled across this thread on my endless search for CF products. However, for me it is also vital that I am not purchasing products manufactured in sweatshops. The problem is: I'm really struggling to find CF and sweatshop free cosmetics. REALLY STRUGGLING! (like I'm about to never be able to wear make up again).

 

I was wondering if any of you fine young ladies and gentlemen, know of any brands that would fall under this category?

 

THANKS. x.

I don't think anyone has said this yet, but Sugarpill cosmetics is cruelty-free. And I have never been disappointed with the pigmentation or blendability. I absolutely adore their shadows. :)

I just saw that Tarte is being sold to a company that is not cruelty free. Tarte says that they will remain cruelty free, but I'm think if that other company wants to expand into China, they won't be for long.

Nooooooo! This breaks my heart, as I always thought I was safe with Tarte. Throughout I thought- at least I know I can count on Tarte to me all natural and cruelty-free. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Eugh!!!!

 

As long as the company who buys Tarte don't start selling Tarte in China, I'll still purchase. Once that's available in China, until China allows alternative ways to test cosmetics, I'll avoid Tarte.

 

This keeps happening and it's driving me nuts!

 

You take one step forward, two steps back. EUGH!

 

The best news has been the EU ban on animal-tested cosmetics, I just wish other regions would follow suit.

I think it'll take us contacting out congressmen and senators and putting the heat on to get the US to ban it. One member introduced a bill recently to ban it. But, Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act of 2013 bill that is out at committee level will actually would require it. Though it does fund looking for alternative testing which they hope to use at the end of 10 years of funding the bill. I contacted my local politicians, but I got a lot of flip floppy answers. It's not on the floor right now though, so it's not on their radar since they're not on the committee. My Beauty Bunny has articles about both bills.

-_- Interesting reading, I'm all for cruelty free cosmetics of any kind. :wub:

We have a couple of really awesome companies that are cruelty free in N.Z but they are a little pricey. :blush:

Our country just passed a law on testing on animals for synthetic highs and I'm hopeful for more change in regards to all animal testing regimes. ^_^

I love skincare but am wary of items that I'm not sure about their ethics concerning animal testing. :unsure:

Whatever we can do to make good changes and keep the safety and humane care of animals concerning testing is awesome and commendable. :wub:

Great post everyone and this thread will be watched by me for updates and info regarding this awesome discussion. :D

It's so sad that many of those brands aren't available in Asia. Animal testing isn't seen as a big deal and even encouraged in some cases. I wish affordable brands were more readily available around here.

I'm currently transitioning to a completely cruelty free routine. Just using up the stuff that I have left, and preparing to kiss my favorite Maybelline products goobye! (Which is so sad, really. I'm addicted to their color tattoos and mega plush mascara. But I'll do it for the furbabies!)

 

Right now I'm focusing specifically on animal cruelty. Once I've got that narrowed down, I'm going to start eliminating products that use unethical labor practices. I've noticed it's a lot harder to find out if a company uses sweatshop labor than if they test on animals.

I'm vegan so all about cruelty-free.  Here's a vegan/organic make-up video I made with vegan cruelty-free cosmetics. I hope you enjoy it. We can encourage cruelty-free products with our dollar so buy organic vegan!

    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
