Horrific. I refuse to buy from organisations that test on animals.
✳ I will do a vegan cosmetics post. I needed to get that #veganrant out f my system.
L'Oreal is disgusting!!!
OH EM GEE
@thevikb I thought I was on top of my game, but I did not know about Pureology. I was pretty angry this afternoon after I found out. So horrible that it still goes on 💔
😱😡 isn't Ellen Degeneres, a "vegan", a loreal spokesperson?!
@kjchan88 OMG. Do not get me started on that....
I have found a beautiful company here in Oz that offers vegan skin care - and their products are lovely. We have a cruelty free body that lists cruelty free skin care and make up
Companies on their site - http://www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/vegan.html
@thevikb but now you know!
Actually cover girl, but they're all the same anyway.
@hollowgoretrip Revlon does not test on animals, but most of their cosmetics have animal ingredients. I'll do a post tomorrow on what to look for when shopping for cosmetics.
This is where death row inmates need to be swapped in. I'm sure they could make a deal with them, like test products on them and not put them down. Why not? Cause 'Merica is bass ackwards. Murderers, rapists, terrorists etc. are in prison because they abused their rights, which get taken when they go to prison, but somehow still have those rights? Or it would be "cruel" to test on them instead. Fuck the constitution and fuck the amendments. I think about this every day and it infuriates me.
Why are companies still even testing? How can it be justified? Surely we know by now how to produce safe hairspray, eye shadow, fragrances etc for humans. Whhhhyyyyyy 😡
It's great that there are sooo many great options out there. And that there are affordable options, too :) its as simple as googling the product. And we can do it on our handy smart phones!!!
@bon_bims I totally agree! I much rather see rapists and murders being tested on than poor innocent animals.
@crazykrw What's annoying to me is that the top google results for "L'Oreal animal testing" are on how animal friendly they are. They haven't stopped testing. They've gotten a pretty bad rep and it seems like one of those "here's some money, look how great we are, now shut up" kind of deals. Beautifully played PR stunt. When they stop killing rabbits, I'll believe them
@kjchan88 Exactly! And the vegan products don't have parabens and other harmful ingredients
Now that's just sick. First of all, putting those chemicals on our bodies, but to have another animal be the test subject just to simply see what happens if a human were to endure the same, that's pure experimentation & goes against what being pure is all about
@bon_bims I always say the same thing, I totally agree.
@hollowgoretrip I'll post in this further, but here's a quick list: * Carmine,cochineal = Red coloring made from crushed beetles. Mostly used in lipsticks.(also referred as Crimson Lake, Natural Red 4, CI75470.)* Lanolin = wool fat.* Beeswax/pollen/propolis/ cera alba/ honey = bee derived products.* Lard, tallow = animal fat.* Lactose/ lactalbumin/whey = milk products.* Silk derivative* Elastin (from cows)
I used to love the body shop, when it was still an independent company. I have not bought a single product from there since #loreal bought the body shop. They may not test on animals for products under the body shop's name, but I refuse to let any of my dollars go towards such an evil company.
Fuck. I use Pureology. I researched it when it first came out and couldn't find any 'parent' co. So many decent cos being bought out by fuckers like L'Oreal, P&G, Unilever et al :(
@whoopseydaisy I just found out today. Hell, I recommended them in my last post. It happens to the best of us.
What about Paul Mitchell? They don't endorse or conduct animal testing.
@whoopseydaisy I'm not sure about their ingredients if they got bought up by one of the big bad corps- but Paul Mitchell does not test on animals
The body shop claim to be cruelty free! I was in there yesterday!! They even have signage!!!
I'm going in there tomorrow to ask them. This is actual bullshit. I was going to buy some oils from there. So glad I didn't. SO ANGRY!!!
@charleysdg They are cruelty free, so is Pureology but they are both owned by L'Oreal 💔 I stopped buying Tom's after I found out they were bought by Colgate Palmolive. Sometimes I feel like I have to be a detective just to buy something compassionate.
Thank you so much for posting this. Honestly, I would have felt like the worst person in the world for purchasing from there. How can they say they are cruelty free?
@charleysdg Because they're a smaller company owned by a corporation. They're still "the body shop" but where their money goes changes
Exactly!! The money is still eventually going to a conglomerate that DO test in animals. Fuck that for a grey area. I'm disgusted & boycotting them. Ugh. I wonder if the staff even know? I'm sticking to Sukin & Aesop.
@charleysdg Here's the thing, you can't beat yourself up for not knowing. I didn't know about Pureology until this afternoon. It's what you do once you do know that makes the difference. Taking action, getting the word out, changing what we buy- that's what we should focus on. I will admit, I felt like I made a huge blunder this afternoon. I'm so careful, but everyone makes mistakes.
wow that is absolutely shocking!!!! i am appalled!!!! there is no such thing as BEAUTY OVER ANIMAL CRUEL CRUEL CRUEL CRUELTY!!! never. they should be sued, factories should be burnt. why the hell do we test on animals? we dont have the same skin, we dont have fur, we dont have the same biological makeup, we are completely and utterly different. but animals still feel pain as much as we do. why test on them and wait for a reaction? it just disgusts me that these companies rake in billions and billions of money for murdering, testing, cruelling using an absuing animals. @vegansofig
Of course. And that will certainly change now. Thanks for the heads up! 🐇☣☢Ⓥ
Thank you so so much for posting me this. That's terrible. I love rabbits and all animals, but I never do it them. I HATE people, who do that. :'(:'(:'(

I love Australian #livingnature #organic #cosmetics without animal ingredients and animal tests. And my own homemade #selfmade cosmetics (soap, shampoo, etc.)
What about Yves Rocher and M.A.C.?
The Body Shop n'utilise pas les lapins ! Ils ne font pas de tests sur les animaux ! @vegansofig
I use nude by nature. Do you know any info on this product whether they test on animals or if
They are safe to use? I love
@vegansofig thx for keeping these issues fresh for us. It's so easy to turn a blind eye to situations such as this and console ourselves with the thought that there are millions (billions?) more mindless consumers such as ourselves so what does it matter if we buy a seven-dollar tube of grocery store mascara. But it does matter, and every swipe of a barcode is a vote of "Yes" to anything and everything the producer of that product does. Thx for reminding me why it is imperative that I vote "No!" by eschewing unethical products and companies and supporting those that represent my personal ethics instead. Bravo, ma'am. ❤🐰❤
@julie_legoff Désolé ! Mon français est mauvais, donc j'ai écrit cela au traducteur. The Body Shop ne teste pas sur les animaux, mais ils sont la propriété de L'Oreal. l'argent de The Body Shop va finalement L'Oreal et fonds tests sur les animaux.
Ah d'accord, je ne le savais pas ! ;p
@julie_legoff C'est bien ! Nous apprendre quelque chose de nouveau tous les jours. C'est la vie ❤
Can't take it.
The Body Shop?!?! Oh, no. ):
Do you know anything about IsaDora? They say that they don't test on animals but I don't know if they use anything from animals.
@natasha_shoykhet Yves Rocher does not. I don't think MAC does as a company, but they are owned by Estée Lauder which just resumed testing on animals 💔
@_savetheworld_ That's the Australian company, right? Nude By Nature does not test on animals.
@chaseselby Could not agree more 👏👏
@bonniies Looked them up. They do not test on animals- couldn't find out as much on their ingredients, but they are cruelty free
@vegansofig Thank you ❤
I'm with @themichalives - Facebook/tumblr it up! Spread the knowledge even further.
Awesome shit @ vegansofig
@themichalives @charleysdg Yup! Twitter @vegansofig Facebook.com/vegansofig and vegansofig.tumblr.com I have a pintrest too but I don't update it as often
Wow. I had no idea they had a price of so many companies! :(
@vegansofig wtf I work at sephora and we sell a lot of those frangrance under the l'oreal umbrella and u can bet ur bottom dollar I will be spreading the word today at that made me want to cry. That will be my fact of the day to tell my clients.
What cosmetic labels is save for a vegan to use? What dó you buy @vegansofig ?
Exactly what I was thinking, @dobbsgirl.
@vegansofig thanks DJ much for posting this makes so much ppl aware cant believe how many brands they own
Jesus. Ive started using St. Ives because they say they dont test on animals. I hate to think you cant use a brand because its parent company are f*cking scumbags. 😔
That's hideous :(
Here I thought Body Shop was good:(
My daughter said yesterday they should test their products on death row inmates!
I can appreciate this post as I have found that in my transitioning it has been difficult to find cruelty free and completely animal free beauty products. I think that distinction should be made or maybe a follow up post. Because like some people mentioned above, I Thought for a long time that if they didn't test on animals or had the PETA symbol, the company was humane but that is actually not true at all. In fact, there are few completely vegan beauty companies. More and more are emerging each day, which is exciting and they're coming into the mainstream stores, which is awesome but it's important to recognize that just because something says "No Animal TEsting" doesn't mean they aren't using horse bones for your freaking mascara. It's terrible. I absolutely do not want to smudge animals on my cheek or in my hair. The shit we create to be so vain. I'm completely guilty but I'm learning and the more I learn the sadder it is but it's also an opportunity to change and educate others. Thanks for all your informative posts :)
Ruined my morning (poor bunnies), but I'm glad I know
Thanks For the info... I unfortunately have a lot of those brands right now and I feel gross! But at least I know now. I think the hardest part of being vegan for me is the everything besides the food... So I really enjoy these posts @vegansofig
I'm glad to know about pureology. I didn't know they were bought out by evil loreal. Makes me so mad. These days it feels like any large corporation is evil 😒
I don't understand how this is legal 💔
This makes me wanna put my middle fingers up at L'oreal! Thanks for sharing to help aware others of this cruelty
And the fact they tried to come out with 'vegan' products is like a slap in the face... Animal testing is uncalled for. Mostly when they need in human testing for things like pharm/biologics....
@vegansofig I use L'Oreal Sleek shampoo and conditioner. It says 100% vegan and no animal testing. 😥😓
I hate L'oreal soooo hard
I could of sworn I read that YSL wasn't testing on animals.
As far as I know, L'Oreal still has all of the sub companies test the ingredients of products on animals so Pureology many not be too far from it
Thank you for the info
I had no idea. Thank you.
What?! The body shop?! Noooooooooooo! I guess i have a legit reason to return my products back :) thanks for the info
Yes Loreal may own The Body Shop, but they've never changed their values & continue to use CFT products that aren't tested on animals - this week they've launched a new campaign for people to sign to make testing on animals completely illegal
Abba all the way! Ingredients are all vegan and their products are awesome!
Omg. That makes me so frustrated!!!! Why they have to make good products and then just ruin it by being assholes to other beings? Lancome, ysl, vichy, diesel, armani... Omg.
::sigh:: sayonara maybelline...we had a good run! Thanks @vegansofig as always for keeping our eyes open and our wallets shut to evil-doers
It's horrible how the majority of brands either do or are linked with unnecessary animal testing. Can you recommend any good brands that use other alternatives?
@vegansofig should I not buy from pureology anymore?? I don't know what to do ugh I love their products
This opened up my eyes a lot! I just switched to crueltyfree products I was not educated before thank you! Its disgusting what they do!
WHAT? PUREOLOGY?! When did this happen😖
@freshraab About 2-3 years ago. I had no idea until a few days ago. I just fount out bare escentuals got bought by shiseido. Why are all of my fav companies getting bought by evil empires? It's not fair 😔
I think it is weird that #thebodyshop let loreal buy them out. Working for the body shop I learned the terrible things that people do to animals and as a company we are so against that. It doesn't make sense. Ugh.
I use mac I hope its not bad like loreal
I have a question about L'Oreal. They sell a sulfate free line labeled as vegan. Is it truly vegan or bull?
@shemeetsfashion check this out
is the body Shop vegan?
Why do they do this to ANIMALS while we have murderers and theives in jail?!?? My cousins murderer deserves to be tested on first
As a hairstylist @vegansofig ... Pureology not only sold out to animal abusers, but their products are loaded with petrochemicals!
You've gotta understand though that in the science field, not cosmetic, but biology fields at universities, animals are being tested on, little cats are being used to test eye sight with helmets in their heads into their brains, nothing will stop this. Understand that the world is shitty, and this will go on forever and ever and that people get desensitized while working on them for research. In a small town in Paraguay, children are being poisoned with mercury and children are being raped somewhere else. I've just been around science far too much to know that everything is shitty and cruel but there's nothing we can do about it
😳😳😳😭good to know !!! That's so fucking sad!!!!!
Thanks for posting this. I just bought some of their product because it checked out as vegan. Definitely going to return it. I don't want to support anything that company does.
