For today's Is (BLANK) Cruelty Free? I'm going to be focusing on the brand Kat Von D Beauty. I've tried a few things from this brand before including their studded kiss lipsticks, holographic alchemist palette, and shade & light contour palette. And there are other things that I really want to try out, I also saw on her Instagram that they are coming out with a Saint & Sinner Eyeshadow palette which looks really interesting. So I might just get that when it comes out. But we're not focusing on the various products today, we're focusing on the animal testing policy of Kat Von D Beauty.
The criteria I use to determine if a brand is cruelty free are the following:
- Don't test finished products or ingredients on animals.
- Don't have suppliers who test on animals.
- Don't allow any third parties to test on animals on their behalf.
- Don't sell cosmetics in physical store in mainland China.
- Don't test on animals where required by law.
