Wikipedia states "In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."
And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!
At Mommy Makeup, we can assure you that our products are certified cruelty-free with PETA, in the US and globally! In fact, we are part of PETA’s Beauty without Bunnies program!!
In China, imported cosmetic brands are still required to test on animals. Therefore if a brand sells their products in China, then they are paying to have those products tested on animals in China, even though the brand may not test on animals for products they sell in the US market.
L’Oréal, does not test on animals in the United States, but does animal testing in China by law, in order for their products to be sold there.
Recently, there was a huge backlash when Nars Cosmetics, which claimed to be a cruelty-free company, decided to sell their makeup in the Chinese market... Sooooo, this meant the company would need to do animal testing of their products. For more about the Nars backlash read here.
