Urban Decay Promises To Remain Cruelty Free

The past few months have been pretty crazy for fans of Urban Decay who only use cruelty free and/or vegan cosmetics. First the brand announced their plans to sell in China (where animal testing is required by law), then they went back on that decision. Last week it was announced that L’Oreal bought Urban Decay. L’Oreal is notoriously known as one of the worst offenders when it comes to animal testing, so this raised quite …

Animal Ingredients – What is Lanolin?

One of the most commonly used animal ingredients in cosmetics is lanolin. It’s most frequently found in lotions and lipsticks – anything that needs to be moisturizing. What exactly is it that you’re putting on your skin with these products? Lanolin is a waxy yellow substance that is secreted by the glands of wool bearing mammals. Typically, this means from sheep. It’s also called wool wax or wool grease. Just like lactoferrin, once you find …

L’Oreal Buys Urban Decay – Will They Keep Their Cruelty Free Stance?

A few months ago, cosmetics brand Urban Decay announced that they were going to change their stance on animal testing in order to sell their products in China. Despite publicly changing their stance on testing, Urban Decay also continued to market products as vegan. After a large public outcry, they reversed this decision to sell in China and went back to their cruelty free ways. Now there is yet another twist in the Urban Decay …

Animal Ingredients – What is Lactoferrin?

When I first came across lactoferrin, it was in a hair pomade. Having never heard of it before, I decided to do some research into what exactly lactoferrin is. What I found out is that lactoferrin is derived from secretory fluids. Medically, it is …

Benefit Cosmetics is Not Cruelty Free

Benefit Cosmetics is Not Cruelty Free

If there is a company with a public stance on animal testing more confusing than Benefit Cosmetics, I’ve yet to find it. It’s taken me over a year to find a stable and steady stance from this brand. When Logical Harmony first changed to being a vegan beauty blog, I received six different replies from Benefit about their stance on animal testing. Six! That was enough for me to assume that they were not a …

Sephora Collection Cosmetics are No Longer Cruelty Free

It breaks my heart to add another brand to the list of those now testing on animals in order to sell in China. The most recent to be added is the Sephora Collection brand. Sephora’s name brand has long been know for offering quality cruelty free cosmetics at decent prices. For some time I have depended on them to give me the cruelty-free knock offs to items that I love but will not buy. They …
