I received some great news yesterday. As many of you know long before I became a vegan I’ve always opted for cruelty free beauty products. No animal testing please. Thanks to Leaping Bunny and PETA I’ve managed to stick to this. (Thankful too that my beloved Korean products also don’t!). For a long time it was down to the company’s ethics if they tested or not. A few years ago the EU banned all cosmetic animal testing with various organisations putting pressure on other countries to follow. So many brands I’ve avoid mainly due to China. I found out a few years ago while some companies say they don’t test on animals, if they sell physically in stores in China that means the products have been subjected to 3rd party animal testing as required by Chinese law, for all imported cosmetics. China did ban a few years ago animal testing on domestic products but imported products were still required to be tested. This meant I’ve left a lot of products on the shelf.
Care2 announced yesterday that China will soon allow importation of non animal tested cosmetics!. Which is fantastic news, if and when it happens! Continue reading “October November Beauty Finds”

I hope you’re having a great weekend! This week’s flown by in a blur of food shopping. Every day this week there’s been something to get from different shops all over. I’m not complaining too much, I’m lucky to have food. It’s just that sometimes I like a non grocery shop!
