Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

This list is wrong. Sephora Collection is not cruelty free. And if Victoria’s Secret was, it’s not anymore.
Why? Because both sell in China. And China has regulations that only permit the sale of cosmetic products that have been animal tested. MAC was cruelty free until they entered the China market. And this is why LUSH will never sell in the China market, at least as long as that regulation stands.
I went to the Sephora China site and they DO sell their store brand cosmetics in China. And Victoria’s Secret announced last month that they are going to be opening stores in China, but purely as cosmetic and beauty stores for now. No lingerie yet. So if they weren’t animal tested before, they will be soon. These are two companies that clearly care more about their markets and profits more than standing by their ethics.
LUSH (83% of products are vegan) and Urban Decay (100% vegan) are my jam though. LUSH actually sponsors an annual $250k competition each year to sponsor five plans of action seeking alternatives to animal testing.
And if you’re avoiding these brands as a vegan, Burt’s Bees? Really? Why is that on this list?
Please help my comment get spread around to correct misinformation. 

The Body Shop and Urban Decay are both owned by L’Oreal who test on animals!
