The Dollar Beauty Tribe is proud to be 100% vegan and cruelty free so none of our products, or their ingredients, are tested on animals. They also don’t contain any animal products or by products. Here’s why:
TESTING ON ANIMALS
Firstly, and most importantly, we love our planet and we love animals. We sell beauty products and skin care and, in our opinion, there is absolutely no need to test on animals.
You need to be very careful with what has and hasn’t been tested on animals. It’s always best to go with certified brands who have been thoroughly audited to ensure their product, and their ingredients, meet their strict certifications.
Currently product that are sold physically in China can be subject to testing on animals. This is why a lot of multi-national brands are not Cruelty-free certified.
We don’t believe that it is necessary that skin care, hair care and make up use animal parts or parts produced by animals. There are lots of great plant alternatives.
There are ingredients such as Carmine, or Cochineal Dye, used in a lot of make up which is crushed beetles and you’ll find it frequently used in lipsticks and so-called ‘cruelty free’ brands.
Here’s some of the main ones to look out for:
Lanolin: a waxy substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of sheep.
Gelatin: a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. Gelatin is used in shampoos, face masks, and other cosmetics. Yes, women put this on our face and bodies daily!
Tallow: an animal fat that’s a common ingredient in many cosmetics including eye makeup, lipstick, makeup bases and foundations.
We encourage you to do your own research and know exactly what’s in your bathroom.
