Urban Decay (not vegan friendly anymore)

Urban Decay – decides not to sell in China!

Fick nyss reda på att Urban Decay bestämt sig för att inte sälja i Kina!

Jättebra att de ångrade sig!! Men jag har redan tappat förtroendet för dem nu… Vad tycker ni? Så här skriver de på sin hemsida:

Animal Testing Policy

Urban Decay is a cruelty-free brand and is committed to ending animal testing. We do not test our finished products on animals, nor do we allow others to test on our behalf. Additionally, we require our suppliers to certify that the raw materials used in the manufacture of our products are not tested on animals. Our practices are certified by both PETA and The Leaping Bunny Program (CCIC) as cruelty-free.


UD Decides Not to Sell in China

After careful consideration of many issues, we have decided not to start selling Urban Decay products in China. While several factors were important in reaching this decision, ultimately we did not feel we could comply with current regulations in China and remain true to our core principles. We know there are many progressive consumers in China who would embrace an opportunity to purchase non-animal tested products – our hope remains that we have the chance to offer Urban Decay products to these consumers someday in the future.

Following our initial announcement, we realized that we needed to step back, carefully review our original plan, and talk to a number of individuals and organizations that were interested in our decision. We regret that we were unable to respond immediately to many of the questions we received, and appreciate the patience our customers have shown as we worked through this difficult issue.

Since our founding in 1996, we have been committed to ending animal testing in the cosmetics industry. As demonstrated by the renewed support we have received from organizations like PETA and the CCIC, this principle remains at our core. Urban Decay does not test its finished products on animals, nor do we allow others to test on our behalf, and we require our suppliers to certify that the raw materials used in the manufacture of our products are not tested on animals. Urban Decay is proud to be 100% cruelty-free.

Vegan Products

If you see a purple paw print next to a product, Urban Decay certifies that it does not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Please note that within a product category, such as Eyeshadows, some shades will be marked with the vegan paw print, and others will not. We have an ongoing initiative with our laboratories to not only create shades (and entire product lines) that are vegan from the start, but also to identify which of our non-vegan products can be converted. In many situations, plant-derived or synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients become available. As long as we can deliver the same high-quality products with rich color and texture, we will convert that product to 100% vegan ingredients, so be on the lookout for new offerings. We are often asked which of our products do not contain animal by-products, and for those customers, we offer our paw.

Just found out that Urban Decay has decided against selling their products in China. This is what they wrote on their homepage! Great decision!! I still won’t by their products, since I have no confidence in them anymore, but at least they won’t be testing on animals (yet) ! How do you feel about this?

    I feel totally the same as you do, even though they decided not to sell anymore, I guess it’s more for money reasons than for personnal believes, so I won’t buy from them anymore

      I tried commenting on your blog as well, but it was a bit confusing with another language! Love the colors on your eye-make ups! 😀 Really nice shades and make up!
