• Aveda owned by Estée Lauder!

    Jag var inne på House of Frasier (på Oxford Street) och såg till min glädje att de hade Aveda-smink!
    När jag sedan kollade på PETA så dog glädjen dock; även om Aveda inte testar på djur så ägs de av Estée Lauder (PETA) som gör det, så se upp!

    Så här sa Aveda om sitt smink när jag mejlade dem innan jag visste att de ägdes av Estée Lauder:

    När jag pratade med dem på House of Frasier och frågade om Aveda-produkterna innehöll t.ex. bivax (frågade flera gånger) så svarade båda som jobbade vid Aveda-produkterna nej. Väldigt konstigt! De borde veta vad produkterna innehåller om de jobbar med Aveda varje dag och om de inte vet svaret på en sådan fråga så borde de säga det istället eller kolla upp det!

    Det är alltid bäst att dubbelkolla saker!

    I was excited to see that House of Frasier in London (Oxford Street) had Aveda make up!
    The excitement didn’t last long though; although Aveda don’t test on animals, they’re owned by Estée Lauder (PETA
    ) that do carry out animal testing, so watch out!

    I emailed Aveda and asked them about the products and which ones are vegan before knowing they’re owned by Estée Lauder. This is the answer I got:

    When I talked to them at House of Frasier I asked them several times if their products contained beeswax and both employees said no. Strange huh! They should be able to answer such a question if they work with Aveda everyday and if they don’t know the answer they shouldn’t say anything at all or check to make sure.


    It’s always best to look things up to be sure!
