Email to the Company
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions.
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
This is how L.A. Colors responded:
Please note that we currently do not have a list of our vegan items as we have a very extensive line of products.
Some of our products do contain Carmine (which is derived from an insect) and Lanolin which is derived from sheep’s wool.
If you are interested in a specific product, please provide us with the item number/description and we can specify for you. Please feel free to contact us should you have any further questions and/or comments.
In regards to Animal Testing, please be certain that our products are NOT tested on animals. None of the raw materials or manufacturing processes through finished goods are tested on animals. Our parent company, Beauty 21 Cosmetics Inc. is also part of the cruelty-free PETA program.
