Email to the Company

Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions. 

  1. Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
  2. Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
  3. Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
  4. Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
  5. Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
  6. Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?

This is how Lime Crime responded:
