We’d have been on the vegan listing as well except our mineral mascara and organic mineral tinted lip balms have beeswax.
We strongly stand against any form of animal testing and find it a pointless painful procedure. Animals compositions are different than ours, so even testing on animals isn’t going to have same effect as a product would on a person. You can visit PETA to see more information on the effects animal testing has on the test animals
Affordable Mineral Makeup™ is listed on PETA’s “do not test list” which means we do not test any of our products, nor are any ingredients in our products test on animals. We want our clients to know that not only are our products natural and safe for them, but also that they’ve never been used on animals nor harmed anyone (human or animal).
and, yes there is a process to go through to get PETA approval and be able to legally use their cruelty free logo
You must submit application, wait for approval after they investigate and review the application and in order to legally be allowed to use their logo you must pay the fee. Sadly many people don’t do that and they just place the logo on their sites, so make sure to check the listing at CaringConsumer.com “don’t test” list to ensure the company you’re dealing with is in fact listed with them and simply didn’t ’steal’ the logo.
