California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act
On August 31, 2018 the California Legislature passed the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act.
"This bill would make it unlawful for a manufacturer to import for profit, sell, or offer for sale in this state, any cosmetic, as defined, if the cosmetic was developed or manufactured using an animal test that was conducted or contracted by the manufacturer, or any supplier of the manufacturer, on or after January 1, 2020, except as specified." - from Bill 1249
It has been an essential part of Crystal Bar Soap from the beginning to produce a beautiful product free of any animal ingredients and animal testing. We ensure that all of our suppliers are certified vegan and cruelty free!
This bill is such a essential part of the direction the world is moving, I understand that the vegan diet is not fit for everyone but I have strongly believe that vegan beauty is. Especially now there are hundreds of alternatives to all of your beauty products it doesn't take long to educate yourself on the brands you buy from and become a conscious consumer.
In celebration of this new bill I want to encourage everyone to take a look at the products they use daily. Just google the brand, if its a brand you want to support moving forward you can add that to your approved shopping list. If it's not, finish the product (don't waste it) than make a switch next time you want to fill up.
I have never put pressure on anyone to change the world in a day, this is about adapting a lifestyle that will lead to strong habits and long term success. I want you to be inspired to learn about the products you use and be able to support businesses that are making trying to make a positive impact.
