Tashina at Logical Harmony has written an update to her original post after news that the brands have been certified by PETA. Please read it here
I didn’t realize until I read Phyrra’s update that PETA listed brands like AVEDA and Smashbox as cruelty free even though they sell in China! See Phyrra’s post here
I agree with Tashina and Phyrra that (for myself) these brands will have to stay in a gray area.
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
