I reached out to Dose of Colors a while back to find out about their animal testing policy. As you can see from their statement below, they do not test on animals and are committed to not selling to markets which require animal testing.
The only grey area is whether the ingredients are tested on animals. They said that the lab they use knows they are cruelty free and purchases the ingredients, but they did not state that they can guarantee that the ingredients are cruelty-free. As always it is up to you to make a judgement call but I’m going to classify them as cruelty-free.
|Me||Feb 2, 2014||Hi there,
Can you please tell me if your products are tested on animals?
|Dose of Colors||Feb 5, 2014||Hello,
None of our products are ever tested on animals. They are also vegan.
|Me||Feb 15, 2014||Hi there,
Thanks for getting back to me. That’s great that your products are vegan. When you say that your products are never tested on animals, does this include finished, unfinished and raw materials by yourself or a third party? Also, do you sell your products in countries that require animal testing, like China?
|Dose of Colors||Feb 16, 2014||Hello,
We do sell to all countries. We have shipped orders to China and haven’t had any problems. We will in no circumstance test on animals. If China asks us to test on animals, we will simply not offer our products in that country. Our lab is in Los Angeles. Our products are tested by us only. Our lab staff and chemists test also but they understand we are cruelty free and only test on themselves. Raw materials are ordered from our labs chemists. So in conclusion, yes we are a real cruelty free company.
