Gosh Cosmetics does not test on animals! : their email response

Edited 13th May 2014:

I just needed to update this post, initially was titled as “Gosh Cosmetics is cruelty-free!“, which is a misnomer and unless a brand is certified Vegan, with a Leaping Bunny logo, is PETA approved or certified in any other way by a solid organization, then they shall not be tagged as “cruelty free”, because “cruelty free” should only be applied to vegan products with certifications. Read more on this awesome tumblr website, they have tonnes of information, go read up and learn something!

So a week ago, i emailed Gosh Cosmetics, You know.. they sell in Sa Sa as well. I really wanted to buy from them but i was just really cautiousΒ  because i wasn’t sure if they were animal friendly.. and that is kind of an issue for me. So… what did i do then? I emailed them. Just to find out some truth and make me feel better. I badly wanted their skin perfecting kit, highlighter & concealer. It’s all-in-one and i can sculpt/contour on one palette… So yeah. That’s the first thing i will get from them real soon.

Anyway, just wanted to share with you guys the email, for all of us conscious shoppers πŸ˜€

I emailed the following:

Hello!

Warm greetings!

I have been very fascinated and tempted to get your products, i just have a
few questions i would like to understand from you though..Can i just ask Β if
you guys are cruelty-free, meaning do you support animal testing and/or have
third party suppliers whom test ingredients on animals? Also, i would like
to ask if you guys use any animal by-products too? If you are cruelty free,
it doesn’t state anywhere on your packaging or on your site, which is why i
would just like to ask..

Thank you kindly for reading and really hope to hear from you soon! πŸ™‚

Regards,
Asfa

 

And they replied the following:

Hi Asfa,

We do not test any of our products on animals, this includes the ingredients
used and the finished product. I hope that this information helps you.

Regards,
Sinead

Yay!

So Gosh Cosmetics are really nice, although i still cannot find anywhere on their site if they are cruelty-free or not, nor on their packaging. So that still kind of puzzles me, but for now, this should suffice eh? It doesn’t take much for you to find out, just email companies if you are concerned about anything. πŸ™‚

Thanks Gosh Cosmetics for the prompt reply and for being cruelty-free!

Yeah. So i can go craaazy now and lust after things on their website.

p/s: I’ve been more than slightly obsessed with Kimbra and remixes of her songs, but anyway below is my favourite of her original song (aside from Two Way Street). She has a really strong powerful voice, reminiscent of Amy Winehouse (you will love Kimbra, trust me bae) and this video was my favourite, it had a message (if you read YT comments) and the styling was just so, so gorgeous. She is super sexy and expressive in this. Go watch it!

  1. The biggest question that companies like to avoid is: do you sell your product in countries that require animal testing by law?
    I’m not sure about Gosh off the top of my head, I’d check with My Beauty Bunny or Phyrra- they have the most up-to-date lists :3

    1. Oh no! i forgot to ask that too. 😦 But thanks so much for the reminder and suggestion! πŸ˜€ i guess i will go check it out, just that where i come from it’s pretty hard to find affordable brands, but of course, no excuses! haha.

      1. I definitely understand! It’s a tricky lifestyle, but I kind of like the challenge. It keeps me on my toes! Good luck!
