The Vegan Diaries: Congrats to DOVE for going Cruelty Free

This is wonderful news. I used to love Dove products, especially their soaps but when I went vegan, I stopped using Dove because they still tested on animals. Well that’s over now. Dove is officially certified cruelty free by PETA! This is huge. Dove is a major brand name and it shows that if they can go cruelty free… any big brand can… I’m looking at you L’Oreal.

Sophie Galvani, Vice President of Dove ,said, “For over 30 years we’ve used non-animal approaches to assess the safety of our products and ingredients. Dove has enacted a policy prohibiting any animal tests, anywhere in the world, and we are delighted to say that our products will now carry PETA’s cruelty-free logo to assure our customers that Dove does not, and will not, test on animals. ”

 

It’s 2018… there’s no reason why we should be testing products on animals. For so many years animals have been tortured just so we can look good. How can you feel good knowing your products have harmed innocent animals.

 

Today, it’s so easy to buy great brands that are cruelty free and I’m so happy that Dove is now on that list.  Always look for the bunny on the labels and if there is no bunny, chances are, they’re still testing on animals!
