It’s no secret that China requires animal testing on foreign cosmetics. However, they don’t require animal testing for non-cosmetics such as beauty tools and brush cleaners, which is why the brand Beautyblender has been able to sell in China while remaining cruelty-free.

Spread the word.

Last month, Beautyblender launched , which is a product that falls into the umbrella of cosmetics that require animal testing by the Chinese government.

I've received questions as to whether or not Beautyblender will be removed from my cruelty-free list after this foundation launch, and I'm happy to tell you that haven't been removed -- and they won't be!

Fortunately, Beautyblender has confirmed that they are NOT selling this product in China, and have no plans to do so in the future. Beautyblender is and will remain cruelty-free even after their foundation launch according to the brand.

Though Beautyblender sells its sponges and sponge cleaner at Chinese Sephora locations (shown in the screenshot below), their foundation is not stocked there.

The new is also vegan in addition to being cruelty-free. Here's the full ingredients list:
