    If they’re truly cruelty-free, why wouldn’t they seek certification?

  • Solar Luna says:

    I also contacted them by both calling and sending an e-mail. Not only are they “cruelty free” in terms of animal testing, but they also don’t get their mica that came from child labor. Now THAT is what I call ethical. Speaking of mica and ethics, why aren’t you calling out Lush? If you had the guts to call out Lime Crime for their unethical practices, why not do the same to Lush? Don’t tell me you don’t care if innocent children die just for the sake of your makeup. Please. I don’t think you’re like that. I’m not saying testing on animals is OK. It’s not. But so is child labor. In fact, both child labor and animal testing are equally just as unethical.

    • It’s awesome that their mica is ethical as well. Lately I’ve been more and more interested in everything fair trade, sustainable, and ethical. I haven’t heard anything about Lush and mica but I’d love to learn more.

    • Mari says:

      Hello, I love cruelty-free products and I don’t want to use mica due to that child labour, do you know makeup brands without child labour?
      Bare minerals is one of them, greetings
      Thank you.

  • Thanks for the info!
