Yes, Franché Mineral Cosmetics and Chiral Skin Care is cruelty free.
Franché Mineral Cosmetics and Chiral Skin Care sells mineral cosmetics and skin care products manufactured in the USA. Their makeup products include foundation, concealer, eye shadow, blush, lipstick, and lip liner. Meanwhile, their skin care products include mist spray, moisturiser, cleansing mousse, serum, and cream.
Information about Franché’s cruelty-free stance is sparse on its official website. However, a quick check on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)’s Beauty Without Bunnies online list reveals that the cosmetic and skin care brand is certified cruelty free and vegan. PETA shares the definitions of cruelty free and vegan on its website, stating: “Global animal test-free recognizes companies and brands that have verified that they and their suppliers do not conduct, commission, pay for, or allow any tests on animals for their ingredients, formulations, or finished products anywhere in the world and that they will never do so in the future.
Global animal test-free and vegan recognizes companies and brands that meet the same requirements and whose entire product line is free of animal-derived ingredients. These companies are truly cruelty-free.”
To summarise, PETA states that “to be considered ‘cruelty-free’ under PETA’s Global Beauty Without Bunnies program, a company must not only ban animal tests but also refuse to use any animal-derived ingredients, such as honey, beeswax, or carmine, in its products.”
