Origins line is cruelty free plus paraben free! I love their eye and face creams :)

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but Origins has recently been pulled off cruelty-free lists due to their decision to sell its products in China (which requires animal testing by law.)

Now that the EU has placed its animal-testing ban into effect, I’m curious to see what happens with some favorite brands now that they’ll have to choose between the two markets. The EU supposedly won’t stock their shelves with anything that’s been tested on animals, even if it was tested in some other country where it’s legal.

It’s getting increasingly confusing!
