Coliro (Finetec Pearlcolors) sent their reply today. And it is good news.
Coliro/Finetec is cruelty-free : they don’t test on animals and neither commission other parties to do so.
Not only are – as they have been in the past- the Finetec Pearlcolors completely free of animal derivatives, as well as the manufacturing process being free of any animal derivatives (and of course cruelty-free), there is something even better.
The mica raw material supplier for Finetec is member of the Responsible Mica Initiative.
This is a quote of the Initiative that Coliro/Finetec provided me with :
“ENGAGE MULTIPLE STAKEHOLDERS UNDER A COALITION FOR ACTION TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FAIR, RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE MICA SUPPLY CHAIN IN BIHAR & JHARKHAND THAT IS FREE OF CHILD LABOR AND PROVIDES RESPONSIBLE WORKING CONDITIONS”
I found the Quote source here.

I have sent out more enquiries to companies, concerning updating their profile on here;because they brought out new products . There are also companies I have written to for the first time.
Here is the lot of them:
- I wrote to Faber-Castell about their brushes (update), their new neon markers and their new white-as-snow marker and their blackout marker.
You find a list of Faber-Castell’s products here.
- I wrote to Etchr (Etchr Lab) for the first time
- I wrote again to Mon Marte
- I wrote to Gelli Arts for an update
- I wrote to Léonard (brush manufacturer) because they brought out brush sets labelled “vegan”
- to Coliro (Finetec Pearlcolors) for an update
- to da Vinci (Defet; brush manufacturer) for an update
I think those are all at the moment that I’ve written.
Although I am working my way through updating all my entries (please bear in mind that if I didn’t attach any date to an entry in the compendium, the information could reach back as far as 2017), I am open to hearing from you any companies you want me to write to. I’ll put them first. I know what time of year it is and if you are looking present-wise for your wishlist or someone else, or just because you need to let out your creativity, tell me about the company (maybe mention what product range as well, if they offer many); of course we need also to factor in the time it can take a company to reply. So the sooner, the better.
