Well some companies are run by pro-israel CEOs, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they fund israeli apartheid. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is a proud Zionist but denies financially supporting israel.
Shop within the Shiseido umbrella if you can afford it (Nars, Clé de Peau) or the LVMH umbrella if you can stand it (Make Up For Ever, Benefit, Marc Jacobs, Sephora brand). ACI owns some of my faves: Cargo, Anna Sui, Stila, Fusion. Independent companies like The Balm, Lorac, Hourglass, Chanel, Cover FX, Girlactic, Melt and Sugarpill are some of the best out there.
I avoid Estée Lauder and L’Ôréal, who own companies like M•A•C, Urban Decay, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Shu Uemura, Lancôme, Clarisonic, Darphin, Maybelline, YSL, Armani, NYX, La Mer, Fresh, and Keihl’s.
I never touch touch anything owned by Nestlé, Coke/Glacéau (Smartwater, Vitamin Water, Dasani, Evian, etc), Proctor and Gamble, Revlon and so forth.
Finally, download the Buycott app, which recognizes tons of bad-news SKUs.
I was stopped and frisked twice at the station today and while I was on the train I had like 6 cops hassle me over my train ticket/ID. Mind u, there were 3 whites n 5 Asians on my carriage…… Not one of them was hassled, only I was. I’m soooooo sick of having to deal with this shit simply bc I’m Arab/Muslim like we re not all terrorists literally 0.0000001% are…….cnt wait to finally get the eff outta this country
