BECCA Cosmetics is a popular makeup brand widely known for their award-winning highlighters and radiance-boosting primers but is BECCA cruelty-free and vegan?
Is BECCA Cruelty-Free?
Yes, BECCA is Cruelty-free! None of BECCA’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
However, it should be noted that BECCA Cosmetics is owned by Estee Lauder, a parent corporation that does test on animals when required by law.
BECCA has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals, they do not allow others to test on their behalf, their suppliers also do not test on animals, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing by law.
Below is what’s currently stated on BECCA’s website:
Is BECCA Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, BECCA has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
BECCA Acquired by Estee Lauder
In 2016, BECCA was acquired by Estee Lauder, a corporation that does test on animals when required by law.
Although BECCA is owned by Estee Lauder, the brand has remained committed to being a cruelty-free brand.
