Catrice Cosmetics is an EU-based, affordable, drugstore makeup brand, but is Catrice cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Catrice Cruelty-free?

Catrice is Cruelty-free! None of Catrice Cosmetics’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

Catrice Animal Testing Policy

Catrice Cosmetics 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, they do not allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

Below is what’s currently stated on Catrice Cosmetics’ website:

Catrice Cruelty-Free Claims
Catrice Animal Testing Statement

Catrice has a detailed animal testing statement on their website, stating:

“We do not carry out or commission any testing on animals for the manufacture of our products. This applies to the end products as well as to all ingredients. Our suppliers are also required to certify in writing that their products have been manufactured without testing on animals.”

Is Catrice Sold in China?

All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals, however, Catrice Cosmetics confirmed their products are not sold in China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.

Catrice is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.

You can find Catrice’s cruelty-free products on Amazon, Ulta, and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Is Catrice Vegan?

Not all of Catrice’s products are vegan as some contain animal-derived ingredients like beeswax, lanolin, honey, and/or carmine. However, Catrice does have some vegan options.

Is Catrice Cosmetics Ethical?

Based in: the EU

Products made in: the EU

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any public information on Catrice’s sustainability and environmental initiatives.

Giving Back Initiatives: As part of Catrice’s Our Heartbeat Project, for every Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer sold, 10% of proceeds go to organizations that aim to help women achieve financial independence.

Ingredients and Formulations Claims: Some of Catrice’s products claim to be Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Perfume Free, Alcohol Free and Oil Free, check product description to find each product’s claims.

In addition, Catrice is launching CLEAN ID, a new line of 100% vegan and clean beauty products. Catrice explains,

“This line will be our gold standard of clean beauty: 100% Vegan with naturally derived ingredients, while progressing toward shorter ingredient lists and more sustainable packaging. It will be free of microplastic particles, silicones, mineral oil, PEGs, petrolatum and much more”
