Ciaté London is a cosmetic brand with a range of high-performance makeup and nail products but is Ciate cruelty-free and vegan in 2021? We’ve got the answers here!
Is Ciaté Cruelty-Free?
Ciaté is Cruelty-free! None of Ciaté London’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Ciate’s Animal Testing Policy
Ciaté has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of Ciaté London’s official animal testing statement:
Is Ciaté Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Ciaté has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“We do not yet sell any products in Mainland China or have any stockists there.“
Is Ciaté Vegan?
Not all of Ciaté’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Ciaté London does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Ciaté vegan products.
You can also find out which of their products are vegan as they’re all marked accordingly on their website under each product description. See below for an example.

Where are Ciate’s cosmetics made?
Ciate’s products are manufactured in: Mostly Italy, some in Korea, Germany or Thailand
Ciate recently launched a collection of ‘Plant Pot’ polish claiming it’s made with “sustainably sourced” ingredients and biodegradable glitter. The bottles from this collection are made from 10% recycled glass. And the packaging, polish bottles, and caps are “fully recyclable”.
However, there’s no word on whether Ciate plans on making their other nail polish collections more sustainable. I also couldn’t find any other information on Ciate’s responsible manufacturing practices, ethical ingredient sourcing, or environmental commitments.
Is Ciate’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Ciate claims their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor and they also use synthetic mica.
“We ensure that any natural mica that is used in our products is only ever sourced through ethically sound supply chains, which do not include child labour. We collect declarations from our suppliers to confirm this. Where we don’t use natural mica, we use synthetic mica. It is part of our company conduct that we do not allow Mica from unethically mined sources.”
I hope this article helped you to understand Ciate’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
