ColourPop is a popular LA-based makeup brand known for its affordable makeup products but is ColourPop cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is ColourPop Cruelty-Free?
ColourPop is Cruelty-free! None of ColourPop’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
ColourPop 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 ColourPop’s official animal testing statement:
Is ColourPop Vegan?
Not all of ColourPop products are vegan as some of their cosmetics contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, ColourPop does have some vegan options.
ColourPop Vegan Product List
On ColourPop’s website, they have a list of their products that are NOT vegan. That means the products on that list contain some type of animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
When I asked how often the non-vegan list is updated, a representative from ColourPop told me they update this list prior to every new product/shade launch so it’s the most reliable and up-to-date list available.
But you can also easily find out which of their products are vegan by checking under each product description on their website and find the Vegan icon. See below for an example.
Is ColourPop Sustainable?
ColourPop’s headquarters is based in: USA
ColourPop’s products are manufactured in: California
ColourPop is known as the ‘fast fashion’ of cosmetics where they’re constantly releasing new products and ‘limited edition’ collections. As a result, they’re encouraging hyperconsumerism and mindless spending. Not to mention, all of their products are packaged in plastic and ColourPop does not disclose targets or commitments to reducing their plastic packaging.
Ingredients and Formulations Claims: Only ColourPop’s Lippie formula claims to not “contain any nasty ingredients like Parabens or Sulfates.” I couldn’t find any other product claims.
Is ColourPop’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? ColourPop states their mica is sourced from the US, Japan, and Europe but did not address whether their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.
“Thank you for reaching out! Mica in our products is sourced from the U.S., Japan, and Europe.”
I hope this article helped you to understand ColourPop’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
