Dermablend is dermatological skincare and makeup brand known for its high-performance foundations and setting powders developed for the most sensitive skin but is Dermablend cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Dermablend Cruelty-Free?
Dermablend is Cruelty-free! None of Dermablend’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
However, it should be noted that Dermablend is owned by L’Oreal, a parent corporation that does test on animals when required by law.
Dermablend 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.
Dermablend Owned by L’Oreal
Note that Dermablend is owned by L’Oreal, a corporation that does test on animals when required by law.
Although Dermablend is owned by L’Oreal, the brand is committed to being and staying cruelty-free.
Is Dermablend Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Dermablend has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Below is what’s currently stated on Dermablend’s website:
Is Dermablend Vegan?
Not all of Dermablend’s products are vegan as some of their products contain beeswax. However, Dermablend does have some vegan options.

Is Dermablend Sustainable?
Dermablend‘s headquarters is based in: USA
Dermablend‘s products are manufactured in: USA
Dermablend does not claim to be a sustainable company.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Dermablend’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Is Dermablend‘s Mica Ethically-Sourced? When I asked Dermablend if their mica is ethically sourced without the use of child labor, Dermablend replied back and stated its parent company, L’Oreal’s ethical mica policy. L’Oreal is a founding member of the Responsible Mica Initiative and claims they ensure the responsible sourcing of Indian mica.
“Mica is a mineral used across various industries, including to a small extent, in the cosmetics industry, where it can be used as an effect pigment. Dermablend, a division of L’Oréal USA, represents less than 0.05% of the worldwide mica market, 98% of these quantities come from secured sources.
Today, more than 60% of L’Oréal’s natural mica comes from the United States while the rest is from other countries, including India. In India, mica mainly originates from socially and economically challenged regions where there is a risk of child labor, unsafe working conditions, and where the supply chain involves multiple people. In spite of these challenges, L’Oréal has committed to remain in India and ensure the traceability and transparency of our supply chain. We believe that discontinuing the use of Indian mica would further weaken the situation in the region. In addition, local NGOs and expert organizations are supportive of efforts made to secure the mica supply chain and thus improve the living and working conditions in the region.
