What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

ELEMIS Cruelty-Free & Vegan Status (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

ELEMIS is a British luxury spa and skincare brand specializing in anti-aging products. ELEMIS is available at Nordstrom and Ulta. But first, I wanted to know Is ELEMIS cruelty-free or vegan?

Is ELEMIS Cruelty-Free?


Yes. ELEMIS is cruelty-free; ELEMIS does not test their products or ingredients on animals.

UPDATE: ELEMIS is now owned by L’Occitane, a corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019. ELEMIS’ animal testing policy remains unchanged since this acquisition, we will update this post as new information becomes available.

ELEMIS Animal Testing Policy (2019)

ELEMIS animal testing statement (2019)

On ELEMIS website, they claim “ELEMIS do not test on animals.” This was obviously not enough to warrant ELEMIS as a cruelty-free brand by our standards so I emailed ELEMIS to inquire more about their animal testing policy.

Below is the response I received from ELEMIS:

Elemis Ltd has always been against animal testing. Elemis has never and will never test on animals. Nor has Elemis ordered such tests by any third parties.

Elemis specialises in natural caring ingredients of the highest quality and safety. All finished products have been extensively tested over time, on our own staff, human volunteers and or by non-animal laboratory trials.

The European Cosmetic Directive banned all animal testing of finished products from September 2004 and ingredients used within products from March 2009. They enforce this directive and dictate what is safe and what’s not. Elemis strongly supports this position and will do everything possible to keep driving non-animal testing alternatives and always approach development in an ethical manner.

We do not use slaughterhouse waste in any of our products. None of our perfumes contain animal extracts and we do not use whale or blubber oils. We do make use of honey, beeswax, milk, milk whey and eggs.

We continue to work alongside partners and suppliers who share our beliefs and who approach their day-to-day operations in an ethical manner, purchasing accordingly.

Elemis wishes to contribute to your well-being by promoting safe, high quality spa and skincare products, with ease of mind and conscience.

ELEMIS also confirmed to me that none of their products are sold in China, where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

I am satisfied with ELEMIS’ response and clarification about their animal testing policy, I am happy to add ELEMIS to ethical elephant’s cruelty-free brand list!

Is ELEMIS Vegan?


Not all of ELEMIS products are vegan, they do some animal by-products like Honey, Milk Protein, Milk Lipids, Egg Yolk Protein and Beeswax. But ELEMIS does offer some vegan skincare products.
