Essence is Europe’s #1 cosmetic brand offering fun, high-quality makeup products at an affordable price. But first I wanted to know, is Essence cruelty-free?

Is Essence Cruelty-Free?

Essence is cruelty-free! Essence does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.

On essence’s website, they have a very impressive and thorough statement of their animal testing policy that also includes a comprehensive list of FAQs regarding their cruelty-free status.

I love it when a cruelty-free brand is so open and transparent about their animal testing policy like essence has done with their informative website!

We are happy to add essence to our list of cruelty-free brands!

Is Essence Vegan?

Not all of Essence makeup products are suitable for vegans as some contain beeswax, carmine, and/or other animal products however Essence does offer some vegan products that do not contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
