FLOWER Beauty is an affordable drugstore makeup brand created by Drew Barrymore but is FLOWER Beauty cruelty-free or vegan?
Is FLOWER Beauty Cruelty-Free?
Flower Beauty is Cruelty-free! None of Flower Beauty’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Flower Beauty 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.
Below is a snippet of the response I received from Flower Beauty:
“Thank you for your interest, we’re happy to help. We are a cruelty-free brand! All of our raw materials and finished products are not tested on animals. We personally have a team of regulatory professionals vet all raw materials and require substantiation to be consistent and compliant with our brand image, as well as the EU Cosmetic Directive which bans animal testing. We do not sell our products on markets where animal testing is required. We will enter these markets once animal testing is no longer required. Flower Beauty has a unique partnership with Maesa Group, a brand incubator that helps us engineer our beauty products. Maesa also strongly disagrees with animal testing and is a cruelty-free company, and is compliant with all of the requirements of the EU Cosmetic Directive Animal Testing Ban.“
Is Flower Beauty Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Flower Beauty has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Is FLOWER Beauty Vegan?
Not all of FLOWER Beauty products are vegan as some do contain carmine, beeswax, collagen, caviar, lanolin, or other animal-derived ingredients and by-products. However, Flower Beauty does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Flower Beauty vegan products.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any public information on Flower Beauty’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Ingredients and Formulations Claims: Flower Beauty claims some of their products are Gluten-Free.
Response to Mica Sourcing: When I emailed Flower Beauty to ask whether the Mica they use in their cruelty-free makeup products is ethically sourced without the use of child labour, they responded stating:
“Thank you for your interest. At FLOWER Beauty, we assure you that we have a strict code of conduct with all our vendors and suppliers explicitly forbidding child labor, bribery, unethical treatment, and slavery. Our team continuously performs audits to ensure they meet our standards.”
