Chantecaille is a high-end luxury makeup and skincare brand but is Chantecaille cruelty-free and vegan in 2020?
Is Chantecaille Cruelty-Free?
Chantecaille is Cruelty-free! None of Chantecaille’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Chantecaille 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.
Is Chantecaille Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Chantecaille has confirmed they only sell their products in Hong Kong and not in retail stores in mainland China.
Hong Kong is not part of mainland China and they do not have the same animal testing laws as China, so Chantecaille can sell their cosmetics in Hong Kong and remain to be cruelty-free.
It would only be an issue if Chantecaille was selling in retail stores in mainland China, but that is not the case.
Below is a snippet of a response I received from Chantecaille:
“We are only available for sale in Hong Kong where they absolutely do NOT test on animals, unlike Mainland China (where we do NOT sell) due to their animal testing laws. We have no plans to sell anywhere that animal testing is required as that goes against Chantecaille’s beliefs.”
Is Chantecaille Vegan?
Not all of Chantecaille’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Chantecaille does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Chantecaille vegan products.

Is Chantecaille Ethical?
Based in: the US
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any information on Chantecaille’s sustainability and environmental initiatives.
Giving Back Initiatives: Chantecaille’s Philanthropy Collections offer charitable support to environmental, social, and animal protection organizations. They’ve done some incredible philanthropy work and continue to use their platform and voice to protect animals and the environment, learn more here.
Ingredients and Formulations Claims: Chantecaille claims their skincare products are free of Phthalates, Sulphate Detergents, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Palm Oil, Synthetic Colors, Synthetic Fragrances and GMOs.
Response to Mica Sourcing: When I emailed Chantecaille 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:
“I’m happy to share that our Mica we use is responsibly sourced. We have inquired with the labs that produce our products and we can confirm that none of them use Mica sourced in India. We are members of the Responsible Mica Initiative, which means that our mica is sourced sustainably and without using child labor.
Here are the shades in our eye shadows that do contain Mina in them: Coriander, Ginger, Opal, Patchouli, Sesame, Smokey Topaz“
