Timeless Skin Care is Cruelty-Free

Timeless has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

By our standards, we would consider Timeless Skin Care to be Cruelty-Free.

Below is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on Timeless Skin Care’s website about its animal testing policy:

Is Timeless Skin Care Cruelty-Free?

What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?

Timeless Skin Care has confirmed they only sell their products online and not in retail stores in mainland China; therefore, they are not required to test on animals.

“Our products are sold in China but since it is done through online sales, our products are not required to be tested on animals.”

As of May 1, 2021, some imported ordinary cosmetics can be exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. However, for the most part, animal testing is still legally required for most imported cosmetics in 2022.

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.

At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, or any third parties.

Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.

Timeless Skin Care is Not 100% Vegan

‘Vegan’ in cosmetics can refer to an entire brand that is 100% Vegan or a specific product is vegan.

In the case of Timeless, not all of their products are vegan. But they have some products that are suitable for vegans.

How to know which of Timeless’ products are vegan?

All of Timeless Skin Care’s vegan products are clearly marked on their website.

In addition, the following is a snippet of the email response I received from Timeless when I asked if all of their products are vegan:

“The only animal by-product we carry is emu oil, which is made from the adipose tissue when the animal is processed for consumption. The emu oil is found only in our eye cream. Otherwise, all other products are vegan-friendly.

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.

Some common animal products used in cosmetics include carmine, lanolin, snail mucus, beeswax, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, animal-based glycerin, keratin, and squalene.

There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.

Where are Timeless’ products made?

Timeless Skin Care states on its website,

“Our founder believes in the quality of small batch manufacturing made here in the USA, specifically in Southern California.

I hope this article helped you to understand Timeless Skin Care’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!

  1. Find a vegan substitute for emu oil in your eye cream. I like your hyaluronic aid products but to support you when you use emu oil in one of your products is a real ethical dilemma for me.
