Is Kosas Cruelty-Free?
Is Kosas Cruelty-Free?

Kosas Cosmetics is a luxury green beauty brand, all of their products are free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, synthetic fragrance, they also claim to be gluten, egg, nut, and soy-free, but is Kosas cruelty-free or vegan?

Is Kosas Cruelty-Free?

Kosas is Cruelty-free! None of Kosas’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

In addition, Kosas is Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free.

Kosas Cruelty-Free Status

I couldn’t find any information on Kosas website about their animal testing policy.

So I emailed Kosas and they have 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.

Kosas Sold in China?

All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Kosas has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.

Kosas has met all of our criteria in our Cruelty-Free Checklist and is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.

You can find Kosas’ cruelty-free products at kosas.com, Sephora, Cult Beauty, Credo Beauty, and The Detox Market.

Is Kosas Vegan?

Not all of Kosas’ products are vegan as some of their products contain beeswax, lanolin, and/or carmine. However, Kosas does have some vegan options.

Below is a list of Kosas vegan products.
