So-called “Cruelty-free” products have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years, but let’s take a step back and ask, what exactly does it mean when cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning products are labeled as “cruelty-free”?
.
Products that are labeled as “Cruelty-Free” generally means they weren’t tested on animals, however, there is no standard or legal definition as to what is and isn’t allowed to be labeled as “cruelty-free”. So companies can call themselves and their products “cruelty-free” and it can mean whatever THEY want.
.
Misleading? — Yes.
Illegal? — No.
.
The FDA, responsible for regulating cosmetics labeling in the US, states on its website, “Consumers sometimes ask about use of claims such as “Cruelty-Free” or “Not Tested on Animals” on cosmetic labeling. Some cosmetic companies promote their products with claims of this kind in their labeling or advertising. The unrestricted use of these phrases by cosmetic companies is possible because there are no legal definitions for these terms.”
.
Unrestricted Use. No Legal Definition. — “Cruelty-Free” is now being used as a buzzword by marketers wanting to cash in on the trend.
.
But not ALL cruelty-free companies are liars and imposters. Some brands are genuinely committed to not testing their finished products and ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
.
But HOW do we know which cosmetic brands are telling the truth and are truly cruelty-free in 2020?
.
❶ Ask brands if their products or ingredients are tested on animals either by the company, their ingredient suppliers or commissioned to a third party and if they allow animal testing when required by law.
❷ Look for @leapingbunnyprogram brands --the most trusted cruelty-free certification program available!
❸ Check @ethicalelephant’s Cruelty-Free Brand Directory List where we have verified each and every brand's cruelty-free status before we list them (link in bio!)
.
 Together, we can end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
.
Thank you for choosing cruelty-free! 🐘 💕

“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Is Kylie Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?

Kylie Cosmetics is cruelty-free in 2019; none of Kylie Cosmetics’ products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

There is no official statement on Kylie Cosmetics’ website about their animal testing policy except for this short proclamation: “Kylie CosmeticsSM by Kylie Jenner products are not tested on animals.”

So I reached out to Kylie Cosmetics’ to verify their animal testing policy and received confirmation that Kylie Cosmetics does not test on animals and that they work closely with their suppliers to ensure their ingredients are not tested on animals. Kylie Cosmetics has also confirmed to me that they do not sell in-stores in Mainland China, and therefore they are not required to test on animals as per China’s laws.

I am happy to add Kylie Cosmetics to our list of cruelty-free brands!


Is Kylie Cosmetics Vegan?

Not all Kylie Cosmetics’ products are vegan as some contain beeswax, carmine, or other animal-derived ingredients or by-products, however, Kylie Cosmetics does have some vegan options.

Please find a list of Kylie Cosmetics vegan products below.

    Is there an actual INGREDIENTS LIST FOR HER PRODUCTS? I think what goes into the actual products is JUST as IMPORTANT as it being vegan and cruelty free. She does not list the ingredients on her site or at least I could not find it which is so strange to me!

      Hey Leawna,

      I just updated this list today and although they added a bunch more products to the original list that I published, I don’t see any products from their new Christmas collection on the list. They told me “Any products that are new or not listed are either not vegan or will be added to our list as soon as we receive confirmation!”

      I’ll try to keep this list as updated as possible though! =)
