Is Kylie Cosmetics Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

Kylie Cosmetics is a wildly popular makeup brand created by Kylie Jenner but is Kylie Cosmetics cruelty-free and vegan?

Is Kylie Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?

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

However, it should be noted that Coty owns a majority stake in Kylie Cosmetics. Coty is a corporation that does test on animals when required by law.

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.

    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!
