L.A. Girl Cosmetics is an affordable American makeup brand, mostly known for its drugstore concealer and foundation but is LA Girl cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is LA Girl Cruelty-Free?
LA Girl Cosmetics is Cruelty-free! None of LA Girl’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
LA Girl’s Animal Testing Policy
L.A. Girl Cosmetics 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.
In addition, below is LA Girl’s cruelty-free statement found on their website:
Does LA Girl Sell in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, LA Girl has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“No, we do not currently sell our products in China.”
Is LA Girl Vegan?
Not all of LA Girl’s products are vegan as some of their products contain carmine, lanolin, and other animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, LA Girl does have some vegan options.
Please reference below for a list of LA Girl vegan products.

Is LA Girl Sustainable?
LA Girl’s headquarters is based in: USA
LA Girl’s products are manufactured in: Some are made in the USA, others are made overseas including in China
*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.
LA Girl does not claim to be a sustainable company.
Additionally, I wasn’t able to find any available information on LA Girl’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Is LA Girl’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? LA Girl claims they use a combination of “ethically-sourced” natural mica and synthetic mica. Synthetic mica is made in a lab and therefore not associated with child labor. However, LA Girl did not specify where their natural mica was ethically-sourced or mined from and how they track or audit to ensure no child labor was involved.
“In regard to your inquiry, we use both ethically sourced natural mica and synthetic mica. The mica used does not contain any animal ingredients.”
