As of 2021, I will no longer be regularly updating this list of Natasha Denona vegan products as all of their vegan products are now clearly marked. Check their website for the most up-to-date and accurate information on which products are vegan or not.

Below is a list of Natasha Denona products that were marked as “Vegan” on their website.

  • Foundation X+ Full Coverage Fruit Complex
  • Invisible HD Face Powder
  • Transfix – Matte Concealer

  • Eyeshadow Base

    • #16 wooden rose and #17 Cherry Wood doesn’t have carmine
  • Lip Oh-Phoria
  • Mark Your Liquid Lipstick Matte
  • Mark Your Liquid Lipstick Metallic

Note: They previously told me none of their palettes are vegan because they all contain carmine. However, I recently noticed Natasha Denona’s Eyeshadow Palette #3 and #9 are now marked as “Vegan”. I checked the ingredients of these two palettes and I didn’t see carmine listed.

“Unfortunately our palettes are not vegan due to the inclusion of Carmine, a natural pigment derived from the cochineal insect. This is a very commonly used pigment in most cosmetics, foods, and skincare with alternative names such as “crimson lake” or “natural red 4″; but in order to adhere to the strictest standard of veganism and maintain utmost transparency with our valued customers, we cannot call our products vegan for this reason.”

Natasha Denona’s products are manufactured in: Italy

Natasha Denona does not claim to be a sustainable company.

Additionally, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Natasha Denona’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.

Is Natasha Denona‘s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Natasha Denona claims their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.

“We are always striving to make the best products with the highest quality ingredients. That being said, the majority of our products do contain natural mica. We can also confirm that the mica and mica based pigments we use in our products are ethically sourced. According to our raw materials suppliers declarations, no children are involved in the supply chain of this kind of pigments, including the mining, packing and transportation of mica.”

I hope this article helped you to understand Natasha Denona’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. ND’s last palette has crushed beetles in it so I guess it’s not cruelty free any more…(Bronze Palette)
