Is NEST Fragrances Cruelty-Free?
NEST Frarances is Cruelty-free! None of NEST Fragrances’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
NEST Fragrances Animal Testing Policy
NEST Fragrances claims on their website, “we do not test our products on animals and we only do business with vendors and organizations that do not conduct product testing on animals.”
However, in order to be considered cruelty-free by ethical elephant’s standards, we need to also ask if their ingredients (not just their finished products) are tested on animals and if they have policies with their raw material suppliers to ensure they also do not test on animals?
NEST Fragrances responded to my inquiries and told me,
“I understand the nuance within your question, but when we say “none of our products” that also includes the ingredients and raw materials that are components of it. We also apply the same policy and set of rules to our partners, and make sure they showcase solid references and documents in order for us to work with them.”
Is NEST Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, NEST Fragrances has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
NEST Fragrances has met all of our criteria in our Cruelty-Free Checklist.
Is NEST Fragrances Vegan?
NEST claims their fragrances do not contain any animal-derived ingredients but NEST Fragrances makes no claims that their products are “vegan” with “100-percent certainty.”
Although NEST Fragrances state that they do use synthetic ingredients instead of animal-derived ingredients in their fragrances, but because they are reluctant to claim their products are “vegan”, I personally wouldn’t recommend NEST Fragrances as being safe for vegans, at this time.
NEST is Cruelty-Free, but Not Vegan
NEST Fragrances is cruelty-free and doesn’t test on animals. However, NEST does not claims its products are vegan therefore NEST Fragrances is not included on our List of Cruelty-Free & Vegan Brands Directory.
In order for brands to be included in our Cruelty-Free List, they must be cruelty-free and offer some vegan products.
I hope this article helped you to understand NEST Fragrance’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
