Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below!

Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options ๐Ÿ’œ

NYX Cosmetics Is Now Vegan-Friendly!

This post may contain affiliate links.

NYX Cosmetics are sold in most drugstores and they’re incredibly affordable where you can buy a NYX lipstick for as low as $4!

NYX Cosmetics was acquired by a non-cruelty-free giant cosmetic brand, L’Oreal in 2014, but thankfully NYX Cosmetics has maintained their commitment to a strict no animal testing policy and is a cruelty-free brand. They’re just now owned by a parent company that continues to test on animals.

If you choose to look pass NYX’s affiliation with L’Oreal and want to know which of NYX’s makeup products are considered vegan, then you’ll be happy to know that recently NYX has started labeling some of their makeup as being vegan.

This post originally (dated Sept 4, 2015) included a statement from NYX claiming that none of their products were considered vegan but this post is updated to reflect NYX’s recent changes.

NYX Vegan Product List (2019)

NYX’s vegan product list can be viewed on their website here.

The following is a list of NYX vegan products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products:

Face – NYX Vegan

Foundation

Face Primer & Setting

Concealer

Bronze, Contour & Highlight

Blush

Eye Makeup – NYX Vegan

Eyeliner

Eyebrows

Mascara

Eye Primer

Eyeshadow & Palettes

Lips – NYX Vegan

Nails

  • Nail Lacquer

Makeup Remover


This vegan product list is updated as frequently as possible, please be aware that formulations may have changed since the publication of this post. If you have new information to suggest one of the above products isn’t vegan, please email me at info@ethicalelephant.com to let me know.

    If nyx cosmetics is owned by a non cruelty fee company (L’Oreal) then even though nyx make up is ‘vegan’ wouldn’t some of the money fund cruel animal experiments?
    Very unfortunate and annoying…everything is connected

    Hi- I buy basically ONLY NYX products. I love the quality but the cruelty-free part was essential to me. I happened to notice that in stores (as of the past two weeks), the newest stocked products no longer have the little “bunny” symbol or the words “cruelty free” anywhere on the packaging. Do you happen to know why?

    The stay matte not flat foundation contains beeswax sadly.

      Hi Jay,
      I just checked the ingredients and you’re right, the NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation does indeed contain beeswax. Thanks for catching that and for letting me know! I’ve now removed it from my list and have emailed NYX to inform them that this foundation shouldn’t be on their vegan product page =)

    Hi,

    I’m wondering how pure and safe NYX products are and how compliant to their cruelty free stance considering some of their products are being manufactured in The People’s Republic of China.

    I think it is absurd that China requires products entering into China from foreign countries with high standards of purity and quality control to be tested on animals. The horror stories coming out of China with respect to the lack of quality control, the addition of impure and hazardous materials to everything from baby formula to animal treats (and being exported to the countries they demand testing from!), and the counterfeiting of myriad products goes unchecked. Hypocrisy of the highest level.

    Personally, I think companies should care more about their domestic clientele and refuse to sell to a country that is forcing them to abandon their core beliefs. The companies that are capitulating to the inhumane demands of this country are potentially losing more customers than they are gaining, if for no other reason than putting a higher value on profits rather than ethics.

      Hi Jaime,
      Cosmetics MADE in China are not required by law to be tested on animals. It’s only if they’re SOLD in China. And NYX cosmetics are NOT sold in China so they are not required by law to be tested on animals.

      You can read up more on this here! >> https://ethicalelephant.com/china-animal-testing-laws-cosmetics-made-china-vs-sold-china/

      Hi there, thank you for this list. I saw that they have NYX at Shoppers. Just wanted to clarify something though. They have a Butter Lip gloss with a wand applicator and your list says Butter Lipstick. Is that the same product? There’s colours like Angel Food Cake if that’s any help.

      • Vicky Ly
        March 5, 2019

        Hi Cailin,

        Good question. The NYX lip gloss contains beeswax and therefore it’s not vegan.
        Whereas the NYX Butter Lipstick that is vegan comes in a bullet lipstick form.

        Hope that helps to clear things up for you!
