Stellar Beauty is a line of makeup that promises to be high-performance with inclusive shades and prices. But is Stellar cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Stellar Cruelty-Free?
Stellar is Cruelty-free! None of Stellar Beauty’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Stellar Beauty Animal Testing Policy
On Stellar Beauty’s website, they claim to be “100% Cruelty-Free”.
Unfortunately, there is no standard or legal definition for the term “cruelty-free” where it can mean whatever companies want it to mean. So, I emailed Stellar Beauty to ask for more information about their animal testing policy.
Below is a snippet of the responses I receive from them:
“We do not test any of our products on animals. We are a cruelty-free brand and many of our products are also vegan.”
“We do not work with or deal with any suppliers that do any animal testing at any stage of the process.”
Stellar Beauty has confirmed that they do not test their products on animals nor work with or deal with any suppliers that engages in animal testing at any stage of product development or manufacturing.
Is Stellar Beauty Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Stellar Beauty has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“We do not sell in China. Our products are manufactured in Toronto, Canada and are distributed exclusively by Sephora in North America only.”

Is Stellar Beauty Vegan?
Not all of Stellar Beauty’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Stellar Beauty does have some vegan options.
Below is a list of Stellar Beauty vegan products.
You can also find out which of their products are vegan as they’re all marked accordingly on their website in the product description. See below for an example.
Stellar Beauty Vegan Product List
As of 2021, I will no longer be regularly updating this list of Stellar Beauty 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.
The following Stellar Beauty products are suitable for vegans and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Additionally, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Stellar Beauty’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Is Stellar’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Stellar Beauty has been non-responsive when I asked if their mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.
I hope this article helped you to understand Stellar Beauty’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
