Stila Cosmetics is a popular makeup brand known for their innovative and high-performing color cosmetics but is Stila cruelty-free and vegan?
Is Stila Cruelty-Free?
Yes, Stila is Cruelty-free! None of Stila’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Stila 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, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing by law.
“We are proud to advise that Stila Cosmetics is on PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) list of cruelty-free companies and we proudly display the PETA cruelty-free bunny on our website. We never test on animals and have our supply partners certify they also share this value and do not conduct any tests on animals.“
Is Stila Sold in China?
Stila Cosmetics is not sold in stores in mainland China. In 2017, Stila Cosmetics decided to pull out of selling in China, and therefore their products were no longer required to be tested on animals per China’s animal testing laws.
Shortly thereafter, Stila becomes certified cruelty-free by PETA.
Who Owns Stila Cosmetics?
Stila Cosmetics was previously acquired and owned by Estee Lauder but in 2006, they sold Stila to Stila Corp., an affiliate of Sun Capital (a private equity firm). Then later on in 2009, Stila was sold to Patriarch Partners, a New York-based private equity company.
Is Stila Vegan?
Stila currently makes no claims to being vegan or offering vegan products.
Unfortunately, Stila currently does not offer any vegan products and states:
“We do not claim to be vegan, however we do fully disclose the ingredient list on the product packaging as well as our website for your reference. Some formulations may include the following animal byproducts: being beeswax, carmine, and lanolin.”
Stila is considered cruelty-free and doesn’t test on animals, however, since Stila Cosmetics does not currently offer any vegan cosmetics, Stila is not included on our List of Cruelty-Free & Vegan Brands.
