Born in Japan, raised in New York, Surratt creates luxurious makeup that is customizable, refillable, and easy to use. But is Surrat cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Surratt Cruelty-Free?
Surratt does not test any of its products, ingredients, for formulations on animals, anywhere in the world. However, Surratt sells makeup brushes that are made with natural animal hair like goat, Blue Squirrel, or sable hair.
Surratt Animal Testing Policy
Surratt Beauty 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, they do not allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on Surratt’s website:
Is Surratt Beauty Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Surratt has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Is Surratt Beauty Vegan?
Not all of Surratt’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Also, Surratt sells makeup brushes that are made with natural animal hair like goat, Blue Squirrel, or sable hair.
Surratt Beauty does have some vegan options.
Which of Surratt Products are Vegan?
Surratt Beauty claims on their website that all of its cosmetics are vegan with the exception of:

Also, note that Surratt Beauty makeup brushes are made with animal fur and therefore, they’re not vegan.
Is Surratt Beauty Ethical?
Surratt’s products are manufactured in: Mostly in Japan
Eco-Friendly Packaging Initiatives: 40% of Surratt’s collection is refillable including their liquid liners and brow pencils with refillable ink cartridges.
Is Surratt’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Surratt claims their products are “ethically-sourced” without the use of child labor. However, it’s not clear where their mica is mined from and how they trace or audit to ensure no child labor was involved to source their mica.
“All of our products are ethically sourced and are cruelty free without the use of child labor. We work with our suppliers to conduct routine audits/inspections to make sure everything is up to code.”
I hope this article helped you to understand Surratt 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!
