A couple of vegan and clean skincare goodies I got from my first order from @thedetoxmarketcanada! 🌿✨ My skin has changed so much in just the past year alone. I went from very oily skin to acne-prone to eczema flare-ups and now surface dryness πŸ˜” So lately, I've been looking into the ingredients of all my skincare products and consciously trying to make an effort to buy clean, non-toxic, and organic products.  This is my second bottle of @oseamalibu's Blemish Balm, it's an amazing lightweight moisturizer that has really helped clear up my skin without drying it out or trigger my eczema. 🌸 I also wanted to try their Atmosphere Protection Cream which claims to hydrate and help provide barrier protection against visible damage caused by environmental stressors such as dry climates, wind and air pollution. 🌍 I’d love to know, what are some non-toxic & vegan skincare products/brands are you currently loving or would recommend?? πŸ’•

My lips are instantly and intensely hydrated thanks to @nclabeauty’s [NEW] 100% Natural & Vegan Lip Balm! πŸ’‹ They have 8 flavors to choose from including Red Velvet, Almond Cookies, Marshmallow, and Watermelon!! πŸ‰ πŸ‰ πŸ‰  This watermelon Balm Babe smells and tastes like watermelon candy! Formulated with shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado butter, and coconut oil.
I love how light and moisturized this lip balm feels and I especially love how it doesn't leave that waxy feeling behind πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Most lip balms on the market contain beeswax, lanolin, or honey, making them NOT vegan. And then there are some other brands that are NOT cruelty-free including Nivea, Chapstick, EOS*, Blistex, Aquaphor, and Vaseline.
*Note: EOS is sold in-stores in China but they claim that since they manufacture their products in China, they do not need to test on animals as required by law. However, EOS' products are still at risk of POST-market animal testing where Chinese officials will pull products off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company's knowledge or consent. So at this time, we do not feel comfortable classifying any beauty brand selling their products in-stores in China to be "cruelty-free" to our standards.

Is wet n wild Vegan or Cruelty-free in 2019?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Wet N Wild is an affordable drugstore makeup brand with a large selection of cosmetics for eyes, lips, nails, and face.

Is Wet N Wild Cruelty-Free?

{UPDATE: MAY 21, 2019} Unfortunately, Wet N Wild can no longer be considered cruelty-free since they have decided to start selling their products in-stores in Mainland China.

Wet N Wild was caught selling their products in-stores in mainland China and was recently exposed by Cruelty-Free Kitty. Please take the time to read through her very detailed post proving Wet N Wild products are indeed sold in mainland China.

Is Wet N Wild Vegan?

Wet N Wild does offer products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products but since Wet N Wild is no longer considered cruelty-free, by default, we would also no longer consider their products to be vegan.

    This is contrary to the article by PETA published Aug 4, 2109. https://www.peta.org/about-peta/faq/is-wet-n-wild-cruelty-free/

      In that aricle, PETA only addresses China’s pre-market animal testing requirements and laws, however, PETA doesn’t address the issue of POST-market animal testing. This is when Chinese officials will pull products off of store shelves in mainland China and test them on animals, this is often done without the company’s knowledge or consent.

      Cruelty-Free Kitty has an excellent follow-up article after PETA released their statement about Wet n Wild >> https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/news/wet-n-wild-not-cruelty-free/

        Cruelty-Free Kitty’s article was done in May whereas PETA issued their article in August. WnW is not testing on animals, China is. Might as well say that ALL brands are vulnerable to this if China gets their hands on them. Unfortunately I cannot seem to access the follow up article you mention in your response.

    Hi wet n wild megalast lipstick shade sandstorm and rosebud do they contain lanolin, carmin any animal derived ingredients plz answer me

      Hi Zaiba, I see both Rose-bud and Sand Storm on wet n wild’s “vegan product list” but you’ll have to ask wet n wild directly for confirmation as we no longer consider wet n wild to be cruelty-free as they were recently caught selling their products in mainland China where post-market animal testing may be conducted on the products they sell in China.

    The wet n wild coloricon “Mellow Wine” Blush has Carmine listed in the ingredients.

    Wet and Wild says its not tested on animals but is made in China. I thought products made in China required animal testing. I’m new to all this and trying to educate myself and make better choices. Ughh it seems like a battle

    Hi. Pearlescent pink has carmine in the ingredient list but it appears here it’s vegan.

    • Vicky Ly
      December 17, 2017

      Hi Valentina,
      On Wet N Wild’s website, they listed their Color Icon Blush in Pearlescent Pink as being vegan and that’s why it’s on my list too! But sometimes, products can be mislabeled by the company so I’m going to look into this.

      On their website’s ingredient list for the Color Icon Blush.. Carmine is listed under “May Contain” which doesn’t necessarily mean the product or shade contains carmine. The blush may have been made on shared equipment or machinery that also makes OTHER products that contain carmine, so trace amounts of carmine may cross-contaminate other products that was made on the same equipment. They put this under “May Contain” for people that are sensitive or allergic to carmine.

      Not saying that’s the explanation for the case of their blush here, but that could potentially be the reason why we’re seeing carmine listed. I’ll reach out to Wet N Wild to confirm whether Pearlescent Pink is vegan as they claimed.

    If you check Wet n Wild’s webpage, you’ll see that they clearly list “beeswax” as an ingredient in the MegaLength mascara, which obviously is not vegan. Probably goes for other products as well, just checked that one because it was my favorite.

    • Vicky Ly
      November 28, 2017

      Hey Helena!
      I just checked the ingredients for the MegaLength Mascara and I don’t see beeswax listed. The MegaLength WATERPROOF Mascara formula DOES have beeswax as the 2nd ingredient.

      They look almost identical in the purple tube, it’s hard to spot the difference but one says “waterproof” and the other doesn’t.

      They use different ingredients for the normal formula versus the waterproof formula, thank goodness! So, Wet N Wild’s MegaLength Mascara (not the waterproof one) seems to be vegan-friendly! =)

      I know it’s a little confusing but I’m happy to hear you checked the ingredients! Sometimes companies will change formulas without informing their customers. I try my best to keep this list as accurate and updated as possible so let me know if you spot anything else that seems off!

    Thanks! I’m so happy that veganism is steadily gaining popularity. Not just for the animals, but me too lol! I became a vegetarian at the age of 9 and was living a fully vegan lifestyle by 19. I’m 32 now, but b-in-the-d internet access was limited and websites provided very little information. I actually learned how to formulate cosmetics myself because advanced chemistry was easier than calling each company to ask about each ingredient in each product…

      Wow, that’s amazing Elissa! You’ve been meatless for so many years and it must have been awesome to see how much has changed for vegetarian/vegan options throughout the years! I’ve only been vegan for 5 years, and just looking back to the vegan options available in 2012.. it feels like a completely different century we’ve living in now! haha I also love how you started to make your own cosmetics! Maybe you should start a vegan cosmetic business yourself! πŸ˜‰ hahah
