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.
