It has been confirmed by Kylie Cosmetics that they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to do so for them. Additionally, they do not permit their suppliers to conduct animal testing on their products when required by law. The company does not sell its products in mainland China or any other country requiring animal testing.
Kylie Cosmetics would be considered cruelty-free by our standards.
*Kylie Cosmetics is owned by Coty, an organization that allows some of their other brands to test on animals.
Whether you support or boycott cruelty-free brands owned by non-cruelty companies is up to you. This is a question without a ‘right’ or wrong’ answer. Although you are free to disclose what you feel comfortable with, I believe it’s important to tell readers that Coty is the majority owner of Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie Cosmetics is 100% Vegan
All Kylie Cosmetics products contain no animal-derived ingredients or by-products, and Kylie Cosmetics has confirmed all of its products are vegan.
What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?
Since Kylie Cosmetics does not sell its products in retail stores in mainland China, the company is not required to test its products on animals.
As of May 1, 2021, some imported ordinary cosmetics are exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. As of 2022, the majority of imported cosmetics will still be subject to animal testing.
It should be noted that the label ‘cruelty-free’ is not defined legally. Various people may understand it differently. However, Cruelty-Free generally implies that no animals are tested. All stages of product development do not involve animal testing of ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
The Cruelty-Free Checklist is the method ethical elephant uses to assess a company’s cruelty-free policy. By doing so, the brand ensures no animal testing was conducted by itself, by its suppliers, or by third parties
