Wet N Wild is cruelty-free! They do not test on animals, can be found on PETA’s list, and do not sell their products in China. They answered my questions about their animal testing policy very clearly in this email:

Hello Kitty,

Thank you for contacting wet n wild!

We are happy to inform you that we do not test on animals at any point of our production nor do we purchase any materials from vendors who test on animals. Our products are made in China but not sold in China so we do not have to abide by their laws of animal testing. We love our fury, hairy, scaled and winged friends and we do not plan to animal test in the future.

We hope this helps and please feel free to contact us again!

Thank you so much,

wet n wild Beauty

Even better, Wet N Wild joined Leaping Bunny’s list of cruelty-free brands in 2015 and can be still be found on it.

Here they are on PETA in 2016:


And here they are on Leaping Bunny’s list in 2016, listed as Markwins (Wet N Wild’s parent company):


Woo! One of the few drugstore brands to remain cruelty-free!

  • You’ve helped me so much, Kitty! I swear, half the brands I was doing my giveaway for are animal abusers. Now I know who to avoid and who to keep around.

    • Thank you, that’s great to hear!

    but wet n wild is made in china.

    • Made in China is OK. Only foreign cosmetics that sell in China are not cruelty-free.

        If it’s made in China it’s cruelty free but if not they require testing? I was going to buy a gift pack of their nail polishes but noticed it was made In China where testing is ‘required’ so I don’t understand that distinction.

    How can they be cruelty free and be made in China?

    • They don’t sell their products in China.

  • Lexi Alexandra

    I was on their website just now, and in the section where you select your country, China is listed. Have they changed & started selling there now? 🙁

  • Typically if they have a distributor in China, this would mean that they’re selling the products in stores and not online. Does this help? 🙂

    • Lexi Alexandra

      Yes, thank you! I’m waving byebye to that nail polish company for their false claims 😉

    i looked on the leaping bunny website and didn’t see them listed

    • Eeva

      Yep, me too. Could not find Wet n Wild on Leaping Bunny lists, they state that they only have a Peta certitification?

    Do they test their nail polishes on animals? I was looking and absolutely none of my bottles from brand new to completely dried up say “not tested on animals” or have the cruelty free bunny like all the other Wet ‘N Wild Products.

    I’ve seen them over the years as well as I looked at a few of my Mom’s products all had it labeled on the product in the bunny or said it wasn’t tested on animals but not on the nail polishes 🙁
