bareMinerals has confirmed that it is truly cruelty-free. They don't test finished products or ingredients on animals, and neither do their suppliers or any third-parties. They also don't sell their products where animal testing is required by law.
In 2010, Shiseido acquired Bare Escentuals (also known as bareMinerals). This means that bareMinerals is now owned by a parent company that tests on animals.
Since then, the brand has remained cruelty-free and is currently not sold in mainland China, where animal testing is required by law.
bareMinerals is owned by Shiseido which is not a cruelty-free brand. If you prefer avoiding brands owned by a company that tests on animals, we recommend avoiding bareMinerals.
No, bareMinerals is not sold in mainland China.
Yes, bareMinerals is certified by Peta.
bareMinerals is cruelty-free but not 100% vegan, meaning that some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients.
We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their full animal testing policy. If brands answer all our questions and confirm that no animal testing is happening at any point during production and beyond, they're added to our cruelty-free list. All brands we add have confirmed the information above.
Vegan makeup products by bareMinerals are listed below. The brand also now offers a complete line of vegan skincare. This means that none of their vegan skincare products contain any animal-derived ingredients. Unfortunately, none of their makeup brushes are listed on their page of vegan products.
