It's currently unclear whether or not Essie is cruelty-free, since they haven't provided enough information. Some brands that fall under this category refuse to share their complete animal testing policy or answer questions about their cruelty-free status.
There have been claims about Essie being cruelty-free. We’ve looked into these claims and contacted the brand directly, however we weren’t able to confirm that Essie is truly cruelty-free. Even though Essie claims not to be sold in China, they still test on animals where required by law. If Essie is able to answer all our questions and clarify their position, we will move them to the appropriate list.
Essie is owned by L'Oréal, a company that tests on animals. Not only is Essie not cruelty-free but neither is their parent company.
It's unclear if Essie is available for sale in stores in mainland China.
No, Essie is not certified by any organizations.
Essie might offer some vegan products, however because this company is not cruelty-free, we recommend avoiding any products they offer even if they are vegan.
