In 2016, IT Cosmetics was acquired by L’Oréal. This means that they’re now owned by a parent company that tests on animals. However, IT Cosmetics as a brand has since remained cruelty-free and has kept the same leadership team in place.
Here’s a statement by Jamie Kern Lima, Co-Founder and CEO of IT Cosmetics:
“At IT Cosmetics our mission is to make the world more beautiful through our products, through our actions and through our belief that every woman is beautiful and deserves to feel her most beautiful. Our makeup and skincare products are not only game-changing in their innovation, they are also life-changing for real women everywhere. Partnering with L’Oréal and utilizing the power of their global infrastructure will help us scale our mission in an even bigger way and we couldn’t be more excited.”
