NYX 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.
“Nyx professional makeup is certified and acknowledged by organizations, such as peta, as a cruelty-free brand. We are committed to producing 100% cruelty-free cosmetics. We do not test any of our products on animals. Our brand was born, with love, in LA – the land of makeup and makeovers – where everyone can make it. A colorful city where people fulfill their creative dreams, where diversity is the norm, and self-expression is celebrated. From the coast to the valley to the glammed-up core, LA’s colorful personality is our home, our heart, and our muse.”
In 2014, NYX was acquired by L’Oréal, a company that tests on animals. Since the acquisition, NYX has maintained the same team as well as the same values. They have remained cruelty-free and have never entered the Chinese market.
NYX is owned by L'Oréal which is not a cruelty-free brand. If you prefer avoiding brands owned by a company that tests on animals, we recommend avoiding NYX.
No, NYX is not sold where animal testing is required by law.
Yes, NYX is certified by Peta.
NYX 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.
Although NYX is not a fully vegan brand, they offer plenty of vegan options. The following face, eye, and lip products are completely free from animal-derived ingredients. You can also click here and go to the vegan product section on their official website.
