Parent Company

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.

Is NYX owned by a parent company that tests on animals?

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.

Is NYX sold where animal testing is required by law?

No, NYX is not sold where animal testing is required by law.

Is NYX certified cruelty-free by any organizations?

Yes, NYX is certified by Peta.

Is NYX vegan?

NYX is cruelty-free but not 100% vegan, meaning that some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients.

How do you determine that brands like NYX are cruelty-free?

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.
