The Inkey List 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.
“Founded by Colette Laxton and Mark Curry in 2018, The INKEY List was born from a belief that better knowledge powers better decisions. We know that the world of beauty, and particulary skincare, can be confusing. But we also know that people are curious and want to understand more about their skin so they can make the right decisions. Not just now, but for its ever changing needs.”
Although The Inkey List is not owned by a parent company that tests on animals, Unilever Ventures and John Mills Limited have invented in the brand. This means that they each own a percentage of The Inkey List. If you prefer to avoid purchasing from cruelty-free brands that are owned by a parent company that tests on animals, we recommend that you do not purchase from this brand.
