Although Eyeko’s customer service representative wasn’t too helpful at first (I had to laugh at the grow gel part), they eventually informed me that Eyeko is in fact cruelty-free and vegan and that their raw materials aren’t tested on animals, either by Eyeko, their suppliers, or third parties. Eyeko is not sold in China.

Initial reply:

Hi Suzi,

Thank you for your email and concern.

We are happy to say that we do not test on animals. Our products are 100% cruelty free to animals.

At this point in time we have not registered with a particular organisation to declare this but it is something we take pride in across all of our products. All of our products contain botanical ingredients to nourish the body. We are completely paraben free as well.

We do not sell in China currently.

The Brow Gel contains broccoli extract and there are numerous fruit extracts in our products as well.

Kind Regards,

In-depth reply:


We do not test on animals, not even our raw ingredients.

Nor do we support any companies who test on animals.

They are also vegan friendly. [Edit: Not all Eyeko products are vegan-friendly.]

We do not sell in China and our suppliers do not test.

I hope this helps!

Kidn Regards,

  • Hi, I was about to buy their mascara, but then I noticed some of their products are made in China. I’ve sent them two messages on Facebook, and although they’ve seen it there’s been no reply. For a page where there’s ‘typically a reply within an hour’ this is very dodgy. I then posted a comment on one of their videos and as far as I can see it’s been deleted.
    Does anyone know whether it’s possible to make a product in China, but not have it tested on animals if the product is not going to be sold there? It just sounds a bit contradictory, and very suspicious…

  • I’m so sorry this happened and I apologize for not looking into the ingredients myself. Thank you for bringing this up though. I updated the post and I’ll follow up with Eyeko as well. It’s definitely not okay.

    • Hey there, Thanks for the reply. I started looking into EYEKO a little more closely yesterday. On their website it simply claims ‘We are against animal testing. Please see our full list of ingredients available on each product page.’ (copied directly from their site). I have a couple of problems with this as I feel this is very vague. Stating you are against animal testing is not actually stating that the company doesn’t practice it. Mentioning a full list of ingredients is available, again, isn’t proof of being cruelty free either. No where does it clearly state that the company doesn’t test or that they do not hire third parties to test for them. They also aren’t anywhere to be found on PETAs cruelty free list. I contacted them via Instagram to point this out to them and got a (almost rude) reply that their ingredients are listed on their website – so not vague at all (according to them anyway) and that they are cruelty free. I went on to point out that listing ingredients does not in fact prove or classify them as cruelty free so they ARE being vague and mentioned their use of beeswax in their products (so not vegan friendly). They deleted my comment and their original reply and came back with something along the lines of (and I can’t quote it as they have also deleted the post…): We are cruelty free. Please check ingredients for vegan products.
      My gut feeling is they aren’t being clear on the subject and they are a little testy when questioned about their policy. Most companies today take pride in being cruelty free and state it clearly on their websites and are happy to inform their paying customers of this. Therefore it is a company I personally will stay away from until they can be more upfront and clear on the matter or appear on PETAs cruelty free list.

  • Haha! Those poor broccoli that have to die for us to enjoy their extracts in brow gels 😉

    Thanks for this post, I was just double checking on whether eyeko is cruelty free 🙂
