Julep is cruelty-free and their nail polish is 100% vegan. Keep in mind that other products sold by Julep are not vegan. Julep has confirmed that their suppliers don’t test on animals. Here’s an e-mail from a rep:
Thank you for your inquiry about Julep products. We absolutely DO NOT test on animals! Never have, never will! We only “test” on humans. One of the great things about Julep is we have 4 Nail Parlors and amazing customers that let us test and try products on them all the time!
Some of our products do contain animal-derived ingredients (milk, beeswax, etc). Our polishes are completely certified Vegan! We do not have suppliers who are involved in animal testing and we do not sell our products in China. Julep has been completely cruelty free since we started our brand in early 2008.
I hope this convinces you even more how Julep can be a brand you can be proud to wear. Please let us know if you have any more questions. Until next time, have a wonderful day!
