Is Black Up Cosmetics Cruelty Free?

I’m very happy to tell you that Black Up Cosmetics is cruelty free. Here’s the questions I sent them and the responses I received back.

Where to Buy
Sephora, Black Up Cosmetics

Are the finished products tested on animals by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company? We confirm that none of the black Up products have been tested on animals. The new cosmetic regulation (Réglement Cosmétique 1223/2009) prohibits animal testing and we fully comply with the European Regulation.

Are the products tested on animals during the production process by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company?We confirm that none of the black Up products have been tested on animals during the production process.

Are any ingredients used in the products tested on animals by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company? We confirm that none of ingredients from black Up products have been tested on animals.

Are any ingredients used in the products tested on animals by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company to comply with any laws and regulations? We confirm that none of ingredients from black Up products have been tested on animals.

Are any ingredients used in the products tested on animals, or do they contain ingredients that have been tested on animals, by the company, an ingredient supplier, an affiliate company, or a 3rd party supplier in order to comply with laws such as TSCA, CEPA, ELINCS, EINECS, REACH, NICNAS, SCCP, etc? None ingredient have been tested on animals for cosmetic purpose.

Are the products sold in any markets where animal testing is required by local law and regulations (China, etc)? As far as I know, only United Kingdom and Europe prohibits animal testing on finished product and on ingredients part of the formula. We do not have point of sale in China where animal testing are required.                                                   

Are the products vegetarian? (no animals killed for the products – i.e. some forms of collagen, squalane, etc.) We confirm that no animals are killed for the products.

Are the products vegan? We have products that may contain ingredients of animal origin. These ingredients are lanolin, beeswax and carmine.

Is your company certified by PETA or Leaping Bunny? Our company is not certified by PETA or Leaping Bunny. We are interested in those labels and we are going to look into that. We are aware that today it is an important thing.

  • I’ll be looking into this! I’m near the very end of my Milani foundation (also cruelty free and caters to POC) and it’s hard for me to find any affordable foundations that caters to warm undertones. So I’m excited! Thanks for the post!

  • I think it is fantastic that the brand is genuinely cruelty free in all aspects of its products. There should be more of this.
    It is also fantastic that there is a beauty company that produces products for those with darker complexions, because many brands do not cater for this segment of the female population at all.

    • Iman Cosmetics, Black Up and Black Opal are the three that I know that are exclusive for POC. I feel like the most well known brands that are great for all skintones are probably Cover FX, NARS and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. There are some great indie brands that have full shade ranges like Silk Naturals, Dreamworld Minerals and Meow Cosmetics. I’m really thrilled by Black Up Cosmetics response to my questions. They were so thorough and kind!

  • Thanks for checking them out. There are so few lines for WOC, it’s nice that there is a CF option for them. Plus, I’m being tempted by some of their lipsticks. 😉
