Is Kokie Cosmetics Cruelty Free?

Is Kokie Cosmetics Cruelty Free?

Recently I reached out to ask, Is Kokie Cosmetics Cruelty Free? Kokie Cosmetics is a new brand that is carried at Walmart. Their products are all very affordable.

Below is what I asked and their response to my questions.

I wanted to reach out to see if Kokie Cosmetics is cruelty free? My audience is interested in learning about your cruelty free status. Yes! 

Are the finished products tested on animals by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company? At no point before, during and after the production of our cosmetics ever tested on animals!

Are the products tested on animals during the production process by the company, a parent company, a third party or an affiliate company? Again, at no point before, during and after the production of our cosmetics ever tested on animals!

Do you have documents from your ingredient suppliers to show that they are not testing on animals for your brand or any other brand? We have files on hand from ingredient suppliers that show proof of our cruelty-free status.

Does your manufacturer purchase any ingredients from laboratories that conduct tests on animals? Do you have documents to support this? Again, we have files on hand from ingredient suppliers that show proof of our cruelty-free status.

Are the products sold in any markets where animal testing is required by local law and regulations (China, etc)? Kokie is currently available only in the US and Canada.

Are the products vegetarian? (no animals killed for the products – i.e. some forms of collagen, squalane, etc.) Kokie Cosmetics has not undergone the proper screening to be officially labeled as a vegetarian/vegan cosmetics brand. This is in the process and an update, should there be one, would be announced on our social media handles in the future.

Are the products vegan? (i.e. product ingredients that come from animals like lanolin, honey, milk, etc. – being vegan is NOT necessary for my blog, but a bonus for my vegan readers) Again, Kokie Cosmetics has not undergone the proper screening to be officially labeled as a vegetarian/vegan cosmetics brand. This is in the process and an update, should there be one, would be announced on our social media handles in the future.

Is your company certified by Leaping Bunny? (NOT necessary, but definitely a nice thing! It’s free to become Leaping Bunny certified, plus they promote you to over 10 million people. Read more about it here ) We are not certified by Leaping Bunny, however, we will look in to this! Thanks for sending over the info–!

I feel comfortable saying that Kokie Cosmetics is cruelty free.

  • PETA’s website does not list them as cruelty free. The fact that they have anything to do with Korea or China would prevent me from purchasing.

    This must have been a sponsered interview!??

    • 1. I do not charge people to be on my cruelty free list.
      2. This is not a sponsored post. When I do sponsored posts (which are pretty infrequent, less than 25% of my content), I clearly mark them as sponsored.
      3. These are the answers that Kokie gave me when I emailed them.
      4. If you don’t feel the answers from Kokie are conclusive you should reach out to them directly and ask them questions you feel would be more complete. These are the questions that Logical Harmony and My Beauty Bunny also ask brands.

      Have a nice day.

  • Why wouldn’t they include the fact on their labeling?? It seems like something they would want to advertise!

  • Ok so I bought one of their liquid. Lipsticks at Meijer and then read the label and in says made in PRC ( Peoples Republic of china) so since china by law requires animal testing doesnt this mean they are not actually cruelty free ? Despite what they say …I am just a bit hesitant….which would suck because I used it before reading the label and loved it but I may not want to use it anymore.

    • Items can be made in China & be cruelty free. If they are not sold and tested in China, they are cruelty free. So many brands make stuff in China & then sell them in the USA.

  • One problem… some of their products are made in Korea. Korea is not know for their animal rights; they have dog meat farms. I’ve not looked at every label, but I saw Korea on their eyebrow pencil. Their nail polish is made in the USA.
