Is NYX cruelty-free? Yes!

NYX is a completely cruelty-free brand. There is no animal testing occurring on their products or ingredients by NYX, a parent company, or any companies that they work with. NYX also does not test on animals when required by law.

Who owns NYX?

While NYX is cruelty-free, NYX is owned by L’Oreal and L’Oreal is not cruelty-free. NYX was purchased by L’Oreal in 2014. However, I think everyone should decide for themselves how they feel about parent companies who test on animals.

  1. I read your article about NYX being cruelty free and I purchased some products. I was very upset when I noticed later that the products are made in China. That means that they are tested on animals, right? Please check the information is correct.

  2. But if I buy NYX’s products, the money will go to L’Oréal. So I am supporting not cruelty free company..? I know this is everyone’s choice but there are so many cruelty free companies that we should reinforce

    1. Everyone feels differently about this, and that’s okay. I personally want to help people find as many cruelty-free brands as possible so that, no matter where they are on their cruelty-free journey, it feels like something that’s easy to do. At the end of the day, I think that supporting any cruelty-free brand is better than supporting a brand that is not.
