When it comes to cruelty-free brands, there can be a lot of confusion about which brands are cruelty-free and which are not. In an attempt to make things easier, this post series hopes to help clear up the cruelty-free stance of some of the most asked about brands on Logical Harmony. A lot of people ask if NYX is cruelty-free. This budget-friendly beauty brand is very easy to find, so many people are curious if NYX is cruelty-free. Not only do they have their own stores, but you can find NYX in drugstores and Ulta locations all over.
Is NYX cruelty-free? Keep reading to find out the details.
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.
Does NYX have vegan products? NYX offers vegan false lashes, a couple of synthetic makeup brushes, and a couple vegan-friendly tools. They do not have makeup that they feel comfortable saying is free of animal ingredients. I have asked NYX about this, and they stated that because formulations and ingredients may change often they are not comfortable stating that any of their makeup is vegan-friendly because of this. NYX uses ingredients that could be from animals, synthetic, or from plant-based sources but may not always use the same ingredient in their products as it may vary from batch to batch. This means that one batch of a specific shade of product could actually be vegan, but another may not be.
Even though NYX does not have much in the way of vegan options, I do think it’s great that they are such an easily available cruelty-free brand. Some other cruelty-free content creators, such as Kristen Leanne, JKissa, Phyrra, and My Beauty Bunny feature NYX in their cruelty-free beauty content on a regular basis.
Below are some of the best-selling products from NYX:
