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. How can NYX say they are cruelty-free if they are not vegan? Testing on animals is bad, but abusing animals in every way is bad. Make-up with animal products in them are still cruel, because these animals are treated just as bad as the animals that are test subjects.

  2. So NYX still using animal inggredient in its product right?!

  3. Hi, I just want to ask. How can NYX say they’re cruelty free when their lipsticks(Liquid Suede & Soft Matte Lip Creme) are made in China and China by law requires animal testing. I’m confused?

    1. Products that are made in China are not required to be tested on animals. It’s only products that are sold there.

      1. That’s interesting. I was wondering the same thing. I personally don’t buy product that are owned by companies that test on animals. For example, I stopped buying products from The Body Shop for this very reason. I had no idea that NYX was owned by L’Oreal. This is such sad news. I love their products, but I can’t continue to buy their products any longer. Lets face it the money is going to a company that knowingly tests on animals, and L’Oreal is one of the biggest animal testing cosmetic companies out there. Such a shame! x

        1. I believe that The Body Shop was recently sold to a 100% cruelty-free company in Brazil. Probably why they’ve undergone such a huge change in packaging, marketing image etc.

  4. Maybe I’m misreading or missing something, but there seems to be a contradiction in this. You say that there is no animal testing by a parent company, but right below that L’Oreal is recognized as the parent company and L’Oreal does test on animals. Can you clarify?

    1. Of course! NYX is owned by a parent company that tests their own products on animals, but NYX products are not tested on animals by the parent company. That is a common misconception with them, so it felt important to include it. If you are wanting to avoid cruelty-free brands with a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then NYX would not be for you.

  5. OMG YES
