Is Stila Cruelty-Free?

Is Stila Cruelty-Free?

In 2013, the cruelty-free community was very sad when Stila announced that they were no longer cruelty-free and were testing on animals when required by law. Since that time, one of the most common questions I would get from readers was, “Is Stila cruelty-free?”. It’s been a few years, and now there is some really exciting news about Stila to share with you – Stila has now been added to the Cruelty-Free Brand List!

Courtney from Phyrra and I have both been talking to Stila for a while about the Stila cruelty-free status. Recently the brand was able to talk to both of us about their practices, answer a lot of questions, and provide a lot of details about their cruelty-free stance.

Is Stila cruelty-free? The answer is yes! As a brand, Stila is cruelty-free – there is no animal testing occurring anywhere. They have also withdrawn from markets that require animal testing and have updated the Stila cruelty-free policy to reflect this change.

Stila was sold in China but has completely removed themselves from the Chinese cosmetic market. This is an amazing change and I am so excited to see a brand change their policies to become cruelty-free, even if it means leaving an entire market to do so. This is something that the cruelty-free community has been asking a lot of brands to do and it’s wonderful to see a brand like Stila make that change. Thank you, Stila!!

I am working on getting a list of the vegan options from Stila, so please sit tight and I will share that when I am able to. I can’t wait to pick up some of the cruelty-free and vegan options from Stila to use on YouTube!

  1. To “reward” Stila, I just bought their Beauty Boss Lip Gloss in “Payday,” and they’ll be getting more business from me in the future!
