After working together for several months, the team at Kat Von D Beauty and the Logical Harmony team are very happy to announce that Kat Von D Beauty has now been certified as cruelty free by Logical Harmony! Kat Von D Beauty now appears on the Cruelty Free and Vegan Brands List!

I can now feel comfortable promoting Kat Von D Beauty as a brand that is cruelty free and has many vegan options, and can personally assure you that the Kat Von D beauty line is free of all animal testing in any form. This applies not only to the Kat Von D beauty brand, but to the parent company, ingredient suppliers, and any 3rd party brands that the company may work with. The brand has also stated that they do not and will not take part in any required by law animal testing.

While some products produced by the brand do contain animal ingredients, there are a lot of options that are not only cruelty free, but also totally free of animal ingredients and vegan as well.

In addition to providing Logical Harmony with the necessary statements of assurances to be included on the brands list, Kat Von D beauty is also going to be issuing a new statement about animal testing.

I am proud to say that Kat Von D Beauty products are never tested on animals – and never will be” – Kat Von D

This statement is repeated by the Kat Von D beauty team and Kendo. This statement from Kat has been seen on social media and will soon be on the brands website.

I also asked the Kat Von D Beauty team to provide the readers of Logical Harmony with an exclusive list of the current vegan options! As of August 2015, the Kat Von D Beauty vegan options are:

* The entire Shade + Light Contour Face and Eye Palettes are not vegan, but these shades within the palette are.

For those who are interested in the structure of the Kat Von D Beauty Brand, Kat Von D Beauty is owned by Kendo. Kendo is a sister company to Sephora. Kendo currently owns and produces the Sephora lines Kat Von D Beauty, Ole Henrikson, Bite, Elizabeth & James, Formula X, and Marc Jacobs Beauty. Before Kendo existed as a company, some of these brands were owned by Sephora. This is why some older posts and comments refer to these brands as Sephora brands. Sephora and Kendo are both owned by LVMH.  Kendo does not test on animals, but some of the lines that they own do test on animals as required by law. I have received assurances from Kendo that the Kat Von D Beauty line is not currently, nor will ever be, tested on animals for any reason.

Thank you to the Kat Von D Beauty team for going through the process to be added to the Cruelty Free and Vegan Brands List on Logical Harmony. We are very happy to have you on board as a cruelty free brand!

  1. Hi!
    Thank you for your blog!
    Do you know if kat von d sells her make up in China?

    Thank you!!

    1. Hi Alice,

      The Kat Von D Beauty line is not sold in China. 🙂

  2. In your list it says “Kat Von D Beauty – It should be noted that they are cruelty free, but their parent company owns other brands who are not cruelty free.”

    While this post says “This applies not only to the Kat Von D beauty brand, but to the parent company, ingredient suppliers, and any 3rd party brands that the company may work with.”

    So the parent company doesn’t test but owns other brands that test?

    1. That is correct. The company that owns Kat Von D is cruelty free, but owns other brands that are not cruelty free.

      1. Then the parent company isn’t cruelty-free… I don’t get it. If kendo owns Sephora Brand and that Sephora Brand tests on animal when required by law, then kendo isn’t 100% cruelty free and it should be mentioned in the C-F list as well next to Kat Von D’s name.

        1. Kendo doesn’t own Sephora or the Sephora Brand. They are sister companies and owned by the same larger conglomerate.

          1. Bridgette says:

            So the conglomerate that owns Kat Von D’s parent company isn’t cruelty free, correct?

          2. It depends on how you look at it. They are a business conglomerate that owns many brands. Not all of the brands that they own are cruelty-free but they, as a conglomerate, are basically just the business entity. The conglomerate, like many parent companies, doesn’t produce any products themselves and owns a large variety of brands.

  3. Hi thanks for the great post! Do you know if Marc Jacobs beauty test on animals? It says they don’t but do they get companies to test for them??

    1. Hi Rosie,

      Marc Jacobs Beauty has told me that they do test when required by law. They are currently on the Brands to Avoid section of the Brands List for this reason.

  4. Kendo is cruelty free? In your post about Bite Beauty it was said that they test where required by law? I love Bite and KVD. Are they both cruelty free? Sorry just confused. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Kendo doesn’t actually make any products, so they are cruelty free by default. What was mentioned in that post was that I had been previously told that their brands (such as Bite Beauty, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Formula X, etc) were tested as required by law. At first, many of these brands were owned by Sephora before Kendo was created as their sister company. I can see how it can be confusing. But each line is treated as its own brand under the Kendo umbrella, and Kendo is just a business brand. I hope this helps explain!

      1. Absolutely! 🙂 Thank you!

  5. So since Kendo owns other brands, like Ole Henrikson and Bite does that mean that buying from those brands won’t be financially benefiting any parent company that tests on animals?

    Thanks for all your hard work, Tashina! <3
