Wet N Wild is Cruelty Free, Not All Vegan

Wet N Wild is Cruelty Free, Not All Vegan

Drugstore cosmetic brand Wet N Wild has long been known for their large variety of makeup at extremely affordable prices. Not only is this easily accessible line cruelty free, but they also offer a variety of vegan items.

As of May 2019, Wet n Wild is sadly no longer cruelty-free. You can read more about it in this post – Is Wet n Wild Cruelty-Free?

As previously stated – With each brand that I want to feature, I’m sending the company an e-mail asking them to clarify if they use animal testing at any point in the process as well as if they use any animal ingredients or by-products. I want readers of Logical Harmony to be getting verified information that I know is correct. When I contacted Wet N Wild, they sent me the following reply :

Thank you for contacting wet n wild.

As a PETA-certified cruelty-free brand, for the thirty years we’ve been around, we’re proud to say that we have never and will never test on animals, and neither do any of our third party vendors.

While most of our products are vegan, we do carry some products that contain carmine. However, carmine is relatively harmless and is considered an all-natural ingredient. The FDA states that it has found no evidence of carmine posing a “significant hazard” to the general population. But, in rare cases, people have been found to be allergic to it.

Here is a list of our vegan products:

Editor’s note: Since this time, some ingredient formulas have changed. Wet’n’Wild does keep a vegan list on their website but some of the items included do contain animal ingredients (such as beeswax or lanolin). It’s in the best interest of any vegan reader to read the ingredient list before purchasing. – January 28, 2014

      I don’t. I haven’t been able to get any responses from them about which of the current products and shades are vegan-friendly. 🙁

    It’s frustrating when brands don’t keep their websites up to date, and when they don’t respond to emails as well it becomes even worse! I recently purchased a few things checking the ingredients for carmine per their FAQ, and when I got home and double checked I found some very dubious looking ingredients. Triethanolamine for instance can be animal derived or not, so without their confirmation I’ll never know. I had really hoped they had been more forthcoming with you 🙂

    Do you receive updates on Wet n Wilds vegan list?

      Hi Kelsey,

      I do not. I also want to note that the list has become less accurate over time and the brand does not keep it completely up to date. There are products listed on the list (on their website) that now contain beeswax and other animal derived ingredients.

    Some of the products (ie mascara) is made in China. I’m concerned about that, considering the toxic baby formula, among other items have allegedly come from China. Any thoughts please?

      Hi Steph,

      There’s a difference between cruelty free, vegan, and natural cosmetics. With any chemical ingredients you do potentially run certain risks. I think that those concerned about these things should likely purchase natural cosmetics.

    That’s good to know! That’s nice that they got back to you with a comprehensive list. Good for you for being a great investigator!!
